Arm Candy – The Coach Bag / Knockoff Comparison

January 14, 2011 6 Comments

The guy on your arm says a lot about you.

Don’t believe me?

Well, think about some of the other things you hang on to, and what message they send. Your male companion/accessory is no different. Here’s why…

Perceived Value: An opinion of what something is worth, unrelated to its actual value.


You experience perceived value every day. Think about fashion for a second, specifically, those ultra expensive designer handbags that you can’t get enough of. Millions of dollars are spent each year, to convince you that these higher-end products are worth the extra cost, and that you NEED to have them. The perceived value of Coach, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, among others, is totally unrelated to the actual value of their products. In actuality, they’re just bags. Bags carry things, and last I checked paper or plastic would suffice with that. The high perceived value of these products is based upon their exclusivity—the fact that other people will recognize their fine craftsmanship, know that they were expensive, and as a result associate you, the owner, with the images of wealth and taste that these designers have paid dearly to create.

a...b....C

“Yes, but what does this have to do with me,” you ask? Well if you were carrying a crappy, unattractive, fake bag, the opposite situation would be true. You’d be viewed as unstylish, or thrifty, or even clueless.

So when you give your time to guys who are not worthy of your time, you are lowering your perceived value. You may have convinced yourself he looks like the real thing, but the truth is clear to everyone else.
