We've all been there before. You see someone wearing a shirt or a pin of a band you love, so you approach them. But when you ask them about it, they stare at you blankly, unaware of what you're talking about. In other words: It's not about the music, it's about the fashion.
For those who can't relate, try thinking about it as a team jersey instead. You try to bond with someone over the jersey they're wearing, only to realize they're wearing it because they like the color. Sure, people can wear whatever they damn well please, but it sure is a bummer for authentic fans. And that's exactly what's happening in the world of high fashion.
