A woman in a vintage store was shopping with a male who I assume was her significant other, and would casually hold up items of clothing to let him approve or not.

People read books on the subway with book covers so others won’t know what book they’re reading. Why do they cover their books, but wear loud brand attire and use tote bags with a company name on it?

It is interesting to me how often I see American Brands. I have seen too many Dean & Deluca tote bags. Also a few Trader Joes tote bags.
