In Tokyo there’s a public school
Which adopted a rather odd rule
“You can’t come in here
Without Armani gear”
As cheaper clothes look so uncool.

    …schools here have been doing that for years…you could only buy the clothes from a specified outlet even though they were much cheaper outlets…brown envelopes may be involved…

    This is normal in private education. The Eton uniform costs GB£1,000 per child, including two tail suits (for a twelve-year old). This is to indoctrinate children with the conviction that conspicuous consumption is normal. They’ll grow up, get a GB£200,000 per anum job and still only feel like they’re “scraping by”. The 1% have to be deliberately trained to be that greedy.
