The Theory of the Leisure Class 有閒階級論

有冇人聽過Thorstein Veblen?佢係一個美國社會學家,寫左一本書叫有閒階級論(The Theory of the Leisure Class
),係入面提出左炫耀消費呢個概念。Veblen認為,人係會通過對物質生產無促進嘅消費嚟展示自己地位。呢一種行為亦會表現係時尚方面。

舉例而言,白領階層會打領呔著皮鞋,去話俾人知自己並不需要從事體力勞動,因為呢兩樣衣物係會明顯咁制約到肢體活動。將呢個理論應用於闊腳褲,就可以得出闊腳褲係superior clothing這一結論,因為闊腳褲嘅褲腳直徑大,一個人著住闊腳褲係好難係廚房/工廠等等體力勞動工作場所活動嘅。呢一點坊間亦係有所留意;正正係因為呢個原因餐廳先至要求炒散員工著黑色褲。規定側面佐證左闊腳褲係優勝衣物這一論點。
