Regarding underwear purchases, the three of us who voted said we have not changed our purchase habits since September. This goes along with a tweet I received from Jamak last week: “Heard on CNBC: There is a waiting list for Hermes Birkin Bag. That and lingerie seem to be recession proof.”

Regarding the choice between a luxury car or a luxury watch, exactly half of us voted for the car, and the other half for the watch. I wish I knew the voters’ reasoning!
