Probably, because of the limited availability of many products. The popular items were always the ones that are hard to get and this is true in this case for the high quality products.

And personally, I think German cars are better, Italian food is better and the women also look better, in addition those are only a few segments.

On contrary US and Canadian lifestyles appeal to me a lot more then European and people are in most cases a lot kinder.

(This is from someone who lived half of his life in Toronto the other half in Europe.)

Hmmm, maybe you should actually go there and find out...And Europe is a big place, there are many different countries, cultures and ethnicities that exist there.

Food is definitely better there. Women as well.

If your idea of European culture revolves aroung Gucci and Louis then....Welp, don't know what to tell you.
I concur 100%.
By the title of your post you may be referring to material items.  They just have a better rep for quality (and it is deserved).

whoever said food is better in Europe.. huh? you're out of your mind. food there is extremely overpriced for small portions. not to mention that it's bland and flavorless compared to our cuisine because culturally Europeans aren't big fans of seasonings/spices.

SON! Have you ever been to France, Spain or Italy? You must be trolling with this statement.

I've heard from multiple sources that Spanish food is downright poor, especially compared to Italian food which I've heard nothing but good things about. smiley: ohwell

Part of it may have to do with you not being very cultured or willing to expand your horizons.  Are you just referring to luxury items or what?  Life is about more than materialistic goods and this fascination with everything European may have as much to do with the culture as well, something that the US generally lacks.  We don't have the history that Europe does in general and just as much so when it comes to brands like Gucci or LV or even luxury cars like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, etc.

Another aspect may be that people place a value on items that are not as readily accessible and therefore see imported goods as being "better".  Champion sweatshirts aren't exactly exclusive, though I agree that the quality is superb and their versatility, from casual to business to formal, is second to none.

No time for the old in-out, love.
I've just come to read the meter.

Wow you people have issues

American cars versus European cars is a toss up between brand loyalty. Though lately Ford and other American cars have been winning the races and sales. Hell alot of European brands aren't even European owned.

Food. Toss up cause a good chef is a good chef anywhere. Our food is more diverse because we are a more diverse area.

Women: Sadly the obesity rate in this country means we lose.

Fashion: Toss up on what you think is fashionable.

Alot of what you think is better is completely subjective

I have some fascination with other first world countries that ARENT built on mannerisms that are typically "american"

It adds perspective to how others have tackled concepts of "society"

"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."
--Herman Goering at the Nuremberg Trials

Yep sorry wasn't very helpful. 

For the last decade Spain has been the world's leader in food. Ask any top chef in the world, even American, who the biggest innovator in food has been and they'll all say Ferran Adria (of El Bulli). El Bulli was voted best restaurant in the world until it closed its doors last year. Just look at the list of top restaurants in the world; El Celler De Can RocaMugaritzArzak. There are restaurants in America doing exciting things; Alinea, Eleven Madison Park etc. Plus I love David Chang, and you can't have anything but utmost respect for Thomas Keller but Europe is still the superpower in food. France, Denmark and Spain are still far superior in the food stakes to the USA.
