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.
