It seems the brand-ban doesn’t really resolve the underlying issues, since one-upmanship takes place in a multitude of forms and some solutions (like uniforms) violate other things (like squashing our desire to be express our inner selves through external attire. — I worked in a white shirt culture.)

I agree, though, that it is a different issue.
