Why self doesn't own nice things:

Dry clean only? I laugh at your warning labels!

If it doesn't survive the washing machine, it's not worth owning.

Re: More power to you.
It's not so much that it does anything special. In fact, I'd have never guessed that half of it had such special washing requirements. But the flip side of your argument is that I'd hate to deprive myself of a piece of clothing that I thought looked particularly good solely because of the washing requirements involved. Of course price sometimes factors in too, and then it gets a bit more muddled.

How did this turn into a lengthy discussion?
There's obviously a trade-off involved.

For me, the clothes would have to provide a level of warmth and comfort not otherwise available. For others, the effect on how you're percieved is enough. I'd rather be percieved as someone for whom such standards don't apply - the few business contacts who have judged my professionalism based on what I was wearing, I'd rather not work for.

And, like I said, sometimes things do survive the washing machine. Call it natural selection...
