You're touching on an important point though which is that, in real life and in-game, self expression in itself isn't the point. The point is to communicate status. People don't buy Gucci because Gucci is the one brand that perfectly captures the wearer's innate aesthetic ideal, they buy Gucci because it's high status.

That's part of it, but not the entirety. The irony is that people will buy brands and clothes that someone else made, and use them as personal expression. Few people are out there creating custom clothing to express themselves.

If a game let you create your own outfit and accessories that would be one thing. But the likelihood of that is extremely low.
