Native Americans - and in many ways, probably all soldiers from pre-guerrilla times - went to battle in grand costumes not because they wanted to show off for their enemies, but because they wanted to show off for god. If they died that fateful day, at least they'd be dressed to meet their maker.
One could use a similar philosophy to justify spending $500 for house slippers. Dress up for yourself, dress up for God. You never know when accidents are going to happen.
