Good point, but are they counted as Irvine residents on the Census?

And a lot of them might not even live in Irvine.

It depends on if the UCI student population is included in the income demographics.

I've done a ton of research on this. I've watched "Crazy Rich Asians" three time. Asians are really, really into brands.

You base on your comment on a really bad movie. It’s so bad, I don’t even want to watch it.

But Newport Beach is predominantly white and there's lots of conspicuous consumption there. Rowland Heights, Monterrey Park, and even Diamond Bar are largely Chinese but they look a lot more down to earth than Irvine. Not sure if brand names is a race based thing. Seems like it varies by city.

Irvine looks like a newer Diamond Bar to me? Don't really see anything upscale there same tract homes unless you go to the newport side (turtle ridge and shady canyon) Other than that plain areas with no real views or custom housing stock
