This study addresses the issue of conspicuous consumption among the British and Indian consumers, focusing on the psychological and brand antecedents, using the context of alcoholic beverages while employing a cross-sectional, survey-based methodology. The findings suggest that in both countries psychological and brand antecedents are of crucial importance among consumers in influencing their conspicuous consumption. However, the variables differ in their importance. The findings provide marketers an opportunity to engage with consumers by coupling the right mix of standardization and customization. The study is first of its kind explicitly investigating the conspicuous consumption in a cross-national context.
