People pay that much?
Any piece of clothing over $20 bucks is a waste. I think only expensive thing I've ever bought was a jacket tho that I never even wear...
Shoes, jacket, suit... Things like that may well go over a 100€, but I compensate with 9,95 shirts, 4,95 socks and -underwear.
Yes, a good jacket.
I bought a leather jacket during the holidays last year that cost well over 100 Euro's. But an expenssive leather jacket will last you a lifetime, and that's why I was recommended to get one. My father had one that lasted for 25 years.
Shoe's are worth spending money on as well. It's very important to have proper shoe's, both for your feet and for your back, so spending 100 on a pair every 4-5 years or so is normal.

I guess it must be really expensive living in Sweden hearing what you all say? Here in Sweden me and my friends weekly are buying single T-shirts for 400 dollars, from hearing this i came to think its really expensive here?
If its worth it to you, then anything is worth what ever price tag it is. I've purchased clothing before in the $100 price range. Not often, but once in awhile if the pants/shirt is really, really nice. I've even bought $40 boxers before lol.

Sometimes yes. Jackets (especially winter or leather). Good shoes or boots. And of course business suits.
For for a shirt? Pants? Sweater? Nah.
I think the only thing i spend less then $100 on is casual shirts, underwear and socks. A nice silk shirt, jacket, pants will set me back $1000 easily. I work in IT however i have a lot of business meetings so appearance is important.
For reference i'm from NZ, $1 NZD is about $.83 USD or $.53 pounds
In Denmark a good pair of jeans Diesel, GStar, Levys etc easily cost 150euro, so yeah. I also have several jackets for suits that cost more than 100euro easy.
8 year olds Dude.
Brand name means nothing on a pair of jeans. A $20 pair of jeans from Wal-Mart is no different from a $65 pair in a department store.
i'm not rly sure what to say here, but the last time i bought a winter jacket, i payed about 500$, and the reason i bought it is because i never seem to find any jackets that i like without having to pay double that amount. so 100$ sounds like what a t-shirt usually cost... but, this ofc depends on wich country you live in. and i live in Norway, probably one of the most expensive countries :S
It all depends on whether you value dressing to impress or not. For some people, a $100 suit is impressive to them, for others, a $1000 suit is impressive. I will absolutely spend over $100 on a single item of clothing if I feel it's justified or I just really like it. I regularly pay in excess of this on good shirts, pants, jeans and footwear. That doesn't mean that I won't buy a $20 t-shirt, or a cheap deal for say 3 pairs of socks at $5. It all has a time and place, your budget and desire is all that can be used as a limiting factor for how much you spend.
Back when I was in college and working part time, I'd save up to afford expensive going out shirts and such, but now, I simply don't worry about it as much. I budget and compare prices to quality.
The prices that people are saying are normal makes me value prices in the US quite a bit. You'd have to really go out of your way to even find a $500 jacket here.
read a few more posts and saw this swedish guy buying t-shirts for 400$ and i think maybe he ment 400SEK wich would be around 80$ cause if he really ment 400$ that would mean around 2000SEK wich i think he will realize is way more than he buy t-shirts for :P
norwegian and swedish prices are somewhat the same, probably a bit cheaper in sweden, wich is why i usually take a roadtrip over there to buy beer :P but normal t-shirt prices would be around 40-120$ depending on quality
might be an idea to mention that the general annual income for a norwegian amploye would be around 400k NOK wich is about 70k$
and please look away from my spelling :P
