    This is largely true, and I can't help but feel that anyone who claims otherwise is trying to convince themselves more so than me. Of course my opnions are formed completely on anecdotal evidence. The best pair of jeans I've owned was an no name off brand, while the worst pair was a high priced name brand.

    So much about style and fashion is being able to say "I am wearing so and so stylist, or such and such brand" and has little to do with quality.
    Get a grip man! It's CHEESE!

    Not true at all. $10 Wranglers don't fit the same way other jeans fit. The material is different, rougher, stiffer and uncomfortable. Feels cheaply made. Same with Levi's etc. Some very expensive jeans like true religion for instance use shitty materials and charge an arm and a leg for the brand name. If money isn't an issue then you wear what you like. When money becomes an issue you wear what you can afford.

    What seems a waste to you may not seem so to me. Dressing in walmart clothes looking like a bum, now that´s a waste of money to me. I like my clothes to look good, fit well and be long lasting.

    At least where I come from there is a massive difference between say a pair of Levys that are sewn to fit and made from the best fabric as opposed to a pair of 20$ jeans with straight tube legs and an iffy quality fabric.

    See, my experience is the complete opposite. Again the expensive jeans I've had may have fit well, but damn they were of very poor quality. Didn't even last a year before they were falling apart. I've got a pair of wranglers (that cost more than $10, by the way) that are pushing 10 years old and look just as good as when I got them.

    Yes you can find some really shit quality jeans for super cheap, but you can find just as many shit quality jeans that are over $100.

    Yes and no.

    The jacket I'm wearing, is something I came across in the UK while visiting and bought it on the spot. That was about 150 quid.
    My shoes are from Nike and generally cost about 120 euro's.
    The rest, like jeans, no way I'm paying over 100 euro for that. Or shirts (altho I usually buy band shirts which are still 20-30 euro each).

    Never, I usually only buy things on sale (i'm not counting renting a Tux because can't get around that)

  11. #311
    I'm sitting at around €20-40 for shirts
    30-60 for blazers
    90-120 for shoes
    and around 80-160 for jeans.

    steel toe work boots for $140. 3 years and counting so far, good pair of boots

    I have never spent that much on a single clothing. I once bought a full suit with tie, jacket, trousers and the white shirt ( dunno what that is in english ). I know alot of people that spend alot to their clothes. I once bought a 5€ t-shirt and I saw same looking and same material t-shirt in the "quality" clothes magazine for 40€. I just buy cheap clothes that last a bit longer than week, like 3-6 months is good for me and then I buy some new ones. I usually spend about 100-150€/year for clothes. Mostly I spend little more for good underwear. It's not needed but I just want some luxury. Still I don't mean CK etc.

    years i bought a pair of shoes for 180 € ^^ never ever again

  15. #315
    Well those are 3 totally differing amounts of money <,<

    I used to buy clothes fairly cheaply when i lived in the UK, but since I moved to denmark my spend per item has ended up going up by roughly 30 - 50% (stuff be expensive here)

    The only plus side of this being, I am careful to buy good quality clothing / stuff I really want now I have to pay more! I would say I spend on average £40-50 an item here (350-500 DK)

    Depends on what it it....

    I'm not going to spend £100 on a T-shirt, but I'll spend £100+ on a suit...

    I'll spend more on functional stuff than purely cosmetic, for instance running gear and hiking gear so I am more comfortable, than I would on a shirt just to go out in.
    No game will ever kill wow. Though Blizard themselves are making a pretty damm good attempt lately.

    I have a 4 Avirex leather jackets ranging from $800-1200.
    Few North Faces etc.

    Some were gifts some I bought. Usually nice things cost money >.>
    Nice things sometimes cost money... some nice things just cost money simply because they are a brand.

    Yes, a decent suit costs more than that.

    I've had expensive jeans and I have found this to be true of some cheap jeans. Only ignorant people think they must spend x amount to get anything good.

    Damn, what brand? I have Justin pull-ons (soft toe) and I usually beat the crap out of them in a year or year and a half.
