The last coat I bought was the equivalent of 200+ euros. It has lasted me over a decade, so I consider it money well spent.
My last pair of shoes... Well; probably the same.
Generally, I don't spend much money on clothes. Of course I want to look pretty and such, but doing so is expensive, and requires a very large wardrobe (making it more expensive) and the clothes generally don't last (making it that much more expensive again).
I've got some pretties, but most of my clothes are simple and plain. And not very expensive.
I find that a good jacket is impossible to find under €100. But other than that I would never spend that kind of money on a "regular" piece of clothing.
Damn, I thought I spent too much money on cloths.
Yeah, and when we get him in a clothes catalog, we'll give him a fucking huge chainsaw (atleast 25" bar) and a 22 ounce mug of beer. And a tie.
Spent 300$ on a sweet jacket. Jeans/shoes/shirts are usually in the 20-80$ range, but I do own a few shirts that were about 120$ each
(Sometimes it can be hard to find shoes though, I usually buy them on sale if I'm lucky to find some in my size. I use size 49 EU, 14 UK, 15 US shoes)
No, are you fucking crazy?
Don't really want to hang around the kind of people that think this kind of ridiculous expenditure is necessary in order to be socially acceptable, either.
Unless you're talking about a suit or whatever. Casual wear, no. Formal wear, it is unavoidable.

Spent $65 for a pair of safety shoes that I had to have for a renovation project I was involved with (I wear them everyday now), normally I would pay about $20-30 for a pair of shoes (sister works at a shoe store). The jeans I wear I got on sale for $24, I won't pay more than $15 for a t-shirt.

Well, 20 years ago the jeans and shoes I'd buy were $50, so I'd expect they'd be close to that with inflation now.
It is hard to buy a quality jacket for 0 and below unless you go to a thrift store for less than that.
I rarely spend money on clothes, and if it is something I think will last a long time, I'd be hesitant, but willing (such as quality winter jacket).
My clothes usually last me 5-10 years easily though, including shoes, so, effectively, it is pennies a day, even if I did spend that much.
When you get into nice women's clothes, ones with actual style, not a box store piece, it easily gets over $100. My wife was looking at stuff the last few days, hard to find anything under that. Get into victorian dresses and such, gets very costly.

Of course not, that's just crazy. Never more than 15 bucks for a single piece of clothes.
