    I've found that when I buy cheaply made clothing, I tend to wear it out MUCH quicker than a quality piece. For example, Old Navy Jeans get worn & rip so fast compared to say Monarchy Jeans.
    Exactly. I'm in the clothing business and this is very very true. We sell items that are average to higher end pricing and the apparel lasts much longer and wears better then some of these "cheaper" big box department stores.

    Me? I wear cheap t-shirts (5 bucks each on sale at SEARS) and whatever jeans I can get in my size for under 20 bucks as long as their not tight. I don't skimp on shoes though, because cheap shoes suck.

    I don't look bad, I just don't dress to impress 90% of the time. But when I do dress to impress, I do.

    I also don't spend a lot on watches. While I do appreciate them, I like cars much better.

    Short answer no. I appreciate quality, comfort, and exclusivity, so that's the more mid to higher end stuff. However, I believe in wearing the proper uniform for the game I'm playing. If I'm over a friends house watching the game, then some worn in jeans and white T will work. When I'm networking in a business setting where I want to make my presence felt, then the custom made attire is in play. And when I'm out scouting talent (ladies).... oh boy!

    So the social/business settings/personal taste I have leads to more expensive stuff. But do what works for you

    I'm a college student and I wear a tie most days - if i don't have a tie on, I likely have a cuff-linked shirt and/or a tailored jacket. I don't come from money, and as an in debt college student, I don't have much of it, but when you look the part, people take you seriously. Dress for success, dress to impress, whatever cliche works - I've had great success networking at the tender age of 21 because people know I'm serious. Plus, not all nice clothes need to be expensive - just find a good tailor.

    Honestly over the years my choice of buying expensive jeans and tops, went down. Just because the washer machine ruins my stuff. And I'm to lazy to get it dry cleaned. So if you check my closet, you'll see a variety of clothes from expensive to average. I dont mind buying clothes from Kohls and target if I'm just bumming around, but if im gonna be in public, I gotta stay fashionable.

    Youre right, there is nothing better than finding a shirt for $5-10 that you can wear ALL the time... as well as a good pair of jeans that fit right and can handle some abuse for less than $40... but hard to find... most of the time youll get a couple good wears out of a T before it starts to fade and no longer be comfortable....

    BUT THE BEST is when you get that shirt that isnt really comfortable at first, but you wear and wash it a few times, then one day, you pull it out of the wash and you havent felt anything softer... THAT my friends, is a day to be proud of!

    hahahaha
    Stay RICH money!

    I believe there is a diminishing return on clothing after a certain price point, just like cars. I am a 36 y.o. married guy with 2 kids and dress like one. I like decent clothes and dress cleanly with clothes that fit my personality. I am not into skulls or crazy designs. I prefer polo type shirts, decent jeans and nice accessories. I have to find a balance when I am at work as I want to look decent but climbing up the side of ships can be dirty. When I walk onto the bridge of a ship worth half a billion plus to take over I need to be taken seriously. When I meet the captain for the first time, he knows the shipping company is paying big bucks to have me there and he doesn't want a bum piloting his ship. On the same token I don't want to seem "too official" by wearing a suit or something, I want the captain to feel comfortable. Most of the captains are foreign and are clean cut. All of the talk about tatooed, drunk sailors. Those days are over.
