    Default Cheap Clothes

    Who here wears cheap clothes simply because you don't care.

    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.

    I'm a watch whore... I love old collector chronograph watches... I don't skimp on clothes that bad, but do wear $40 jeans and mid-level designer t-shirts. I don't do the dress up thing much, just not my style really... a sport coat with a t-shirt or loose buttoned made to measure dress shirt is as far as I go most times.

    It is vital that we work to a few golden rules. Always work in a small team. Keep a very low profile. Only deal with people who come recommended. And it's like selling anything else: washing machines, hand made shoes, blowjobs. As long as you don't take the piss people will always come back for more. And that is not to say we don't have that special kind of magic that makes two kilos into three. But never be too greedy.

    Somehow I don't think you're going to find much camaraderie for SEARS t-shirts and sub-$20 denim on LUXURY 4 PLAY.

    Regardless of what you wear, I think it's important to take pride in the way you look. Depending on wear you live, if you want others to treat you with respect, you need to look good. But, that doesn't necessarily mean wearing designer everything and buying the most expensive apparel.

    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.

    There is general truth to what you say, there are some cheap brands that actually are reliable just have to find it and test it out.

    Otherwise, I prefer a good fit and I out of all the t-shirts I have only TWO (hugo boss & Altru) are made right....tryin' to find the same quality is hard even when the company(altru) who prints on the shirt start using a different tee! Like "American apparel to fruit of the loom"

    Or different types of cottons? *shrugs*

    Good points.

    For the most part I wear out my clothing regularly, but then I just buy more. My favorite T is a CK one, but unfortunately I haven't been able to find them for sale anymore. As for jeans, you're right too Crazy, but my levi's last ok. But the most F'ed up thing is when you have a real comfortable pair of jeans (old navy) that wear out way too damn fast.

    I know there is a difference between a 5 dollar shirt from Sears and a 40-80 dollar (real) designer shirt. However there are also "designer" shirts out there that are nothing but Crap from China with a fancy label and a high price tag trying to cash in.

    Have you guys ever bought something "designer" to only be really disappointed with it?

    5 dollar shirts 90% of the time?

    Might want to re-think that.
    A world where medical advances allow us to live forever is a terrifying thought...
