Don't skimp on decent gear. Even if you use it sparingly, it's not going to go to waste. Stuff for backpacking is functional - as in - if you just get whatever is on sale, there is a decent chance you could be miserable the entire time. Fashion, on the other hand - yeah, a shirt for Walmart is going to looking worse than... most things, but it will serve exactly the same as the most expensive shirt on the market.
