Bump and a price drop.

A question for fellow Trickers wearers. Subjectively, I'd say my Trickers soles wear faster than other brands (this is over a couple of pairs of Trickers, not just one). Can anyone else corroborate this?

Brioni trouser suit for the lady in your life - £69.99 BIN (plus free UK shipping).
I purchased a Chester Barrie 12oz worsted suit at a thrift store a decade ago, have worn it on average once a week since then, and only now has it got to the state that I really need to put it out of its misery. For most suits I tire of them / my tastes change / whatever before I wear them out. I agree with the above though, good maintenance and rotation will increase the lifespan.
Shoes are an easy fit unless you have really odd feet, so it's a matter of style. It should be fairly easy to pick up excellent quality shoes (i.e. Edward Green) at discount prices with a bit of patience. Suits, on the other hand, are quite tricky to get the fit and styling spot on, so I'd suggest the money is better spent there getting MTM / bespoke.
I previously owned some Burberry red trousers that my wife took an instant dislike to, so never realy got worn. I recently purchased a pair in deep red cotton by Loro Piana (double pleats, almost a chino-style fit) which are great, even my wife likes them. I've been wearing them with blue shirts and perhaps a camel-colored cashmere sweater if it's cold.
