Name pre-SF regrettable purchases. - Page 8

post #106 of 236
Generally, I was fairly informed about quality clothing and very rarely have made "mistakes". Pre SF, I preferred Versace Classic suits mainly because they fit me exceptionally well and the garment is Zegna, albeit not the best quality for the price. Since the forum though I am more confident in trying other brands that I new nothing or very little of (i.e. Pal Zileri, Corneliani, etc). For the record, I had been visiting the forum for a while before I finally joined... Love it.

No Regrets.

Paying Retail led me here.
It was worth the price.

I have wasted far more money on greedy materialistic girlfriends.
Now THAT I do regret...and the years of my life lost.

Hell, I still get my hair cut that way -- not remotely stylish, but good for hat-wearing.

As for regrettable purchases, wool-poly blend slacks and ill-fitting RTW jackets head the list numerically. Price-wise the absolute worst was a pair of black AE Byrons purchased at full retail in Canada ...

I used to wear a 42R - and thought it looked good on me - looking at pictures, I look like I was wearing my dad's old suits

Pre SF regrettable purchases:


Levi's Premium bootcut bleach stained nightmares
Nike Dunk SB Mids (non quickstrike)
True Religion Jeans
Paper, Denim and Cloth Jeans
Two GRAIL T shirts
One Morphine Generation T shirt
3 Drifter T shirts
Tacky Christian Lacroix ties

Pre SF purchases that are still awesome:

Buttery suede belted coat by Penguin - No logo and the leather compares to any super expensive designer shit I've felt.
Really surprsingly - light washed Diesels. My favorite things in the world when I was 16. Now that I've rediscovered them they live on as jorts. The denim and wash is really nice.

Spent $1,500 on an Etro suit (made by Boglioli) for my wedding. Half-canvassed too. Etro store also made me pay for alterations (!).

Never paid anywhere close to that since then, and bought far better suits.

I once bought a matching tie, cuff link and pocket square set. I think I may have worn it once.....
I also bought 2 kenneth cole belts, which fell apart after about 20 wearings.

I had a pair of black Aldo, square-toed zipper-sided Chelsea-like boots. This was in mid-college probably 5 years ago or so. Thankfully the sole basically snapped fairly quickly. Strangely, I replaced them with a pair of black Bacharach chukka boots that I still wear occasionally. While I'd prefer the toe be a bit more rounded (it's rounded, but not still a little blunt), they are some of the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned and do well with jeans or in particularly wet weather. It's a store that I'd never even consider going into now, but in some ways I got more out of the $40 I paid for them than I've gotten out of just about any other purchase.

My absolute wor$t mi$take was getting a pair of custom-made Gucci bit loafers in, get this, turquoise snakeskin, with a highish heel. Very mid-'90s. I still have them in storage. Maybe I'll dig them out and photograph them.
