A black Cacharel suit in Buenos Aires a few years back. Shoulder pads you could land a plane on and extremely full trousers. Very nice sales people though
Funny thing is, they tried to convince me to buy a beautiful navy suit in a much trimmer cut, but I wouldn't listen...

I hate to admit it, but I once had a Jones New York charcoal pinstripe suit, 4 button.

Look like this one?





Oh ya, speaking of landing strips, in high school I wore a flat top hair cut

- My suit (x2) and shirt (x3) purchases from Men's Warehouse. Bad cotton-poly blend shirts and a poorly constructed black suit. This was pre-SF and I had barely hooked up a 56k modem to my 386DX. No internet specials.
- Ecco monkstraps (black and very ugly)
- Hugo Boss and Armani Collezioni stuff from the San Francisco Macy's. I purchased on sale, but this stuff was still too expensive for the prices paid and the money I should have saved for grad school.

EDIT: I actually bought some Kenneth Cole shoes in 1997. They were made in Italy, non-square toe, blake constructed, and held up admirably well throughout college given their price (MSRP: $145ish, paid $90ish).

Geoffrey Beene dress shirts... 'nuff said

A suit from sam's tailor. As punishment I wander the forum, posting in every "hey, I heard about this tailor from HK that made clothes for bill clinton. I know he's cheap but his suit on clinton looks great!" thread.

Yours are all nothing compared with mine.

I had a canary yellow, low gorge, low-buttoning, double-breasted, no-vent sport coat custom made for me.

Brown, square-toe, faux snakeskin shoes from GBX.

Jeans with pink velvet and rhinestones on lining the pockets and cuffs (though this was for valentine's day).

Foe me it would have to be ill fitted shirts, before I came here I didn't know I could get my older shirts tailored to fit me better in the waist.

Also:
Jos. A Bank notch-lapel tux. Still have it, and will wear it until something better comes along.
J&M square-toe patent leather loafers to go with the tux.
Other unfortunate but not-as-bad shoes by Cole Haan, etc.
Various ugly sweaters, some approaching Cosby-sweater awfulness.
Lots of baseball caps.

I seriously just lost it laughing. Those shoes are hysterical. Hey, at least you got your $ worth. I have to say my top 3 pre-SF regrettable purchases are:

1. Hugo Boss Suit
2. Gucci Horsebit Loafers (Terrbile Quality)
3. Cole Haan Shoes

Several Hugo Boss suits and Aboud sports jackets. Notwithstanding the quality, the Boss suits actually fit very well. The Aboud sports jackets are like tents compared to what I have bought post-SF.
