What is the most you would spend on..... - Page 2

post #16 of 28
You're all making me feel ostentatious! That said, I'm not much of an internet shopper, I like the certainty of trying stuff on. And I'd rather one perfect shirt than two I only half-like.

Dress shirts - About $200, for the perfect white shirt.
Dress pants - I typically buy suits.
Chinos/khakis - Not my style. But, perhaps $150 for linen summer pants.
Sportcoat/Blazer - Again, not my style. I spent perhaps $250 on a leather jacket on sale, I'd have gone higher though!
Suit - The cornerstone of my professional and evening wardrobes. $900 for Zegna, again, would probably go higher. My size is hard to get.
Dress shoes - Have spent $300ish, might go a little higher.
Casual shoes - I want some really nice chelsea boots, so whatever it takes.
Sneakers - $50ish for Converse, generally. I have some La Coq Sportif fencing shoes that ran $90 and are pretty sweet.
Jeans - Ideally, no more than $150.
T shirts - Used to spend too much in my streetwear phase. Now, $30?
Casual jacket - See above.
Hoodies - Never.
Socks - Can always be had on sale. $10.
Ties - $60 on a Gucci and $80 on a really sweet Leonard (with DUCKS on it!)
Cufflinks - About $100 on a silver/Mother of Pearl pair that go with everything and are virtually all I wear.
Boxers/underwear - $5 for grey-market CKs from a Chinese variety store.
Razor - Gillette Sensor.
Shaving cream - $20ish for a half-year supply.
Watches - Don't wear one at present. Ideally less than a grand.
Fragrances - $100ish. I like nice scents.
Facial cleansery type things - $20ish.
Haircut - $50ish.
Gym/fitness membership - I settle for walking, and I have a home weights machine and exercise bike.

Well there we go. Any marketeers out there can use this very small sample to better target us for the latest tie-lock type widget...

Sickens me to think that I could have a nice pair of AE's for less than I paid for a t shirt that I now use to sleep in

Creed has a so-called Private Collection, which is a small line comprised of various custom scents made for past clients such as Marlene Dietrich and Cary Grant. That line is especially expensive. Then one also has the now rather-gauche Clive Christian which touts itself as the world's most expensive perfume, with a diamond tipped flacon to match.

for those of you willing to spend around $150 for a shirt....are you buying shirts that retail for that price-- or are you paying $150 for a $300+ shirt from Ian Daniels, honest*goods, and ?

Just curious, as I have been willing to spend more than my proposed budget IF I am getting far more "buying power" by purchasing items at an excellent discount. As I don't have time to shop the actual store locations for sales, etc. online selles (like those mentioned above) are really great resources for me.

cases in point-- most recent purchases:

+ 3 button solid grey Brioni suit, new with tags (still has pricetag of $3900 attached), bought for $999

+ John Lobb shoes (by the way, check out the pix of this shoe on the site, under prestige line --> Sutton) for around $750
yeah, i know this is a lot of dough to drop on dress shoes, but keep in mind this is a current model that retails for about $1200
