Which I do on occasion (a pair of boots and shoes I recently bought come to mind). That being said, it's clothing and I don't get all the talk about some sort of spiritual experience people have by buying some expensive piece of clothing that I could probably buy a blatant copy of at the GAP for a fraction of the cost (and 99% of people would never be the wiser). I get more satisfaction by buying my 'mall brand crap' and then doing other stuff with my money like going on vacation, not being in debt and saving some of it. They looks awesome, but Junya blazers and MMM sneaks aren't going to buy me a house. To each their own.
