It really is a matter of careful and steady shopping, and shopping for lesser known brands or gems within a well known line. For example, I will be wearing a pair of classic, high grade, American vintage shoes tomorrow that I purchased in virtually unworn condition for right around $50. They are not Aldens, or Allen Edmonds or Florsheim, et al. They are relatively unknown to the masses, so they fly under the radar. A suit by a well known American designer that is very high quality and cost me $125.
All, from E-Bay.
The only "new" item I will be wearing (excluding underwear and socks) is my shirt, which was also purchased at discount (TJMaxx) for $29.99.
