What SF approved item is your vote for the biggest waste of money ?

post #1 of 225
Thread Starter 
To me, some clothing items are totally worth spending a lot of money on. They are unique, stylish, fit perfectly, or are just bulletproof. I have GLADLY spent a lot of money of things such as: Grenadine ties, Shatung ties, slim fit pants, linen jackets, slim fit shirts, belts with stylish patterns, whiskey shell wingtips, pebble grain wingtip boots, etc.

On the other hand, some things just don't seem like they are worth spending big bucks on. I'll start: Black belts. They all look the same to me. Do I need one to last 10 years? Not really. I can just buy a new one every few years, if need be. I just don't feel like I'm getting much for my money, so I personally would never spend $100 on a black belt. (Plain black shoes come in a close second)

I'd rather direct my funds elsewhere,and get more "impact" for the buck.
In your opinion and experience, what items are simply not worth paying extra for ?

Slim fit pants/shirts? You mean, you prefer your clothing to look ill fitting on you?


edit: Just want to add I agree with the black belt thing.

You might think black shoes are worth spending $500 on.
Others may disagree.
To each their own.

My Tom Ford butt plug. An impulse purchase that I now regret.

Is this the opening salvo in your bid to be the president of SBFC?

If it is unused and a popular size, you can recoup most of your initial investment.

I believe the Hermes H belt is SF approved.

I also believe it is a big waste of money.

But to the owners of the belt, you are in great luck. As a former owner, I was sure glad a whole heap of people on eBay bidded against each other giving me 80% what I paid for it. Best thing about it - it was well used and over 4 years old.

$1000 slick leather soled shoes. Absolutely no benefit for me at all in having these in Xilinhot. Also no need for a suit and tie, as I don't work in banking and finance, real-estate or for the government.

Oh yeh, some other stuff that's not worth me spending good money on, Grenadine ties, Shatung ties, slim fit pants, linen jackets, slim fit shirts, belts with stylish patterns, whiskey shell wingtips, pebble grain wingtip boots, etc. Pretty sure I can't even get many of these things anyway.
