Really curious what everyone here would get if given a free $500 and it had to be spent on wardrobe (clothing, shoes, accessories) ?

I'd spend 100 at a tailors getting a Brooks Brothers GF suit i got at a thrift store this summer fitted and the spend the rest on a pair of Double monk straps.

I would use the money to fulfill a need only and not a desire. If I had no immediate need, I would put it in the bank until a need presented itself, however long that may take. When a need finally arrived, I would make my purchase and again thank the person who had given me the gift.

^^^^ As above, it goes in the bank, and if need arises, would use that money towards a necessary item.

If the money came with a constraint it had to be spent the day you receive it, I probably would seek out an item I feel would do best on eBay. The money from that would be used as and when seen necessary and sufficient.

Well said.

Keep the money because that is probably not going to be enough to get what I want, use it as a surplus when there is a need for stuff.

Bespoke pants, probably flannel given the current season.
