A pair of good, well-made chinos, some raw Levi's 501 jeans,and some camp or blucher moccasins. 


It's either that, or a Barbour Bedale jacket and a sweater.

I did just receive an unexpected $500. I'm tempted by Carmina double-monks @ Epaulet, but I think I'll add a little more money & order custom shell cordovan saddle shoes from Alfred Sargent.

Practical answers to questions like these are no fun - saving it for later? come on. Maybe the question should be rephrased:


Every retailer in the world gives you 24 hours to spend up to $500 (in total) on clothes/shoes/accessories. Use it or lose it. Now what are you buying?

Pull a Charlie Sheen and hire a call girl?

$500 is either a fortune or a pittance, depending on taste and needs. YMMV, but most here aren't going to get a dream suit/ shoes for that. For younger guys, it might get you that first decent suit/shoes. For me, I'd proably fill a gap in the wadrone I've been putting off, brogues or vacation wear.

I would get fifty thousand pennies and give them all to Carl at CEGO!

Is this assuming we don't have any money? Is this assuming we spend any money we have? This question doesn't make sense. I'd hope most people wouldn't immediately just think they should spend any money they get.

Man of Lint is truly a classy gentleman. Hurrah for this!
