OP - sorry, forgot to give you my thoughts on the above question too.
If you upgrade one part of an outfit, I don't think it necessarily follows that you need to upgrade the rest to ensure the cost ratios are the same. For example, let's assume you spend GBP800 on a nice suit and GBP350 on a pair of C&J shoes. If you were to buy a bespoke suit a few years later for GBP3000, whilst you could also buy more expensive shoes of better quality (EG, G&G etc) i think it would be perfectly acceptable and appropriate to continue wearing the original C&J's (as they would still be good quality shoes that would look more than fine with a good quality bespoke suit).
I appreciate the above items don't fall within your budget, but just wanted to use them to illustrate the general point.
