No, I don't think you do. Maybe in your part of the world, but here USD500 is good for 100% wool.

Why would you resurrect this stupid thread?

meh... that's a sh*tty quote.

I think it's ok. Anyone who chooses bling over shoes has a certain mindset.

Belt
my most expensive belt is a hermes belt for 800$usd (which is the cheapest hermes belt) but i have not paid more than 400usd for a belt since and probably not anymore in future (except maybe on alligator or croc leather belt, but as of now they are way too costly to me as the cheapest i ve seen in my place cost 1k USD )

Shoes
my most expensive shoe is a louis vuitton caracao in patent leather ,which costed me 1.3k USD .However i usually buy shoes cost around 700-900USD but on the exception of the LV one because it was blingy .. patent leather with LV logo everywhere.. and metal on the sole

Dress Shirt
my most expensive shirt costed me 800USD from giorgio armani it was so shiny n blingy because it was made of silk...previous i spend around for a shirt 500$usd , but economy has been bad so i spend roughly around 400$usd (but i rarely buy new shirts now)

Polo T-Shirt
my most expensive polo t-shirt is from gucci (with the gucci monogram) costed me 350$usd but yea i ve been cutting down my expenses so much i only spend around 200$usd on polo t nowadays.. but i am itching to buy new gucci polo-t but the price are abit steep starting at 350$usd ...

T-shirt
iwont pay more than 200$usd for a basic tshirts

Watch
i set my limit 5k usd for a watch... but i cant afford one yet so in the future i will save money to get a decent 5k usd watch




* btw yea notice how the pricing is slighly higher than most countries.. our countries has very high boutique markup
lol .....this guy needs to go to grammar school first .

How can you have 850 posts and have not come across HermesMan? The guy is a legend/cunt depending on your world view.

No disrespect to the OP, but threads like this are silly: 

 

There's no 'ready reckoner' price chart to work out what bits of clothing and accessories work well with each other.  One needs to invest the time to learn what is good and tasteful and coherent.

 

True it is that you get what you pay for, but this is a single-edged sword (if that's the right metaphor):  i.e. you could spend $10,000 on brands and still look like cr@p (a la HermesMan).

Seriously. How dare people impugn the wisdom of HermesMan? I'm but a humble sock, but I remember him fondly.
