We all love nice clothes & accessories here, and doubtless spend more than the average bear on them. However, I can't be the only one with deep-seated irrational prejudices against paying top whack for certain classes of item. I don't mean holding out for sales or trawling B&S/eBay for your favourite brands going cheap; I mean items that, regardless of brand or quality, you simply refuse to pay more for and still wouldn't want to even if money was theoretically not an issue. I figured it might be fun to compare our value quirks and also to share cheap - but better than average quality - sources for these kinds of item.
(If you like, feel free to also nominate items that you easily loose all semblance of price restraint over and will happily splurge!)
For me, I'm miserly about:
Silk knit ties: KJ Beckett - just ordered a couple from them, so waiting to receive them, but they certainly appear to be the right price & quality.
Socks: Falke Family - I prefer cotton socks to wool, and Falke's Family range has durable, washable, relatively fade-resistant socks at a low price.
Underwear: Marks & Spencers - it's a cliche to only shop for underwear at M&S, I know, but true for me anyway.
Leather belts: Equus - can't see a reason to pay more for any other belt, considering them quality & customisation of Equus.
While browsing the KJ Beckett site, I also spotted some colourful woven belts branded Tyler & Tyler. Woven belts are certainly another item I dislike paying lots for, so I might try one of those in future too.
