post #28066 of 37392

Honestly, there were about 214 completely different things. Impossible to summarize. So, so random.

Mostly (though not entirely):

 

(1)  I asked people how much they would pay for a dress belt.  This was last night.

 

(2)  Someone responding by telling us what they would pay for every standard item of clothing.  (Guess who.)

 

(3)  Other people followed the lead of the person in (2), above, and among these was someone who claims to be willing to pay more than $1000 for a shirt.

 

(4)  People responded to (3) more or less as one would predict on SF.  And kept responding and replying (which is also what one would predict on SF.)

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

 

P.S.:  in stitches, how much would you pay for a dress belt?  :) 

 

Edit:  Upon reflection, perhaps it wasn't last night that I asked the belt question.  But it certainly seems like a long time ago ...

The bigger question is: what the fudge is happening with you that you leave the forum for 24 hours at a time?

I think its been 11 days since I posted, or thereabouts. Shameful, I know, but I have a lot going on right now. Working my way back tho.

Danke shein for the recap, A2!

To answer your question, I would pay up to $5,000.01USD for any article of clothing or accessory, if it fit my specifications.

Alternatively, Id probs pay 140 for a dress belt if I loved it and needed it. However, Ive never actually paid more than 40 or 50 bucks for a belt, and the one really awesome Farnese from NMWA I have was actually a gift. Go figger.

I am trying to figure out what possessed me to read the last 200 or so posts in this thread. I am still not sure. SF addiction is real...

I kept reading hoping that somehow we would out Semper as a 14 year old kid from Nebraska that was bored because all of his friends are on vacation for the week.  Didn't happen, so now I just want that hour back.

No sh*t, broseph.

I've gone down the SWD rabbit hole and it's awesome. So much interesting stuff as opposed to the oft-formulaic CBD wardrobe.

Did slightly question my sanity when I considered kopping a super drapey RO silk/vicose knit t. Maybe someday.

I think perception of how put together you are lies completely in the hands of the person doing the perceiving. Also depends heavily upon the context of your workplace.

 

I think, at least in the USA, you would get more judgey and envious glances for wearing Ferragomo bit loafers than you would get from wearing John Lobbs or EGs. I've also seen people visibly disappointed when they find out my brown neat tie from eBay is not from Hermes.

 

Most people I encounter--especially those who are interested in menswear--follow the GQ/Esquire creed as a standard of what it means to be dressed well. Curiously enough, the compliments on my clothes I garner are mostly from women who have style I admire, probably because they have a higher acumen in recognition of quality.

No, it just means you dress like a girl.

I like this question.

 

I pose the counter-query:

 

What $1000 belt for jeans do you have in mind?

You have 2000 posts and you don't know about this? Everyone knows about my crystal medusa belt (that I usually wear with my gators).
