l live in Australia so discounts in high end stores are not too common. However, sinse becoming a member of styleforum l have become aware of the deals to be had online (Ebay). l will try ebay etc some time soon. l have always paid retail for all my top threads in a high end store. l will pay between $350 to $1,500 for a shirt. l will pay a minimum of $400 for jeans, $600 for trousers, $600 for shoes (rock bottom price lo will pay). l will pay $3,500 at least for a suit. P.S: [thanks to this forum], l will only pay at least $1,100 for shoes now. (The average cost of my shoes prior to this forum was around $800). l pay through the nose because it is first served first dressed. l am a label snob when it comes to jeans. l buy jeans to price everyone out of the market. $1,000 Aust Gucci jeans are always welcome. l hate wearing common label jeans. P.S.S: l don't have the time to search for quality clothing so l opt for designer labels instead (hence the extra price).
If you mean US $, boy the dollar rate is really killing you guys out there. Dior Homme jeans cost about 270 pounds, that is almost $500, which seems crazy when you put the price into $. Things were never like that before, what you paid in pounds, you paid similar in $, obviously prices of european goods in the US are linked to the exchange rate.
