I was in the mecca of men's clothing a few weeks ago (Louis, Boston)and wondered, who is out there buying this stuff ? What guy thinks, "Hmm, I need a new cashmere sportscoat" and goes out to a high end store and spends $3200 on one ? or wants a suit and plops down $12k for a bespoke ? they must be out there, Who goes into Gucci and buys the $475 stocking hat for the winter ? If you were to try to acquire a completely high end wardrobe it would run in the 10's or even 100's of thousands. I feel I have a nice wardrobe, mostly bought on Ebay and on sale items. Lots of RLPL and cashmere, and reg. Polo.No need for suits in my line of work, but if I did I would be in trouble, my tastes run toward Kiton, Belvest and Attolini. What is the most you have ever spent on one item ? in one outing ?
