I wear suits daily. However, the quality bug hasn't bitten me yet, because I am making do with the basics right now, can get away with it, and can't get the really good stuff where I live. The best I could do would be an Armani for $1000, which might be alright, but this forum leads me to believe I'd be overpaying. So I continue to wear H&M and BR.

Nothing is set in stone, I'll change if it is something great. T's about $40, however I have some $60 Polos, $80, but I have a burberry one that I believe was $100 Shirts, $100 roughly, I find most of my favorite are around that price, but I have some for more, YSL ones that were $200-$300 I think Dress Shoes, used to be $300, changed recently though. Sneakers I don't like over $100, except for some I have that are $120-$150ish, but those are special. Jackets (casual and dressy) all over the place, my favorite jacket ever was $100, but I have other great jackets for much more, or much less. Hoodies, I've never gotten into expensive hoodies. I usually just go to H and M because I mostly layer them. Sweaters I'll spend up to $100 (non-cashmere), but I have a lot the I like (Ben Sherman) that were about $60-$70 I think. Jeans $250ish, but I often spend closer to $200. That's all folks

I wonder if some outerwear limits rise with the price of EG outerwear?

I'm probably in the low-mid range here. The only clothing I can think of that I spent more than $200 on is my 5EPxSF jeans. I own a pricier suit, but it was a gift.

I'm a pretty cheap guy and tend to stick to sales and such. Part of my problem is that I'm just too afraid of damagaing really expensive clothing. I don't want to pay 1000 for a suit and then rip it. So, off the top of my head type..........true max.....norm max* T-shirts.........30..........20 Button-ups...90..........60 Jeans............200........100 sneakers......100.........75 dress shoes..175........90 sweaters ......75..........40 jacket ...........250........100 wallet............50...........20 suits.... this is a tough one. I don't really get to wear my suits much at all so I feel pointless spending a lot. Maybe 500 with a norm max of 250. *Here i mean what i'd normally consider my limit when shopping. Sometime would have to blow me away to go higher...likely I haven't paid more than this ever. true max is like the most I could ever see myself paying at this point in time.

This is mindset too.

I'm with Whodini on this one too. No set limit, but this is my comfort zone where I'd buy it without thinking twice:

Tees: $20 (most i ever paid was $60)
Shirt: $100 (400)
Jeans: $200 (275)
Outerwear: $300 (1500)
Sweaters: $200 (300)
Sneakers: $100 (100)
Shoes/Boots: $300 (700)

I'm also with AHarris, 2009 will be a more frugal year, not for economic reasons but just that I have so much gear I really need to wear things more and not be a collector.

also agree with the statement about priorities....I'd drop $200 on a shirt/jean/whatever pretty easily but I agonized for months about buying a Barbeque grill for under $200

I'm really surprised at how low some people's outerwear/jacket max are, but it could be because I'm from a colder climate, or that I just love jackets.

Basic t-shirts: $10
Other t-shirts: $20
Shirts: $50 (Pretty much Jantzen)
Jeans: $80
Chinos: $50
Shoes: $150
Outerwear: $150

I'm pretty limited by my income, but this is what I would be comfortable spending if need be. I usually spend less than this on everything, but would be willing to pay more occasionally.
