Come on fellas. Â We here are all somewhat unbalanced...at least when it comes to clothes. Â I will say, notwithstanding the abuse that is guaranteed, that I've not spent less than 15K per year on clothes for...well, more years than I can remember. Â It's not how much you spend, but how much of your disposable income you spend. Â If you have a modest salary of say $50K, have two children, and have to foot the bill for their educations then, 15K per annum is not only foolish, it's criminal; however, if your disposable income is considerable then, 15K for clothing is nothing. Â It's all about perspective. Long ago I converted the basement of a house that I inherited from my grandmother into a large walk-in closet. Â Regrettably, much of what is now there was purchased prior to my sartorial enlightenment. Â Ernest, some time ago, gave me a hard time over my claim that I bought upward of 50 shirts per year. Â Hell, at an average cost of $150 per shirt, $7500 per year is nothing. Â Last year I backed off from buying most things...thought that I had reached saturation...but still spent $5000 on shoes. Â Please don't take the dollar signs as a vulgar attempt to impress. Â It's not about money, as such....far more important, it's how you spend the dollars that you have to spend. Gentlemen, it's all relative.
