    Fragrances $450 - Creed is addictive

    I had no idea one could even buy fragrances that cost $450.

    What is this $400 tee-shirt?

    Versace T I bought back in the day when I knew nothing about real clothes.....

    Sickens me to think that I could have a nice pair of AE's for less than I paid for a t shirt that I now use to sleep in

    live and learn

    Creed has a so-called Private Collection, which is a small line comprised of various custom scents made for past clients such as Marlene Dietrich and Cary Grant. That line is especially expensive. Then one also has the now rather-gauche Clive Christian which touts itself as the world's most expensive perfume, with a diamond tipped flacon to match.

    for those of you willing to spend around $150 for a shirt....are you buying shirts that retail for that price-- or are you paying $150 for a $300+ shirt from Ian Daniels, honest*goods, and www.virtualclotheshorse.com ?

    Just curious, as I have been willing to spend more than my proposed budget IF I am getting far more "buying power" by purchasing items at an excellent discount. As I don't have time to shop the actual store locations for sales, etc. online selles (like those mentioned above) are really great resources for me.

    cases in point-- most recent purchases:

    + 3 button solid grey Brioni suit, new with tags (still has pricetag of $3900 attached), bought for $999

    + John Lobb shoes (by the way, check out the pix of this shoe on the www.johnlobb.com site, under prestige line --> Sutton) for around $750
    yeah, i know this is a lot of dough to drop on dress shoes, but keep in mind this is a current model that retails for about $1200
