Is it uncouth to ask, how much do people in this thread spend per year on clothing? I'm at ~$3K/year over the past few years and feel like I have nowhere near the wardrobe to make daily, super interesting fits like most on here. Granted that is between footwear, casual wear, athletic/athleisure, and CM so it doesn't go very far in each category.
Too much!

I might suggest taking a look at Simon Cromptons (of permanent style) capsule guides for some inspiration on versatile pieces. While Simon definitely doesn't encourage frugality, I think his writing on picking versatile pieces is pretty good. 2 jackets, 3 pairs of trousers, 3 shirts, 3 pairs of shoes and a modest collection of ties/pocket squares still give you a LOT of versatility - it's easy to be intimidated by the wardrobes of some of the people here (not to mention the fits, the combinations and the ability to wear them) but I think the way to get there is to build a solid base of versatile pieces and get really good at spotting the right combinations.

One day...
