    "Marc", or whoever you are, you are banned, again. Your IP is banned, so you may not be able to read this. Please stop signing up new accounts or I will contact your ISP and have your service terminated.

    Additionally, in Washington state, where this board is based for business purposes, it is a misdemeanor to use computer resources without consent, under our anti spam laws. I am perfectly willing to file the paperwork and get the $500 per instance from you, if you insist on continuing this juvenile behavior. And there are a few lawyers on the board who might be interested in taking the case on contingency, since you have already posted at least 7 separate unsolicited posts consuming my (and their) bandwidth, for a total of $3500 so far by our laws.

    It would be wise for you to simply stop and go away. Thanks.

    I'm building up my wardrobe, and I'm making, every year:

    2 suits (€700 x 2)
    4 shirts (€100 x 4)
    2 shoes (€700 x 2)
    2 ties (€90 x 2)
    1 hat (€100)
    socks x 100€
    underwear x 100€
    accessories x 500€ (braces, belts, ...)

    That is: 4000-5000.

    Be careful it is very very addictive especially if you go bespoke...

    Haven't answered the poll..................I like some discretion.........
    But it's always too much for certain people around me and not enough for me......
    It also greatly depends on the income which can swing pretty much...

    I would say I spend around 5,000 maybe a bit more. I can't say for sure, there are some years I spend more then others weither or not I have gotten more suits or whatever.

    *BUMP*

    I'm just wondering what the "style gods" on here spend per year. I know its liable to make me cry but I need to figure out whether I'm ever going to be able to afford that kind of wardrobe.

    Don't make me really think of the answer to this question. I avoid thinking about things like this.

    wow, epic bump.


    I'm probably around $3-5K or so. I don't really buy too many suits or shoes so it's mostly casual stuff and the occasional shirt at this point.

    You were actually who I had in mind. I searched "tom ford" on ebay.

    Those ties are more expensive than my "nicest" suit.

    It is funny mainly because I never really thought of that until I came across this thread. What I do know is that I never want to spend too much on trendy items.

    I've made this mistake with Prada and BBBF when I was into those goods. I feel better about the items I buy now, although the amount I spend could be reduced.

    I've spent way more in the past year (joined SF, finished grad school, started a new job) than I hope to settle into as my spending patterns long term...but I think I've gotten a lot of value.

    I basically want to have a classic wardrobe built up by 30-35 and not buy stuff unless something is damaged or I happen to see the perfect tie, ps, sc, etc.

    Right now I literally have one rack, two dressers, and a wardrobe full of clothes that DON'T fit or that i WON'T wear. I need to stop spending time/money on stupid shit on ebay, and hang on to that money until I can afford good quality but not Tom Ford levels of crazy bespoke.

    I keep an excel file of what I spend a year. It's actually quite appalling although I end up returning / selling a lot of stuff. Main issue is that I have nowhere to try on / look at / feel most of the stuff I'm buying most of the year in Indiana. When I'm in California I would rarely buy stuff as you can try stuff on first. But with Mr. Porter / Park & Bond I went crazy this winter.

    Reevolving keeps my financial records so that I don't have to think about it.
