    I would say about HKD40000 each year. I admit it is quiet a bit for a student.

    I think buying habit had been better this year, I have a good start.

    Nowadays I only buy things when I don't have it, or my previous stuff are unworkable or torn wide open

    I probably spend $5K a year, but when i have more disposable income it will probably stay the same or go down slightly. I'm at a wardrobe building point in my career, so it's expensive. Then the major expenses (shoes, suits, outwear), will only come once every few years.

    $5-10K per annum.
    Will be $10-20K as soon as I get the balls to replace all AE with Vass/EG/JL and all BB with Bespoke.

    Generally works out for me this way for me too though I'd hate to quantify the time component.

    I was curious and I calculated how much exactly I have spent since I joined SF: 6,530 € (or 8,526.77 US$). That is since May 2011. Not that much compared to other bros here, and I have to say in my defense that I built my wardrobe from 0 and now I pretty much have all the basics. Still, I hope my wife won't find out or I'll sleep on the couch...

    I'm a sucker for suits! I wear them once or twice then I'll try something new again. Not really a practical thing to do but I do it anyway.

    i dont know exactly as it kinda goes in phases month to month, but my best guess on an average year would be 5K on the low end and 7K on the high end. i need to peel back in a serious way or start making a lot more dough.

    I don't buy a lot, or often. I just buy expensive.

    His entire wardrobe consists of two pairs of bespoke dodo leather shoes, two pocket squares made of the Shroud of Turin and Bayeaux tapestry, respectively, and a knit tie made of mammoth wool.
