    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I've never checked my annual spending reports until I saw this thread..

    For clothes, I'm guessing around $7k +/- few grand of my own money. I sometimes get gift cards from amex ($500 at wilkes bashford, domenico vacca, mr porter, harry winston, ferragamo etc).. so that's quite nice.

    Travel on the other hand....

    I've found this to be true, too, with shirts, suits, and jackets. And I look better in my clothes. :satisfied:

    this thread was started almost 10 years ago. even if there was one it would have been lost in the turnover to the new system.

    All of my older dress shirts and most of my older suits have been donated. I couldn't wear them any longer given how bad they looked.

    Never thought about it really. But not enough to be happy.

    Not a lot. Maybe in a year give or take $3000. I don't own a whole lot of suits unlike some gents who wear custom made suits year round, I wear mostly business casuals a couple of days and alternate with suits only if necessary, like important meeting with clients.
