    Hey guys,

    I figured this might be another interesting poll. To keep it annonymous (and to prevent bragging), you might not want to make a post stating your income level. The reason I think this would be an informative thread is that most of the discussion on this board is of fine clothing. I know many members are able to afford Brioni, Kiton, bespoke, etc, so I wanted to see what the income levels were like.

    I'll include an "under $25k" choice for students like myself, or those with part-time jobs. The choices aren't based on any formal system; I just choose some ranges that I thought would be decent to use.

    I know. With all the talk of Kiton suits, bespoke suits and shirts, $4,000 bespoke Lobb shoes that there would be a few people placing votes there.

    Seems that most of the people on here are students.Judging from the poll results.
    I have a add on question what will your first major purchase.
    Or even better lets say your first job you recieved a $20,000 bonus and you decided to spend it on clothes.What would you buy?

    Well I would most likely invest much of that $20,000, however I would leave maybe a few thousand for adding to my wardrobe. What I bought exactly would all depend on the conditions; an inventory would be taken to see what parts of my wardrobe I could add to. However, with that said, I tend to have absolutely no will power when it comes to clothes, and just purchase whatever I like. [​IMG] In all seriousness though, I would most likely head straight to New York and get some made to measure Borelli's. Also a Loro Piana turtleneck navy cashmere sweater...the possibilities are overwhelming. [​IMG]

    Honestly? I'd probably use most of it on clothes. Most likely all Dior too, or whatever label I'm really into at the time.

    I would invest 15k and keep the rest in the bank and spend it freely.

    Funny. And I now know who one of the $3M+ votes belongs to.

    I told one phone "consultant" that I had won the lottery and that the interest from my winnings put me at a cool Mil a year, and was waiting until my house was finished before moving out of the trailer. Another time, I told another consultant that I was in the 300K plus bracket, but was living in a $500 sublet to see how the other half lived. Yet another time, I told the poor girl that I was a homeless person who had just broken into the house and was robbing the place blind - so, maybe a thousand dollars today, but probably closer to 300 because the pawn guy was a greedy pig. I'm not sure what she made of that - probably that I was a smart aleck she'd just wasted 10 minutes on.

    Grad school was a great place to get distracted and make mischief.

    I think its interesting that nobody makes 1-3 million. What, is it not GOOD ENOUGH to make a million bucks a year anymore?

    And uh... I hope we were talking gross income, cause if not I should have been in the under 25k bracket.

    I received $26,000 from my grandfather's estate. I used half to pay off my graduate school student loans and the other half to backpack around the world for a year. The clothes were able to wait.
