Just wondering what you guys have that, say, like, you bought yesterday but yet have worn, like, a kabillion times more than stuff, say, you've had for, like, five years.

Just wondering.

Plain white button-up, black and gray v-neck sweaters. Best $60 I ever spent.

Jeans. I wear my Acne's literally every day, definitely paid for themselves in a short period of time.

1. Rolex Deap Sea (wore it everyday for two months which is definitely the longest i've ever worn a watch nonstop...since have sold it for a profit. I loved it but it was WAY too thick)
2. Desert Boots (both leather and suede)
3. APC new standards/rescues (fit according to what I'm doing/where I'm at)
4. Oxxford sport coat (I had two made and I had to wear one every night for two months until I was initiated...no not a frat)
5. APC's woven leather belt
6. Custom wool "university coat" (wear it a lot at night when it gets cooler)

Jeans, for sure. My winter coat (I live in a cold place, so this is my favorite purchase of the year, and I never skimp. This year it was the Maine field jacket in black wool (I've looked at it closely - it is black, not midnight.) My favorite belt of the moment. Sneakers (I end up wearing about 3 pairs until they die, then I move on.)

my AA t's. in the summer i had a limited budget and my uniform every day was basically AA 2001 t's and cargo shorts. for about $8 a piece, they're still in great shape after about 30-40 wears. pretty much the same as the day i got them. still going strong. amazing value on those. the smalls fit me perfectly after a tiny bit of shrinking.

uh...what else hm...my APC new standards. i've only had them since july and i've only worn them about 20 wears so far but i'm sticking with them until atleast january, so i'm definitely going to get my moneys worth there.

my khaki 511's... if i ever get a bit more cash I am buying 2-3 more pairs for work.

the fit is great, and they are a decent all/year pant.

S2A waxed black trench
Can't bring myself to use any of my other outerwear right now (including a Margiela trench!)

Probably Margiela boots. Which I wear too often. They're just too comfortable.

For myself, I'd say my Desert Boots and Desert Treks. I'm wearing the crap out of them these days now that the cooler whether has set in, and they go with everything.

Once I started wearing my AE Leeds in black shell, I started wearing them almost once a week. They're really versatile.
