    About a year ago I bought 2 pair of Cole Haan's on the same day for $200/each. I'm actually quite pleased with the styling, but I now realize that I overpaid. Consequently, I am wearing the hell out of them in an effort to get my money's worth. When they wear out, I'll upgrade.

    Well, I should start at the beginning.

    When I was 13 (and Miami Vice was rokken) I bought this getup:

    White, white pants
    No socks
    White braided imitation leather shoes
    White suspenders with gold colored clips
    Bright, bright yellow button up shirt

    Ouch.

    Problem is the girls at school loved it. That sent me careening for years after but I have since found sartorial salvation and all is right with the world again.

    Black Michael Kors suit
    Navy pinstripe Kenneth Cole suit

    Both ill-fitting, especially the pants, even after spending so much getting them altered, so I probably spent $400 on each suit.

    I still wear them every now and then...[​IMG]

    What is wrong with Prada shoes? I recently bought a pair of their Chelsea boots on sale and they have performed great. Shed some light please? Thanks!

    I bought some Pliner shoes that i don't like so much.
    Camper shoes

    Claiborne. I keep 'em for sentimental reasons.

    Also:
    Jos. A Bank notch-lapel tux. Still have it, and will wear it until something better comes along.
    J&M square-toe patent leather loafers to go with the tux.
    Other unfortunate but not-as-bad shoes by Cole Haan, etc.
    Various ugly sweaters, some approaching Cosby-sweater awfulness.
    Lots of baseball caps.
