New spring wardrobe on the cheap

This absurdly mild winter in the Detroit has gotten me thinking about spring, and after several months of non-purchasing, the dam broke...in a fairly substantial way--

I thought I would post this as an example (if only for newer members) of what can be done with pretty controlled expenditure. Through the B&S forum here, scouring for sales, the 'bay, and the Cladmen sale for the Eton pocket squares, I added to my spring wardrobe:

10 new shirts, 6 BB, 2 RLPL new with tags, 2 Turnbull and Asser,
8 new ties, 3 RLPL new with tags, 2 Duchamp, 2 seersucker of various makes, 1 Eton
5 pocket squares, 2 Eton, 1 misc., 2 linen from B&S here
1 pair Allen Edmonds Lauderdale in chili, LINB
3 pairs linen pants, 2 RL Polo, 1 J crew (iffy, doubt I will keep)
1 Brioni tropical weight SC
1 pair BB Seersucker shorts
1 pair vintage Willis & Geiger Ghurka shorts, like new
2 pairs Cords, Both Orvis, 1 with leather pocket trim, 1 without, new

Total expenditure: $1121.00

Approximate retail, WITHOUT the Brioni jacket included, would be about $3475.00-- with the jacket included, I have no idea. I'm thinking, all said and done, I paid about 15% of retail.

Everything listed is either new with tags, or like new, without any visible wear.Granted, Im a smaller size, so stuff tends get marked down a bit more, but if you're careful, this stuff IS out there.
