I thought this topic would be interesting. What sort of clothing purchases have you made in the past that you regret? Perhaps, as in my case, it is because you purchased the item before you aquired the knowledge that you have now, and were easily persuaded by labels. For me, that purchase was 3 years ago. I purchased a Giorgio Armani Classico shirt for $380 at the Armani boutique. I still have yet to wear it, and it sits inside my armoir with the tags still attached to it. I admit to buying this shirt due to the name, and much less the quality. In fact, I was more into labels at the time, but since joining this forum and expanding my sartorial knowledge, I much prefer quality over labels. This isn't to say that Armani is bad quality, it's just that looking back, I would have spent that $400 on a Borelli.
