topic says it all.
I have found APC and BoO to relatively less expensive than other designers, yet will still separate you from the masses and allow you to enjoy your aesthetic. Of course, once you start getting into the haute range such as Jil, Dior, and RO the price to return becomes a little more nebulous. Bang is not necessarily about quality, but once you get into the luxe range you should expect it.
For really versatile, fairly priced, and well made stuff I always keep coming back to Epaulet (chinos and shirts) and Archival Clothing (sweatshirts, and tees).
Probably just Schneider. None of the actual high fashion brands have "bang for the buck". Even brands like Dries get more expensive every season with a lot of production moving to China.
A.P.C. used to make the occasional standout piece (generally outerwear) that was relatively affordable, not so sure that's true anymore. Their Louis W. stuff looks good but at those prices I'm probably going to buy from somewhere else.
As for BoO, I can't remember the last time I ever wanted something from them.
Would have to say Attachment / KKA, especially after seeing next season prices. Compared to other brands in the same aesthetic it's just great, especially for the quality and design. Tailored wool+cashmere jackets for next season are around ¥43,000, for example. Attachment denim at around ¥15,000 is very nice.
Uniqlo of course for stuff like Ultra Light Down.
+1 SS offers probably some of the most beautiful knits I've seen for such a great price compared to what many other brands offer.
Of course on the topic of knits, I also think that SNS Herning and Inverallan offer pretty good prices for mostly handmade goods.
I actually got an ultra light down after seeing your post about it
Where does one purchase stuff from KKA and attachment?
Probably anything that's not a high markup designer luxury brand.
Sns herning, howlin Morrison, engineered garments, moma
COS (if you're in europe)
