As many of the regular posters here seem to have a "wealth" of knowledge regarding the clothing industry I began to wonder - how many are actually employed in the industry and what do others do that help them financially support their "research" and facilitate their ability to enjoy the finer aspects? I have been able to infer that some are shop owners, lawyers, bankers, etc. - what do you do? Also, how much is "too much" to spend on any one article of clothing? Suits ($3.5k?), Shirts ($350?), Jacket ($2.75k?) Not trying to pry - just curious.
