you can only say this if you've never bought something that was trendy and went out of style. everyones bought something that they later thought, "what was i thinking?"

^^this is true. and fashion goes out quite rapidly. which is why i find the argument of quality to be quite absurd. unless your more into a classic flavor, the "quality" garment you just paid dearly for will be out of style loooooong before service life is up. but i guess that's a part of the idea.
comes down to priority, i suppose. and, for some, a sense of security. like walking around with a jock strap.
i personally don't want to project the image that i rely on anything besides my charisma to carry the attention of others.
that is definitely not to say that that's all this is about.
the topic demands much more than a paragraph. i'm just not interested enough to throw any more than that out

There's also something else to consider.. since 95% of RSers are still living at home with their moms, me included. Most people that live at home don't have priorities, at the most probably lease/finance on a car and going out so the extra money they have probably can be justified on buying designer brands even though they should be saving up for a down payment on a house..

Clothes are an indication of status. I like indicating that I am higher status than most proles on this planet.

also, like everyone has said, it really depends on preference. I'd definately spend (invest) on a suit rather than a 160$ master mind t-shirt or a 120$ comme des garcon tshirt.

but then again if you look good you feel good ; )

Agreed. But I think for certain pieces, it doesn't hurt to spend a bit more. Like if you get a really nice pair of jeans that you know you'll be wearing for quite a few years or like a nice tailored suit. I wouldn't bother spending all kinds of money on all clothes though.

i managed to find the new store in hong kong last month when i went back.

the retail prices from the flagship store is about $20 more expensive than resellers. wtf.

i only like their PLAY stuff, all the other stuff are a little too metrosexual and expensive.

I don't see a problem on spending alot on coats, especially peacoats since they are timless and never go out of style.

Being on OP's question :

How i see on justifying buying something with more of a brand name, better cut so forth is cuz i'm in a suit all day, 5 days a week possibly 6 days a week. I rather fork out the money and buy something brand name, with better cut and quality (it helps if you know the type of mats and style.) VS something cheaper, quality might be below the brand but not like something out of your dollar store. Armani VS Zara for example.

That being said, on my weekends if i'm home or going out with some friends and just chilling, i can't see myself ever buying those C.Audiger stuff. I'm good with my A&F, Zara and athletic gear.

just to clarify, you like their stuff with the hearts on it but think the rest of their stuff is metrosexual?

i cant possibly see how a multimillionaire would wear anything fake. maybe it was specially made? who knows, but it ruined the brand for me.

They go out of style if you wear the same peacoat over and over like most dirtbags who own peacoats.

lol people get sensitive on this thread.

try posing this question on redflagdeals.com and then the same thing on styleforum.net. The gulf between the two extremes is like Bill Gates and a somali farmer.

Some people blow money on what *I* find to be the most ridiculous shit (90% of all car mods, $30 DVDs to be seen once, $200 on drinks at a club, a $2,000 14 day "vacation" that mostly involves lying on a beach, a $3,000 computer system to play WoW on to extend your virginity, a 400 sq ft yaletown condo for half a million, a BMW X6 etc.)

If you partake in any of those, ask yourself - Is a $1,000 suit or $350 oxford shoes that will both last at least 3 years really that unreasonable after all? Hell a couple of Canucks games will wipe that out. Now where do you get off on criticizing how others spend their own money, unless it's blatantly stupid (See: $250K jeans).
