1500 on shoes, but only 26 on a button up?

As stated before, it depends on how much disposable income and how much value you see and are willing to spend on an item.
Like in this forum, a lot are willing to spend $200+ on some Air Jordans but are skimping on $15 basketball shorts and $5 tees.
In other forums, they might see $100 Jordans overpriced but they spend $80 tees and $350 on jeans.

Well this is forum about shoes so ...
Some synergy is still needed in that one I think.

To be quite honest though, you shouldn't really skimp when it comes to shoes and outerwear. I think those are the pieces where you can get a good amount use out of. Like a nice leather jacket, it can last you decades if you take care of it.

No such thing for me, If I want something i'll get it.

I got 5 dollar tee's and I have 300 dollar ones.

But it all depends on the person, some people could care less about clothing period.

One thing I don't do is buy a pair of Jordans, and get the matching Hoody and T-Shirt. That right there would be over $300.

I like to keep things simple when it comes to casual wear.

I'm a baller on a budget.
I guess brother. I tend tear my clothing till I can't anymore. I have shirts I still wear from my freshman year of high school and I'm a junior in college now. Sneakers are the same way. But no shoe warrants a 1500 price tag.

My limits are based on value, not on the price of the item.

The item has to be discounted at least 40% for me to make the purchase, no matter what.

And like RFX said, buying good quality, classic style items is the best way to get the most out of your dollars.

+1

if its something i know i am going to get plenty of use out of, then I dont mind spending a bit more on em.

i have to wear dress shoes to work 4 days a week (yay for casual fridays) so needless to say, i need something that i like that i can get plenty of use out of.  I probably spent around $300-400 for each pair of my 3 dress shoes in my rotation, but I've gotten a good 5 years out of 2 of em (just added my newest pair to the rotation this year).  I try to make sure they dont get scuffed up, polish when needed, and then take them to the local cobbler to get them resoled when they wear down.  The uppers are made of nicer leather that has held up quite well for 5 years so it was worth splurging a little bit on them.

I take care of everything. I have coats that are sub $150 and shoes that are sub $60 that are still in great shape. It all depends on how you treat your stuff. I know things have wear and tear but putting cushions back in shoes is key. So I don't believe the "you have to pay top dollar for quality" lingo.

i mean, i will admit that a portion of the price is for the label, but that doesn't necesarily mean that cheaper stuff is gonna be on the same level.

my first pair of dress shoes i bought for work I got at banana republic.  they were fairly standard black dress shoes that probably cost me a $100.  with regular wear and tear, they wore out in about a year.  if i accidentally kicked the side of my desk (not even that hard), entire chunks of "leather" would peel off.  as bad as it looked, i dont even know if it was real leather.  I've had one pair of Ferragamos for about 5 years now, worn atleast twice a week and they hardly have a nick on em.  Even when I've scraped up against something, the leather wont peel off.  Any minor scratches and stuff, I just do a nice polish and they look good as new.  Forget about the label, just in terms of value I've gotten a lot more from that $350 pair over the last 5 years, than I did the $100 pair in 1 year.
