Recently, a local radio station's FB page posted that their producer never comes to work with more than $50 worth of clothes to which a person responded that her cardigan cost $45 by itself. To which someone else responded:

"That's disgusting. I cant justify spending 50 on any one piece of clothing. 50 dollars for 3 pairs of jeans and 4 tops? A whole week of outfits makes more sense"

(Self-righteous, I know)

How important is price to you when deciding your purchases?

Personally, I rarely buy anything full price. As long as it looks decent, it serves its purpose and not used (except electronics), I'd rather get it cheap. If it costs more than $20, I am hesitant to buy. I'm so shameless with it that I would go back to the same store multiple times a day to use the same online coupon. I think that's because I don't make much.

However, when it's something I know I'll use repeatedly like a rice cooker or if it's food or activities (movies, concerts, trips) I don't mind shelling out the cash.

£30 on a hoodie or pair of jeans isn't impossible. Depends very much on what your income is like.

I tend to buy second hand for wares and new but on sale/cheapest seller with clothes. I only buy at full in special cases where I want to be sure I'm getting the highest quality I can get.

I usually wait for a sale at whatever store I like buying clothes at. I'm never really in need of them at that moment so it's better to just wait for a sale.

The only time I get stuff full priced is when I need them on short notice like if I going to a funeral or wedding or something of that nature.

I'm assuming you don't buy in advance either. Like, oh suits are on sale, I should get one, might have to attend a funeral sometime.

20€ for a band shirt, 20€ more for decent camo pants. Underwear and sock go for 5€ a 12-pack. So no, my clothes aren't very expensive. Only clothing I invest on are shoes, because they have to be high quality to withstand all the abuse they get.

Most of my clothes are from thrift stores or ridiculous sales my mom will find

Apart from that I only really buy steam sale games every once in a while

You learn something new everyday.

Does that really make a difference how expensive someone else's things are? If anything, it just makes me think they're douchebags. Must be the Apple fanboy stereotype.

I've never cared about "brand names" on clothes. I'll by whatever is cheapest.

Electronics I'll research to see what's most reliable.

Cars. I pretty much stick with Honda. Well made and inexpensive (relatively)

No, that was just a shitty portmanteau of "pleb" and "veblan goods."

But I agree. Realistically, I'll buy what I need to but keep it relatively conservative in price. I'm not one to drop 100 on a single shirt. For suits, though, I'm going all out. That's half the fun.

Because there's nothing wrong with it? Look at it logically, nothing's gonna happen nor will anyone know if you don't get the gross stuff. It's all washed there by the way.

I think like 75% of my clothes from ages 8-13 were my cousin's. But they were really nice so I wasn't complaining. But he's only like 5'4" so I outgrew his stuff at a pretty young age

I don't know if it completely does. Ever notice how something that looks clean smells nasty? Or how stains don't always come out no matter how much you wash em? Fabrics are incredible at holding stuff...

That's why you look at it before you buy it. It's rare anything is stained anyways. And I've never got anything that smelled bad from one.

i dont know what veblan goods are though lol.

eh forget that. further you are from an average height/build the more annoying and expensive buying a suit becomes. plus had to drop 90 bucks plus commie taxes on a shirt and more on a tie to match everyone else in the wedding party. maybe if i was mooching off my parents to pay for it rather than paying myself lol. theres nothing fun about wearing a suit, its just clothing.

its perfectly logical not wanting to wear clothes that some anonymous dude wore the shit out of. sweat in it, passed out drunk and pissed in it, shat himself in it, jizzed his pants in it, went to a furry convention in it. you just dont know where its been. sure its been washed a few times, but still.

Well that stuff has no more remnants there so there isn't any reason to worry about it.

What you know about rockin' a wolf on your noggin?
What you knowin' about wearin' a fur fox skin?
I'm digging, I'm digging, I'm searching right through that luggage
One man's trash, that's another man's come-up
Thank your granddad for donating that plaid button-up shirt
'Cause right now I'm up in her stuntin'
I'm at the Goodwill, you can find me in the (Uptons)
I'm not, I'm not stuck, I’m searchin' in that section (Uptons)
Your grammy, your aunty, your momma, your mammy
I'll take those flannel zebra jammies, second-hand, I rock that mother****er
The built-in onesie with the socks on that mother****er
I hit the party and they stop in that mother****er
They be like, "Oh, that Gucci - that's hella tight."
I'm like, "Yo - that's fifty dollars for a T-shirt."
Limited edition, let's do some simple addition
Fifty dollars for a T-shirt - that's just some ignorant bitch (shit)
I call that getting swindled and pimped (shit)
I call that getting tricked by a business
That shirt's hella dough
And having the same one as six other people in this club is a hella don't
Peep game, come take a look through my telescope
Tryna get girls from a brand and you hella won't
Man you hella won't

you dont know. people get up to some crazy shit. seriously, there are people that masturbate to russians popping balloons. do you really want to wear the clothes those people wear. have it touch your skin all day, rubbing against you and just imparting their filth into your pores?

no thank you.

that had nothing to do with the quality and everything to do with the fit to be fair. i really doubt any of you truly go 'all out' with suits, the pricetag for that is around what it costs to go on a luxury filled trip to amsterdam for a week. its all about fit & balance, innit?

"all out" for me would be dropping around 700-800 for a suit. That's fair enough, I'm not some big league player nor do I pretend to be.

Those are my sentiments but some people won't wear something even if it's second hand but never worn. Just little aversions and stuff.
