    Clothes serve one main function: keeping you warm. Even a set of rags will serve both of these functions, despite also looking pretty naff. The other two functions of preserving your decency and looking fashionable are merely cultural additions, and while the former is important the latter is simply there because of our own vanity. So yes, it's pretty pointless.

    I would argue that their main function is comfort, under which the condition of providing warmth lies, expanding on this, investing in clothing of greater quality can result in greater comfort to the wearer, therefore, in my eyes, not pointless

    80% of my fiends are from the gulf.
    One girl I know spent 2000 pound on a designer bag.
    I knew another girl she was from UAE her dad was executive manager of an oil mine so he was loaded. She was spoilt as hell but was surprisingly kind.

    If the quality is there and the money is in the bank, I'd be prepared to spend anything on something that is nice.

    But generally I wouldn't spend £100s on single items of casual clothes unless it's a jacket or coat, or a fairly nice pair of shoes.

    Suits, if I had the money, I would be prepared to spend thousands but as a student my budget is relatively modest at £250. Shirts and ties are the same, as long as the materials are good I'm happy.

    If it's your money she can't really say how you should be spending it unless you're spending it on illegal substances. That being said nearly £400 for a Stone Island jacket or something is ridiculous

    If you can afford to spend that much, then no. If you can't, the it's silly. I would if I could afford it.

    My favourite brand is Armani and I don't mind paying the price because it looks good (especially the suits) and is aesthetically appealing

    It depends how much of a priority you put on clothes and your disposable income

    I always used to think that it was such a waste when you could get the same thing for a fraction of the price, but I've come to appreciate the quality and fit of some brands and I'm realising more and more that there's nothing wrong with treating yourself to stuff every now and again.

    Trust me it's all about the money, I need a really good job, when I was younger I didn't really care about fashion I was so broke now I'm older I do care about it a lot, you know what going out with friends having a good time is more important than buying clothes you gotta find the right balence, mum has two kids she's on benefits she ain't paying mortgage and she gambles daily over £30 most of the time she loses

    Its different when you are a student to when you have a job and a bit more cash but I do think spending a bit more to get quality clothes is worth it. When you're 18+ you won't grow so if you get stuff that's durable and you look after it it can last many years. My uncle always dresses well and he still wears jackets, suits and shoes that he bought in the late 1970s/early 1980s.

    You don't have to spend too much though to get decent quality. You could build the bulk of a wardrobe that would suit both work and casual just by shopping at TM Lewin and Uniqlo.
