    Depends. I do have a rule though that I only buy things in the sale or if I've got a discount code. I try not to buy anything full price, unless I REALLY want it and don't want to risk it selling out.

    Shoes/trainers - £50 absolute max and I'd make them last for ages (eg, I've had my converses for 7 years). *For heels it's £20 as I never wear them anyway.*

    Jeans - £40 (standard topshop)

    Tops/tshirts - I'd say anything up to £15 for a flimsy top and £25 for a nice shirt

    Dresses - £35 unless it's for a special occasion like a wedding or ball.

    Undies - £2 on knickers £15 on bras

    Coats - (I usually get my coats for Christmas presents) but generally £60-£90.

    Those are all maximum I'd be willing to pay really, I generally would spend much less. I get the majority of my clothes in primark, sales, eBay and charity shops.

    I absolutely refuse to spend much more than £50 on any item of clothing, be it shoes or a jacket or whatever. Obviously, nice jackets and shoes will cost more than a pair of jeans or a top, I very rarely spend more then about 30-40 on these types of things unless I feel it's absolutely perfect for me.

    It's not that I can't afford nice clothes at all, I'm in my mid 20s now and have been making my own money for a bit now. However, I just can't warrant it when I can look great in a £20 pair of jeans, and £30 top and my Adidas original trainers. I've got a fairly expensive watch which I thing does the job of making me look like I can afford nice things, I don't need designer labels or any of that shyte.

    Not gonna lie, I get a lot of stuff at reduced price. Usually I would go with the following...

    Trainers/shoes: £25 maximum. There's always stuff like Nike and Adidas in the sales, and pretty much anything of those brands can be seen as 'acceptable' to an extent.

    Bottoms (Jeans/Trousers): Below £10, branded or not.

    Jackets, coats, and jumpers: £25 maximum. Usually branded stuff from the sales as this sort of thing from the likes of Primark aren't often good quality.

    T Shirts or other sleeveless items (e.g. Polos, etc): Less than £10, branded or not.

    Other sleeved items (sweaters, cardigans, knitted stuff): Around £10.

    Undies last ages, but a few pound for them.



    What do you all spend per type of clothing?
    Same since i grew a beer gut.

    I get most of my clothes for free. I work in a shop that provides me with free uniform every month.

    As for anything extra, I'll buy a lot from eBay or Charity Shops. I buy my underwear new, obviously, but I loathe how expensive bras typically are, particularly when you wear an uncommon size. Shoes I'm also pretty happy to buy second-hand, but again, I have weirdly-sized feet, so I need to take what I can get (within reason), so I've paid up to £100 for a pair before, though the cost per wear has been pretty low, since they're very useful.

    It depends a lot on what it is. I like quality so I don't mind spending a lot on a good piece of clothes.
    I usually spend :
    Jeans /skirts : ~30/40€
    Dresses : 50/80€
    Shoes : ~20€ if not branded and ~100€ if branded
    Underwears : ~50€ max per piece (I like underwear, also my size is complicated to find so I don't mind spending on it)
    Coats/jackets : ~150/200€ (most was 345€ tho)

    Something like that :3

    Depends on the item of clothing, to be honest.

    Most t-shirts/shirts, no more than £10 (apart from any special shirts/t-shirts etc)
    Most trousers, no more than £15
    Shoes, it depends. Trainers, usually about £20. Smart shoes, quite a bit more, because I have quite wide feet so usually get the Clarks shoes. They usually last a long time too!

    Coats/jumpers/fleeces: depends on the item, haven't bought one in ages as most of my current clothes are fine!
