    but you say in your profile that you judge on first impressions
    Yep... not what they look like though

    i'm aware its possible to form opinions about people not based on appearance. but you said ''first impressions'' which is different to having an educated opinion of someone.
    well, for me it is possible to gain an impression of someone from things other than how they dress...

    and if I was to judge someone I wouldnt think along the lines of "oh they're a rah, they're clearly a chav" etc just by clothes...

    good for you then tinkerbee, tho i suspect that even for you appearance influences impressions albeit at a subconscious level. I don't base opinions of people on how they look, but i'd be lying if i said it didnt make an impression the very first time i met them, as first impressions leave all else to the imagination so it's hard not to. i do find however that when i go out for a meal with my gf, i always wear my suit when we do this, that people are much more polite and respectful to me, older people come and chat etc yet when i dress normally i find a lot of older people avoid me (think i'm a hoody lol). sadly appearance will always play a part which i why i like to make the effort and buy nice clothes

    I don't like to buy expensive things... My most expensive item of clothing is probably my Miss Sixty jeans. But they're damn comfy. :p:

    Most expensive overall: £400 dress which I was supposed to wear for my girlfriend's summer ball at her uni... but that I am now WAY too fat for.

    Biggest investment: My very battered, much-loved black Buffalo shoes which cost £79.90 when I bought them for my 16th birthday. I wear them most days.

    I feel very poor now...


    My most expensive item is my glasses for £125, but I would have been happy with cheaper ones has they had any that suited my face shape! And I've so far got 18months of use out of them, and wear them everday at the minute, so a worthwhile investment if they suit me.

    Personally i think you all need to spend more money on your selves. Last week i bought a pair of boating shoes and a matching yacht, those cost me £6,000,000 - a little overpriced perhaps, but worth it.

    My jeans are made from a material made by weaving the hair of alpaca's with that of virgins, they were reduced to £7,000

    I think my favourite is my Coat though, it's made from a mix of kangaroo, baby seal and snow tiger fur with a golden eagle collar... Mum bought me that, but i looked on ebay the other day and one exactly the same sold for £50,000








    seriously, the most expensive item of clothing i own is probably D&G Jeans... but there's no chance i paid full price for them. The most I tend to spend is £60 for a jacket or coat or on shoes (I don't wear leather so I got my formal shoes from a place that hand makes them from a synthetic alternative) I cant grasp wanting to spend so much on clothes!

    "The highest quality, casual, All-American lifestyle clothing for aspirational men and women." Thats there strapline. I think you can interpret that as what I ve said. And yes I do judge on apperance, its human nature.
    Just about every clothing company, from primark to prada will have a slogan or a strapline or something in their marketing that says almost exactly the same thing as that, its called advertising.

    If you're trying to imply that someone who buys less expensive clothes is less shallow or arrogant than someone who does you're not putting across a very convincing argument. Why should it be any of your concern how much someone spends on something?

    I mean really, who gives a **** if someone spent £200 on a jacket and you only feel comfortable spending £15?? Having expensive taste does not make someone shallow or arrogant

    If accessories count then my most expensive watch is 2 and a half thousand. If not then BOSS jacket which was around 1500 if memory serves. I love shoes - though I'm not entirely sure of much my collection is worth - I have Climacool trainers for tennis which were 120 and maybe around 150 or so on my actual dress shoes, can't remember.

    Dinner Suit £60, I've never seen the point in spending too much on clothes. You get what you pay for to a point and beyond that you pay for the name, fine if that interests you, but I'd rather spend money on other things.

    Im not going to say Im in favour or against designer clothing, but all those saying

    "how can you spend xyz on expensive clothes when people are starving"

    ever stopped to think how all the high street stores (primark, etc) have introduced an era of very cheap fashionable clothing? It is very well documented in the media (recent BBC 3 series, and a piece in the times a few months ago), the terrible conditions in third world factories used by many of the cheap high street brands.
