- Most expensive clothing item you have purchased?
£900 on a paul smith suit to get married in, still going strong 9 years later, still worn for weddings, job interviews and the like – got a lot of use this year and was worth every penny that my father in law paid for it.
Stuff that I actually paid for myself, probably winter climbing boots – done me 10 seasons so far, making them cheaper than most of the shoes I buy.Posted 4 years agoPJ266Member
It was bought for me if that still counts, my Barbour jacket.
Mrs Zip bought it for my Christmas present years ago and if she wrapped it up and gave it to me every year it would still be all the presents I’d ever want.
Reassuring, bought one at the weekend in a mad moment. Also applicable for this thread as its by far the most expensive single item of clothing Ive ever purchased. Though I guess my Wetsuit was more if that counts.Posted 4 years agoBreganteSubscriber
I’ve got a custom Burberry Mac which I got through a close friend who knows the manufacturer. I got to go direct to the factory and choose everything from the buttons used, liner and everything. In a shop it would be well north of £1k but I paid a fraction of that – about £220 iirc.
Saying that it’s still easily the most expensive item of clothing I’ve bought!Posted 4 years agosharkattackMember
My Arc-Teryx gore-tex jacket was £240. I tried on every waterproof jacket in Newcastle and it was the only one I liked so I held my breath and went for it. Lost my job the week after and cursed myself! I’ll probably beat that if I ever need a decent suit.
I just broke my personal record for a pair of trainers at £95. Similar story. Walked all over the place looking for some and eventually caved and bought the only ones I liked.
Just realised I have spent my life in very cheap, no name, clothing.Posted 4 years ago
