    Mine are more kind of I want them but they seem too frivolous, but I would if I had more $$$. They are either priced higher than I value them or in most cases such unique pieces that I couldn't get much wear out of them.

  • CTIWBCA: Clothes That I Want But Can't Afford (Under $500)



    Clothes That I Want But Can't Afford (CTIWBCA).


    In the spirit of the "Recent Purchases" thread I thought that we could list things that we want to purchase but can't afford (or can afford, but can't justify). Any article of clothing can fall into this category.


    For the sake of staying within the Dappered "affordable style" mantra please keep all items under $500.


    --------------------


    Here are mine to start off the thread:


    Blue SuitSupply wool-linen sport coat: http://goo.gl/kyGz1 I'm in love with the color and texture. I could get away with wearing it to work at my new job, but $300 for an item that I could only wear sparingly is a bit too rich for my blood.


    Navy SuitSupply suit: http://goo.gl/kFgKF The nicest suit in SuitSupply's Spring/Summer 2012 lineup in my opinion. I was seriously considering it at $469, but then I decided to count the number of times I wore a suit to work in the last year: twice. My new job may require me to wear a suit more frequently, but I can't justify the purchase until that happens.


    TheTieBar blue ties: http://goo.gl/sh6wW http://goo.gl/xkLiU http://goo.gl/e0UTw http://goo.gl/1B7Ue I already have four bags full of ties, and at least four navy ties. (I used to wear a tie every day for work.) Still, I really like these. Here are some TheTieBar ties that I already own if you want to steal my style: http://goo.gl/teB2o http://goo.gl/AokKy http://goo.gl/VUSQ1


    McAllister's in Merlot http://goo.gl/6kiGs or Strands in Brown http://goo.gl/HPxRH Black shoes are the norm in the UK. I don't own any brown shoes, but it would be nice to have one pair. Still, I don't know when I would ever wear them.


    Converse Jack Purcells http://goo.gl/cj2ju or Chuck Taylors http://goo.gl/AgK9x I don't own any sneakers, and it might be nice to have a pair for weekends.
