    No way. Why? Because that's ridiculous. The most expensive shirt I own is $20, the rest are those multicolor, 3-pack numbers. icon_neutral.gif

    i consider Ariodante a very important member on RealJock , i would pay attention to what he says if its bad or good .

    i saw the first video for u i remember it was bad , i remember advising you to improve your topic material , i think this video would not success but still better than the old one . Dear u need : 1. more energy in your voice more expressions you sounded so bored , 2.the topic is horrible it makes the viewers thinks that u think they r stupid , get a better topics that was so bad.

    you look good that should help u.

    The OP can say whatever he wants as long as he wants. I just close my eyes and pretend he's Daniel Day Lewis in "My Beautiful Launderette."

    I would... I'm a Ralph Lauren polo freak.. but having said that.. 90% of the polos I buy are on SALE and below that figure. If I spend $50.00 (and I just did, actually, via Ralph Lauren.com), it really has to be a special occasion (and the shirt I bought was on sale, will be for work and I haven't bought many shirts this year anyway). In the end, so long as it has been carefully considered (and budget considerations) do what makes sense.

    I honestly dont think a shirt is WORTH more than 50-60 bucks (usless it gives you wings)... its not because I cant afford it.

    yes, but kind of an Armani and Kenneth Cole freak, though I usually wait until I travel to buy clothes. It depends on what the shirt is for.

    in today's society, people are more likely to spend $50~100 on pants in comparison to shirts. People notice if you wear the same shirt 2 days in a row, they don't care if you wear the same pants multiple days in a row. even at that... people are more likely to spend $10~20 for a shirt, and $20~40 for a pair of pants.

    Be honest: all of my shirts (minus tshirts and undershirts) were purchased in the $50-$70 range. Albeit I don't go out and buy my own clothes unless I really need a new one because I've gotten paint on one of them or the another is faded and isn't in good shape. I wear my shirts down to the threads.

    But I do agree with the OP. When I had money, I'd buy whatever I wanted. If I wanted something, I bought it. I never used "it's too expensive" (other then for things like cars and houses!) I wanted - I needed - I bought it.

    Nope.

    Several years ago I decided to buy Bill pajamas for Xmas. I went to the GAP and they had a set for $80.00.

    Made in Bangladesh. So I left and used the 'puter to find out about the manufacturer and then what it cost to make them. It turns out the mark-up was 70 bucks. icon_lol.gif

    Caveat emptor.

    i have spent within that range in the past. I'm budgeting right now though so no, right now i would not. Usually though I go to off-price stores and get merchandise easily for 80% off retail. that's how i got a pair of $200 jeans for $30

    If you ever do get in to modeling, don't ever mention your opinions on clothing. You'll basically be paid to wear the clothes and keep your mouth shut.
    Just letting you know since you created that thread asking about modeling earlier.

    I don't know if its WORTH 100$ in terms of quality, fabrik, etc but yes, I have bought tee shirts for even more than 100$.
    I love Burberry polos, Ralph Lauren tee-shirts, Zadig&Voltaire etc...

    It depends on who makes it and what the occasion is. I like the clothing from Express, American Eagle, Nordstrom, Armani, etc. I'm not gonna by a plain T shirt for $50. Henley's, jackets, button downs, and graphic T's I might.

    I do and will continue, the cut on the more expensive shirts seem to fit better( most guys aren't oblong) and don't rip apart a month later..... unless there made by Express

    $50 yeah sure, $100 ? Hell no.

    Shirts aren't really investment pieces so I don't see the point in shelling out top dollar for something that won't last.

    The mid market caters well enough supplying shirts in various different cuts/sizes so that you can buy something that flatters you.

    I'm more interested in what it's made of not who designed it, a shirts a shirt (unless it's some elaborate Libarace style shirt in which case it's poor taste to wear it anyway :lolicon_smile.gif

    I think I understand what the OP was trying to communicate in his video... I think

    Anyways, ya I have spent $50 to $100 on shirts. I don't make a habit of it because there are other things out there much more important... i.e. food, savings, investing...
