There's not really much in terms of clothing/accessories that can't be bought by anyone with a decent salary. Want to show of your wealth? Show off your real estate holdings.
Bogner pants aren't that pricey to begin with, maybe in the 500-600 range. The jacket she was considering was 2K+.

I know what you're saying, a girl hitting up a Daddy for an expensive jacket, especially at MSRP.

What I'm saying is if you want to look the part, you can get $2000 Bogner jackets for less than $1000 on sale and it's not really that big of an expense if someone really thinks that's the way to 'fit in.' Which is really what the OP is looking for: a way to look wealthy without the hassle of having money.

Yeah, but the cool jox wear Under Armour so it doesn't matter how much it costs.

The truly rich go to the designer and select something from the current collection. It is then made in their size and color choice, with an inside label. Unless you are also familiar with the designer, you won't recognize it.

Most rich kids don't go the couture or bespoke route for everyday wear.

UA rocks from a performance standpoint! We just spent a pretty penny on base layers for our kids to go skiing/snowboarding.

Nah, there's other things as well. Fine art collections, wine collections, exotic car collections. Most people I know who have PNW's in the 10's of millions have one main home (none are over about 6000 s/f) and a smaller vacation home/beach house/ski condo. I only know one couple who has worldwide real estate holdings, and frankly I don't actually believe that they have as much money as they allude to.

In addition to the jacket he'd need the high end skiis and condo in Aspen or Chamonix or anyone would see right through him.

LOL! My husband wears Under Armour and he's far from a "cool jock." It's like wearing Nike sneakers. Whatever.
