A nice leather coat for $340. Turns out it was fake and made in Pakistan. Zipper broke after one winter and the "leather" broke .


I still have cheap coats from 15 years ago who look like new despite me not treating them careful.

$30 for a new wool winter coat, in 1978. I shop at thrift stores.


I will be following this with interest. I see a lot of fashion spreads in women's magazines, and I think, who would spend $900 for one skirt? or $380 for a blouse? And I am not talking exclusively "Vogue" either.



I asked a relative, who is a professional and makes big bucks, the same question - her answer, about $80 for a winter coat.


Not knocking the people who do spend a lot, hey, the clothes in the thrift stores have to come from somewhere!!

That would be my newest suit, for $500 which I bought for a family wedding and wore exactly once about 10 years ago.
