I get pretty much everything from Goodwill now, so...not much.

That is bordering on ridiculous in my book.
To think I felt guilty for spending $60 on jeans once...

Are you for real?

I can't recall the last time I paid less than $100 for denim. My jeans range from $150-300. It's not from lack of trying, but the premium denim lines just work better on my figure and being that it's something I wear every day, I think it's worth the price.

And I don't think $40 for shorts is out of line either. Heck, Victoria's Secret shorts (which aren't exactly high end) run $40+.

I've paid anywhere from $500+ for a nice pair of shoes to $5 for a shirt. Whatever looks good.

I don't consider myself a very fashionable person so I'm pretty cheap on the clothes. I make a decent living but I generally spend:

$30 on pants
$20 shorts
$15-20 shirts
$150 on suits, I have 4 of them.

I generally buy my clothes from Target but only when they're on sale and the suits at Penney's.

Three things that I do not cheap out on are underwear, socks and running shoes.

I have nothing against a bargain, but I am 5' 11 and not skinny, and I could walk around a mall, or Target, or Walmart for hours and never find anything that fits me. There are a few brands I know fit my body and they aren't exactly cheap, but I buy fewer items so I can justify the cost.
Things that fit me: Eileen Fisher, which I only buy on sale, and a type of slacks from Eddie Bauer (Bremerton) that cost about $75. I have some NYD Jeans that fit well also and they were $135.
I have a closet full of cheap clothes that I never wear, so I've learned that it's better for me to pay more and buy less.

I buy most of it at the thrift store, but every once in awhile, I'll splurge. If I do that, I'll go where they make quality clothes, not paper-thin clothes like what they sell at Walmart.

This is what I do; I just bought a pair of $200 Boss pants, and they sit next to my five dollar pants I purchased from a bazaar in Asia.

What ever looks good, plus quality and material, along with a price that does not exceed what I think the value should be, I will purchase it. I do not have a floor or ceiling price.

T-shirts are my annoyance. I won't pay more than $2.00 for one, so usually it's at a thrift store or Sal Army. If I can get them for a quarter at a garage sale I will
The rest of my attire is a case by case decision.
