Someone make me feel better and tell me they have spent like £200 on a shirt before :D

Depends.
What brand?
Do you have (enough) money?
How often do you buy stuff? And expensive stuff?

If you like it and it's good quality then keep it and appreciate it everytime you wear it.

It's not necessarily too much, depending on brand and quality. But for this shirt, given its plainness, it is definitely too much. It's pretty bland and snoozeworthy :yawn: And even if it's great quality, it looks like a shirt you should not want to wear for years.

That's just my opinion :angel:

As £70 are approaching the value of a handful of pebbles, I think it was not too expensive.

I spent €80 on a t-shirt once, so no £70 is majorly expensive.

Agreed. I wouldn't wear it for free. What kind of fabric is that? It looks like a vinyl table covering.

fuck yeah thats too much. unless it is made with the pubic of virgins, shaved on the night of their deflowering and encrusted with jewels from atlantis, that is too much to pay for a tee shirt.

plus the shirt that you have is not a tshirt, but it is an ugly shirt.

I echo the sentiment of this thread. I'm not opposed to spending that kind of money on clothing IF you can afford it. However, you are kind of giving off a vibe of trying to promote how well off you are.

Oh and no that shirt is boring/ugly and not worth your money. Go return it and buy some better looking apparel. :)

drake3781
Apr 26th, 2009, 04:52 AM
Well, I like the shirt; it would look fine with pants or even shorts and sandals (dare I say flipflops?).

Just don't try to look dressed up, but look casual and comfortable in it. Something very nice, dressed down, is a good look.

True. You can find a shirt that looks just like that for a tenth of the price or less.

I wouldn't be surprised if, like many other products and especially store brand food, the shirts you buy for $100 are the exact same shirt made by the exact same people in the exact same place as another shirt for $5. The only diference with those products is the label.

Still, I constantly hear people gasp when I talk about buying off-brands. I really don't understand why a label is so important to people. If you have to have it, make the label yourself and sew it on.

But the one bought for $5 falls apart after wearing it twice while the one bought for $100 last for years ;)

p.s. are you to drunk/stupid/retarded to understand that different things have different uses and are thus worth more or less than a tshirt?

for example might 140$ might be too much to spend on a tee shirt, but a fair price for shoes? i know, i cant ask you to think, thats too much. its unfair of me.

that is ok for a high brand polo, too much for a t-shirt, well it depends by the quality and brands, have got some of d&g and armani that are more expansive, not that much for a shirt, and I'm confused because that stuff is kinda a mix p

Delvaux is a brand that is completely hand made, making one small wallet takes 3 months to fabricate, plus they give a 30-year quarantee on their purses, when something is broken, they will give you a new one. They are also the purses that all royal families use, it has stores in the USA, since it's one of the biggest luxury purse vendors.

70 pounds is about US 105? That's really pricy. The only items I have in that range are winter jackets.

I wouldn't mind splurging on the occasional item of clothing if I came into some money. But you have to pick your spots, and that was not a good spot, and you know it.

That shirt better look better in life.

first of all: your not-t-shirt is very nice.
£70 is too much if it's not good quality and produced in china. but if the fabric and the sowing are of good quality and it was produced in europe, then it's not too much.

I don't understand why it's too much if it is produced in China, but not if it's produced in Europe, unless you are saying that there is no way it can be of good enough quality if its a Chinese make.

i didn't say anything that's produced in china is of bad quality. someting can be from there, be cheap and of good quality. but if something is produced in europe, it costs more, that's why so much stuff is produced in china.

i have friends who try to live of designing fashion, they produce in small numbers and try to do it in switzerland or close countries, and so it's clear their clothes cost more than someone who is producing 20'000 t-shirts in china.

if a product is well made, made by hand, made by well trained and talented artisans. and offered with a long time warranty or promise of quality that the brand/maker will stand behind the product than it can be made in mars for all i care.

one thing that will say about being made is china is that it is both wrong and borderline illegal what some brands do, which is label their products as made in italy or spain or france but really there were made in china. (i'm talking to you chanel and prada)
