When you buy expensive clothes, what are you paying for?
We all want to wear nice clothes, but we also want to get reasonably good value for our hard-earned dollars. I may be able to afford a $500 shirt, but I’m not sure what makes it better than a $50 shirt that I get tailored. For example, here are three price points for a classic light blue OCBD. This question isn’t about these specific brands; they’re just examples I’m using to show that there are wide price variations with little apparent product differences.$50: $30 at Uniqlo plus $20 of tailoring. This is the basic option.$175 at Alton Lane. This shirt comes with minor customization and is made to order.$425 at Thom Browne. This shirt has some color on the placket but seems otherwise identical.So what makes Thom Browne better than Uniqlo? Sure, it may last longer, but will it really last ten times as long? High-end brands aren’t that well known outside the fashion community, so I doubt you’re paying for the logo. For those of you who do buy expensive clothes, can you sell me on why they’re a good use of my money? Equivalently, what are you paying for?
