Good Clothes That Worth Your 'Investment'

Good Clothes That Worth Your 'Investment'

With all the choices for clothing nowadays, it can be confusing to understanding what is a good purchase and what is not. The thing to remember is that cheaper is not always better.

Sales for well-made clothing can make good items inexpensive, but poorly made clothing is often cheap in every way. Good clothing is an investment that will last forever if you are careful.

Cheap Is Expensive

Look in your closet. Note any clothing that is not a well-known, well-made brand, which you bought on the spur of the moment because it was cheap. After you wear these items and clean them, they don’t look the same. This makes cheap clothing quite expensive. It’s more akin to renting an outfit than buying an outfit you can wear repeatedly.

Quality Suit

If you really want to look good, it’s worth spending money on a very well made, high-end suit. Not only that - it’s worth the money to get it altered just for you. The money you spend has to do with the type of fabric as well as the styling.


You can recognize a good deal by checking the designs. Loose buttons, loose threads, and other construction issues are a sign that this is not your suit. In addition, even though you’re going to perfect the suit by getting it altered, it should not be ill-fitting on your shoulders, or across the chest. A good suit should last you a good ten years.

Your Winter Coat

Coats are a great place to spend money. You only need one or two in the winter - one for work and one for leisure. Styles of coats rarely change, so a good coat will last you a lifetime if you buy the right one and then take care of it properly. Think wool pea coat or overcoat, or a good down jacket for leisure. When you consider how long a good coat should last, you can spend a lot more on it because it’s an investment.


Jeans and Other Denim Items

Everyone likes wearing jeans or other denim, and it’s been around forever. Expensive jeans will have a high stitch count and be thicker. That makes them feel more luxurious and act more durable. Pay close attention to construction and fabric to ensure that you get the best bang for your buck.


Also, the cut is important. You want to like how the jeans look on your body. Don’t pay one bit of attention to size, since today the sizing is depending on brand. Only pay attention to how they’re made, the material, and how they fit. In addition, try to stick with the real colors of denim which are black, indigo, faded and white. The other colors aren’t really denim. And with any jeans, darker always looks more fashionable.


Quality Shoes

Cheap shoes are everywhere. They are poorly made, bad for your feet and back, and not comfortable to walk in. What’s the point of having a cute pair of shoes if you can’t walk in them, no matter how cheap they are?


Spend the extra money on good, solidly-made shoes that are made from natural fibers that will last if you care for them. A good pump (pointy or rounded) or sling back never goes out of style.

 It's true that clothing isn’t an investment compared to putting money in the bank and earning money back. But if you think of your clothing as an investment that will last you for at least a decade, it becomes clear that spending money on the important non-trendy parts of your wardrobe does save money. Saving money is almost as good as earning money.
