Building a Wardrobe on a Budget
You all seem a lot richer than me!
I have read some of the articles on constructing a wardrobe on a budget, but I want to hear from you. What is the best way to purchase necessary items and do so conservatively? Conversely, what items must I splurge on?
I need some more chinos, I need another pair of slim fit jeans (selvedge? yeah right!), I need my first blazer, a cardigan or two, a varsity jacket, some tapered shorts, and a couple pair of casual shoes. And the list goes on and on. How can I do this without breaking the bank? Are there secret places to shop? Right now, I'm having to just get lucky and buy on sale items from Asos and the like. Topman is typically out of my price range.
I know there are a lot of questions here, I just need some general guidance on how to build a wardrobe from the ground up when I'm just not rolling in cash yet.
