Two prices, one outfit

afford vs not Two prices, one outfit

At the end of the day, you are really the only one who knows what you’re wearing. That is, unless you’re going around obnoxiously shouting what brands of clothing you wear and the prices you paid. If you’re doing that, please stop; no one likes a showoff. Anyhow, because of this, sometimes it might make sense to skip the designer stuff and pay a bit more reasonable prices for your clothing. Note: remember that I do always encourage quality > quantity, but hey, different strokes for different folks.

I got the idea for the picture above off of a guy named jdbee on reddit, where he posted one outfit at two different price points. The aesthetic outcome of the outfit may be comparable, but the prices are astronomically different.  Without watches considered (since the Rolex price is a numerical outlier), you could pay a total of $315 for the outfit above or a whopping $3480.

You may be wondering which side I chose from? Well, let’s just say there’s a bit of mix and match going on, and I’ll let you guess.
