If i find good clothes i usually buy a few pairs etc.....still have very good t-shirts (kept their colour) from 1989 !..........i usually only wear M65 jackets (have other special outdoor gear)that i've been wearing since the mid 80's...on my 3rd one now......i like stuff that lasts.........BUT as for bikes i've owned i lost count over 50ish i guess
I tend to buy clothes online from the next sale, cheapskate i now, But some go to second hand shops, like my mother in law, but the disadvantage of having parents that ran a children's charity was that we were given loads of stuff for jumble sales and my parents made us chose clothing from the donated stuff, some was great but it made you feel that you just wanted something new, so on clothes I always insist on new even if it means the children don't have loads of stuff at least it's new. But bikes, well sod the children I know what's important.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
