I love the thick leather jackets, but $1,200 or more for one?!?!?! "You got to be out of your mind!" By comparison, a $100 t-shirt is cheap. I wear t-shirts year-round and MUCH more often than leather jackets. I can buy 12 or more frequently worn $100 t-shirts for the same amount as one infrequently worn $1,200 leather jacket (not to mention other considerably more expensive leather jackets). Moreover, when I infrequently wear my leather jackets, it is generally for short distances while outside and exposed to the elements. As soon as I get inside, the jacket comes off. In contrast, I wear my t-shirt all day long, inside and out. My frequently worn t-shirt is front and center for 8-12 hours, whereas my infrequently worn leather jacket is front and center for an hour at most. Thus, my t-shirts are arguably much more important and more deserving of an investment in quality. I enjoy high quality clothing from top to bottom. I invest in quality sneakers, jeans, t-shirts, henleys, collared shirts, flannels, sweatshirts, hoodies, and jackets (I also invest in quality work clothing, including suits, ties, dress shirts, and dress shoes). The cost of these items is silly and, in each instance, I am well beyond the point of diminishing returns. That said, the cost is worth it TO ME because I enjoy the incremental increase in quality. Ps: I dry clean EVERYTHING, including my quality t-shirts (the only exceptions being my underwear, socks, and sleeping gear). Crazy? You bet.
