Let's say that all of your clothes were thrown out and you were given a budget of, say, up to £1,000 to get fully kitted out again. How do you spend it?

An M&S suit + fitting, one pair black brogues. Seven white linen shirts - four long sleeve, three short; seven plain back 100% cotton t-shirts. Three pairs cuffed chino joggers, two pairs cuffed joggers, two pairs cargo shorts. A decent quality thick zipped hoodie, and a thin one, preferably with bold patterns or design. One olive m65 jacket. One grey baggy beanie, one black trawler beanie. some Vans and some Doc Martens. Enough plain black underwear and socks to last a fortnight. One seiko diver's watch.

I reckon I'm probably on about £500, the rest would go on drugs.

I have short legs, so the straight cut ones are always a faff.

Believe me, everything I wear is for practicality first, style a distant second.

I have about 5 t shirts in different colours, a few shirts, three pairs of jeans, some casual trainers, some running/gym trainers, some smart casual shoes and two pairs of smart/formal shoes.

I have three suits for work, enough work shirts for a week in white, blue and one or two other clours.

Several jumpers, some exercising gear and some socks.

That's literally it, I read it in a minimalism book once about the benefits it brings and it's bene really useful for me. If I don't wear something for more than a year I just give it to charity.

It would probably cost me about 600 to get back up to speed again.

Few of pairs of nice Levi's or similar- £150
Five disposable pairs of Primarni black jeans for weekdays- £50
Two week's worth of different band shirts- £200
2-3 black dress shirts, slim fit- £60
1 pair of Converse, 1 pair of DCs, 1 pair of waterproof walking boots- £100
Nice wool/fur lined denim jacket for when it's cold- £50
Impractical but stylish leather jacket for gigs/nights out- £120
Several disposable Primarni hoodies- £50
Socks and pants, various- £50
Cheapo aviators- £5

Anything I missed? I don't think I could even manage to spend a grand. At work my clothes are hidden under protective gear so there's no dress code. I've no need for a suit and probably never will. I don't need to dress up for the ladies because being a long haired musician type lets me pull plenty of mental slags already.

I'd spend the rest on booze I reckon.

Really can't go wrong with Levis. On that note anybody got any recommendations for brands that come close or better?

I am yet to find a pair of jeans that look as good and are as durable as Levis are.

My default pair of jeans are Cheap Monday ones I bought in 2011 for £28. They're still in great condition but it's probably only in the last few years they've had frequent use.

We just recently had a thread about how you'd spend £1000 kitting out a home office. Did OP win a grand on a scratchcard or something?

No. £2,000.

Same OP actually. I will be setting up a home office in three or four months, coronavirus permitting, but this one was more out of curiosity to see what kind of brands and styles you lads would opt for.

Assuming I need a year-round wardrobe:

10 Uniqlo Oxford button-down long-sleeve slim fit shirts in white and light blue
One Uniqlo v-neck sweater in merino, one in lambswool
One Harris tweed or coarse worsted blazer, one corduroy blazer (sale or charity shop)
One pair of leather-soled brown half brogues, one pair of rubber-soled brown brogue boots (whatever Northampton brand is on sale or factory seconds, possibly charity shop find)
Two pairs of chinos, two pairs of cords, one pair of wool slacks (slim fit, whatever brand is on sale)
Cheapo ASOS Harrington jacket, wool pea coat from a charity shop
14 pairs of socks, boxer briefs and undershirts (light grey) from wherever is cheap, probably H&M
Fulton Ambassador umbrella
Some fat quarters of Tana Lawn fabric for handkerchiefs

I can sew, so I'd do my own alterations and add elbow patches to the sweaters and blazers. Yes, I am an extremely specific kind of twat.

What are these like? The pictures on Amazon suggest they're a bad shape and fit.

£25 to cover my bits and be decent. £50 on a helmet. The rest on a second hand YT Jeffsy. Fuck it, if it's that bad i'm sending it.

Fits fine for me. Ultimately YMMV depending on body and whether you prefer v-necks.

I prefer henley shirts, but I worry they'd look too much like a pyjama top.

I need to order some t-shirts before I go on holiday in a few weeks. Where do people get them from these days? I'm out of the loop.

How often do you lads actually buy clothes? I don't think I've bought any in about 6 years come to think of it.

Outside of work clothes I bought a couple of shirts from John Lewis earlier in the year because they had a sale on and you can click and collect from Co-op. Aside from that, a new jacket and a handful of plain t-shirts to keep me going I haven't bought anything I wear on a regular basis in about 2/3 years. I doubt I bought a single thing last year.

If it's holiday clothes, then go to TK MAxx or Sports Direct. Maybe take one nice short sleeve shirt with you and a pair of sensible shorts in case you end up at dinner somewhere.

I was forced to buy a load of new jeans and trousers a while back because they all seem to have inexplicably shrunk around the waist. I still have a load of tops I've been wearing since I was about 19 though.

I have concert shirts I got at 14 which still fit me 15 years later.
