How do you finance your fashion?
I wore things from the thrift shop till today where I got my first paycheck. Feels good man
If you dont have a solid career path you should start working on it. Nothing is more /fa/ than being wealthy
>le wage cuck meme
>implying that people who enjoy their jobs dont exist
I only have four or so "designer" pieces. The rest is thrift or very generic/ unbranded mall-tier shit. There's few things I'll actually drop a lot of money on, and they're usually things that cost as much as they do for their quality, not name, like boots, parkas and coats, and denim. This seems to be a pretty normal way to make a wardrobe to me, it's easily affordable.
it can be a grind, man
you aren't really even supposed to enjoy your job; every person i know who followed their dream is miserable. it's not as fun to edit movies as a hobby in your spare time with your bros/on your own terms as it is to edit movies that you fucking hate and have to meet quotas for a corporate boss, but that ends up happening most of the time.
This. Spend money on the things people will actually notice AND where the quality increases in a comparable way with the price (like a $100 t-shirt is actually, honestly, objectively ten times better than a $10 uniqlo one). That rule applies to outerwear, blazers/jackets, bags, some shoes, trousers, and some jeans.
Expensive basics don't really make sense because most of them are not the purported brand quality anyway; they're licensed out like a subtrade. They just slap the label on at the end and poof, you can charge $200 for those socks or T-shirts or baseball caps. If money is important to you, blow your load on something that matters.

just a warning if you're going into a stem field and you think you're cool: most stem people nowadays are normies, and a lot of them are actually really cool/hot/fashionable in addition to being smart and hard working, so don't go in thinking you're a special snowflake because your face is a 7/10 and you know who dick ovens is.
also i'm drunk and projecting
part time work. Making things to sell. occasionally breaking into savings/inheritance.
Biggest one though:
once you've invested in some quality pieces with some actual resale value (not that that should be a criteria on which you base your choices of what to buy), you can then sell things on and get much of the money back (and sometimes more). This doesn't even require you to be a hypebeast, but you can build a solid wardrobe of nicer clothes this way and then sell/trade them when you get bored. Grailed is your friend.
I'm a Native American designer so people like me because injuns are 'cool' I guess.
They give me a lot of free shit because of that and my company is based on the reservation so I don't get taxed, so all my income is gross income.
It's really disgusting when you start to think about the situation
Im in computer science (intern currently) and i assure you 95% of the people are socially retarded autists. Being sociable approachable and charismatic puts you ahead of everyone.
The trick: I don't really spend THAT much more on clothing nowadays than I did back when I wasn't making ungodly amounts of money. My taste in suits is pretty pragmatic (custom-made stuff with Super 100 fabrics), my taste in shoes doesn't exceed Allen Edmonds, and I take care of everything I own fairly obsessively so it lasts as long as possible.
I acknowledge that doesn't make me some sort of sartorial god, but it honestly looks good and allows me to spend my discretionary funds on my other expensive pursuits.
Suits: As little as possible, I try to shoot for once every 2-3 months. But I rotate and care for mine EXTREMELY carefully. Also my dry cleaner stole my goddamn pocket squares that I stupidly left in my suits this time, fucking pissed.
Shirts: I just get mine washed and ironed, never dry cleaned. Dry cleaners tend to use processes that dry out and eventually break nice shirt buttons, which is annoying.
Ties: If it's a cheap tie, I'd rather just throw it away. If it's a nice tie, when it visibly needs cleaning.
26. Honestly, because it's a rare break from work and a fucked up form of socialization. I spend upwards of 14+ hours a day working, be it in terms of my legal work or in terms of studying. This is about as close as I get nowadays to talking to people (other than my hookups that I text) on a regular basis.
i compose music, then spend the money i get paid
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
i flip hyped up clothing and shoes.
mostly clothes though. Supreme sells well.
I mostly wear clean fits with pieces from brands like Haider Ackermann and Acne. I got some necklaces and bracelets from McQueen and SLP that make my fits look cool too.
Rich family. It's not all it's cracked up to be, I inherited $500,000 from Aunt when she passed away last spring and since then I've had tons of distant family reaching out to me asking for handouts and being nasty to me if I refuse. I make about 125-200k per year as a "VP"of my fathers company. The title means nothing and all I do is get other people to do my work. Though I grew up quite wealthy, I still recognize moneys worth and thus don't spend it like a retarded faggot.
yeh sort of, I was close with her but her death didn't really affect me. I spent most of my summers at her beach house with her and she was unable to have children leading to our mother-son type relationship. She was pretty chill, did a lot of prescription drugs though. peace auntie ya crazy bitch.
>be me, /gd/ kind of guy
>do independent freelance shit
>all on basically my own terms
>sill like my job
And in before you all tell me my job isn't lucrative, my wife makes around 8x more than me.
Well one of the main things is, I'm not gay. I just prefer men right now. I like being able to fuck someone attractive that won't attach themselves to me romantically. With the rich gay guys though, despite how rich you already are, they'll be your sugar daddy basically but you can still sleep around. I got a LV bag from one guy just because he felt like I didn't have enough things in my apartment. Lyf is good my man
solution: buy high quality high end brand objects at thrist shops. eazy peazy. i have a black ralph lauren polo perfectly fitted, got it for 2$. i have several whyred clothes which i have gotten for way less than 10$ a piece idk if that counts but still. i have nudie jeans which i've found in a pile of dirt, literally. tailored suit from thailand which didnt cost me more than 120$. and a relative who makes gold jewelery for a living so i get that for free as well. play smart live smart. only thing u can't get from a thrift shop is expensive food and drinks, so that's what i spend on instead.
I 'm calling a warehouse and asking for trousers. They said they 'd check and call me back, but so far I had to call them 4 times. In about ten minutes the warehouse is closing, should I expect a call?
please friend, I'm about the least stingy you could be. I always treat my friends to dinner at nice places and family receives handsome gifts around special times such as their birthday or holidays. I don't assume you know much about this kind of things because my experiences are less common due to the lower amount of people towards the top of the socioeconomic classes and by the way you seem to envy or despise people wealthier than you, I'd just as soon assume you're less than what is considered rich.
>being this poor
I didn't even want to resort to petty insults but you're more than likely extremely trashy and I wouldn't associate with you if you paid me and since I'm such a greedy fuck that says a lot.
does it hurt?
im kinda poor and want to find gay sugar daddies desu. im also not gay, but I do find guys attractive (well, I find attractive ones attractive) and I made out with a guy once.
idk if i could handle being a bottom, does it feel good at all for you? i like women so much better but the idea of fucking someone attractive without romantic attachment is nice. especially cuz last girl I was banging got real feelsy real quick like naaaah
i feel like id have to be a bottom to get a sugar daddy tho. and multiple people have told me I would make a fantastic twink
>Parents died and left me a house in London so no rent
>Earn £30k a year underwriting insurance in the city
>Never spend more than £300 on a piece
About £800 a month to spend on clothes, travel, drugs and escorts. Living the dream
lol there are loads of old bottom guys who want younger tops, and many of them will pay
you gotta be into fat ugly old guys though they're a disgusting sort and usually, if theyre paying, much older (45-55+)
enjoy fucking nasty stanky ass bu at least no romance ay
id say im pretty cute and most people would agree, 8/10 seems to be the general consensus. ive got a small, skinny/sort of defined physique too
is this true Z? if Im going after gay sugar daddies will they all be fat old and ugly?
no, sometimes it happens like that. Although in some circles it happens like that I know a lot of really fit guys who do that kind of thing. They tend to keep their health up as they get older, it's usually either or, no middle grounds really.
I envy your career but also feel kind of bad for how lonely that sounds although I'm currently neet and still lonely.
Tfw somewhat similar position but just now learning money's worth
I would probably enjoy having a girl be romantically involved with me as long as I was genuinely attracted to her. Talking hottt. But going gay to avoid that when you could find hookup buddies or prostitutes is pretty possum shit tier.
I think you might have misunderstood, I'm not literally a prostitute. I just have sex with a lot of rich people and every once in a while a guy will treat me to some expensive shit. I just don't want to be locked down in an actual relationship.
I know you're not a prostitute but you could find female prostitutes to do the same thing. Or pick up randoms at a bar. Until you burn out on the playboy lifestyle atleast. You're probably gay man.
>you're probably gay man
This is someone who fucks men and women.
You're not suggesting that "you're probably straight man"
Just consider how you're weighting the aspects of his sexuality
Those people are probably trashy and I only really fuck people in higher socioeconomic classes due to the less amount of STI's and the fact that I tend to associate with more wealthy people. I'll fuck an attractive broad and I'll fuck a cute guy. Just because I feel like my sexuality can vary every once in a while.
just to clarify a bit, I don't really think I have a defined sexuality, I like sex and I like attractive people. The money part of it only comes into factor seeing as I meet most of these people at parties held by higher-class people. It sounds pretentious as hell but it's kinda just how shit goes.
this is a thread about money and how you finance fashion. I don't care about your posts man, I think a few people who asked me questions were interested so you can fuck off
