You're probably still spending "less" on clothing this way, since you're buying a smaller number of pieces that last a longer time. Fashion retailers need you to replace perfectly usable items because they're 'out of style' after a year or two.

It’s true for some things, if you buy them in the right price range they basically don’t depreciate. I don’t know if it really applies to boots but I’m just hard on my foot ware

Yep.

Took me a long time to learn that. But it's the truth.

Buy one fine Yves St Laurent suit, and it will cost you a bundle, and last you for ever.
