    I know many of us spend a ridiculous amount of money on clothing items...but what are your favorite things that you got for cheap? Mine are:

    chengs plimsols http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urba...Date&navCount=36&navAction=poppushpush&color=
    only 16$, and while the material is sorta cheap theyve been holding up great..and at that price i can always buy another pair


    and hanes plain white tees...3$ cannot be beat, and they fit me pretty well :bowdown:


    also ive heard great things about winos http://www.skateworks.com/store/index.php?cPath=77_84 but id want a pair in all white..so im going to pass on them for now


    whats your favorite cheap stuff?

    h&m layer t's - $6

    even though the fit has gotten looser and the material is lower in quality than they used to be, they're still great

    the ones i bought 3 years ago are thick, never lost color, and have a great fit

    the ones i bought last week are thin, loose, and won't last more than a year :hs:

    they're still staple worthy, though
