I generally have them made, and choose materials and pattern likely to stand the test of time. Alternatively it’s a case by case basis. See it, like it, look properly at the quality. You’ve got some work ahead of you if your ‘tried and true’ isn’t delivering anymore. Sometimes thrift stores in the right areas can give you a good idea of how clothing from various prestige brands really holds up to wear. 

Best coat – Reiss, the coat I have is excellent. I would rather fix it up forever than risk a new one.

Tips – money can buy prestige, it does not guarantee quality (or good working conditions for those who made it). I remember in the aftermath of that awful Bangladesh sweatshop disaster that both expensive and dirt cheap brands were represented in the wares being produced there. Look around.

American Eagle jeans hold up damn well, as do their Aerie bras(take THAT, Victorias Secret!)

I’ve had Payless flats that lasted YEARS, and yes I wore them a lot.

Amazon.com always has good deals on sweaters/cardigans that I will buy 1 in every color, they last years. Just check the reviews! It’s always some nameless brand, but you cant beat the price/variety
