There a number of items that are worth investing as much as you can afford in. A house, a bed and the below 10 items that form the backbone of any wardrobe. By spending that little bit more on a pair of shoes, or a leather jacket, for example, I wholeheartedly believe that you will save money in the long term. It means you'll get better cost per wear per item as better made clothes and shoes last longer. Additionally, with such a classic start to any wardrobe, you're less like to purchase random sale items from Topshop or The Gap. My top 10 this week is therefore an expensive one as I'm suggesting the very best of the best. However, all the items below can be bought cheaper elsewhere, with a sliding scale of quality. These are simply examples of what to buy in an ideal world.
