What Expensive Fashion Item Should Every Guy Buy?

This article is Part 7 of a nine part Series where Man of Many is teaming up with Australia’s biggest instagrammers for fashion advice.

Despite the wealth of affordable options available to Aussie guys, style can still come at a price and spending wisely is the key to success. Many big ticket fashion items like suits, watches or glasses have eye-watering price tags, but splashing out on the right item or accessory will prove a smart investment.

However, picking the right item is only half the battle, as there’s a near limitless number of makes and models for every fashion item under the sun. Chances are you don’t have a bottomless wallet, so making that expensive purchase is not something you want to get wrong.

But there’s some pretty simple things we can do to up our game, which is why we’ve enlisted the help of some of Australia’s biggest men’s style Instagrammers to answer: If they had to spend money on one expensive fashion item or accessory, what would it be and why?
