Exhaust all other possibilities before buying new clothes.
Thrift Stores and Consignment stores have great deals on gently used clothes.
eBay has literally millions of articles of clothing.
Garage Sales are even cheaper.
Hand-me-downs are the best. NEVER say no to them. Take them, go through them, take out what you need, pass-on the rest. If you find real nice name-brand clothes that you don't have a need for, sell them on eBay.
In the spring I lost some weight and needed jeans. I bought 8 pair of nice jeans and a few shirts off eBay for under $50. That's about all I have spent on clothes in the past few years, except for running shoes of course.
