10 Things Men Are Willing To Spend Extra Money on for Better Quality

In a fast-paced world with plenty of products on offer by marketplaces, superior quality, durability, and functionality have become unnegotiable features when we go shopping. Men, in particular, are known for their willingness to spend extra bucks on high-quality items that enhance lifestyle and reflect a thoughtful personality.

A popular online forum asks men what things they would happily splash the cash and these are their interesting picks.

1. Good Food

Funny as it may sound, many upvotes trail this choice of what quality thing men should unbuckle their wallets for. In the words of one man, “Good food is cheap medicine,” his father would say. A second user is grateful for the “smart” advice and promises to remember the quote onwards.

2. Boots

Someone explains that cheap boots come with regrets, especially when you wear them for long hours. Another adds that when buying boots, spend extra on boots that prioritize functionality and comfort over looks.

3. Electronics

One man explains that the homes and offices are filled with them; we also move around with phones and laptops. He adds that spending extra bucks on the best quality electronics offers peace of mind. Another man entirely agrees about paying more for good electronics, as the cheap ones don’t last.

4. Coats

One fashionista explains that a good coat could last a decade, hammering on the need to buy quality over low-priced. Another user replies, “A good coat is extremely worthwhile; I know people who have owned the same Barbour jacket for decades.”

The secret of good coats is sometimes in the price. Good cotton, for example, may cost a pretty penny.

5. Mattress

A man’s day depends on a good night right rest, one man opines, explaining the importance of a good mattress. Buttressing his claim, a second user cheekily asks men to splash the cash on anything “that goes in between them and the ground.”

6. Cookware

Good food needs to be cooked in something, which is why one man thinks dependable pots, utensils, and skillets are worthy of a solid investment. A second commenter advises thread participants to seek cast iron cookware because they last forever if properly maintained.

7. Underwear

It needs to be comfortable in there, a first user suggests. He feels men should spend money on innerwear made of top materials that last long and suit the body with a good feel. One man says they would only wear undies in the winter and opt for flannel-insulated jeans in the summer instead because they are “so soft.”

8. Grape Nuts

This is a cheeky response to what men should spend extra cash on, but many other users agree it’s pinpoint accurate. One cereal connoisseur says a blend of grape nut and yogurt is worth a kill, especially when adding a nice filling crunch. Another expresses delight in the mix of grape nuts on ice cream, calling it “delightful.”

9. Video Games

What’s a man without his toys? Video games are worth the extra cash, one explains. He adds that they make up for the most quality of alone time. A second commenter says he balked at the price initially but found out that splashing some extra dollar wad on virtual reality games is good value.

10. Wine

A commenter argues that the older the wine, the tastier and pricier it is, and the quality of wine a man drinks says a lot about his personality. One supporting contributor reminisces on a $60 Portuguese rose that was something special and would be worth the extra dollar spree any time. What would you drop extra duckets on?
