Buzz Bissinger Spent $600k on Clothes

After seeing these pictures, we wish he worked in the office more often. Friday Night Lights author and Daily Beast contributor Buzz Bissinger took to GQ to admit his shopping addiction. Bissinger takes inventory of his Gucci-filled closet—81 leather jackets, 115 pairs of leather gloves, a $22,500 coat—and concludes that he’s spent $638,412 on clothes in the past three years. It all began when his wife left for Abu Dhabi and Bissinger began “to seek sexual expression in the form of high fashion.” Half a million dollars later, Gucci flew him to Milan to thank him for his loyalty, and Bissinger enrolled in therapy for sex addiction, because “clothing and sex for me have become one.”
