Apologising in advance for the inevitable accusations of snobbism, what do people consider the point beyond which buying more attire/accesories/consumer goods/cars constitutes vulgarity?

To take an extreme example, I think most would agree that Imelda Marcos's shoe collection was, not necessarily in the absolute number of shoes, but in the fact that she was married to the head of a poor country, needed to show some restraint etc. As well as the fact that the sheer number of shoes was more that she could possibly wear individually in a year............

So what is more critical in comprising vulgarity, taking as an example having 200 suits in one's wardrobe: the absolute number, the number of suits relative to practically everyone else, or the sheer redundancy of having so many items which largely replicate each other?
