Give me your flats, your heels, your wide-calfed boots. And jeans. Jeans, please.

I am a lady on a quest to never shop for clothes or shoes again. Help me!

So, I read this question
on men's shoes that will outlive their owner and this comment
on looking like a rich lady by buying a simple but long-lasting wardrobe.
Also, I never, ever, ever
want to buy a pair of pointy black leather heels ever again
. Ditto skinny jeans, black tee-shirts, and purses. I don't mind buying, like, trendy crap every once in a while but if I never need another cable-knit sweater it will be too soon. I am willing to pay for this privilege (on eBay) since the things will last forever so I can do it over a long time! Yay!
So, what are the brands in women's clothes and shoes that will outlive me? What are the brands that are expensive but not well-made and thus not worth paying a premium for?
I'm looking at Land's End Canvas
for tee-shirts (fits my style of "hipster-preppy archaeologist"), but I suspect I have to think much BIGGER than that? (Do I? I would love to buy forever-lived 10 dollar tee-shirts).
