However, I'm essentially building a wardrobe from scratch this year and getting up a decent rotation has been very hard on the wallet. All I can say is thank God for Lance and Ian.
Can I stop next year as I've planned? I honestly doubt it, but i'm quite confident that my spending will taper-off once i have a good two-week rotation going.
LOL. This is what I told myself last year. I'm spending less this year, but my tastes just keep getting more expensive...
The good news is that I really do have a good shoe rotation, so I'm exercising some restraint. I passed up a pair of color 8 shell cordovan Alden bluchers for $170 two weeks ago because I have so many more attractive shoes that I would rarely wear the Aldens (they were also significantly creased, as if they had been tried on for several hours).
