That is some serious commitment. Wow.

Indeed. I bought 2 pairs of Lobbs while on UK trip this year and I shit everytime I put them on. SF group think can be dangerous if you let it go out of bounds, I spent thousands during the Woodbury Commons RL opening sales to which I scored some great deals but it was silly in hindsight.

Setting a budget and trying to stick with it really helps me not overspend.

I feel really shitty every time I check mint out and see that I've overspent. There's always going to be deals to had every month, but it really requires discipline, especially when everyone else is going gaga over it.

Also have to admit that there's plenty to learn from on the threads, what with all the "man I know I really shouldn't be doing this but I couldn't pass up on the [insert $800 boots here]."

Yeah he's filed for bankruptcy and his business is in liquidation - his credit is so bad now that he can't get a mortgage if he ever wants to.

I know another guy who made over $9000 a month and has been working for 3 years now. And is still paying off his credit card with no savings. All he buys is jawnz and more jawnz and spending on weekends.

He owns the most jawnz with a bunch of a super balla sneakers that are in mint condition because he rarely wears em since he is in suits most of the time (banker) and further to that his shoe collection is out of control - mainly bought cordovan shoes on sale ($500-600 a piece). Not to mention that his wife left him as a result of him not having as much time to spend with her, and him copping jawnz instead of spending it on her. Lucky for him that he has no kids.

It's one of those things that you think are innocent but Jawnz can really ruin your life if you're not careful. I've seen it happen so many times before.

Maybe some Haggar diffusion lines.

I had to Google this jawnz thing. It's a horrible word and, given the evidence posted, leads to downfall of a person's life. Clearly there is some correlation between it and ending in complete fail so I think that SF should just stop using it.

Don't even care if you're trolling. Reading that made me laugh out loud. Well done.

What are Jawnz? Is it short for ToJ?
post #4467 of 5770
if you must ask, then you don't deserve to know. in fact you're probably a victim given your signature of B&S items.
