Quoted for juxtaposition. Theoretically, if you have 30 pairs of dress pants, you probably don't need a versatile pair of pants - unless the other 30 are all go to hell colours.
I am in also need of a versatile pair of blue wool dress pants, but I want something somewhere between a navy and royal blue with a mohair blend - I find standard navy too boring and too close to black for me.
Fortunately for my commitment to this club, those won't be available until the Spring/Summer collection hits stores around March (I'm told stores have extra delays in getting merchandise this year due to storms in Europe.) On several occasions I've tried to pickup these pants on B&S, and every single time they turned out to be much darker in person than in the pics, so I've learned my lesson about buying local - a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

Is cologne even on the no-no list for the NPC club? I thought it was clothing and accessories. I can see Creed being something SF'ers lust after, but I wouldn't have thought it would be on the list.
Also, even though I've never been to America, isn't wal-greens like a pharmacy chain, I'm surprised they would carry Creed cologne, I always thought that was the most expensive and exclusive cologne out there.

Impressive. The only austerity I handle well are austerity brogues
