I understand that, and don't get me wrong, I think it is very wise advice - I really hope I won't hold true to that meme. The problem is that if I start saving right now, I'll have two options:
a) wear flannel trousers and cashmere jackets when it gets warm, which is not going to be comfortable
b) leave home naked
My last MTM commission was a mistake, I know. A big mistake, which seems to go the way of the "keeps buying things he doesn't like as much as he could" guy. With the money I spent on it I could have bought more than half of that "life-saving" spring/summer wardrobe, and would be saving for bespoke already.
What your advice has made me reconsider is my current tailor. I think that I will stop using him even if I don't fully dislike the next jacket - because I am certain I won't like it as much as I could, either. That should be a step forward.
Yeah, I'm lucky in that my tailor disagreed with me a little but still does my stuff the way I want it to please me.
