NO PURCHASE Club for MAY 2011 - Page 4

post #46 of 74
I'm glad I didn't sign up, considering how I bought a couple of pairs of shoes, a new belt, new straps for my new Seiko OM and Seagull 1963, and some completely unnecessary ties -- all just this weekend.

Madras long tie and some pieces from the Cordial Churchman are calling… Must. Remain. Strong.

Lufty that's cruel. be strong...but if you weaken, the dog house has just been freshly cleaned.

To all,
Sorry I haven't got the list up yet. My mother just passed away and everything is upside-down here.
Will get list up soon as I can.

Lint - Sorry about your loss. As an update: Part B 1) Done! 2) Done - hemmed / repaired some blazers 3) Done! Donated some shoes, shirts, sweaters, pants, and a jacket. Part C As stated before - I hung up my Tweed for the month. Part D I cracked Bought a YSL suit It was too good to pass up. I was thinking of buying some pocket squares for a wedding I'm attending next week, but now I'm not sure anymore. BAH!

I failed as well -- today's mail brought a new pair of loafers.

MoL - very sorry to hear about your loss, I hope you are doing well.

Even though I already sinned and bought 4 shirts earlier in the month, I just sold 2 pairs of Mabitex on the B/S to recoup most of my money!

Part A
So far, so good. To be truthful, I don't even feel the urge to buy anything clothing related. I'll probably be joining June's NPC as well.

Part B
I have done spring cleaning, repair and I'm going through everything with an eye to reducing the wardrobe. Did sports jackets and tomorrow it's time to weed out the pants.

Part C
I have a coveted shirt that I have not touched this month.

Part D
No infidelities. It's fecking clothes man, if you can't go a month without buying something you're a chick.

Confession: I had to use my emergency fund for some new running shoes - my old ones are cactus and not doing any exercise (or barefoot exercise) for a month in winter wasn't a healthy option. I am proud I managed to get a pair for <$100 so my NPC vows are in tact.

Have had an "autumn clean" and haven't worn my new cashmere sweater purchased in April. Also got a couple of suits drycleaned and buttons re-attached to jackets etc.

This has been easy so far - keep strong brothers.

I cracked Again I had intentions of buying a pocket square for an upcoming wedding, which i did but the store had a 30% off sale, so I grabbed a new (unnecessary) dress shirt. bah!

Bought some more stuff...I really went off the deep end in May. Got a Zegna SC off eBay, some Epaulet trousers, and a couple more shirts. On the plus side I did sell some more pants on the B/S, and I have a stack of old clothes to bring to Goodwill. I'm definitely going to do better in June after splurging this month.
