post #76 of 101
I failed. Took advantage of the 40% off AE and bought a pair of Bayfields for $210.... Hope they fit.

You may have failed but you don't get to quit.
That goes for all of you out there...10 more days to go.

Wow, this month has been bad for a lot of us. Seems more like a what I purchased thread.

Been relatively good so far, work travel has made avoiding new purchases pretty easy but I did drop off 2 pairs of jeans for alterations before the October 7th date and picked up/payed for them after. $36 there.

I failed also. Bought a blazer. Had to though. I have only one winter jacket that currently fits me. Can only leave the house once per week as a result! Might put the others on B&S.

Not one cent spent over here. I am still battling Bronchitis though I have re-sewn many buttons and am repairing a leather strap on a duffel coat. I have discovered that KIWI wax polish makes a nice substitute for Vic's Vapo-Rub. It offers a wonderful high when working on one lung. tounge.gif

How is everyone else holding up?

A cuff button fell off one of my shirts, so I need to replace that to fulfill my repair requirement for the month. smile.gif

Another day, another fail. Bought 3 Zara ties and a Zara jacket from the Australian equivalent of GILT. That was in addition to the 2 R&B ties from last week. Total damage $49. shog[1].gif

On the plus side, I did polish and condition both pairs of AEs. I also purged 2 pairs of crappy old shoes, and have am in the process of putting some pre-SF gear on eBay (mainly SW&D stuff).

Bought a pair of Mr. B's brogue boots last week. shog[1].gif

Other than the undershirts reported earlier, doing fine! I polished all shoes, including my wife's. My mother-in-law replaced buttons on a Gieves & Hawkes sportcoat I have with some buttons I scored from Tender Buttons on 62nd St last summer, originally intending to use on a different coat but never got around to fixing.

4 days to go.
How is everyone holding up? I am still purchase-free over here.

I want to thank the NPC. Yesterday, there was a Groupon for Bonobos - I think it was $55 for $110 of clothing. I was so close to buying it. Now . . . I have never purchased anything from Bonobos. Never even seriously contemplated it. But hey - it was a deal! This is what I do - buy stuff because it's a good deal. So I remembered that I had committed to the NPC and resisted.

So, I'm still holding strong. No way I'm signing up for November, though.

Yeah I discovered that last summer, good deals are actually terrible deals when you just bought something you don't need.

And yes, there should not even be a NPC for November given the sales...

More fails to report. Two more jackets. However in my defense...both were bought from SF'ers-one on B&S and one on Ebay. That's me done now though. Looking forward to signing up for November.
