➲ 2012 SEPTEMBER NO PURCHASE CLUB - Page 9

post #121 of 173
A great theme for avoiding the temptation to buy and to maintain what exists. We often do not wear what we have as it is lost in the wardrobe. More creative maintenance could also mean changing buttons (ordinary to mother of pearl etc), or even stitching the button in a new way. Perhaps women are good at circulating the wardrobe. Thanks for the idea. Lastly, re-engineering clothes to enhance life need not be ruled out.

Thanks.

I placed 3 Bontoni orders during trunk show but didnt pay a dime.

I did need 2 tshirts from BR because I gained a bit of weight and my shirts did not fit and were attacked by a rodent while being pilled up from not wearing them. I think that does count as an emergency as my undershirts are wife beaters and i cant wear those out in public unless i live in Miami.

NPC'ers let me know if i am still eligible or if I fail.

No you may not spent it.
What? WHAT? Oh my. Photos please, because 6 months from now I want you to come back to this thread and ask yourself if it was worth it.
You guys need to toughen up and buckle down here. Seriously, if we were all going to climb Mt Everest together your bodies would clutter up Base camp. Please be strong. We are not even half way yet. No more spending!

I accept the judge's decision!

Still spend free here and can't think of anything I desperately need I the next two weeks.

Thirteen days to go fellas. Come on now!

I think you might be out for placing the Bontoni order. I believe the rule is that you can pick up/pay for orders already placed, but that you cannot place any new orders.

Agreed.

Reporting in, I'm still going strong, but I almost lost. I walked into C&J at the Burlington Arcade, intending to take a look at the Skye 2 boot in cordovan. Unfortunately the shipment was delayed from the factory, but I tried on the original Skye and the pleasant manager almost managed to convince me to put down payment for the Skye 2 boot. I stayed strong and gave them my phone number instead of my credit card. They expected delivery in the beginning of October, so I just might get them once this no purchase month is over.

I'm going strong, although after viewing my Charles Tyrwhitt midnight blue tie in a mirror, I almost wanted to order a midnight blue woven fine rib reppe tie and a green untipped woven wool solid  - both from Drakes.
 

No! I've just noted the beautiful lilac shirts on the Drakes website. Must. Hold. Fast. My credit card has taken a whack this month, from taking out my Chinese language partner to dinner and drinks for weeks and weeks, and then taking out a Taiwanese girl for drinks and dinner the other night.

 

In truth, I'll be fine until October. Then I'll need to purchase those ties, think about finding a dark olive Sports Coat, and a lilac and a lavender shirt.

Good news: September has only 30 days.

(I'm looking forward to October.)

We still have a few members from the sign up period that we have not heard from since. I wonder how those guys are doing?

Surely September prepares you to continue into the October club? smile.gif
