★ 2012 OCTOBER NO PURCHASE CLUB - Page 5

post #61 of 91
I think I have a reasonable chance of completing the challenge in November. In preparation for Nov, I will be ordering these "essentials" by the end of October

-Orage ski jacket icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
-LL Bean duck boots
-C&J Draycott

MoL, will there be a thread for November? Count me in!

Starting November 6th, I will sell you a Kiton tie, only worn once, for 20 dollars.

I mean, I wouldn't. But if I did, would that make me an ass or a great guy?

Don't need any ties, broski. Even a Kiton. Thanks for thinking of me though nod[1].gif

I don't know what came over me. I beg forgiveness. It is just a nice quiet grey jacket, almost forgettable really, but it fits me like a glove and fills a spot in my wardrobe between my duffels and heavy parkas. A substitute for my leather jacket which I am finding a tad heavy. Sort of a Goldilocks Syndrome of just right. I feel bad to let everyone down but I am keeping this jacket smile.gif Remorse? sure...but it will pass.

This club is having the opposite effect on me - Just picked up a pair of Wolverine 1K boots this morning.

I promise to be good for the balance of the month. Either that or I need intervention.

Alright, I'm out. 4x Canali ties (70% off) and 3 J Crew shirts today.. facepalm.gif

 

Maybe I'll have better discipline next month.. *sigh*

More failure. Another Howard Yount tie. But it was on sale (25% off).

 

I'm going to do this seriously in November. Seriously.

About to buy a pair of Alden boots. Not only do I fail this club again, I also fail my pledge of no shoes until 12/26. Although I could technically get out of the Carmina boot preorder and replace it with this boot...

Odd experience. I was reusing the Bay for a good deal on a navy sport coat...oddly enough it is an essential that I don't own. I don't know why, but it just wasn't something I didn't want until I joined SF. I see something I like, I scroll down to the measurements...19 inches shoulder is too big...and whenever I see something over 18 I feel relieved as I know I won't buy it. I'm going to get a navy sport coat by the end of the month, that way I can do November for real.

 

I'm sure it's already been said, but Man of Lint, this really is a fantastic thread.

Failed...I bought some MTM shirts.

What has happened this month fellas? Failures left and right!

I plan to rejoin in November but need a ruling. Took some stuff to the tailor for alterations but he is notoriously slow, might not be finished till November in which case I will be having to pay him in my NPC month. Grounds for disqualification or do I get a hall pass?

See you all in November, I didn't join in october as I got some shoes, two shirts, a belt and a couple of ties. Don't need anything else (

I haven't spent a $ since 8/15. I'm happy.
