The store only had one left in Tokyo Slim size 16.

There was a real sense of urgency. Who knows when they'd get a restock?

I just can't settle for any old menswearhouse rag.

...and they don't have it available from their online store (just checked). Well fuck. 

 

Can't expunge it, but I will begrudgingly admit that it is a good purchase and will allow the record to demonstrate that it was so.

 

How are their slim shirts, by the way? I get most of mine made, but they really can't do a proper OCBD here.

I would've granted leniency based on the shoppage alone. That's good work, jrd.

You have no idea how badly I wanted to. It was tough not to, but I feared that by making an exception which is a clear (though justified) violation of the rules, I'd eventually undermine the NPC.

Understood. I was mostly making a funny, though that is very good shoppage. The tie was a nice touch.

Back on the temptations topic, I'm really not liking that all the sales are hitting right now. It's not like it would matter, since they're already sold out of everything in my size that I would want. I'm just not liking it very much.

Few more days...sales may still be going on. Going to use the grace period to buy a suit from Howard Yount, then I think I'll be done for the summer (July and August) before maybe picking something else up in September.

Nothing in my size left already, at least nothing that I'd want to buy. I've got some alterations I want to make still, and might pick up some fabric for a casual suit or sport coat. Not sure, but I doubt I'll be doing anything big in the wardrobe department this grace period.

It's the 28th here, but you guys still have a few more hours yet. Still, congratulations on going a month.

 

My non-impulse (been eying this since the start of NPC) purchase:

 

(suit from Howard Yount)

 

 

The new thread is up. I encourage all of y'all...especially those who gave in to temptation this time around, to sign up. Remember, you've got 5 days to purchase. Make use of them, but make use of them wisely.

Alright.. as long as we're allowed to go to the tailor to adjust clothing, I think I can try this again.

 

BUT.. what if an MTO of mine comes in? I do have 3 lined up for any time now. What are the rules on that? One should definitely be end of July.

You can go to the tailoring to adjust clothing during the grace period.

 

If you've actually commissioned the MTO and made a down payment, I think that falls under the same rule as the tailoring bills (bills incurred before the start of the NPC can be paid off during NPC).

Are we allowed to buy yet? I really want to put my order in for a MTM charcoal suit, which will require a deposit.

Failed miserably this month.

 

Commissioned two MTOs and ordered two shirts. 

 

It's hard to let a good MTO go though. But including my MTOs, I now have 9 shoes. I think I can call my shoe collection well rounded for now.

Buy away. You'll also be allowed to pay it off during the month, as the deposit and commission, occuring during the grace period, is considered the point of purchase (ideally to be avoided, but I understand the necessity). How long you been looking getting that suit?

Chet, we'll miss you July. Hopefully we'll see you in August.

I've been considering it for a while now. It was on my wardrobe plan list that I posted a few pages back. It is a hole in my wardrobe: I have a few lighter grays, but no charcoal that fits well.
