Bless you both.
Well, to rephrase what I meant, while on a computer..
I have 4 shirts, and two are pink. This is for workwear. I do need other shirts. Luxire has my measurements so I love ordering from there. If I'm getting shirts because I need them (which I do), it might as well be linen-cotton mixes. Interview on Friday but it's just a formality as two of the four people interviewing me gave a recommendation for me. Two weeks, I get a position there hopefully. Which is the delivery time for Luxire. I'll still be late to the show but I'll have shirts worth appreciating if I ordered sooner than later.
If I don't get swatches, I'll have to wait two weeks after NPC. Then two or more weeks after that to get the shirts. By then my potential coworkers will have been wondering why this guy wears so much pink and blue with no patterns (they may not really care but I will, which is the point of StyleForum).
If it makes you feel better Clag, I just made a WantsAndNeeds xls that has $5000 worth of clothing on it. It's fun to look at it over and over and see what I really need, what I really want, and what I don't need at all, then cut it down.
Edit: I haven't mentioned at all that I only have like 4 pairs of pants. Brown houndstooth, Green that needs to be tailored, brown pinstripe and tan 4 seasons. These will work but 2-3 extra pairs for variety (grey, plain brown, khaki linen) rounds out the wardrobe nicely. That's why all those swatches are there.
Edit v Conundrum: Clag.. What if I don't wear these linens and I wear my heavy shirts and pants, then lose so much weight from the sweat, I need a new belt to hold my trousers up? Is this not a more viable option?! :-) (Kidding)
