    Two and a half days left..... And still holding strong. Last night I used saphir renovatuer (sp?) and cream polish on a pair of vintage Florsheim longwings.

    Full disclosure: I have a $20 birthday coupon from Brooks Brothers that is good for this month only. I plan to pick up a pair of socks or maybe a watchband. I believe that is acceptable as per our rules?

    I actually survived, although I do need to use the emergency fund for some alterations and dry-cleaning (£14.45). I have been polishing my shoes and brushing down my clothes with a lint brush.

    It was a combination of my language partner occupying me for Friday night through to Saturday evening (no time to get to Harvie & Hudson and Drakes), as well as the aforementioned stores both being closed on Sunday.

    If you are going to fail, fail epically. As a friend once said to me when I had a Nicole Fahri jacket, with my iPhone and several transport cards (Oyster, Octopus and Limited Edition Suica), and around 500rmb stolen from a night-club in China whilst stupidly stupidly drunk, when I stupidly left my jacket on a stool near the exit, when trying and failing miserably pulling a Chinese chick.

    Me too. Shined a couple of pairs of shoes and washed and ironed about a dozen shirts and three pairs of strides. Didn't spend a penny on anything sartorial. Count me out for October MoL, I will enjoy my newly gained liberation and may join you all back in November.

    Free at last!

    Ended the month with nary a black mark on my credit card statement. I may see if I can stretch this into October as I was profligate in August: a suit and shirt from Chan, a pair of formal trousers from Nick Lopez and a grosgrain bow tie.

    I regret to say that I failed. I bought a pair of shoes from Kent Wang. The club still helped me do better than I would have during a typical month.

    I posted earlier this morning in the October thread that I was able to make it through the month.

    Thanks all for the support. It was helpful to have brothers across the world going though the same thing.
