    I don't know where that option is, but I found in the bottom of the thread an option, but if I didn't post it was not saved haha.

    Ordered a very badly needed pair of grey fresco trousers from Luxire during the grace period. I plan to return a couple odd jackets from Tyrwhitt that just didn't fit right this month to offset the cost of the Luxire trousers (for my budget, not NPC rules). I anticipate the temptation to buy more Hobers being an issue for me but hope to stay strong.

    It's pretty bad that I have no grey trousers. Well, two pair - a Hugo Boss pair that never fit right and some other Dillards pair that doesn't fit right. Both are windowpane.

    I just don't fancy grey. Plenty of brown though.

    I'm in, though I'd like to request an $100 emergency fund. I might get some things tailored - I've been meaning to forever (winter pants mainly).

    I bought some w+h stuff from gilt to reward myself. Unfortunately I missed the sweatpants but I'll count that as a good thing.

    I'm using this club to hold off on a sport coat I don't need, but will be getting at the end of this month if I still desire.

    TR4012. I've got a $230 credit at KW so it cuts the cost pretty well. The green is, in my opinion, pretty versatile. All shades of brown, most greys, white shirt, blue shirt, many patterns, etc.

    TR7103 on the same image is tempting as well. I don't have any brown sport coats.

    Now, half lined or full lined.. hm.. It is 120 here today.

    This is really hard. Only July 2nd , and I'm finding it very difficult to stick to my guns.

    I'm pretty sure if I had a credit card in my wallet yesterday that I'd already have fallen off the wagon.

    You folks are all still within the grace period, but you've not got long. Jacket, if they are mostly winter trousers, they can probably wait (not an emergency). I won't begrudge you taking them to the tailors on the third though.

    24 more hours to register and get full access to emergency funds.

    Kai, don't make me come over there and kick your ass. Because. Well. I probably couldn't if I tried. And that would embarrass me.

    Archibald, I love Hobers as much as the next man (unless the next man is pinkpanther), but another Hober can definitely wait. Make that your light at the end of the tunnel--go the month without a purchase and you can buy yourself a Hober guilt free.

    Jester, I think I like 7104 the most.

    This is going to be awkward but I need to withdraw... just remembered about that Geller sample sale [​IMG]

    I'll be back next month, but this is too big to pass up

    After a big May and June, seems to be a slim field for July. Summer sales must really be tempting around certain parts. 12 more hours or so for full registration benefits.

    Everyone doing alright?

    I've got enough to buy this month on things not for me. Girlfriends birthday, volleyball trips, just got back from San Diego, etc.

    Doin' alright.

    Doing okay so far. I'm actually liking the accountability and being forced to actually plan purchases ahead of time.
