    True. But different AE sales has mostly different models on sale. The lowest I paid for seconds are $130 during January sale . These sales are just teasers. Makes you want to buy more shoes……

    June 29th is the party and we fly out June 28th. I guess I could always pick up a tie over lunch on the 28th. Still looking for a minty/lighter green tie but it is hard for me to pull the trigger on clothing. Usually takes the fiancee saying I need it before I purchase something otherwise it will sit in my basket on that website until my next visit.

    I might have a Canali that would fit the bill for you

    More as in I'll send you pictures, you tell me if you like it, and then it shows up at your door. No purchasing required [​IMG]

    I have a mint green floral on white Thomas Pink lying around somewhere. Let me find pictures and post 'em. I've worn it once, to a wedding. If I can track it down, if you want it, its yours.

    Would I be approved to buy a white linen PS for the Friday Challenge? I may not ge to it, but I can try. I wouldn't win, either. But it'd be fun finally posting an actual fit.

    1/3 of the way through the month. Everybody hanging in there?

    I've been working on my wardrobe master plan during NPC, like the one Betelgeuse made last month, and am finding it helpful. My hope is that having a long-term plan will make it easier to avoid impulse purchases and be in control. I'd recommend that all NPC members consider writing a plan if they haven't already.

    I just ate shrimp, which I'm allergic to (just bad hives) and am on the way to the hospital to get a shot of some sort.

    Oh, how am I doing as far as purchasing? Still in the clear.

    The plan is a good idea. My top items right now:
    -Charcoal suit (unfortunately I don't own one. I have a few mid gray)
    -Mid to dark brown balmoral. I have an AE 5th Ave in this color, but I need 1 more pair. I have a few light and mid brown shoes, but I think I need one more dark brown pair.
    -Mid gray flannel suit (for fall/winter)
    -Brown herringbone tweed sport coat (also for fall/winter)

    I keep eyeing ties but have not purchased. My current fixation is on reallocating my fiancee and my retirement funds. While are currently all over the place, but are moving most to one brokerage other than our job 401k plans. Once we get that done then the process of selecting everything is in play. Saving money is harder than spending it ;)

    Can you link me to that?

    It's easy for me to get through this month since I've got stuff coming..
    Arrived:
    two pocket squares
    blazer
    chinos
    shoe trees

    Arriving:
    socks
    linen sports coat
    5 shirts


    I guess I was busy last month. It is hard not to spend more since I have a Cali trip in July that I feel unprepared for. I need a weekend bag that my mom can get discounted for me from BR (oh noes 100% polyester!) from $225 to $125.
