    I've finished 200 push ups.

    Did a hundred and I'll try to do a hundred tomorrow morning before work (more likely to get to 60 though)

    I think it's to late to sign up, right?

    I mainly use weights and push ups are way tougher than I remember. I felt like I was going to die after 35.

    Betel, you can (and should) sign up, but you won't have access to the emergency fund of 100 dollars (used for emergency repairs).

    This is harder than I thought it would be. I totally forgot that we pay our year end bonuses in May.

    Just plan carefully what you'll buy during the last days of May. It'll ensure you don't make too many foolish purchases.

    Spectacular over here. Nothing purchased and a lot donated already. Many more donations to come yet. Less is more. Hope everyone else is holding up.

    I sold my Ervell sweater. WOO. I parted with something from a designer I love because I wasn't wearing it enough and already had it in other colors. Even though I know it's a small step, it feels like a big step.

    Nicely done, zzzzap

    My own report.
    - Very tempted today to pick up a tie from Mountain and Sackett. Resisted.

    - A linen jacket being made for me has encountered more problems (paid for in full before the start of April NPC). They offered to restart from scratch, which I accepted. They then found out they didn't have enough of the same material, but were getting some new fabric in tomorrow. I go and see the fabric options on Monday; my fear is that the fabric I end up liking will be more expensive than the one I initially chose. If this is the case, I'll hold off on making the selection until the 28th and post pictures of the various options and prices in this thread so that you guys can help me make a wise and unrushed decision.

    - Putting together a menswear care package for a friend in need of some ties and pocket squares.


    In it are :
    3 Thomas Pink ties
    2 Brooks Brothers ties
    1 Marinella pocket square (olive and burgundy)
    1 linen pocket square
    and I'm thinking of picking up another pocket square for him with cream and blue.

    I slipped and bought a belt ($75). I've lost some weight recently, and my pants kept falling down today. I'm on the tightest hole of my only brown belt, so it wasn't helping. I ended up getting one at BB while the friends and family sale was still going on. I don't suppose this qualifies for the emergency fund?

    Why not take your belts to a shoe repair shop and have them shortened? Easy to do and only costs a few bucks. IMO that would
    be easier to justify the emergency funds for.

    Congrats by the way on the weight loss. I've been losing weight recently and know the frustration of nothing fitting well all of a sudden. I can't wait to stabilize in a couple months so I can replace/alter stuff.

    Beatlegeuse I cannot truthfully say that you don't need these. I don't drool easy. They are gorgeous. The question really is, can you wait until the end of May to purchase them?
