I need a ruling on my violation.
I am not buying anything until next July. With the exception of the linen suit I am having made, but that's already in the works. And I still have a few things waiting for me in the UK when I head over in December that I already bought. But they don't count.
Camp 2 for me as well. I needed some fresh denim.
Out. Saw some AE factory seconds, Park Ave oxblood, that were too good to pass up.
As fas as I am concerned, you did not violate da rulz even though your intention was not as noble as you would have prefered.
I totally, unofficially rule you are technically right, which is the best kind of right.
Alright, lets try again........we are LOCKED DOWN. No spending. Any weaknesses must be reported. Good luck all.
no spending on clothing, but i have found that i have spent the same, if not more on other goods such as bookshelves, paintings and other type things... methinks i have a different issue...
I wound up not buying the undershirts. Rifled through my closet and decided I can make do with white (instead of heather grey) for a month. I'm still in this, baby!
Donated around 400 dollars (their used value, not purchase value) worth of clothes today, definitely much more than I paid for the AE's.
I may not be seeing this club thing through, but it's already stopped me from making a number of purchases, which, I think, is its ultimate intent. I will do what I can to keep those shoes the last thing I purchase at least until the end of the month with the clothes donation set against the violation.
I'm posting a day late but I'm still joining camp 2 for the challenge.
I just donated 2 Aquascutum raincoats; one clay and one navy, several Hugo Boss Black label sport jackets and 6 pair of pants. All clean and mint condition. Someone is going to have a good thrift find. Now going through my shoes to prepare more donations. The shoes will be donated to several different thrift stores on different days because I don't want any one person to be able to buy it all in one shot. Locations will not be divulged.
In theory...what if I donated money to a charity of your choice, and you gave me some clothes? I could donate more than what they'd thrift the clothes for...and technically I wouldn't be buying anything.... .... .... .... ....
.... .... .... .... yeah, probably not.
But just out of curiosity, what size were those HB jackets (fused or not, I still like HB).
Hi Clag. Jackets were 43R. Shoes were 9(UK) 10.5D or 11(44EU) depending on manufacturer. Jackets fused or not I can't remember. It was stuff I wasn't wearing for a few years so just tossed them into a bag after quickly checking pockets. I may put some stuff on the B&S one day soon but still undecided. I still have plenty more HB but too many to list. Some are Loro PIana, others are not.
1/3 of the way there and still going strong.
But I spent a few grand last month, and those orders are still arriving via mail - so really I'm tweaking off last month's high.
