The end is nigh...
A few more days. Though I may try to go until Christmas.
Alright, everyone ring in one last time.....Did you make it? Confessions?
I want to put all this together in some form of scorecard. Thanks everyone....
I made it through and for additional fun will continue to the end of the year.
In the first couple of days November I bought some Park Aves; I then donated well over their value in clothing. I later purchased shoe cream and and a brush. The brush was given away but I failed to give away the cream.
Other things have also been donated putting my solidly in the negative.
Going to try to go to new years. (but probably won't as I'm in the process of some B&S negotiations)
Bought my first Hickey freeman suit today. I bought a bow tie on thursday for a date i had on friday... aside from that i made it the whole time. I also donated several times the value of the bowtie the day before.
all in all i call it a success...rather than buying lower quality or impulse buys, i bought a much nicer piece than i previously had.
Out. nwot brown cotton Zegna tie. NOBD's recent waywrn post reminded me that I lacked a non-silk solid brown tie.
This is the trick for me, while all of my purchases have been decent. They are somewhat impulsive, I've gotten to the point that I need to be really picky on what goes in to not overlap though.
Aside from the shoe polish kerfuffle - no cheating
Yeah, but that was a sweet kerfuffle.
