Haha. I wish I can. But I like her happy.
Aw~ newly weds.
I kid, it's good.
I'm so lucky I think for SF standards, that my partner enjoys menswear stuff, so we ogle at the same sort of stuff. We already share ties, pocketsquares, cufflinks, and tiebars, but if I could easily share shoes and just about everything else with them. Alas, not to be.
No h8, but I can think of about 3 people, maybe 4, that really look tops, and who are solely bargain shoppers. It takes a lot of skill and serious dedication, and living in the right place and knowing where to look. Its no easy game.
99.99999% of people are far better off by be being patient and taking 5 times the amount of time, by spending a little more on each item, over a greater period of time, and getting more specific, good quality, items.
Even for someone relatively new to this, I've spent quite a bit of time/money on clothes, and have to agree with this sentiment. I have bought things that are on their own reasonable buys, but because I have better things that I like more, don't really wear anymore.
I've been through quite a bit in my life and consider myself lucky to be alive...so I just buy clothes like I'm gonna die tomorrow.
I mean I actually have a mental illness that makes me spend money frivolously so in practice I also just buy whatever most of the time. All I can do is make the most of it by developing better taste.
Word to big bird, brother man.
I've been through very little in my life but I do the same thing.
Do your thing RTC. I'm sure the great thrifters didn't start out with the greatest finds. Also, I'm sure people who post great fits now purchased many things at full price and have now realized they were mistakes.
it's a requirement on the StyFo member app isn't it?
No...its more complicated.
The actual requirement is to always look amazing...which in turn requires frequent impulsive spending with no regard for common sense despite all of the signs that it could be a very destructive habit.
I dont know how Murl did it but you are one brave and patriotic dude. It has become somewhat cliche-ish but thank you and to others like yourself for putting their lives on the line for this great nation and its people.
Again, sorry to be the dick, but I cannot, in good conscience, encourage furthering mediocrity. And while your second sentence is true, Id bet thrifters realize equal if not more mistakes, and while they may be less costly dollar wise, they are more costly time wise, regarding getting to ones peak. Imo.
How so? Not sure how that follows.
Separate names with a comma.
