    I thought that you netted zero each year because you keep the tags on and return everything before the expiration of the return periods?

    I'd say roughly $8,000 a year.

    But I do justify my purchases when I sell things. Although this is probably not financially smart for saving. I'm sure I'm not the only one that does this!

    I think I spent about ~45k-50k in the last 2 years. But going forward for the next 5 years, I don't anticipate me spending much more than ~1k/year. I'm lazy when it comes to going to my tailor, I mean he's only 7-8 miles away, but to get there I have to drive down this annoying 2 lane congested street that ends up taking 20-40 minutes each way.

    I also have no mortgage or kids, so that helps

    I don't know exactly. Definitely 5 figures.

    I actually make a profit; the Marroquian steals the merch then returns it a month later. Genius I tell you!

    I'm actually wearing an Illuminati ballcap (world bank+european union+bird flu campaign logos), EG flannel, some Uniqlo jeans and beatup stan smiths so spending money on clothes is actually pointless (true story).

    Can you prod him to release the average numbers? I've been eagerly awaiting the results of his data collection for months now. I feel like I've been led on. Blue balling it here. Come on Reev, stop being such a tease!

    I may have just slightly shit my pants. I'd be lucky to MAKE 45-50k a year...

    There's never been a better time to buy blue spectator double monks with contrast stitching.

    Are they 75% off? I don't need, or want them, but if I can get a deal... you know the routine.

    could it be that there's never been a better time because there's never been a GOOD time?

    Before this site, it was hardly anything, b/c my wardrobe was mostly jeans and tees.

    Now, I upgrade largely through thrifting, trades, and ebay. In total, probably about $1K during 2011 for several suits, bunch of new shirts, new shoes, socks, ties, etc. Obviously not thrifting socks and the like, but you get the gist.
