    I bought some cloth from Andrew before reading this thread. But I'll start today, and see how long I can last.

    I went on an Orvis frenzy over the weekend, so I should be in, but may just use it as an excuse not to be in.

    What time zone are you in? [​IMG]

    GMT+8 (Hong Kong)

    But the spring stuff is in the shops now. [​IMG]

    Nevermind that, I have to deal with "Valentines Reciprocity". Does it count if the purchases arent for ourselves?

    Either way, I'm out. You had me on Sunday.

    I'm in. But I'll be in Palo Alto/SF over the next few days and things might happen. Money expenditure things.

    Unless what happens in SF stays in SF.

    What stores would you be visiting if you were to possibly browse certain things and possibly maybe consider their purchase?

    [re: shirt order] Where from?

    Rayner & Sturges via Sartorial Executive. Good price, and will travel to measure/fit you. Got my second shirt from them yesterday and am now happy with the pattern. Wore it today (pic in WAYWN).

    No. Haven't looked in the past couple of weeks. Might have a look in the shops this weekend and see if I can break any of the guys signing up to this thread. [​IMG]



    Talking of which, if my shirt orders don't count and I'm allowed to still sell, then I'll give it a go. Sign me up!

    Though how long I last is another matter! [​IMG]

    Well, if this is anything like quitting smoking, sure, count me in. I've done that tens of times.

    Updated. I'd say that if you bought something until today, it's still OK to join for the rest of the month.

    Let the group know
    (a) what temptation you were able to fight
    (b) if you blew it and what you blew it for

    I don't get this type of thread, especially now. Gotta do my part to help stimulate the economy. May be I don't spend much, but I try to do so often.

    1. Does it stimulate the economy (or anything else) if all I do is troll sales and buy from eBay and the B+S forum?

    2. Where can a guy get a free lunch?

    I'm in for both MC and SW+D-type purchases, but I have little faith in myself, and reserve the right to buy whorez/a horse/a house.

    Attention club members: don't listen to those who try to test your will or minimize your efforts. Stay strong.

    It is no surprise that a Frenchman is behind this call for fiscal responsibility.
    Does it mean you're in?
