Living out Pate Bateman fantasy?
Halloween is only 2 months away, ok
Went to go suit shopping at the mall (don't want to spend a lot of money, just want something that fits) yesterday...total fail. I didn't fit into brooks brothers kids (lol) but the brooks brothers fitzgerald fit 36s fit me fucking amazing. of course, the ones they had there were way out of my price range. So I tried suits on at jcrew, nordstrom, macys, etc. and all the 36s were too big. god I hate being so small.
I kind of miss buying clothes, I've basically sold off all my nice pieces and the only things I've bought this year are my interview trousers and an obey T shirt that I got rid of when every white geeky hipster kid not only decided that they liked OFWGKTA, but they also wanted to be Tyler and try fuck shit up. Will get job and buy new jeans and mebz some sick boots and knit wear. Should not have sold off all my Tom Ford and purple label knitwear.
Also I just fb stalked magician.

I think I'm done buying clothes in stores and online. Here in LA we have stores like Buffalo Exchange and The Wasteland which are thrift stores that sell higher-end clothing (Wasteland especially). You can pretty much get anything if you're patient enough and a lot of stuff is mint/new. A couple of weeks ago I got a sweet brand new J. Lindenberg shirt for $17. And when you're paying less than $50 for a decent shirt it actually makes sense tailoring the shit out of it. It's even more fun to take a few hours each weekend and drop by these places and see what you can find.
taking a few hours out of precious weekend free time to look for maybe the chance of finding something just ok doesn't sound like fun at all...
Yeah, sure. But how's it different than spending a few hours a week browsing online shops, designer's new lines, stores, etc. I've got a general idea of the kind of pieces I want and either they're 'ok' or better than expected. It's just cheaper option right now while I engage in this as a hobby. When I can drop retail for exactly what I want then sure it's more convenient and faster. Trying to find a good deal on something you want via eBay or B&S is also real time consuming.
This. My weekend time is pretty valuable to me. Might be different if I was still a student or unemployed.
You mean browsing the internet which you can do from anywhere? Or at any time - like while you're eating or watching TV? - that makes all the difference. You don't have to go out of your way to browse B&S or ebay because they're online and you can just multi-task it. If you want to thrift you have to take time out of your day to do it, not to mention the time lost getting to and from there. Also, if you're patient its generally much easier to find good deals on B&S (here and SUFU as well) and ebay. And it might be different where you live - but where I am places like Buffalo exchange are a waste of time. One incredibly rare and lucky time I found a BoO shirt there, but 99% of the time its all crap from UO, BR, etc.
