me too. It's been a while since I've had a non-purchase regret...I can't remember what the item was, but I do remember my gf getting tired of hearing me whine about it.

A crucifix lighter. You pulled down one arm of the crucifix and fire came out of jesus' head. It was awesome.

I usually just let things go, but I saw an EG boiled wool engineer jacket in B&S here before anyone else and passed it over because it wasn't the Norfolk or the Bedford. Seemed really dumb, in retrospect.

Well, this week I kinda regret not pulling the trigger on this hoodie. I haven't seen it IRL so it may not be all that, but if the fit is right, I think it would be great. It just seems so lush, and the color pairs nicely with dark denim. Also, this belt caught my attention, but my size was sold before I clicked on it so it doesn't really count.

Not buying the heavily-discounted RRDS up on shopjake because I figured I "had enough jeans for now"...d'oh.

Also, last time I was in Havana kids were walking around with University of Havana tshirts that looked amazing but after talking with several people, the university bookstore was either closed or being remodeled. I still have dreams about that shirt.

I regret not getting a "Bulldog Coffee Shop" tee when I was in Amsterdam. I got shit for everybody else on that trip, but I got nothing but half-memories.

I regret not picking up the Yoko Devereaux cashmere hooded sportsjacket from FW04. I will most likely regret not picking up the Nom de Guerre M65 from this year as well. Both regrets will be attributed to insufficient funds. Sigh, story of my life.

A bunch of you guys should regret not having picked up one of the Engineered Garments for Styleforum belts, either in the blue or henna color. I think that the Blue is cooler and more unique, but the henna is more beautiful. Maybe I regret not picking up both for myself...

You! It was you! You got the EG jacket I passed up! On the altar of god, I pledge undying hostility.
