Am I an idiot? I found another one of the same style shirt but real mccoys for cheap and bought it. Now I have two ivory shirts that looks almost identical. The new one fits but I just had a thought; I could have just added some gussets on the armpits/chest area of the warehouse one to give me more space and removed some of the length to get material to match.

Japanese used stores do not take any returns. Should I add gussets, and do some indigo shibori dye on the warehouse shirt at a local workshop?

Not an idiot, I would buy the same Merz or Real McCoys loopwheeled tees 35 times if I had the money. Nothing wrong with liking something and having more it, you don't wear it out as fast. That said, the indigo and gussets idea sounds kinda dope tbh

My two remaining (planned) purchases of the year are the Rolling Dub Trio Caspers and a Real McCoy's J-24 with mouton collar. However, I'm weighing that against the heroic amount of funds I've spent on jawnz in the past year, upcoming travel and the fact that I'm moving end of year. I own Blundstones and have a pair of black Savas zip boots arriving soon, but of course neither of those are the Casper. I have a J-100 and A-2, but of course neither of those have a padded lining and mouton collar. Also part of me still wants a grizzly. And there's the reality that the more you own, the less you wear each of the things you own.

Help me decide.

Wait, do not cop so quick. Enjoy what ya got, but who am I kidding ya gonna buy it anyway. Im done buying clothing for this year. Gonna focus on my gardening, music, and cooking hobbies. I find that maybe its a good idea to find a new hobby to spend all that cash burning a hole in your wallet.

Nothing wrong with owning a lot and wearing it less, but when things stop getting worn at all, it is a bit sad. I really enjoy everything I got and when I head back to the US some day I might end up selling a lot of stuff and getting rid of things.

But they're so pretty
indeed they are, but sometimes that's not a sufficient reason to kop!

n.b. while trying to convince you I might be trying to convince myself, there's this Junya cardigan on SSENSE which I have really like, and now it is on sale as well, but I am holding out because I have too many cardigans!
