Money usually spent on work clothes (suits and dress shoes) now being spent on casual stuff for WFH (selvedge jeans and boots).I haven't walked into any clothing stores this year, save for going into Nordstrom to use their bathroom in an emergency. I also haven't even purchased any clothing or shoes this year, asides from a pair of Nikes (though a Camoshita drop from NMWA may change that).
There are pieces I still want (I may pick something up from Uncle Otis, Frances Watson or Lost & Found later in the summer) but I don't feel the need to make a purchase right now, so I haven't felt inclined to walk in if I don't have an intention to buy anything. (It doesn't hurt to minimize the risk to exposure, after all!)
I have allocated some of my clothing spending to other hobbies, but I've also upped my investment contributions with some of the money I'd otherwise spend on clothes. It's as good a time as any for me to do this, with no commute and less money spent on social activities/eating out.
Has anybody else seen their clothes spending drop?
