That's because you're giving all your money to Chan and AE.
Actually, I did the "hat" phase of my wardrobe building before I was even aware of the existence of Chan and barely aware of A-E. Unlike my "suit" phase around the same time, I have never really rued getting rabbit fur hats instead of beaver. With the suits, I should have bought fewer and better. (Wish I'd known about W.W. Chan then, but these fora didn't exist at the time!)
I am rather proud of myself that I have been "shoe sober" for almost 11 months. The only footgear I have purchased was a pair of Chuck Taylors for exercising on my wife's elliptical machine.
Another "Chan Day" is a scant 17 days off. I'll go away somewhat the poorer for that but eagerly awaiting the arrival of a couple of jackets three months later. Will probably make purchases of that sort with considerable less frequency thereafter since I am planning to retire next year and my income will drop appreciably.
