Buying clothes

Post by CJ+ @ Wed Sep 07, 2016 7:58 pm

I don't buy clothes very often. Perhaps a couple of pairs of jeans and trousers per year, if that, as and when they wear out. A new work shirt every couple of months, again as the oldest one finally falls apart.

You? Are you a clothing jackdaw, unable to resist the temptations of Primark? Or are you like one of them toffs off the telly, wearing a tweed jacket that your grandpapa was wearing when he buggered the head gardener that time?

I like clothes and buy in flurries. I would love to build a wardrobe full of just right clothes that would exempt me from any further temptation, but sadly that hasn't seemed to work so far.

I also tend to accidentally buy lots of similar items: I like a tan chino, and have several almost identical pairs because each time I go out looking for some new trousers I find my eye drawn to the same things that I've always liked, over and over again.

Not just chinos either, all sorts of things. Polo shirts. Cable knit pullovers. Shawl cardigans. Boots. All the things I like.

I'm not especially led by trends though, thank goodness, so I plough my own determined furrow through the shops and internet.

That reminds me of the time you were somehow convinced to remove your trousers, photograph them and post the photo on here, good times.

I hate buying clothes and buy as much as I possibly can online. Every few months I buy a load of stuff, try it on and send back the stuff I don't want. I probably also buy a lot of similar stuff and sometimes forget that I already have 25 black tops.

Not sure if I could say I follow any particular fashion - I buy stuff I like which suits me but I do like nice and slightly unusual clothes which aren't the bog standard Top Shop/Next/etc.

I can easily go for a couple of months without buying then go feral and buy ten things in a week. I would hate to be trendy though. I'm 40 FFS

What the fcuk are you doing to them to make them fall apart so quickly? I'd have guessed "welding without overalls" but you drive a desk. And it's a shit guess anyway because even my shirts with welding burns in them have been like that for years and haven't fallen apart.

I occasionally (once, maybe twice a year) buy myself a new t-shirt. Or the GF will come back from a shopping trip and say "I bought you this/these for that thing we're going to." Other than that, I have more clothes than I need.

I have more than one work shirt, you know.

Probably a couple of times a year. I properly hate clothes shopping.

This, but when all the rest of the men are in skirts, no one will notice.

My cousin is a clothes addict, all expensive brands and a least once every other month has a clear out of stuff he won't/doesn't wear.

I arrive home from work and often find a bin bag of them, some still with tags on.

I'm not talking crap either, got a nice aquascutum polo and two lacoste shirts last bin load that had never been worn! There's some shite that I take to the charity shop after, but generally, I shop before a holiday or whilst on holiday, so once or tice a year.

Fashion not my strong point. Spend all day in shirt and trousers, so tend to live in shorts, hoodie and flips year round out of work. If it's cold, I wear a bobble hat.
