When I worked retail in the city I loved SALE WEEK! back when there was only 1 or 2 sales a year. Because on my way to work I'd see my favorite designers put their signs up (they were never advertised in advance) and could get in early to get sample pieces and seconds. Pretty much everything I've ever purchased ON SALE I've regretted and not worn much before reselling because as mentioned above it wasn't THE PIECE. I figure if I didn't love it enough to buy it at full price, I don't need it.
After I stopped working in the retail fashion machine, and stopped doing WAYWT I pretty much stopped shopping. I've got rules now that I first had to stop me retail therapy shopping.
1. only 5 new garments per year
2. I need to be able to meet the maker if I wanted to, keeps me supporting local or flying to LA to go to Mr Freedom
Excludes socks, undies and exercise clothes, although most of my cycling clothes fit the rules.
Still love a bargain at an op shop, the worn once then sold or donated but the shop didn't know that label kind of find.
Out of my 3 wardrobes and numerous storage boxes of clothes, I pretty much wear my Byborre baggy pants, one pair of jeans, the same 8 t-shirts on rotation, Mr Freedom denim jacket and workshop denim jacket. Every now and then I'll wear a dress to work and everyone freaks out.
I get my dopamine kick from going plant shopping now and convincing Steve to let me dig up more lawn for more garden.
I tried searching around and haven't found much or anything. Maybe that's a bad sign?
Anyone have a pair or any experience with the 25oz samurai jeans?
Specifically the S511XX25oz-YY "Kirinji" 25oz Slim Tapered?
I'm very much thinking of getting a pair, but never had something so heavy, and two places I see selling them online in the US have slightly diff measurements. Either way it seems that you'd need to size up quite a bit?
My 33 Benzak x Samurai's have very similar measurements toa 36 in the 25oz single wash.
