January 2015 Shopping Haul: Menswear

We went and scored some menswear deals at Khols today. Anyone who has ever shopped for a man will tell you how expensive men’s clothes can be. For some reason, the universe has cursed men into $$$ doom.

But, there is hope. There’s something called, “The Clearance Rack.” A few rules my husband and I try to follow:

1. Have an item in mind (if you don’t, at least have a budget in mind) This just simply means that you know what you’re shopping for. Example: Work, party, casual.

2. Buy things only your size (unless you can tailor it cheap)

3. Don’t fall for your weakness (mine are boots). I have many of them, but I don’t always wear them.

4. Know your environment. Sometimes, that really cute coat, might not work in a tropical HOT setting.

5. Head for the clearance rack and pick through EVERYTHING!

We only bought things he needed for work. Typically, the causal clothes  wouldn’t cost so much. But, sometimes dress shirts and belts for work can cost you a pretty penny. Pick out a wide variety of style. Choose from the cut, the color, patterns, and material of the item to create a bigger variety to choose from.
