    Good Lord, I love that #8 one. I have to stop looking at it, or I will justify the price.

    I'm in. I had several large purchases last year and figure it is time to give the credit card a chance to cool off. One of my New Years resolutions for 2018 is no major purchases. So no new AEs. No suits. etc. Anything that wears out and needs replacing is in. But aside from that, nahdah.

    What's really going to test my resolve is holding off on purchasing a new watch. I keep being tempted to pick up an IWC but so far I've resisted the urge. As 2018 progresses, I'll see how I manage to hold up.

    Cool... I'm also holding off on a watch and a suit....

    Day 8 is good!

    Thankfully (?), Gustin jackets never seem to fit me, so Iíll probably avoid buying this. I donít want $650 of store credit with Gustin.

    I caved pretty spectacularly today. Stocked up on some silk pocket squares from the Mr. Porter sale and a dress shirt refresh from Spier & MacKay (since I've realized I always reach for the same two solid blue twill dress shirts when I'm suiting up in the morning).

    Hopping back on the wagon now....

    Still holding. Although I did have a brief moment of weakness yesterday upon seeing that SALE banner in the Mr. Porter app. Had to shut that down quick.

    Haha, before I knew it I had a pair of Dark Chili MacNeils on the way. First time trying 2nds, although I've heard mostly good things.

    Granted, I wasn't really trying to do the no shopping thing this year.
