I went shopping for clothes the other day. There were two reasons behind this:
1. I needed some more clothing that fits me better. As faithful Diatribe readers (all 7.5 of you) know, the DZER has lost some weight over the past year and change. I'm down a full two pants sizes, necessitating me to put a couple more holes into my belt in order to keep up suddenly loose pants.
2. I need to do laundry ... and now I don't have to for a few more days. Yes, folks, it's true -- I'm THAT fucking lazy! LOL
Here are some shirts I bought at Kmart, perfect for both the office and the golf course. The shirts, also, are two sizes smaller than what I was wearing a year and change ago.
Now I've never really had problems getting shirts on island; there are a few stores that offer larger sizes. Pants, on the other hand, have always been a problem -- no place sold pants in my size (yes, THAT big).
But now that I'm svelte -- well, as svelte as, says, a major appliance can be LOL -- I have some more options. Here are the new pants.
From left, business-casual black slacks, business-casual tan slacks, and deep indigo-blue jeans.
The shirts were on sale — normally $17.99, I got them for $12 each. Yay!
The pants were not on sale, and big men's clothes are usually NOT cheap. Black slacks, $44.95. Tan slacks, $49.95. Jeans, $49.95.
Total for mini shopping spree: $180.85.
Also not too bad. I used to order most of my clothing from online, usually Sears Big & Tall. I'd usually just place one big order a year, unless there was a sale, which usually meant at least $700, and all of it charged. Which helped lead to my whopping personal debt. These days, I'm a strictly cash man.
If you made it through this boring-ass post ... good for you! You've earned 5 DZER points!
