Well its about that time of the year again. Time for Autumn that is. September 23 will be here before you know it. And around this time of the year, is “peak time” to nab everything you’ll need to stay stylish this fall.
I’ve neen practicing this trick for years, and I’ll be the first to tell you if something works, or flops! I’ve learned a lot in my eleven or so years in menswear.
You encounter all types of people from all walks of life and some things you keep in a small little compartment in your memory, and some things you toss.
Here’s 3 tips that I’ve kept:
1.) I absolutely live by this rule.
- NEVER PAY RETAIL!
Why? Because you don’t have to. Here’s the trick. Every department store, and especially boutiques have customer portfolio log book. Make your sales person acquaintance. Give them everything from your shoe size to you date of birth! I have a closet FULL of goods that I’ve owned for years. And most of it was acquired from associate call backs.
2.) Attend your local apparel mart. Almost every metropolis has one. And on certain days, they’ll allow certain organization to come and take advantage of their great sample sales. If your in ATLANTA, visit Americas Mart.
3.) Only the strong will survive utilizing this skill. But if you want to save “some dough” you gotta step it up a little. Try visiting your local dry cleaners! You’d be surprised what they try to get rid of after 90 days!
Again, “why pay retail when you don’t have to”? 🙂
