Yesterday I went on a shopping spree. For the first time in ages I treated myself to something I wanted instead of needed. Usually when I shop, it’s for others and I’m buying what they need. Rarely did I ever indulge myself and buy something just for me. And in truth, I really needed these items this time; it was high time I got a decent classic fitted suit rather than one off the rack from the department store. And I was entitled to a good overcoat so I could stand off the chills this coming winter. But I also wanted to be wearing something that looked classy. So when I saw that Charles Tyrwhitt ad offering 4 men’s 100% cotton shirts for $199, I decided to act. Honestly, it felt like I was getting four free spins in a game.
And since I knew I could use a Groupon promo code to save up to 70% on Tyrwhitt’s summer sale, it was ridiculous for me not to take advantage of this rare opportunity. So that was how the whole thing started, over a bunch of shirts. Because, as I selected the shirts and picked the sizes, colors and patterns, I realized the shirts wouldn’t look right paired with those two-year-old trousers I wore. So I picked out two new pairs that would go perfectly with the shirts. And while picking them out I saw a perfect sports jacket and sweater. So I added them to my list as well; then prepared to finalize my order and pay. But while looking up the Groupon promo code number I was reminded that with fall I’d need a decent overcoat. So I went back to look at their overcoats, and saw a classic navy wool and cashmere overcoat. I couldn’t be getting a flu shot yet pass up a quality overcoat like that! And since I’d gone that far, I picked out a suit that would match the shirts. Of course, I also needed a good tie, socks and shoes to complete the wardrobe.
To sum it up, what started with four shirts ended as a complete new fall wardrobe! But believe me when I say it was worth it. And when it was delivered I was practically giddy with delight. Charles Tyrwhitt and Groupon combined to get me looking good for this fall season.
