American Smooth

Apologies that I have been away for a little while, but I can assure you it was all worth it – I’ve been shopping! The United States beckoned, and given that us Brits often have to spend a long time waiting for the opportunity to raid Uncle Sam’s stores, I was happy to answer the call.

As you will probably know, there are plenty of great shops that just aren’t around in the UK (American Eagle/Hollister to mention a couple), and you’ll see in the photo below they afforded me some great stuff very much in line with my motto.

Yet what made my visit all the more interesting was the fact that all the shops were preparing their rails for a sale. Now, having been subjected for too long to London prices, the extra discount was enough to turn me into shopping machine.

Which brings me on to a difficult topic for a man looking for maximum style at minimum price. The one thing that tends to happen with the sales is that you occasionally get what you want for a great price, but more often than not you end up getting what you don’t want, for a price you didn’t need/want to pay.

My advice: never abandon your style principles just because the clothes are cheaper. Stick to what you know – only then will you really end up with some true bargains.
