July 2015 Summary

July 2015 haulJuly was a very good month as in the name brands I was able to find and the variety of items on the racks and shelves. I am learning to discern more between what name brands to put in the cart and which ones to leave for others. I was able to find some of my favorites as usual such as Ermenegildo Zegna, Giorgio Armani, Burberry and of course Brioni. There were a few surprises in finding the Versace shirt and glasses, the two expensive Oxxford coats, one with surgeon sleeves, and the Zegna linen jacket that was much more expensive the I would have thought purchased for one dollar! Here is what I found for $328.55 valued at $34,288. That’s a record for me of 104 times as much as I spent if purchased new as a comparison. My goal was to have a month where the value was at least one hundred times as much letting me know that my eye was finding the finer quality/expensive items. It’s nice to have goals you can meet. June was rated at 103 times as much, May was 80 times and the preceding April was 67 times a much. The rate is definitely increasing. I’ll let you know how the statistics show up for August. How are your stats looking?
