It’s been hot as balls here in SF lately, and as I pace around all sweaty in my dark denim, people are walking around dressed as if they’re in South Beach Miami.
Can’t blame them, though. It’s way too hot for heavy denim. So I hopped on down to Old Navy tonight and snagged like 5 pairs of shorts. My total was $112. Not bad, considering that before I even thought of Old Navy, I was about to drop $50-$60 on just one pair.
I don’t always shop based on price though. If you’re a long-time EG reader, you know that I advocate buying quality when it matters, and skimping a bit when it doesn’t.
I spend money on good shoes, good liquor, good electronics… things I like and want a good experience owning / using. But when it comes to, say, boxer briefs, I’m okay with whatever Target carries.
Basics: Worth the splurge or okay to skimp?
