Where do you get your clothes?

I was reading this post on Lifehacker today, and it made me think of how I’ve been going through pants at an alarming pace.  I get my clothes from KingSize Direct, as size “50-something” pants aren’t typically found in brick and mortar stores for less than $60.00.  By the time a pair of pants is delivered and washed, I’m ready for the next size down.  This is getting expensive.

As the article points out, shopping at thrift stores in upscale neighborhoods can yield upscale finds at bargain basement prices.  As I’ve never been one to shop for clothes outside of a catalog, I have no experience with this.  I’m writing mainly to share the idea with you as you go through the process of needing smaller clothes, and to see if you have any war stories to share.

    I’m not one to shop at the thift stores, but then again, they are a source.

    Fortunately, I’ve been able to find clothes at Walmart, etc. But I am able to shop at those brick and mortor stores. The last pair of pants I bought were $12. Not of great quality mind you, but works none the less.

    And, I have a friend in one of our classes who has graciously given me her clothes she’s shrunk out of. I hope to find someone to pass mine on to (although they are cheap at this point!). It’s hard to ask ladies their sizes. I may just talk with the Dieticians and let them point them to me.

    Two words for you. Consignment shop. If you are willing to invest a little time, you can actually find some great deals, i.e. some guy who bought a hundred pairs of pants, wore them once, decided he no longer liked them, and so his wife has dumped them off at the local consignment dealer. Like I said, it takes a time investment, but for what you’ll be saving, it’s often worth a Saturday or two.
