    3 pairs of pants and 2 dress shirts in 1 afternoon

    I've been in dire need of new clothes for a long time now. Some people shop all the time; others go on a big shopping outing 2-3 times a year; I, on the other hand, haven't bought new pants in almost five years. Awful, isn't it? I needed one of those "Queer Eye" guys to get me back on track with my wardrobe. But instead I mustered up the courage today to brave the malls.

    Within three hours, I had a laundry list of new clothes:

    1 pair of Dockers light tan flat-front pants
    1 pair of Dockers dark tan flat-front pants
    1 pair of Gap sandblasted vintage relaxed boot fit jeans
    1 fancy-lad blue-checked Express dress shirt
    1 not-so fancy-lad cranberry Van Heusen dress shirt

    Final tally: three pairs of pants and two dress shirts for less than $120. I may not shop for clothes very often, but when I do, *whamo* I find the bargains.
