I don't know if ya'll know this or not, but I'm a pretty big nerd when it comes to shopping deals. Quality at good prices. I also have an unhealthy obsession with hoodies and shoes. :D

Post your deals! :D

r/frugalmalefashion is also good throughout the year. there is also r/femalefrugalfashion but it's quite inactive. I usually bug krys with deals from the former, and there are apparently a ton of female users on that sub as well.

camelcamelcamel.com is good for pricewatches and history on amazon, but be aware that amazon relists items to fudge with the price history.


edit: I like cheap basics but expensive jeans and shoes
edit 2: i should also mention that "frugal" especially in my own opinion and the rules of the sub are cheaper than full price but not necessarily cheap for most people. id rather pay more for something that lasts longer (and still looks good/stylish) than something that needs replacing way sooner and multiple times.

Hmm. I'd say should be just clothes/fashion just because we could prolly discuss cheap stuff/free money for hours off the topic of clothes alone. (for example: I think there was a credit card thread at one point but I can't find it. other than annual fees I haven't paid the companies anything, but I'm sitting on probably $6,000+ worth of points alone)

Around Christmas, J. Crew has some really great prices on their clothing (you have to watch for it, but they usually have a couple of free shipping days in December, too). I like their basics a lot. Their clothing is high quality (or anything I've bought from them has been).

The Barneys.com site has some pretty good prices in their clearance section. The good stuff disappears so fast, though. Nice stuff.

r/frugalmalefashion explodes when jcrew does that though it hasn't been so hot recently because of the changes in leadership and declining quality of clothes.

However, theres a link floating around for their email signup discount which almost always stacks with whatever discount they're doing (40% off everything, etc.) and theres a max of two coupons per order.

ALSO, if theres something that immediately sells out when it goes on sale, their restocks go live at 12am EST.

Last year people got whole wardrobes for under $150

Got this yesterday. It's so nice and comfy. The lining inside is really nice too. Not the sherpa material like the outside, but still nice. It's a Junior size, so beware of that when ordering. $10 is well worth it. Will probably order more colors.

Side note. A lot of the Walmart clothes I'll share I found from fashion YouTubers doing budget hauls. So far it's been all great stuff!

I used to love aerie sweaters, but every single one i've bought pills so bad. They're currently on my shit list for anything other than jeans.

The last few things I've purchased from J. Crew have been trash. I'm so disappointed with the quality dip because I used to be able to get my husband good basics there and it's hard to find anything he'll wear.

It seems everything I buy these days pills up in a second. I need new brands to try.
