1.  Do your kids go to school on the last day of school?

2.  Do you throw (or let them throw) an end of year party for their friends?

3.  How many *graduation ceremonies* will/have your children experienced in their life time?

My family doesn't shop at Abercrombie because of the trashy marketing policies, nor have the boys expressed any interest in Hollister. None of gs would by caught dead with a store name flashed across our bodies, I honestly do not get why people honk it's stylish or chic to serve as a walking billboard for a store and pay good money for the privilege. My college-age son wears the Express dress shirts.

Hey, still waiting to hear where you saw pictures of me.

Maybe it's more personal taste and how much money you have to spend. Neither my son nor I will pay the $$$ that it costs to wear Ralph Lauren polis bought new, although my husband has one I found for 5.00 at a yard sale, brand new with tags.

You get what you pay for. I have washed RL Polo's (as well as other expensive brands) for years and they are like brand new everytime (maybe that is why your dh found one for $5). 

If you know how to shop, you NEVER pay full price and with clearance prices and coupons and discounts, you save A TON and get good quality clothes.

I agree the Express shirts are overpriced, but they fit the kid beautifully. He's only got three or four of the shirts, two of which I got him for Christmas a few years back.

Aren't their shirts on the higher side too?

Spring, I saw pictures of you on my computer. As for the Express shirts, they often go on sale for two for seventy dollars, and that is when I bought them.

On your computer? Where? I don't remember sending you pictures of me.

Not too bad. Hubby got 2 Lacoste Polo's for $60 recently. With them being on clearance, coupon from my job, Macy's coupon they were a steal. I have gotten him polo shirts in other stores at lower prices (you know those $10 or $20/shirt sale) and they don't last as long as the more expensive brands. You have to get sales though for it to be worth it as Tommy Bahama button down shirts can run $140. Crazy.

I don't remember where I saw them on my computer, Spring. Either at home or in my office, most likely.

It's rude to tell someone they don't look good in a picture. Even on a debate board bord. Why do you stalk her pics when you aren't even friends with her? Or doess it go back to, She started it first..........

My husband has one or two r/l polos and I agree they withstand the test of time.  Many of his polos are basic, generic brand that he ends up using as grass cutting shirts b/c they're cheaper and don't last as long.

"I have never seen anyone out of high school wearing half shirts and especially not a 40 year old woman. "

 

Exactly the point we've been making. 40 yo women shouldn't dress as if they shopped in the Juniors department.
