Even if I know that the higher quality clothes will last longer and feel nicer. When I looked online the highest price I could find from that ZeroXposur coat was from Sears and it was $130 so I am getting a pretty good deal still.
And like I said the reason I just bought them both is that since it is on my CC that still has 0% I do not need to worry about paying it off on the next cycle. I can try both of them on and see which one I like best and send the other one back for a full refund.
I rather socialize and network and than see what I can get for a good price and regardless, I always prefer quality > quantity (one jacket you can wear for five years and still look new)
I frequented an Indian restaurant often because it was near my work then, and the restaurant owner turns out to have several businesses back in his country, and one of them is a franchise of north face (was selling it under table before north face came in and he pretty much made the store so now it's a part of the NF franchise) so I can get anything at the wholeseller through him
When I used to work retail, all the managers know each other, so my bags, jewelry, are at employee or friends and family pricing + employee discount, but there were certain brands that even at 50% off didn't make sense for lil ol' college me (Chanel is 50% off)
even without that, if you wait for end of year sales, friends and family type of promos, you can effectively get it for about the same price that you're paying for those two there, so it wouldn't hurt to look out and broaden your horizon. There are also some places that when you shop, because they don't have a b&m in your state and isn't Amazon or affiliated with Amazon (no longer shop at shopbop because of this) you could save on top of other stuff like cashback portals
