"Close out stores are my secret. There is a Dilliards close out store here in Baton Rouge. I get Perry Ellis button-ups for $10-$20. I usually have to buy off-season... They Winter overstock in the Spring and the Summer overstock in the Fall."

"At your age I went to thrift stores. Go to ones near rich neighborhoods and you'll be surprised; lots of expensive classics, often from estate liquidations of old people, for cheap."
