“This is one of the questions I get asked the most.

You buy a pair of slacks, keep the tag on, wear them to your high school reunion, and then return them the next day. Everyone’s done it. However, how long can you get away with this?

My longest? A year and a half. Of course there was a bit of confusion when the Salvation Army thought I was donating the pants.

The key to this… how clean can you keep your pants? I slopped jelly on the pants and I wore to my high school reunion, but I was able to get away with it by folding it just so.

Unfortunately, there is no exact answer. I like to go as soon as possible in order to have a fully customizable wardrobe. $20 for a year’s worth of clothes ain’t to shabby.

Have you ever done this? How long did you wait to return them? “
