I have a problem. I'm a thrift store shopper and have been for years. Nearly every article of clothing (besides socks and skivvies) in my wardrobe was either a gift or a thrift store purchase. It's not out of necessity, I'd just rather spend my money elsewhere. It's just like bike commuting, when a bike can get me to work just as well as a car there's no reason to drive. I'd like to buy some cycling specific clothing, but I just can't bear to pay for even the cheapest gear. I'm sure for some people $40 for a jersey or $70 for shorts is no big deal, but I can't break out of the "t-shirts are $3, regular shirts are $5 and pants are $8" mentality. My wife bought me a pair of Swerve cycling shants for christmas, and I feel guilty (yet quite comfy ) every time I put them on knowing how much they cost.
Does anyone else suffer from this affliction?
