It's fall and all the stores where you like to buy shirts have no doubt put all their fall and winter shirt selections out on the floor. You might be thinking it's too late to pick up a couple of summer shirts, stores have packed those away in the back room, you'll have to wait until next season to get any.
Think again. Now is the perfect time to buy summer shirts! Most stores don't pack away seasonal shirts, they don't have room in the back (more winter items are still coming in) and what they have on hand might not be quite as trendy next summer so on the floor they stay, deeply discounted.
Look around that sales floor, among all the flannels, long sleeve shirts and pullovers, there's a rack or two, perhaps a display table somewhere with summer shirts on it. Shirts that were normally $25, $40 or $50 and up are now $5, $10, $15. We're talking name brands too, IZOD, Stafford, PGA Tour, Adidas and more. The selection won't be like as for the beginning of summer, but you'll find something to your liking. And like I said, what's available might not be THE trend setter next summer season, but hey, we're guys, we like our favorite shirts right? Trends be damned. And if you're like me, I tend to wear short sleeve shirts year-round, they make up the bulk of the shirt selection in my closet. I can't have enough short sleeve and summer shirts! Buying them deeply discounted and/or on clearance only makes sense and yes, I'll wear them out-of-season! SHOCKER!
And the same thing that works for buying summer shirts when tree leaves turn color works for fall and winter shirts too. Wait until spring to get those.
