Returning Clothes

“Turns out Chartreuse Isn’t my Color”

Christmas has come and gone, and hopefully all the fashionable gifts you received are perfect fits. But on the offhand that your Aunt thinks’s you’re a large when you’re really a medium, let me tell you how to proceed.

Returning clothes is an unknown concept to me. In my lifetime, I’ve received multiple shirts and outfits that don’t fit me at all, but I’ve been too lazy or intimidated to return the items.

Either it’s the journey back to the store, or the act of going that always stops me. In fact, right now I have two pairs of jeans that don’t fit and didn’t fit the day I got them in 2016, and I’ve never returned them.

Three Cyber Mondays ago I bought a pair of Clarks boots, and they fit so poorly that they left my feet bleeding from blisters, but did I return them? Of course not. I did my own impression of Curt Schilling in the 2004 Red Sox – Yankees game and walked around with a bloody sock.

Which returns me to the subject of…returning. Turns out it’s incredibly easy!  Just go to the store, swap a few items, and give back the rest, and then use the money to buy things that you actually need.

So if you’re like me and intimidated by the return process – don’t be! At the ripe old age of 31, I finally conquered my fear of the return line, proudly marched into Uniqlo and declared that I had no use for baggy shirts of their kind.

Maybe ease back on the statements in public stores, but when it comes to returning, I highly recommend. You may even end up with a cool jean jacket like I did.
