Clothing Guarantees? Yes, Please!

Buying off-brand clothing on clearance might seem like a good idea, but many times buying quality products can save you more money in the long term, if you purchase from a retailer that offers lifetime guarantees on their products. Some guarantee the product for its life, for any reason it should fail, and other guarantees cover specific components, so be sure to inquire or read the guarantee policy online before buying.

And, did you know that as you age, the natural padding on the soles of your feet decreases? Many of their socks are also padded, so they help cushion every step you make! They’re also great for hikers, children who play sports, and anyone who appreciates comfort and performance from a company that backs their products.  Want to be more frugal? Some colors and styles cost less than others, so click around and compare options and prices.
