  1. When buying clothes or shoes in a store, the appropriate size, fit and price of the item(s).

  2. I see if the price is reasonable/affordable, whether the attire fit, how long it will last, and if it can be easily damaged (stains, rips, etc.). I also check if the imagery is appropiate (no penile/vaginal references, no drugs, no gangsigns, etc.)

  3. Fit, Fit, Fit! Especially with shoes, since I need a size 9 and1/2 AAAA w/AAAAAA heel to fit right. Clothing is less of a problem, since I lost a lot of weight a couple of years ago, so I no longer need XX-large sizes any more.

  4. Quality matters most. Look at the seams ,feel the material and turn the shoes over and read the material liable. Then decide how much wear or what is the occasion you will be wearing it for.

  5. Fit, Fit, Fit ! Especially with shoes, since I need size 9 and 1/2 AAAA width. They are hard to find and very expensive! I have found only one good source online/mail order for shoes in my size, but I can’t afford them. Clothing is somewhat less of a problem, since I lost a lot of weight a couple of years ago, so I don’t have to have XX-sizes any more.

  6. Sales staff acknowledging me, offering assistance but not bugging when I am browsing but available when I request assistance. I hate it when sales staff make you feel like you are bothering them if you ask a question
