Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks. As I approach my 40th year in the menswear business, it wasn't until about 5 years ago that I finally learned how to properly operate my open to buy. After trying to do it myself for all those many years, I had Danny start doing my OTB's in critical classifications, and the differences I am seeing in my profit are almost overwhelming. My turns have increased noticeably, and I am able to come back in season to take advantage of off-price merchandise because I now have the OTB for them. Also since I don't have any partners in my business, it's nice to have someone to hold me accountable in my buying.
