Sober up

not talking about fit, fabric, or color, but rather some other deterrent, something unrelated to the item itself, something independent of the product, that squashed the urge to buy (something internal) -

when was the last time something stopped you in your tracks?

Bad workmanship forces the item back onto the rack every time.

I am probably interpreting this too literally, but if there is an indication that somebody else tried the item on, like for example a long hair on it, or a lisptick smudge, I will definitely not buy it. (Yet I sometimes buy stuff in secondhand stores - so how weird is that?)

This morning I was headed into a local dept. store to (as my mother always said) "see what they are wearing", when a Free Tibet demonstration inadvertently blocked my entry for 10 min. That made me stop and question my need for yet another skirt.

i agree with enc shoddy workmanship. but also the brand. there are certain brands i absolutely will not consider.
and an unbelievably and i mean mocking me to my face rude salesperson...the item will go straight back on the rack. as of right now i cant even read the name calvin klien w/o cringing a little.

Yes, seeing that something I like is by a certain designer/brand that I dislike is enough to stop me in my tracks.

I got a phone call once about some work-related thing, and it stressed me out so much that it killed my appetite for shopping immediately.

Bad store design -- if I feel ill in your retail space, I lose interest in continuing to try on clothes and/or standing in line to buy them.
