Its available.   Chest: 21.5" Shoulders: 18.75" Length: 30.25" Sleeve: 25"   I forgot to mention that the same owner also donated a black double breasted blazer by Zegna.  It was about the same age as the T&A, and they wanted $20 so I passed.  However, the quality and condition was pretty much right in line with the T&A.  If anyone wants me to try to pick it up for them, I can probably get it for $50 shipped (the store is a bit of a drive away).
Not a bad weekend of thrifting for me...WAIT A MINUTE, IT WAS AN AMAZING WEEKEND         .  I guess compared to some of the other stuff that's been posted lately none of this will appear that great (a NWT Prada suit that was posted like it was no big deal...seriously??? that's a grail find), but some of this stuff is very rare for my area.     [[SPOILER]]
  Absolutely!  There's a wide range of expenses you can deduct, including mileage on a car which is a HUGE deduction ($0.55 per mile).  You just have to make sure that you keep very detailed records.  For mileage, you should have some sort of mileage sheet that you write on for every trip.  Anything less than that the IRS probably would not accept.  Some other things you could deduct would be the cost of items sold, storage equipment for clothing, dry cleaning & tailoring...
  +1.  Definitely not worth picking up.  As far as I know the only vintage Burberry's stuff worth buying is trench coats.
  I'm pretty sure you're wrong about the Zegna tie.  I think its mainline, but just a little older when they put the Z in the background of the label.  I have had several pieces of clothing with this label.    The Z Zegna line doesn't say "Ermenegildo" anywhere on the label.  I've also had a few pieces of clothing in this line.   [[SPOILER]]     Maybe someone could verify this for me.
  Regardless of who the maker is, I've passed every Armani item I've seen with that label.  This era of Armani was horrible style in my opinion.  It takes discipline to pass items like that, but in the past several months of thrifting I've tried to focus more so on looking for style than brand names.  This has led me to pass up on some older Canali, Zegna (especially the "soft" line), Pal Zileri, and other older labels.     Whenever you list an older item like that on...
  This drives me crazy too.  However, I know a lot of stores encourage people to donate even their heavily damaged clothing, because they cut it up and sell it in bulk as rags.  So its the thrift store making the dick move to put it on the racks.     Use your cell phone, I wanna see that!!
  Noted, thanks.     Thanks, I'm really surprised they are that old.  The styling is a lot more modern then some 8-10 yr old suits I've found.  However, I just did the pinch test and they failed, but I can't say I really care.
Does anyone know anything about Polo RL made in USA suits?  Label looks like this:   [[SPOILER]]     I picked up two suits like this and they are pretty sick.  One is a lightgray birdseye, double-vented, with a ticket pocket and side tabs on the pants.  I love it!   On another note, any opinions on this for the ebay listing pic?  This is one of the Polo RL suits (did I mention these suits are awesome?).  I don't have a mannequin.    [[SPOILER]]
I bought two NWOT Hickey Freeman suits from a thrift for 49.99 each, and they were the LTD. line for Dilliards.  I kept one for myself and sold the other for $150, so it was a great deal for me.  Oh and the one I sold was a horribly ugly unvented black with bronzish pinstripes.  Sometimes its easily worth it to spend that kind of money at a thrift.
