I went to New York City yesterday for a day trip. I went to the Scoop Warehouse Sale in SoHo and got PaperDenimCloth jeans for $39 (THE ORIGINAL RETAIL WAS $182). I'm not even kidding. I bought myself a pair and another one for a friend. They had a lot of clothes at very reduced prices. Prada shirts for $49, Sevens for $70, it was awesome.

They were selling PDCs on their website for that price, but that's still a good deal depending on the model if they fit well, their quality is substantially reduced now. I've been wearing a pair of older PDCs the last couple days, they are really well made and great fitting jeans, too bad they don't make them like that anymore. I'm not too crazy about 7FAM for $70 but I suppose it depends on the model and wash. You can usually find them at Nordstrom Rack for that, but Marshall's has raised their prices to about $90-100 now, but they also sometimes have better models like the Slimmy and others that have $180-200 MSRP.

suprisingly, fake apc's from h&m and fake slim jim's from the same namesake. I'm impresed-and I only spent $70 for both pairs. I'll post pics and measurments on the pinned topic; but I already measured them which is why I listed the jeans as fake-they're identical cuts; with severely low quality denim.

The cut of their shirts is terrific (slim, slightly shorter hem than usual, but not as body conscious as some of the Italian designers... very nice), and the materials are top notch. You are about my build, iirc from your pictures, so you'll love it, in all likelihood. It's too bad that the retail price for those things is skyrocketing into the $250+ range. I prefer them to the top end traditional Italian offerings, excepting perhaps Barba, which is a different look altogether (slim, but with high, hard, semispread collars).

I bought one of the BoO shirts from Jake a little while back...ended up getting it for something ridiculous like $45 shipped. It was the blue and green check shirt with snaps instead of buttons. LA Guy is right, the cut is really amazing. I've never had an off the rack shirt fit me as well as this BoO shirt. If they weren't so darn expensive I would buy quite a few more, as the one I have now has quickly become one of my favorite shits. I would highly recommend them as something to watch out for on sale.

Good to hear. The shirt was $80 on sale (with my luck it will be $50 tomorrow) and I needed a new buttondown for fall. I really need to learn how to spend my money on things other than expensive t-shirts if I want to expand my wardrobe . I was tempted to pick up a BoO tie too, but decided to save the 50 bucks for booze instead.

The ties are nice, but not outstanding. I have a black grosgrain 3 inch tie that I wear for my version of (deconstructed) black tie: black suit with peak lapels, Dries van Noten tuxedo shirt made entirely of pique material (same material usually used just for the bib), and my Band of Outsiders thin grosgrain long tie. Oh, and I wear my black Engineered Garments belt with this whole thing, with antique silver cufflinks to match.

Sounds pretty awesome. You should also rock a satin military cap

I'd do a grosgrain one in a minute. Actually, I'd do a satin one too, to go with the satin on my Costume National crepe dinner suit.

Actually, for a black tie wedding I am going to this weekend, I am wearing my "thrift" black tie outfit. The Costume National dinner suit ($350, down from $1300), a long satin tie (Zegna, got it for $6 a long while back, down from $115), the black Engineered Garments belt (a gift, retail $170) , and the Dries van Noten shirt ($36, down from retail of $395 from Louis Boston), and probably an pair of simple Prada laceups (a gift, but obtained for $79, improperly marked, down from $495 at Louis Boston. They are a pretty cool design, but in terms of materials and workmanship, are probably worth just a little more than the price paid) makes a total of a total paid price of $392 (more if you include the gifts, and add $25 if you include the antique silver cufflinks I picked up), down from a total retail of... $2470. Wow, I slay. Hmmm. maybe I'll post this on the "thrift shop find" thread, although nothing was technically gotten from a thrift or consignment shop.

I'm interested in seeing pics when you can post them as SoCal is H&M-less at the moment. I picked up a pair of RRL slim cut and another RRL lowrise bootcut, both one-wash selvage, off ebay. Go figure that I bought one for half the price of the other from the same seller but alas, the seller's stock has run out so perhaps I was lucky. Both pairs averaged out to around less than $40 incl. shipping. Seriously can't beat the price/quality.
