JV competition or not, @hooker4186, don't sell yourself short. That is, indeed, one hell of a find. Had I seen that in a store, I would have had to reach for the nearest Robert Graham shirt.

Next are from a home downsizing sale. Most everything was at thrift prices aside from the coats which were I guess at low consignment prices (~$30).

They priced old label Boss and old Armani stuff higher. After a little haggling, I was able to get a number of items thrown in free (including the RLPL leather jacket since it has some dark spots on the back) and with a final discount off the whole bill.

I probably left behind over half the wardrobe- a lot of which was older label zegna, and the rest recent label but with monogrammed initials on the chest. Sadly, there were over 20 very recent label Zegna suits/sport coats which they priced higher and wouldn't come down to thrift prices so I left those (and anyway about half were su misura with his name on the label).
