I went to my local TJ Maxx today searching for PDC jeans and happened across a bunch of clearance items from the black "giorgio armani" line and the blue "giorgio armani classico" label. Â I know armani has a bad reputation here, especially the collezioni line, but I'm wondering if the higher end stuff is worth it at a deep discount, if not for me then for eBay? There were probably about 50 items in total: Black Label: 2 tweed blazers MSRP $1500, clearance $180 8 wool single-pleat pants (sz 34,36,38) MSRP $550, clearance $58 2 belts Â msrp $200, clearance $20 Lots of knit sweaters 100% wool $40 Blue Label: Silk, wool, cashmere blend sweaters, turtlenecks in lots of colors but mostly in sz S were $40 In addition there were a bunch of emporio armani chunky wool/acrylic sweaters but they didn't look that great. These are only first clearance markdowns and I imagine they willl be marked down more, but would any of these items fetch a good price on eBay? Â Are they worth it for the money? Thanks in advance, Rohan
HOLY SHIT. Where are you located that your TJ Maxx gets such nice things? I've never seen anything close to that nice at my locations. To answer your question, it's probably worth it to pick up those items for Ebay. You'll be able to double your money at the very least, given that you take satisfactory pictures. I still can't believe that these items were at TJ Maxx. To answer your other question, the black and blue labels are much much better than collezioni. Those prices are great too. It might not be Kiton quality, but when you're paying $180/blazer, $20/belt, $60/pants, its definitely worth it. Those are all 90% off or more on original prices. You might want to wait for the next clearance round for the blazers. Jackets and suits seem to sit at my TJ Maxx for a while, so you might be able to get them at next round clearance for $120 in a few weeks. Same with the pants. Definitely get the belts now, and the sweaters are a great buy at $40. If you do pick some stuff up, please let me know, as I would be interested. I'd fit a size Small in the blue label sweaters, so if you were able to pick one up in a V-neck or crewneck, I'd pay you back plus give you extra for shipping and your time.
