For all those that might interested: I went back to TJ Maxx and took stock of everything they have. Â It is all listed below, as best as I can describe it. Â They all have original tags with certificates of authenticity and original prices on them. Â I=Italy size, USA=USA size. Blue Label (Giorgio Armani Classico): Knit buttondown shirt with point collar, long sleeves, and sleeve placket. Â 100% wool. Â medium weight wool that's soft, but more of a cotton feel to it. Â Original price $450, sell for $50 shipped. Â In colors/sizes: dark olive (56I 40USA), light grey (56I, 40USA), navy (56I, 40USA), light grey (58I, 42USA). Fine gauge mock neck (I think this is what it is... Â the collar is a little over 2 inches high, which is longer than most mock necks i've seen, so it could be folded over too i guess). Â 40% wool, 30% cashmere, 30% silk. Â Very soft and fine to the touch, definitely one of the best items. Â Original price $525, sell for $85 shipped. Color: sky blue, Size: 48. Another fine gauge mock neck in light gray (with the same ambiguous collar height). 70% Cashmere, 30% silk. Very soft, not as thin as the blue one, my favorite item. Original price $600, sell for $100 shipped. Size: 58. Medium gray long sleeve tee shirt. 88% viscose, 12% silk. Nothing special here but will sell it at cost if anyone is interested. Original price $525 (yeah, right...), sell for $40 shipped. Size 58I 42USA. Black Label (Giorgio Armani): Light heathered gray cardigan, kind of like the knit buttondown above, except no sleeve placket and a 1/2" high band instead of a point collar. Â Buttons all the way down the front. Â Also has a french placket (instead of a regular one on the blue label knit buttondown). Â Medium weight, still cotton-y but a bit softer. 90% wool, 10% cashmere. Size 54I 38USA.Â Original price $1350, sell for $50 shipped. Size 30 Flat front 100% wool pants. black. medium weight wool. Sell for $70 shipped. Single-pleat black tuxedo style pants (a little strip of something shiny down the outer seams) in a medium weight wool. Â Slash pockets. Sizes 33, 34, 36, 38, 40. Â Sell for $70 shipped Size 34 flat front navy trousers in 95% medium weight wool and 5% spandex. Â My favorite of the pants. Â Side tabs (like some suit pants have) to allow for tightening. Â Also at the center of the waist, the closure is a snap instead of a button or a hook. Â Sell for $80 shipped. Size 36 single-pleat grey pants. Â Design is a bit strange. Â Slash pockets. Â It doesn't have a waistband in the sense that there is no seam 2" from the top of the pants, but there are belt loops. Â Sell for $70 shipped. Navy wool bucket-style hat. Â sell for $25 shipped. 2 very thin black leather belts (like .5" thick) in size 46 and 54. Â sell for $30 shipped. Other items: Armani Collezioini khaki-color dress shirt in M with covered placket -- nothing special and not worth it IMO, but sell for $40 shipped. LOTS (like over 50) of Emporio Armani items including extrafine merino in many styles and colors and sizes and in a course, open wool/acrylic blend knit. Â Also lots of pants and shirts. Â I figured not many people would be interested in these as they are similarly priced to the above, but if anyone is curious I can check (the people who work there were getting suspicious with me scribbling all of these things down) So if anyone is interested, please PM me... Â also any advice as to what would be good for eBay would be appreciated. Â I'll leave you with a few other fine items I found as I perused the aisles: A gorgeous $1200 linen/cashmere blend gray v-neck sweater with an $80 price tag and a 5" hole in the sleeve. And the cream of the crop: A single white Polo Ralph Lauren brief on a hanger marked on clearance for $3, down from $8.
