1. Always, Always take a cart, you're going to need it.
2. Open up your senses, look around you and be open to what is there. It's not what you expect.
I came up with even decent fun things on a Sunday night after the weekend sale and racks have been pillaged:
Ibex jacket, crab pants from a Nantucket store, le Coq Sportif pants, Orvis shirt, BB Madison Tux pants, Arc'teryx
I was feeling so good that I drove to another store 1/2 hour away that was open late. Again it looked like it'd been pillaged. But, Istarted filling the cart:
Zegna sport coat, BB women's Loro Piana (buttons are worth more than I paid), Oxxford for Barneys complete suit, and Hickey Freeman complete suit
Tyrwhitt, Elliot, Costume National Shirts, Bill's Khaki pants
Athens 2004 Olympics hat and Superga shoes
And ... (might be fake?) the required 'Lo of the day.
And more ... BB ties, AE shoes,
