Wow! The Marshalls in Austin never gets anything like that, at least that I have seen. We have two new Marshalls in Austin now and one of them is relatively decent. They have Allen Edmonds on a fairly regular basis at OK, but not great prices. I've found some really good deals at the one in Laredo, but I don't get down there much anymore.
A few days ago at a thrift store I found a nice hefty red Brooks Brothers tie for $1.50 and a Bullock & Jones sport coat for $2. I am pretty sure it is cashmere, but it might be a really nice camel hair. There is no fabric tag. I have no idea why they priced it so much lower than their other jackets. Anyone know who might make stuff for Bullock & Jones?
A few weeks ago I was visiting my family in Virginia and caught the 75% off sale at Yesterday's Rose in Fairfax. There were people filling up whole grocery carts with clothes.
Anyway, I got a very nice navy blue linen suit made for Britches of Georgetown and what seems like a pretty nice leather coat. It had no label. They thought pretty highly of the coat as it was originally priced at $45, but after the markdown both linen suit and leather coat came to around $15 total. Oh, and I got a Jerry Garcia tie with some really pretty colors. Too bad they are so flimsy.
