D'oh! This is not a blessing, but a curse. Especially if you happen to love the vibrant stylings of Thomas Pink -- which around here, always, ALWAYS, get tucked away in the women's sections, due to the girly-looking label.

This is my first post on this forum but I've benefitted from the advice I've read so I'm passing along a deal for someone else...hopefully this is the proper place to post.  I was at Marshalls on Rockville Pike in Rockville, MD today and bought a brooks brothers 1818 Madison Navy Saxxon Herringbone suit for $199.  They had other suits (and sport coats) available too, including what looked to me like three gray stripe golden fleece suits for the same price, sizes 44r, 44r and 46r.  The suits were labeled full canvas and hand tailored in USA.  They also had another saxxon wool in 41r.  If they fit me, I would've bought them.  I shop at this store regularly and this is the first time I've seen BB suits there.

That IS good to know. I'm down that way from time to time and will now start looking in to see what they have. Thanks, gb!

Btw, thanks for the grandma go-ahead, Spoo...she loves the scarf (or is a very good faker). happy.gif

This week: another Zegna shirt with amazing fabric and arms meant for King Kong.

I got me a RRL black and cream flannel shirt for three dollars yesterday. It'll go great with my $200 jeans and $700 boots wink.gif

Would this be a big and tall King Kong or a somewhat lithe and tall King Kong? Just wondering, because I have ape arms (16 (sometimes 16.5) - 37/38 shirts) and I would probably be interested...

A few weeks ago I found an exquisite Moessmer leather bomber jacket. The lining is 85% virgin and 15% alpaca. It's in excellent condition, with all the real mother of pearl buttons still intact, including the two extra buttons sewn inside the jacket. It was made in Italy. I was ecstatic to find it, and even more so when it fit me perfectly.

Does anyone know much about Moessmer? I'd never heard of it before, but the feel of the leather and the real mother of pearl buttons made me get it. From googling, I see the company has been around since 1894 and has made loden coats for Brooks Brothers in the past, as well has providing fabrics for Cuccinelli, Louis Vuitton and others.

Regardless, this coat is icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Had some great finds today 1. Billy Reid Pants and 2. Ralph Lauren Purple Label Silk Shirt, but have to ask a question. Would you guys buy a Bijan lizard belt for $195 in order to flip it. Would really appreciate some thoughts.
