However, when I walked in yesterday it was merchandized to shit with Joseph Abboud and the like as far as the eye could see. I asked the SA where the usual trove of Barney's stuff that is usually sloppily hung in on a secluded rack was and he informed me that Filene's Basement is no longer sourcing garments from Barney's or even Filene's. It appears since they have been bought by Syms they have gone to stocking outlet-only lines, a la Men's Warehouse. Just thought I would give a friendly tip. Hopefully something to brag about in the near future.

My FB has sucked for years save for the random lucky hit, but this saves me some gas milage.

Are all the HF so huge through the waist? I found like 3 or four in a 38r that fit well in the shoulders but had no/little waist suppression...

Had a pretty decent shirt haul today.

Went ahead and threw a lot of them on the Bay. Normally I wouldn't flip quite this hard, but I've got my eye on a new chair for my living room. shog[1].gif

After a bit of a dry spell, I hit a purple patch today.

Zegna wool/cashmere blend SC $20 (and it fits beautifully!!)

500

Corneliani pure wool trousers $12 (on the left, the pictures don't do it justice, it is a stunning olive green).
Canali pure wool trousers $5 (on the right, again the pictures don't make them look anywhere nearly as good as they do in real life)
Philippe Vendome tie (pure silk, made in France, whimsical dolphin motif) $2
Zegna tie (old, slightly thrashed but should clean up nicely) $2
Pure Scottish wool tie, made in Scotland in IMMACULATE condition $2
I also got my first ever thrifted pocket square. $0.50. The lady at the thrift store didn't know what it was, she thought it was a very small ladies' scarf! Bless her!

500

That Zegna's an orphaned suit jacket. If you change the buttons (and it's navy, tough to tell from the photo) you could probably pass it off as a blazer.

It's navy. I wasn't sure if it was orphaned or not, either way for the price and the fit I thought it was worth a gamble. I think I will do the blazer conversion, all I have to do now is to find the right buttons.

Barneys is putting their items on deep discount in their B&M stores. At the end of winter clearance their house brand ties were like $9 and cashmere sweaters were less than $20.
