Ermenegildo Zegna "Resort Suit" (unstructured linen/cotton blend I think) $899 with $2000 retail tags attached. Not worth it
Brioni Tuxedo - $549 with $6500 tag still attached. I snagged this, and then realized the pants were missing. I scoured the floor and the pants rack to no avail (as if I was in a thrift store). Talked to the sales clerk about it....she said she was pretty sure the pants had been STOLEN. ffffuuuu.gifThat sucks

Loro Piana 100% cashmere unstructured KNIT sportcoat. About a 40R or 40L. This thing was nuts. No retail price on it, but had a marshalls markdown from $999 to $419......bad pass?
Loro Piana is hot stuff, and $419 is a fabulous price if you intend to keep. If you intend to flip, not worth it. These things struggle to sell beyond $500.

Kopped
Sartoria Partenopea Wool Cashmere SC. Forget the exact listed size, but fit me well so probably around a 41R/L. $300 reduced from $899 with the $2500 retail tag still attached. biggrin.gif Don't know if I'll be keeping it or not. I'll post some pics later. [/B]Decent score[/B]

TL;DR #5 Last is long and narrow--if you don't know how it fits you try it on in an AE store before you buy.

Good luck,
AB

Was just there today and they have a mint pair of AE McAllisters in Merlot (10D) for $125. Some ties can be had for a good price. But have to sift through a lot of junk.
In fact, here is a link to their website with those shoes.

Not my size, but appreciate you posting listings like these, esp. since they ship. Thanks.

Went out to a couple of spots.  Not much out today, but here are the highlights:

 

1x Brioni Tie.

 

1x Sulka dress shirt.  17.

 

1x Pringle of Scotland wool argyle sweater.

 

1x really nice "Monticello" for Nordstrom made in New England brown leather dress belt.  34.  (I don't know a thing about "Monticello," but the belt was really nice and the made in NE is what hooked me.)

 

All Available.

 

Thanks, -M-

Also found an olive Donegal tweed sportcoat that smelled like pot. All available.

This is actually really good to know. I've noticed that my AE size is all over the place. This must be why. Thanks!

Yeah, always consult their last chart:  http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/AllAboutLastsView?langId=&storeId=1&catalogId=40000000001

 

And here's a great resource for finding what last a particular shoe is on:  http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?64989-Allen-Edmonds-Styles-vs.-Lasts

I was thinking the same thing after trying on some Hales at Nordstrom Rack this morning.  Thanks, Andro!

Yup, these are my dilemma. They are stretching naturally, but slowly.

No prob. fistbump.gif

The store actually offers way more than what is shown on their website. I almost want to walk in there and help them get their online sales up and going.

Ties like Hermes and Charvets(sometimes as low as $17.50!) that they could easily unload online.
