Sure enough, I found 3 Kiton Sport Coats, 4 Brioni Shirts, and 3 Corneliani suits.... All priced around market value.....

edit:  I've had some questions, so to clarify on market value:
Kitons - $1000
Brionis-$70
Cornelianis-$400-500

Are these the "compare at" prices that the marshall's tag sez or what you think is the resell/fleabay value?

I've found a lot of those in album covers. I've found a lot of seeds too.

Two interesting Zegna items:

 

Sky Blue 100% Cotton light weight Zegna chinos (flat front).  Wish these things fit so I could rock them for Spring (Waist - 38/40, Inseam 31/32)

Super Soft (almost Chamois-like) 100% Cotton Zegna Ecru/Ivory l/s shirt (sized XL, measures approximately 25" p2p)

Both available.

Thrift fit pic of the day:
Only the jacket, tie and shoes were thrifted. Others were either gifts or sweet retail sale purchases.


Jacket: Alan Flusser (I don't care what you people say, this looks like I'm Gordon Gekko) 3-roll-2, double vent with ticket pocket
Tie: Ted Baker
Shoes: AE split toe, norwegian in whiskey (forget the model name) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Pics are kind of dark, so I'll describe: jacket is a mid-beige herringbone tweed, trousers are a chocolate brown, tie is chocolate brown silk with blue woven polka dots, PS is chocolate brown silk with a cream rolled edge, and shirt is white base with blue and tan windowpane. Flash pic shows the colors best -- except for the flash, of course.
