Decent score at TJ Maxx today. PRL pure cashmere sweater/sweatshirt. Retail tag had the price at $495...on clearance for $59. I've actually been eying this for almost month. Before it went on sale, it was priced at $129. Waited a couple weeks and it was down to $99. Then today it was at $59. It looks like a very elegant gray crewneck sweatshirt. Also got a RL RLX zip up vest for $29. Retail was $195. And lastly a PRL chunky shawl collar cardigan...it is a mix of silk, wool, and cashmere and the tag indicated hand knit. Retail was $245 and it was on clearance for $29.

I was in California on business last week and looked forward to hitting up some shops there but as things turned out, no dice, too busy to do more than collapse in the hotel room at night. Oh well, made up for it with a great week here. A nice, new J Crew 1/4 zip navy sweater for $7.99, NWT Burberry green/grey plaid scarf for $2.99, Samuelsohn brown and rust windowpane sportcoat for $12 and a Pringle 100% Scottish cashmere sweater for $5 at Value Village earlier in the week. Tonight, a like new Samuelsohn suit in a solid navy nailhead Italian cloth, perfect fit, $35, a black pinstripe Zegna Soft suit, also a perfect fit, a whopping $49 at Value Village and a brown Canali sportcoat, in Super 120's at Salvation Army for $7.99. This may be the softest sportcoat I've ever seen. I have to have the sleeves lengthened a bit but otherwise a very nice fit.

By a mile its Van Heusen above the waist and Dockers below

You see a lot of Geoffry Beene as well. Also seen a ton of Haggar.

Yesterday, stopped in Marshalls, after a trip to Kaps and The Andover Shop, and found a very nice navy blue Brooks Brothers Makers repp tie for a whopping $13 and a RLBL Narrow Navy repp tie for $19. They also had a Zegna (!) for $49 but the color/pattern wasn't that great.

Found a beautiful grey flannel Aquascutum suit at VV yesterday, but, alas, two sizes too big. Also several once-nice ties caught my eye, but every decent one in the bunch was either stained or damaged.

Picked up a Barney's co-op v-neck sweater-$1.50 (sale today), Brooks Brothers tie and Robert Talbott tie $1.50 each. I saw a Hermes tie for $1.99 in perfect condition. I didn't pick it up because I wasn't sure about authenticity. After comparing my phone pics to sf pics, I'm headed back tomorrow and crossing my fingers hoping that it's still there.

Yet another decent venture yesterday: 1. Paul Stuart (by Samuelsohn) grey pinstripe suit - my size & mint condition - $30 2. Canali dress pants NWOT - $10 3. Vintage Oxxford 100% cashmere sportjacket - $16 4. Brooks Brothers (not sure if AS or CJ) brogued oxfords - $15 5. Church's black pebble grain blucheres - $7 6. Fratelli Rossetti cognac pebble grain monkstraps - $11 Came across a St. Andrew's suit jacket (grey with blue pinstripe) but couldn't find the pants. Alas ...

I met the man who donated five (he donated more, but I only found 5) recent Isaia suits (one NWOT) that I purchased last year. Really great, generous guy. He's the president of a reinsurance company. He also a big sponsor to local things like the YMCA, art benefits, etc.....

Damn, you people are so frickin' lucky to live in such cities that have all this great designer stuff at the mighty Double V (Value Village). I went to VV last week and I found absolutely NOTHING with a designer label. All I saw was GAP and saw other small-time department store labels. Their sportcoat selections were all at least 14 years old or even older. This really doesn't surprise me, though, because the city I live in only has three high-end menswear stores (national chains) and three privately owned (family owned and operated) stores.
