100% positive! madness.

 

they also have BB shirts for 29.99.. LOL. Cole Haan Shoes for 34.99. It's a trend of late.  So who knows how long this pricing strategy will stick around.

It's been a while since I posted. Hope everyone is well. Had a good trip in London and The Netherlands. Also thanks to simonc for giving me some tips on thrifting in London. The last morning i was there I snuck out of the hostel to do some thrifting, but somehow ended up at the Oxfam that only sells books. No worries though becaus somehow I got lost leaving Borough High Street to Somewhere in west kensington, and then literally toured London for miles on foot walking past imperial college, up to Kensington, past Hyde park, and ending up near those Greco-Roman Apollo gates that are at the end of the queens park I think. Well worth getting lost for.

In any case, I've graduated and start work at a pretty large law firm this summer (V20). Since I'll also be headed off to LS in the fall (Michigan, any Wolverines lurking on SF? icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif), I'd like another staple suit before I treat myself to my first "real" suit towards the end of the summer or possibly at the beginning of 2L OCI. Thankfully my firm is mostly business casual, but as im still unsure of whether i want litigation or transactional I'd like to be prepared for court appearances, client meetings, etc. I know we've got a few lawyers, associates and partners and from what I understand I can't really wear half of my suits, either because they aren't conservative at all,or the color isn't traditionally conservative (charcoal greyish brown D&G, charcoal grey Southwick with subtle pin stripes), so I'm hoping someone happens to have a 36/38R suit in charcoal gray or navy blue. Normally my waist is a 29-30, but some 36 jackets fit small (I'd like to think lifting my Wheaties have paid off), so I may just have to get a 38s pants tailored down. Thankfully I'm pretty sure at least one of my suits will be fine for events and formal outings, but I'd like to have another one by the time I start next week or maybe slightly after.

So,can anyone hook a brother up? I'd appreciate a proxy or a sale that won't decimate my wallet before starting work as I won't get paid for a couple of weeks, and also could really use all the damn money I can for 1L year lol. I've also got one jacket I've been debating allowing myself to trade as I got it from Beck a while back and really love it, but haven't had a chance to get it tailored yet and really am struggling justifying keeping a Purple Label SC when I need a basic suit. Pics below, but I'd definitely prefer to buy or proxy. Ive got some other things but I've sold or given away most items I think you guys would be interested in.

My god this jacket is sweet. Maybe I can just convince them that suits are outdated and it's all about the ticker ticket SCs this summer. Gents...there's a revolution to NY coming.



But to be safe I'll grab that staple if anyone's got it:D

Bet you can get a 346 suit this w/e at the outlets new for not much more than that. Must be some good stuff whoever priced that stuff was on because they are high in more ways than one.

I recently wandered into a place that had crazy prices like this and sort of involuntary let out an audible 'geeeez!' right next to the Manager. He walked a few steps towards me and asked "nice suits, aren't they?" to which I responded "Yes, have you sold one yet?" He didn't appreciate that....

BB Outlets (at least the one near me) is 40% off everything this weekend. I'm going to stop by it and the PRL one and see if I can find something good.
