Both a brag and a status report.
Today scored my first-ever Corneliani, a pair of trousers. Also a wool coat by Mackintosh (made in USA, straight from New England) and two what appear to be never tied tartan ties by Edinburgh Woolen Mills of Scotland, one in Royal Stewart, the other a blue pattern I have not before encountered. Out the door for less than $10.
Could take photos, but not the point--most of us see this sort of thing on a fairly regular basis. It is noteworthy because today was the grand opening of the new GW boutique shop, right next door to a regular mainline store where I made these finds. Prices at the boutique start at $9.99. They had nada, unless you like stuff from JAB or American Eagle or Lauren.
I had been worried that the boutique spelled the end of bargains from GW, which has always had fixed pricing at $3 per shirt, $5 per sport coat, $7 for suits, $3 for shoes and $6 or $8 for outer coats, depending on length. My worries multiplied because the impending opening coincided with a long dry spell. Turns out the dry spell and the opening of the boutique was, apparently, mere coincidence.
