A Marshalls I went to had the exact same tuxedo, but it wasn't on sale. And a bunch of other really nice stuff too. Even a solid navy Brioni suit. Here are some pictures I snagged quickly...

My wife is hating me for selling this one, but it really is just a tad too small...even though I wear a 44.

I regularly see clothing from those names at Marshall's here in Atlanta.  A while back one had two racks full of Corneliani ID jackets.

FYI, I used to work at TJ Maxx and I don't believe there's such a thing as a final markdown. Once an item is put on clearance, it should be marked down further every sub markdown cycle until it sells, so it might be worth checking in on that tux to see if it goes down any more.

Damn.

An inch of snow in VA = 2 hour delayed opened. So, of course I had to feed the beast. My first Schott. I'd rock the shit out of this if it was a man's and my size. Right out it's going to the girlfriend, but if she doesn't want it I'll make it available here.

Schott red peacoat. Woman's size 8. In fantastic shape. Hardly any wear to the wool. Pics taken in my work parking lot with the jacket hung on the rack of the Jeep in the parking space next to me.

The Brioni, RLPL and Kiton stuff will never get below $650 (unless there's something lower than yellow-tag pricing that I don't know about; maybe they continue to reduce these things until they sell), which wouldn't be too out of the question if the stuff ever fit. I did almost pick up a nice BB Golden Fleece that was rebranded as "Full Canvas" for Marshalls sale purposes for $250, but couldn't pull the trigger.

 

The only discount store stuff I've every actually kopped were a Drakes grenadine and a Barbera cashmere knit. I didn't even pick up the RLPL shepherd's check for $80, which I probably should have.  

 

 

EDIT: I see casey has answered my question.

 

What's the employee discount like? Should I get a weekends-only job?

I'd pull the trigger on a BBGF for $250 if it was for me. The ones I have that I've been able to acquire from here are really nice. I'd love to own a new one.

The one Marshalls here had some RL Black Label & Purple Label ties a few weeks back. And a couple of the TJ Maxx had the ties a year or so ago.

I was back and forth about it, and ended up just going with my gut....it was gone the next time I went.

I don't know what the deal is with that rule. They didn't ask me for proof on my fit, though I don't know if that's because they forgot or because they don't really enforce the rule.

I was in one in the DC area recently and found a lesser amount of similar quality stuff. First time I've ever been into Marshall's and found decent clothing (shoes yes; clothes no). Prices were similarly insane, but seems too much volume all at once to be a coincidence; must be a time of year thing (post-holiday/year end clearout), or maybe a Nordstrom's/Neiman went out of business somewhere and they liquidated the inventory.

It's possible they reserve the rule for extreme cases -- someone shows up in a RLPL cashmere overcoat, Kiton suit and Lobb shells, they're going to start asking questions. Edit: Or maybe as a deterrent to it becoming "undemocratized." Plus, I'm probably overblowing the consequence too -- you'd probably just be quietly DQ'd.

IMO I wouldn't say the discount at TJ Maxx is worth getting a job there; it's only 10%, they bump it up to 20% every once in a while. The plus side is, the low discount kept me from wasting money while I was there.
