Yeah, prices have gone way up in the last couple of years.
Around here, we're looking at $5-12 for shirts, $30+ for suits (and since no one wears suits around here, it's damn near impossible to find anything more recent than 2000 or better than JAB), $2-4 for ties...
They also really mark up the "good stuff", meaning Natuica, PRL, etc... Burberry's also almost always marked way up. It's kind of annoying, but I can't really complain.
Scored a pair of fantastic AE McClain shells the other day, beautiful condition and in 10 D, no less, which is the best size, I think, to find other than your own. Within three days of this, I'd also found, in two separate trips, two pairs of AE tassel loafers, not ostentatious, one brown, one black, from the same donor, also in great shape. Each of the three pair, tax included, was $3.24.
As I'm walking up to the cash register with my shells, a new promo for the boutique store comes over the PA system, informing shoppers that they can find such coveted brands as Nautica and Aeropostale at the other store for prices as low as $9.99.
