It's in virtually pristine shape. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




















This is clothing 101. Yes, it's a woman's. Hope the store takes returns.

As you are concerned, I will alleviate that stress: Yes, the store does take returns, for as much as 14 days after the date of purchase as long as the tags are still on.

 
I got caught up because it was in the mens section and amongst a bunch of other formal wear, and I went tag-blind. But yes, you are right, I am still new to this.:)

That's very common. And also why you need to check the women's suit/blazer/outerwear sections.

A few shirts - this is actually over the course of several weeks, usually bringing home one or maybe two on a trip - I'm not like you volume guys!  In the course of that several weeks I've also picked up a mainline Michael Kors shirt (Project Runway fan :embar:), 2 pairs of Zegna pants, 2 pairs of cotton Faconable pants, and 4 pairs of corduroy Faconable (none of which seemed worthy enough for pictures).   Bought two Zegna ties (even though I rarely actually wear a tie - figure on the rare occasion, it might as well be a good tie!)  Also saw my first local hiked up thrift pricing in a Goodwill ($25 for Zanella trousers & $150 for an Armani suit that someone appeared to have done landscaping in).  My local Goodwills are inconsistent *except* for recognizing 7 for All Mankind, which I just don't get. 

 

 

Vineyard Vines, Psycho Bunny (Click to show)

 

 

Stefano Ricci, Lorenzini (Click to show)
 
Do people seriously pay $600 retail for Stefano Ricci shirts?  I mean this one is nice and all, and not as outrageous as others are apparently, I'm just not seeing it.  I damn near left it because I mentally confused the name with Evan Piccone.

 

 

Zegna (s/s), Zegna (l/s) (Click to show)
 
The purple Zegna is actually somewhat old and is why I went searching for this thread in the first place.  I found it in a thrift store, and said "hmm..never heard of this brand but made in Italy so why not" and that started me on the road that led me this thread and learning about what I should (and more importantly should not) be looking for.

Passed a Hermes scarf (looked real but $150) and a Harmont & Blaine jacket (outerwear made in Italy). Couldn't find much information about H&B. Anyone had success with them?

I also feel fairly certain there was another SF member working those racks. Cincinnati thrifters, were any of you at the Goodwill on Markbreit around 9:45 this morning? Dude seemed to know what he was doing.

J Crew "Harris Tweed" does really well.... The tweed suit should do decent also..

Sadly, mine is not Harris Tweed. Still looks fantastic, hopefully the made in USA bit will help bump the price.

Also, congrats on the sale!

I need to apologize for my outburst last night on a fellow forum member. His statement were on point.  And my outburst were not caused by him. Or any other forum member. I was just having a bad evening for no seeing my kids.  So, I apologize to everyone.

 

point dexter.
