@Harvitz

Wellington boots you mean, perhaps. Not cowboy. The closest thing Western wear would have to this would be Ropers.

Incredible find BTW

I went to TJ Maxx to pick a "reward" with my daughter for her reading of 20 books (she is 6), naturally, I wandered over to the men's section and scored a pair of cotton/cashmere cords by Incotex -- MSRP $745, my price $79.99....It was the first time I have ever purchased something for my self from TJ Maxx...

It was sweet...nod[1].gif

Everyone always seems to find higher end stuff at TJMaxx. The only thing I have ever found is Polo Ralph Lauren, wouldnt even call that great.

Congrats on your find, I love me some Incotex

I think it's heavily dependant on area.

+1 to this, man. There's some PRL, some Lucky. And 7 jeans. That's as good as it gets. And a single BB Irregulars tie that's been there for months. smile.gif

I find that the Marshall's and TJMax stores in this area vary considerably depending which part of town they're in. I've see Brioni and Charvet at some. Others top out at PRL...

Same here. Once I found "the good Winners" (Canada's version of TJ) here in town I suddenly had reason to go. Stopped in one in downtown Vancouver last week and saw several Corneliani SCs, Buttero double monks, etc.

Wow! That's awesome.

Is there a such thing as good Pierre Cardin? Found a DB blazer with the same label shown below. Felt like cashmere or a blend.

Stain Removal Experiment

My mom sent me this link to a DIY stain remover a while ago, and I finally got around to trying it out over the weekend: http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/2011/11/goodbye-to-yellow-armpit-stains.html

2 parts hydrogen peroxide, 1 part Dawn, and a bit of baking soda. Mix it up, scrub it in, let it sit, then launder.

I found it worked as well as The Method (vinegar, Oxyclean, etc.) and was easier and quicker. It took care of collar/cuff stains completely. Yellow underarm stains were almost totally gone on the shirts where I scrubbed the mixture in, and on a few where I just rubbed it on with my fingers, it still lightened them quite a lot.

I mixed up a 3-cup batch of the stuff, used half, and stored the rest in a squeeze bottle in the linen closet for next time.

If someone has the link to the stain removal thread that has been mentioned here a few times, let me know and I'll post this there too.

True vintage Cardin, not licensed. Lets see pictures.

The TJ Maxx here has some good stuff, but it's drastically overpriced for a discount store. If you have a decent outlet mall near you (specifically, NM Last Call), TJ Maxx is obsolete.

Damn, the only label I've coped from Marshall's is Billy Reid. I need to start looking harder and more often...
