It was sweet...
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...

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
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.
Thrift fit. These are still ok right? This is the last time I wear this before it gets sent somewhere for consignment or to the bay. Love the jacket, hate the way the pants drape. Pre-war dated I think from 39', stated on the tag, tweed suit.

Wow! That's awesome.
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.
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 If you have a decent outlet mall near you (specifically, NM Last Call), TJ Maxx is obsolete.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...
Hmmm, this is interesting...Can we get some pics?
