Holy shit! Where did these come from as in these came out of the cuts!!! Where were these Jack Spades denim made in? They look very tapered.

The best part of this I cut off. "If your girlfriend says these start to smell, put them in the freezer overnight."

Barney's outlet has awesome shit, but it is still too expensive for me.

Oh wow! Ring spun selvedge by Jack Spades?! That's pretty cool! I've never seen these. Shoot, I put them in the freezer for at least 4 days to a week on any of my thrift finds. Is it your size?

That is certainly a nice find, and cheaper than the black label ties I've seen at Marshall's and Maxx around here. See below for my expanded reasoning... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Upscale Outlet Store:
-vast selection, a guarantee
-prices are usually cheaper than TJ Maxx when it comes to shirts, blazers, sweaters, coats, etc.

TJ Maxx:
-hit or miss
-when there is something good, there's not much, if any selection of colors or patterns
-prices, except for the occasional grail tie, are usually higher than last call

I remember someone posting pictures of some Kiton ties they found at TJ Maxx for either $29 or $39. That's an awesome deal, but the ties weren't particularly attractive, and the chances of finding a bunch of Kiton ties at a TJ Maxx on any given day is extremely slim. If I wanted a Kiton tie, I'd rather have 75 different ties in various colors and patterns to choose from and pay $65-70 and get exactly what I want. I'd probably make up the difference in gas when you consider how many TJ Maxx trips it would take to yield any Kiton tie (I've never seen one), let alone something in a staple pattern in mint condition. I've seen Tom Ford blazers at Last Call cheaper than Z Zegna at TJ Maxx.

Yeah, got them at TJ Maxx for a song. Do you literally just fold them up and put them in the freezer? Or put them in a freezer bag or something?

Beautiful shirts! Very interesting to see something made by them other than tailored clothing.


Today was an ok day. Nothing for me.

Donna Karan Collection handbag. Knew this was a nice bag when I picked it up, but had no clue retail was around $2,000! Used one of my 50% off coupons on this one. Paid $7.50 smile.gif







Shoes for the wife (or someone else's significant other if they don't fit)



Recent Canali white texture stripe dress shirt. 17 x 35

Congrats on your find, I love me some Incotex

I rarely see anything notable at TJMaxx around here, but saw some Jack Spade button downs for $39 the other day. MSRP $165. For realz? They are made in China (and feel like it).

Can someone make me a hat that says "I hit 5 stores today and all I found was this lousy Alfred Dunhill shirt (in ORANGE)"?

Kthxbye
