You want to see nice stuff in TJ Maxx you go to the one in NYC on 6th Ave. between 18th and 19th. They have what they call the Runway. Pretty much all the big names are there in quantity. I don't think I saw Brioni but they had all the more famous big brands. Gucci, Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Ferragamo, Versace etc. I found an Armani collezioni blazer there for 80.

Can someone please help me ID this overcoat?? Green. Red cross buttons? Looks like there's some hand stitching throughout. Only markings are on the inside. They are "SGL TI 68" and "46 N" and an S with a + sign above it. Any idea what era is it from? Or where its from? Thanks o' great and powerful bragging forum peeps !!

I did grab a Tom Ford tie at a TJX (or maybe Marshalls - same thing) for super cheap.  Better deal than NM Last Call or Saks Off 5th...but they carry different stuff, and NMLC/SOF are pretty predictable as to what brands they will stock but you really never know what you'll find at TJX/Marshalls, at least in my experience.  Definitely deals to be had at all these places so I wouldn't say never shop TJX if you also have a NMLC nearby.

Nabbed a Fendi tie at TJX yesterday for $29.  I only buy at TJX/Marshalls when it's on 2nd or 3rd + markdown, otherwise - you're right - it's not much of a bargain.

Only Barneys outlet I've hit was in Orlando, where I grabbed a bunch of the better-looking current Zegna ties that were on sale for $39.  

Barneyswarehouse.com can be good during extra markdown times / holiday sales, but hit-or-miss at other times.  Can't wait to see what they do for the holidays, insofar as extra markdowns.

Any TJX with The Runway has the nicer stuff, and the Marshalls that is bound to be nearby will as well.  They cluster them together, generally in higher-income areas.  That's how I find the "good" Marshalls when I'm on a road trip - find the TJX that has The Runway and then find the nearest Marshalls.

No hat but...



After your dissertation on your theory of "one can never have enough flat front grey pants", you've convinced me to go on the hunt for more odd pants. I have a similar collection of khakis since they're required by my job's dress code but only two good pair of grey ff's. I was flipping through the rack of pants today and was two thirds of the way through the rack when a very large waisted gent in a sportcoat, cargo sweatpants and Nike slides(!) stepped into the end of the aisle, blocking me from finishing my hunt.
ffffuuuu.gif I slowed down my search to give him a chance to move along but he was fixated on something and he wasn't moving. I stood back for about a minute to see if he'd take the hint but finally said, "Excuse me." and squeezed past him and he was polite enough but he still didn't give any ground in front of where he was shopping. I figured I was screwed but I forced a spot to look at the last half foot of rack at the end.

Oh yeah.

Canali gray flat fronts 34X too short but there's plenty of fabric in the cuffs. They fit like 30's...noice!



A few other finds from the day, as well.

Any idea on the date? Anyone?

Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece HEAVY wool chalk window pane (Click to show)
40S...just my size and easily the heaviest, warmest suit I've ever found. Clean. barely used and two buttons on the sleeves. FULL canvas!


I also found this bit of militaria that will be going into the SL's emergency clothing kit in the trunk. (Click to show)
Nylon U.S. Navy black officer's jacket. 42R

Olde Skool Johnston and Murphy adjustable length shoe trees. (Click to show)

I know nothing about military stuff but I picked up this nice flight jacket. Can anyone decipher the tag? All I managed to do was check Completed Listings on ebay and google Propper International. Is there anything else anyone can add from looking at the tag?






Also, a bit of archaeology. I'll post this over at the Vintage thread too. This is the oldest Samuelsohn label I've ever seen, dated early '60s. It had a nice cut but the fabric was heavy. Years ago, after my grandfather passed away, I grabbed one of his old workwear jackets from the family farm. It was a great piece. But he had worn it day in day out, year after year, rain and shine. I couldn't get the stink out of it no matter what I did. This suit smelled like that jacket did.
