    Perhaps not a massive find, but still one I can use. BNWT Garment bag in pretty heavy lined canvas. YKK zippers, boatload of pockets. Probably a couple of years old, but one from the same maker in a similar style is like $350 today. Paid $15.

    Available, but possibly already dibbsed depending on measurements...unfortunately too small on me otherwise I'd probably keep it. It is dual vent, flat front pants, and working cuffs of which the 1st button appears that it is meant to be left undone and does not actually button, while the other buttons do....quite strange detail - I'll try to post a pic later....

    From doing a little research AED = UAE dirham, which is running about .25 US dollars at the moment. The tag was in the inside jacket pocket, and it appears to have very little wear making me think it probably hasn't seen any drycleaning cycles as of yet.....

    I've seen a few shirts and maybe ties from Massimo Dutti, but this was the 1st suit I've run across and really didn't know too much about the line - I did discover they are owned by the same parent company as Zara as caseyfud mentioned but I wasnt really sure....
    Thanks for the info!!

    Sadly I don't have a pic as it's long since been sold, but this is what the label looked like. When pressed between an ancient licensed label and this, you'll know which one to grab. :)

    Not quite astounding price wise, but....
    Oxxford Crest, 2 button, side vented, ESCORIAL wool suit, mid-grey with a nice spaced pinstripe. Jacket fits perfect, functional cuffs. The pants need to be slimmed in the legs, otherwise its pretty tits.
    I do not know if it has been worn, it is in perfect mint/new shape. Con original Oxxford hanger.

    Tip: Consignment stores have discounting ability. I had never asked and always paid what they asked. I had seen this suit there for months. I asked, she said depending on how long it had been there she could do up to half off. It was tagged at $250.00. I said, if you can half off this, Im in. DONE

    $125.00 at a local consignment store.

    This feels like a trap, but I'll reply anyway--that looks like a pass (unless it has a Canali size/fabric content tag).

    Here's the Donna Karen I picked up yesterday. Some of the softest cashmere I've ever handled. It was cheap and too beautiful to pass. Besides the jetted pockets, it looks pretty recent. Still not sure on the maker though.

    Also a minty BB slim fit in my size. I always scoop these for myself.

    Now why would I, being the nice guy I am, try to trap anyone here?

    True, but they are super cheap and I am in need. My money was just returned after pending for, what?, two weeks? Oh well. They didn't respond to my email inquiry either...

    Does anyone know if this older T Pink is considered better or lower quality than the newer stuff? Passed on a pretty nice condition plain white shirt with that label because it had crazy outsized arms (the tag even noted it, I think it was 15x36 or something), but was my first time seeing that label IRL.

    I don't specifically know about this one, but it is usually better. I picked up two for myself. Reinforced gussets, mother of pearl buttons, split yoke, barrel cuffs, tailored fit, nicer fabric, etc.
