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

    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...
    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?

    Wow! New Lobb boots for $40?!?! :slayer: :slayer:
    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 :) [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Shoes for the wife (or someone else's significant other if they don't fit) [​IMG] Recent Canali white texture stripe dress shirt. 17 x 35 [​IMG]

    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).

    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.

    There was a Brooks Brothers glenplaid suit jacket with pants that couldn't be found made by St. Andrews. I'll be back later in the week to see if they turn up.


    And now a little something for me ....
