    Just bought a brioni sportscoat with a price tag from Neimen Marcus of $2145 for $150. My god it's nice and I don't even need to tailor it! [​IMG]

    It's moments like that when one realizes how much money one wastes when buying garments even near ticket price. Well done, sir.

    Then again, it's not exactly reasonable to expect to buy products below cost.

    Not purple or green--but white. It actually is a beautiful coat. Just a filene's basement in D.C.

    Which filene's metro center? Did they have more and by chance in 38R or 40S?

    i think i might have seen those. the ones at the store i was in (not DC) were there for so long the shoulders had sun discoloration where they had sat on hangers for what must have been years, so they were essentially unusable. hope yours was in better condition!

    I think I've seen one of these as well some sort of a blend material, bamboo or cotton blend or some linen? It wasn't a standard looking sportcoat some quasi looking thing. It was marked down to 229 or something there were two but my personal judgment was I didn't want to waste time flipping it on sf as it didn't look desirable for anything more than its price. Retail was like 2100 or something as well.
