    This is just a fun thread I wanted to start for us bargain hunters out there:

    What's the best "price-to-value" deal that you've ever scored on brand new merchandise?

    Maybe you won an authentic Kiton suit on eBay for $25.00, or maybe a retailer kept marking down an Oxxford shirt until you picked it up for $9.00 on a 15% off Father's Day sale or something. Many of us probably have some incredible stories to tell...

    What's your best story?

    I managed to get a suit that cost abour $800 for less than $200, thanks to a 30%-off sale and several gift certificates that were given as gifts to my family. Brand-new, and it's probably the best suit I own.

    Ebay steals:

    Diamante Blue Super 150's Double breasted Kiton suit on ebay for.....300 bucks.

    Brand new Isaia suit....500 bucks.

    Brand new Belvest suit...400 bucks.

    RLPL Super 120's suit...300 bucks.

    Kiton 7-fold tie...20 bucks.

    Incotex slacks...30 bucks.

    keep in mind, this was in the early days of Ebay, bargains there are much harder to find now.

    i'm not much of a bargain hunter, but the best deal i've scored, percentage wise, was a pair of dress pants at the macy's men's store. i payed $20, marked down from $120. They were from the spring collection and i got them in late summer.

    hmmm....Haven't got many deals recently but Bluefly have provided me with many a bargain. I got a pair of the infamous Prada sport pants with the side zipper for under $100 (with $24.95 shipping to Canada). I also got a few Diesel items for about 75%-80% off retail. Holt Renfrew is usually pretty good at the end of a season. I got 2 french cut Burberry dress shirts for less than $150 CAD. Here's a pic of one of the shirts (It's blue and white instead of the Lilac pictured...Came with cool cufflinks too) [​IMG]

    FCS, I don't know of anything else in Toronto. In London there's a good place called Channers, they have pretty decent sales (www.channers.ca). As a warning, their website sucks and is way outdated.
