all that stuff for $400.....good job, dude.

I always make myself feel really good by adding up the retail value of all the items.

Thanks. Indeed... bargain shopping is fun with clothing.

A combination of Nordstrom Rack, Neiman Marcus Last Call, eBay, and Marshalls. Oh and, of course, the Buy and Sell forum here.

The shoes and Hickey Freeman were new. Others are either lightly used or NWOT. Reputable sellers and all that, so I'm not too worried.

Haha, thanks man. Wow.. yeah, if I did that I'd be quite high. Not sure the retail on a few of the items, but I can probably ballpark it.

do you always recklessly throw money around like that?
you should have also gotten at the least an overcoat,a suit, and another pair of shoes.

what if he doesn't need another suit, overcoat, or pair of shoes.

the ultimate smart thing to do is obviously saving the $400.....but that's not why we're here.

I have two suits and don't have many occasions to wear them. I have a peacoat as an overcoat (it doesn't get very cold here for very long), and I have several pairs of shoes.
