    Interested as well. I have really long arms, though, so I'd be curious on the sleeve lengths on at least 1 or 2. Cheers.

    $80. Double clearance. I about lost my shit after I looked it over for about 5 minutes and discovered there were no tears, holes, rips or discolorations. Brand new condition, 100% cash.

    I left behind a LP 95% cotton, 5% cash button down with cream bengal stripes for $99, a LP 100% cash navy turtleneck for $149 and a BC 100% cash SC for $300.

    Wow, that is amazing! I keep coming up short. I was at TJ Maxx today and saw a ton of the same Valentino ties, all with multiple pulls.

    In addition to finding the Golden Fleece SC, I forgot to add that I also found a wonderful Samuelsohn SC tagged 46 with super 130s fabric. Not the same as the Brioni people keep finding, but still pretty nice and good quality. Good finds everyone!

    Sure, here are some full shots. Sorry about the crap quality. iPhone camera is all I have at the moment. Also, just as a heads up, I plan on keeping this one. Fits way too well. If anyone is interested in the turtleneck, SC or button down PM me and I'll try and go back to grab them tomorrow. Proxy for no extra cost, just pay shipping.

    If you were at the Goodwill in Northern Virginia and saw a man sitting on the ground, holding the beautiful blue Corneliani 6x4 DB jacket and weeping uncontrollably, I apologize. You see, I had just finished looking at every stitch of clothing in every section of the store, to include electronics and furniture, to see if I could find the matching pants.

    :fu:

    Very true. I had to sell my grail sports coat I got at Marshalls from Brunello Cucinelli. Luckily I scored a BC cashmere sweater from there the next day.
