    Amazing find.

    I hoped you resisted the hideous Verrsace ties they seem to think will sell at $80.

    Is this a good price? Shirt is mint condition with no defects as far as I can tell.

    Saw only a few Kiton and Brioni dress shirts at this price all in huge sizes (except for the one I bought). There were a bunch of Gitman Bros. dress shirts on clearance for $15. I managed to snag a few.

    If I am not mistaken, some of them had Wilkes Bashford tags on them. It seems that Marshalls/TJ Maxx might be buying from the same source Filene's Basement used to stock the Vault section.

    Where? in marshalls? I wonder if this is a one off thing or will marshalls have a yearly stock of this stuff... obviously they won't have a range of stuff but a few items here and there is nice.

    It's time for a dedicated TJMaxx and Marshalls hard target search in the NoVA area.

    Had a decent week. Picked up 6 Brooks Brothers ties of various stripeage that add nicely to the collection. Also got a Massimo Bizzochi, an Altea and a purple Versace that I'm gonna try and work some magic on to clean up. If it doesn't work I'm out 2 bucks. Found a nice slim fit Romeo Gigli shirt also. Not a hugely well known brand but I remember seeing their ads all the time when I lived in Italy.

    For trade, I got a Zegna SC (Italian 56) in a blue and gold small check and a hand made Tom James SC in 44, blue with light blue windowpane. Both are in very good condition and both are up for trade. Pics will be PMed on request but they are crappy Iphone pics so keep that in mind.

    On another note, I was hoping for some feedback from y'all. I also have my eye on a grey with crimson windowpane blazer at Marshall's. It's 90/10 150s wool/cash, made by Ermenegildo Zegna in Switzerland, and is marked down to $420. Is it worth it for that? I know Zegna isn't mind-blowing but it's a nice blazer and fits great. Thanks in advance.

    Favorite tie from this weekend thrifting. Not sure when/where I'm going to wear this but really don't want to part with it. It's slim also at only 3" wide

    +1. Whats this, I don't think Zegna is mind blowing? I think Zegna is up there with the best... Why not? I have some Zegna SC and they are fantastic.
