    It's more than just shortening the sleeves... Maybe $40-50? Worth it to be able to leave your cuff unbuttoned just because you can [​IMG]

    Marshalls/TJMaxx continues to deliver! Common thread seems to be that all the stuff is priced too high to be a good deal... until it hits clearance. Not a ton of this stuff really seems to be "amazing resale potential" territory so much as "great buy for yourself if you can afford it" territory... with occasional exceptions like that Marinella ;x

    Are you saying you can get sleeves shortened for $12? I guess I pay $12 to shorten ONE sleeve.

    By the way, for those of you who noticed the Cambridges I found a couple of weeks ago, they are now for sale on the BST - see link below.

    Got it. Maybe not being able to read people's posts properly is another sign it is time to go to bed.

    I got a bunch of stuff at the thrift today - the only thing bragging about is that I used it the way it is actually intended to be used. Everything we picked up was an item we actually needed and would have paid full price for within a week or two otherwise, AND my kids (5 and 7) were jazzed about the things they got.

    Picked up two pairs of these at Marshalls today. What do we think?

    Luciano Barbera slippers/moccasins - black suede, 100% cashmere lining. Wilkes Bashford tags.

    Little too snug for me, but wow are they comfortable.
