Yes, you win. Sweet find.
Wow, patch pockets AND handwarmer pockets... and pick stitching on the lapel! Nice. That's pretty unique.
You got this for less than the RLPL ties at my local TJ Maxx!!
Seriously though, amazing score! I'm surprised that this stuff gets marked down that far!
A pictoral followup to stuff I snagged this past weekend:
Some Tyrwhitt shirts
Canali SC, Brown/Gray Windowpane, Super 120s, Cupro lining, for Saks. No idea on the canvassing, I think maybe half?
20.5" pit to pit
33" arm length
Gieves & Hawkes SC, Tan/Beige/Brown Houndstooth/Birdseye (?) Windowpane
70% Silk/30% Wool
41R 2 button
20.5" pit to pit
33" arm length
My first Saville Row piece...dunno if it's bespoke or if it was part of a suit. Bummer about the small stain in the right sleeve lining, but I think the cleaners could take it out?
Burberrys 2 piece suit that I mistakenly announced as Prorsum. Nevertheless, still quite nice.
Light gray pinstripe SC
34" arm length
Trousers are 32 x 33 w/ 1.25" to let out
9" leg opening
11" knee width
This last one is a YSL Made in France. I believe it is a 3 piece suit, minus the pants, which I couldn't find anywhere in the store. I haven't heard much buzz about YSL, especially not the mid-80s, 90s suits. This one isn't particularly offensive, is vented, and has a nipped waist for a more tailored look. Any thoughts on pants to find to make it a complete suit?
Oh yeah, and this Barbera FC 16 1/2
Could anyone help me decipher that Gieves & Hawkes tag...I'd like to know if I did in fact miss the pants...maybe the same with the Canali.
Man, does this thread move too fast. Just chiming in to say holy shit to those Common Projects someone found -- because I think no one else did.

COME AT ME BRO
AWESOME. You're definitely in the lead.
One thing I will caution is the price tag seems to be taped. I assume you'll flip regardless, but I have run into this problem when returning items to Marshall's in the past. On at least two occasions they have scanned the tag and come back saying either it's the incorrect tag for the item or that the tag has been deactivated.
Apparently there are some people out there that walk around switching tags on Marshall's merchandise and screwing people out of being able to return stuff. Then they take the more expensive tags and either attached them to cheap stuff and return or purchase the expensive item for cheap and then re-attach when they get home, only to return the item for the difference. One SA said they arrested a guy who took over $2k out of their register over a 3 month period by switching tags. Now their policy, at least at my location, is to not accept merchandise with damaged or tampered-with tags, even if you purchased the item in that condition. Just a PSA there.
Picked up some Allen Edmonds Fairfax shoes in black 10.5 B, is there a B width? Maybe they said D, but I don't have the shoes in front of me. Were marked @ $20, but they gave them to me for $10 since one of them was developing a hole in the sole. Will need resoling. But they fit me ok(!)
-Picked up a navy canali LS casual shirt. My first canali casual. It has that hidden button under the collars, nice. I'm keeping this since it's my size.
-Got some Navy Paul Smith flat front pants. Wool. 31 or 32 waist. Looking to trade for some earth toned flat front Zanellas or similar.
-J Press 3 roll 2. Fit me a little big. Maybe a 44R. Split vent. Charcoal, I think. Are all Jpress's fused? This one was.
-a mess of Hugo Boss dress shirts. Looked nicely finished but I don't know the quality of this brand overall.
Will post pix of my purchases tonight.
who found common projects?
Newer JPress is generally fused but Pressidential lines may be half canvassed. There is interest in them regardless especially in those sizes. I like them for example
Ouch for that seller
^ Why Ouch? If they are different sizes then it doesn't make a difference. TJ Maxx/Marshalls will never have a collection of stuff in different sizes and even the great stuff that is being found now is in very short supply. I said I'm not inspired by these great finds to stalk my nearest Marshalls and I stick to it. The chance of finding something in a normal size, color, price is hard to come by.
Not that his find would directly compete with the listing, more that an identical item is at Marshall's for less than a third of his asking price. I just think the seller on B&S would have been just as happy to not see this find surface.
That said I'm sure the OP will get a solid amount (certainly more than $70) on le bay.
