    Apologies for the double post, but I think this got lost due to moderation.

    Any of the size small or 36R/S persuasion? If so, would anyone be willing to proxy me one? Thought about getting a Gant jacket during the Bonobos cyber monday deal, but they were sold out of all the smalls.

    That's interesting. I just read an article about some Bloomingdales closing in the NoVa area. Wonder if any of their stuff will make its way into the TJ Maxx/Marshalls around here.

    It was on clearance for $169.00. The original tag read $498.00 and I am not sure what the compare at price was. Competitive price, but too rich for my blood.

    Yeah, the size tag looks like I should know it - if anyone recognizes that'd be cool. Its a nice suit, I may pick it up anyway. . Thanks for looking!

Consolation prices EZ shirts x3, lorenzini shirt, BB cable knit merino polo, Gant Hopsack, RRL NWT jeans, florsheim wingtips in my size, hickey freeman italian sport shirt and partially lined plaid blazer. I'll put pics up later tonight.

    I went to TJ Maxx and there was some decent stuff there, none of which I got. Navy Purple Label tie, gold paisley Purple Label tie, a completely unstructured Made in Italy PRL linen blazer, and a PRL dress shirt that was unlike any Polo shirt I've seen before, with awesome, thick mother of pearl buttons, a spread collar and European size tag.

    Oh, and mixed with all the cheap cashmere was a Johnstons of Elgin scarf.

    Day of near misses today.

    - Oxxford for Saks d/b suit jacket. Navy with silver windowpane. 6/1 button. No vent. No pants.
    - Oxxford Pure Camelhair sportcoat. From the same donor as the Oxxford suit haul a few weeks ago. Different store. Cuff edges were worn to hell. Something tells me I missed more Oxxford here. :brick:
    - Brooks Brothers navy blazer with logo BB brass buttons. Fairly recent. Just wasn't feeling it.


    I did get a vintage, never used ice cream maker from Sears for $10. My wife has been bugging me for one for a couple years. Also scored a pair of never worn Ferragamo brown pebble grain lace ups. Size 9 D if anyone is interested.
