    Hit the Maxx today and picked up this scarf. I don't know much about the brand but it was a really quality item. Also, the Maxx employees were beginning to mark down clearance items. PRL cashmere sweaters went from $99 to $69, Oxxford pants went from $99 to $59, Dior scarves and ties went from $64 to $49 and there were some other mark downs as well. Just a heads up!

    ^ Very nice find. That is indeed a quality item. How much did you end up paying for it, if you don't mind me asking??

    4 Rembrandt etchings, $600 each. No idea if they were real, but they all sold in less than a day.

    No Rembrandts here, however I did come across a very nice Burberry dress shirt in white with french cuffs. Thickest MOP buttons I have ever seen. 16 33 crappy cell pics PM if interested.

    I waited for the guy to mark it down before I picked it up, it ended up being $10 even.

    Just saw something on PAWN stars about those rembrandt etchings. He did about 300 of them. However, after about 100 prints, the plates that are used become worthless, because they have been modified due to wear and tear.

    I've done this from time to time. Found a pair of Florsheim Imperial Longwings several months ago that were in pretty good shape to begin with. But since I have several pairs of shoes in the same shade decide to take them in and add a half lug sole to them for the hell of it. I figured an $8 shoe with a $60 resole was still a better quality shoe than I could get for $68 new these days. Plus they have a lot more character.

    I saw a Johnstons scarf at the TJ Maxx here in Albuquerque and it was $32.

    You reminded me of something that makes the larger sizes fit. I usually try to select shoes in nearly new condition so the footbeds are not usually crushed out of usable condition but I DO use aftermarket insoles. When the shoe is too big, I enjoy gellin' like a felon! They take up the slack AND make the shoes a bit more comfortable on the soles of my feet.

    A few good things this evening. First I found a staple shirt in my size. Then I found a pretty awesome suit by The Men's Store for Sears. It fits me save the tailoring that shortened the sleeves and pants. The pattern is very hard to describe...once my camera battery finishes charging I will upload pictures and let you guys take a look. It might be atrocious. It might be awesome. Either way, I couldn't resist.

    I also found some Zanella pants in gray. Size 33 waist and the inseam, at first measure, is 32 inches. They have some interesting pleats on them as well. There was a navy pair that I left because they had a very small but "disturbing" stain on the leg and I didn't know if it would come out. Again, I'll upload some pictures as soon as I can. The pants are available if anyone's interested.

    Here's one for all your Marshalls experts: Do the yellow tags really mean final sale? I'm waiting for a few things to be marked down a bit more, but I was told by a sales duder that if the tag is yellow, that's as far as it will go. True?

    I also found (and left) a three-button, single vent Harris Tweed sport coat in 40L. I can't remember the exact brand, but it was really heavy--heavier than any Harris Tweed I've found. The only odd thing was the fact that it only has one cuff button on each sleeve. If anyone is interested I can go back tomorrow and see if it's still there.
