    Saw a dude buy a Brioni overcoat the other day at Marshall's for $999 straight up. Weird world when SFers find enough stuff to justify a grand at Marshalls.

    On a separate note, has anyone noticed further mark-downs recently? I was waiting out their post-Christmas stocking before I went back in.

    That was the only time in the world such a find will be made. Don't beat yourself up about it.

    Then PM me!! If it doesn't fit Achilles. I have heard he has difficulty fitting stuff around his heels. Some story about not being dipped there :D

    Not much luck but found a nice Zegna red/blue microcheck casual shirt, quite new looking with cleaner tags. 9 bucks.
    There were a series of PINK shirts, exactly my size but collars were frayed. One wonders why people have to wear their stuff to the ground :sly:

    Do you know if the yellow tag is the final markdown price? If I recall correctly, I've seen yellow tags on top of red tags.

    I know this isn't an amazing find (far from it), but I figure somebody on here might want it. It's a BB 346 trench in perfect condish, but if that's not thread-worthy in even the slightest bit, I'll delete this post and never mention it again. I just don't want to get e-yelled at, as I did almost immediately with my first post.

    It's a little big in the chest and long for me (I usually wear a 40S).

    Hmm, not sure. I've only ever seen red on top of red, but yellow might be the do-all-end-all. This is enough to make me investigate haha.

    Guy at Marshals said that yellow was final clearance. But then he also said that it might drop further but it would take a long time. I'm not sure I really trust him :p
