    Exactly!! Need to know how much the balloon would be at the end at a fix payment per month. I think I got it working correct, but, sent you a PM Matt. Hope you don't mind? [​IMG]

    Went to the Sally.

    Bought a NWT Ermenegildo Zegna shirt (not my size, although it's presently on hold for a particular member):

    And, yeah - the thing was made in Turkey. Nothing to be excited about.

    Also bought an old, twill, Gant shirt in my size; very colorful!:

    ...Now *ahem* what do I wear that with? ^^;

    I left a made in England, Saks Fifth Avenue overcoat (material by Crombie). A true cause to weep, for it had been devoured by the moth!

    Also found a new, 3B houndstooth SC, but I didn't recognize the label. The label was blue and had 'James...' Hm. My memory fails me. 'James something' as the designer. Below was written 'Couture', which usually means the item's a joke. Willing to return for a second look.

    Otherwise, I didn't find anything beyond the typical thrift-store merch.

    If you make a payment of $200 each month for the six months then I think you will have a principal of $9,137.51 outstanding at then end.

    I might be completely wrong though despite the two decimal precision of my estimate.:)

    Let us not derail, but pretty sure that's not the payoff. (That's the principal remaining immediately following the payment in month 6. Assuming payoff on day 1 of month 7, you have to pay the interest for month 6.)

    PM'd Brian. Let's save any future discussion for PM.

    I've actually seen a new Brioni about a year and a half ago at mens store that was liquidating inventory 80% for sub $500. My whole point you can learn a lot from this thread, and pick stuff up along the way.

    Sounds suspicious. Did you get a receipt?

    I've learned a lot along the way. I wore a wholly thrifted ensemble to a formal on the weekend, and it looked good. But I was conscious that the $500-$2,500 Brioni would've looked much better. I don't know if that's much of a lesson, but I know that I'll be leaning on guys like you to pick up those 80%-off suits and flip them to me on the 'Net.

    WGP and I did a trade in the parking lot of Champs Restaurant one time. We were joking if anyone drove by they might think were we doing a drug deal.
