    What's the difference between these two tags? Is the red one just newer/nicer than the pink?

    Oh ... and does Marshalls still do yellow-tag clearance? Does anyone know the Marshalls markdown situation?

    Wow... Just caught up with 50 bajillion pages.... Haven't been around for a week and a half! This thread moves faster than light! Haha! Can't say I've found anything in a long time... been looking, haven't found shit. Other than the glorious amount of shit one passes up on a daily basis (LL Bean, Tasso Elba, John Ashford... etc). As for the 30,000th post... coming across the "edit" before seeing what he really said, was a little strange. But shouldn't the 50,000th post be the most anticipated? Just my .02 cents.

    Man... I'm sorry I let you guys down.... =/

    I've been striking out lately. I'm too lazy to get up and take pictures, but here's a summary of today's haul:

    Brioni Shoes
    Hermes Tie
    Givenchy Tie
    Balenciaga Sport Coat
    Brioni Sport Coat
    Kilgour French Stanbury Overcoat
    Kilgour French Stanbury Sport Coat x 3
    Oxxford Suit x 3
    Samuelsohn Suit

    Some other stuff I don't remember...

    I know it seems like a lot, but I've been camped out at the store I found the Isaia at, hoping for a massive recent Isaia haul. I'm pretty bummed. [​IMG]

    I dont think its true for yellow-tag clearance as final markdown. I bought some shoes from Marshall that were from $200 (Marshall's price, not the retail price) that got clearance down to $69 (yellow-tag clearance), kept them for a month, then returned them, but the manager checked the price online and offered them to me again for $39, so I think you can wait the Marshall's price to drop down to 80% or more.

    I knew this quote would come in handy some day....
    It was from the blue challenge February 2011. It was cool to see yfyf, fuuma, frenchy, kitonbrioni, and a lot of the others posting :) Can't believe it was only a year ago...

    Stopped by an RL outlet today, picked up a few pocket squares and ties for myself, and picked up a few items that I thought you gents might be interested in getting your mittens on. I'm only posting prices since this is technically a proxy. First come, first serve - regular posters in the thread only. Lurkers keep on lurking. Prices do not include tax and true shipping costs.

    Gitman Bros. knit tie - $15

    There's a large pull partial way up the tie. Left it so it'd be easier to photograph. I honestly think if you cut off the excess, no one would ever notice.

    PRL knits - $12.50

    Polo tag has come partially loose on one side.

    RLPL pocket square - $15

    Claimed:
    Ever the slightest pulls in small areas - couldn't even photograph. Definitely unnoticeable once folded.

    edit: if anyone is inclined to proxy, I found this bag on eBay a few nights ago and fell in love. it's actually the reason I went to the outlet, in hopes I'd find it. Hopefully someone else has more luck: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ralph-Laure...0?pt=US_CSA_MWA_Backpacks&hash=item19ce4d1c0e

    The subtle color in the Ted Baker is pretty cool. The Corallorosso that I have has a similar blue color in the collar. I don't really like to wear things that are loud, but enjoy vibrant color, if that makes sense.

    The only thing brag-worthy is a silk Hermes scarf. Funny story and pictures will come later. It is 4:40am here and time to go to sleep.
