    Does Burlington ever carry nice stuff? I have one a few miles from my house. Entered once and saw nothing but crap. Have I been making a giant mistake for years???

    That explains everything. Century 21 is New York's consolation prize for not having Jil Sander pieces sitting around in parking lots.

    Hit up a shop today because I'd heard it was currently 75% off the whole store and picked up that Brooks Bros makers charcoal sport coat in my size I first saw back in mid August at $55. The discount made it a bit more realistic to say the least.

    More finds at Marshalls -
    I think this was $999

    This seemed like a decent deal, think it was $199

    These are alright, right? $70ish

    Overall, stoked that none of this stuff is my size.

    Oh, not really. I'm just saying there isn't much grail worthy stuff in SF. I had like maybe.. $200 left of credit/cash lol. Didn't find anything mind blowing. Will post tomorrow.

    Does anyone know if Marshalls/TJ Maxx has any kind of central distribution? I'm guessing not. As far as I know, the top mass-retail chain in our area is Macy's, which explains why the discounters don't carry things like RLPL: there's no one to get it from. I have to admit I haven't been stopping in all that much, but all of the suits have been garbage and the best items I've seen is some of the mediocre RL Polo.

    Makes sense to me. I've never seen anything better than US Polo Association at ours...JC Penney/Sears/Target are probably the top retail stores in our area.


    On another note....My Secret Santa Thriftmas Gift(s) has been shipped. Hoping the recipient will be happy and find some of the items useful.

    Per their website, they have a total of 2,900 retail outlets world wide, they also have employment opportunities at "distribution centers". My guess is that they try to minimize shipments and may have regional distribution. That would explain the limited distribution of some brands.

    I never got an answer as to who makes these, but if anyone is interested they're available. 34w 30.5 inseam, with about an inch to lengthen. Let me know, thanks.

    The only saving grace at the store where I saw the trashed Saville Row items was the Banana Republic I am looking for. Unlined cotton duster in excellent condition save some wear to the leather on the belt buckle. It is XS, Brian.
