    Mine was full of RLPL and RLBL all on yellow tag clearance, I picked up a few items ill post later. I'm going back now to see if I missed anything and to check out another store in the area. oh, and whoever was pricing screwed up and put all the higher prices on RLBL!

    They also had one of those PRL plaid shawl cardigans at deep discount that were being posted by a few members last week. Slightly different as it has a chest pocket. PM if you want me to proxy if its still there. Size L.

    Also saw lots of Hugo Boss, a few good Dior ties, and a whole rack of PRL wool trousers with side tabs and suede edge on the pockets. None my size though and too expensive for flipping. Again, PM if you want me to check for you.

    Those boots are unreal. Much nicer than a lot of the super expensive fake military boots folks are dying for.

    Maybe snowbirds? I see stuff from Liemandt's all the time. They were an middle-tier men's clothing store for years in downtown Minneapolis. They also had a store in the Galleria later on. They closed in the 90's if I remember right. I remember being in the Galleria store a couple times.


    Yeah, that's what I'm dealing with. I guess a lot of the upper midwest is getting thrown into the deep freeze too (N. and S. Dakota, Iowa, Wisconsin, etc). They say if you take a pot of boiling water and toss it up in the air, it'll evaporate. I'm going to try that tonight when it's supposed to be the coldest. Needless to say I won't be going out Monday or Tuesday. Not sure if my car will even start.

    I've been to just about every Marshalls in the TC area. Some get a small spattering of high end stuff (a few high-end ties and some weird RLBL jeans), but I've never found the amount of quality stuff that some of you guys do, let alone find it marked down to dirt cheap prices. A local Marshalls had like 4 Duchamp and a few Versace Collection shirts and I thought that was cool. :plain:

    I'm wondering who makes Polo's made in Italy shoes also. I have a pair of penny loafers that say "bench made in Italy" but I'm not sure who they're made by. They remind of a pair of Polo loafers that I had that were made by C&J...

    Quick story....I went to one of my spots for a quick stop in yesterday and I saw one of the biggest donations from the same donor that I have ever seen. This guy must've loved Zegna! There were at least 20 Zegna ties--about 12 were the newer ones with the gold writing on the back of the tip. Then there were 5 Oxxford suits, a couple of Oxxford orphans, an Oxxford Navy blazer, and at least five Zegna suits. In addition to that, there were at least 10 Zegna orphans with pants nowhere to be found. There were also some corneliani orphans. The Zegna suits were trofeo and Tindari. Most were made in Italy but some were made in Switzerland. They were pretty much all mint and were size 48-50R. They were all well made and in very nice patterns and colors. Pretty much every one featured working cuffs. They were also priced very nicely. I almost bought it all. If it was all my size I probably would've (except the orphans). I am a 44R.

    I ended up taking a 3 piece full cashmere navy chalk stripe suit by Oxxford, and two other nice suits by Oxxford. I also pulled one of the Zegna suits and a corneliani sport coat. If I could've found the pants to some of the Zegna orphans I would've bought a couple more Zegna suits because the orphans were the nicest ones. The ties were all absolutely beautiful and modern in nice patterns and not the old ugly patterns that zegnas usually have. I had to pass on all of them though because they were all very worn in the area of where the knot was. I loved all of them and couldn't even buy one. I will post pics of the suits soon..


    Just some random things from the last week or so. There is so much more but no pics yet. It's been pretty steady for me lately. Good solid finds. Everything is available.


    Crazy PRL wool pants fully lined size 40-32 (check the pics)..Some of the craziest details I've ever seen.

    Wow! I can't wait to see pics, especially of a pure cashmere Oxxford 3 piece... :drool: I think you made a big mistake leaving the rest of those suits behind though. Especially in nice patterns/colors, mint condition and at basic thrift prices. I'd go back and grab all the complete suits in good shape if I were you. There are a bunch of 48-50 R guys on here who I know would love some of that stuff and even more guys on the bay who pay big $$$ for high-end suits in their size. I know a lot of guys who'd kill for a classic Oxxford navy blazer as well.
    :drool:
