    I'd offer a trade on the pinstripe suit, but if your sizes in your profile are correct, I don't think I have anything to trade.

    Let me verify the sizes and get some pictures, as the jacket is not marked, only the pants were marked 32 so i was going off a 6 drop. I'd be will to trade it for a tie if you had any [​IMG]

    Had a near miss today: cashier had my card in hand and was about to swipe it when I noticed a tear at the bottom of a pocket on a pair of Bills... in my size. [​IMG] I'm pretty sure she thought I was nuts when I suddenly yelped "Hey, wait! I'm not getting them after all!" but I was glad I saved myself the 2.29. Coulda bar tacked the tear in place but they were just some summer poplins in M2P so nothing super-rare.

    Only actual pickup was a pair of Bills in size 37, oddly enough. Pun not intended... *rimshot*

    Found a BB 1818 Madison jacket that fit me okay, but no pants. Didn't look all that hard for them - it was a 50 or 52 so I figured sales would be near impossible and frankly the 1818 isn't all THAT nice.

    Picked up a NWT pair of Burberry linen pants in my size the other day for $1.99. The smaller non-chain stores are hit and miss, but alot of them have cheap ass prices.

    +1 - this particular kind of store - more of a "junk store" than anything - very very rarely has anything at all in any department. But when they do it's cheap!

    Rest assured that pants are not that cheap anywhere that has even semi-decent odds of finding anything, at least without lightning striking. [​IMG]

    Most of the pants around here are 4.99 or less. SA is sometimes 6-7 dollars and one place i go to they're 8-10.

    Really? Pants seem to be the one thing people are clueless about. I got all mine for a buck at Goodwill's $1 outlet store -- RLPLs and Zanellas that braved the rough waters of the $6 Goodwills.
