Definitely! Used Oxxford suits typically go for $100-$150. You could get at least $250 out of that if it's a normal size and style and is recent.

Thanks! Don't know much about Arnys, but did some quick research and they seem pretty nice.

Pretty sure I don't deserve that praise but, coming from a premier thrifter like you, I'll take it!

I have a NWT pair of VV cords that I keep meaning to put up, but at this point I'll probably wait till fall - if they hadn't been NWT they'd have stayed on the rack.

I have seen 3 in the wild and a few on ebay.
What did it look like and what width is it?

Lands End made some fantastic stuff. Especially ties in harder to find fabrics like linen, cotton, cotton/linen, cotton/wool, silk/wool,...
