    New RLBL suit for $400 at the RL store (1600 off retail)
    Got brand new AE Stanton firsts at $130 (shoes.com deal)
    RL Stantons for $60 (around 500 retail)
    Daffys for Mabitex and Incotex (probably saved over 5000 bucks off retail)


    What color and pattern was the RLBL suit, and how did you get such a huge discount at and RL store?

    Wish I could.... but sold those for a hefty profit years ago. [​IMG]

    The LV was a monogram Alzer 70 IIRC, the Goyard was a cognac leather [​IMG] broke my heart to make that few grand, actually. [​IMG]

    The Oxxford airforce blue pinstripe suit I wore today cost me $1.00 and it cost $25 to take up the sleeves - so a great fitting suit for $26.00

    2 Isaia suits 75% off at Off Fifth and 2 more 75% off at STP. No funky patterns or colors -- conservative enough for court. STP has been my personal closet for the last two years. I hope they bring in another Isaia haul (and that none of you are my size)[​IMG]

    A couple that immediately come to mind are ebay scores.
    Ralph Lauren corduroy coat. Starting bid was $79 or something like that. I ended up being the only bidder. It was a bad listing, with only one pic. When i received it, i was very surprised to find that it was PRL, made in Italy, and had the price tag still attached with a price of $1295. This was about 3 yrs ago.
    Last yr, I sniped a Ferragamo trench jacket for $295 or something like that. The price tag that was still on the coat indicated a retail price of $2995. And Lebron actually was seen wearing the same jacket at the 09 all star game:

    What sort of garage sale was this?

    A totally random, run of the mill tag sale. The neighborhood was just OK, nothing too affluent. The house was a hoarders paradise, and there were literally hundreds of people rummaging the attic, basement, etc. I found a few cool glass perfume bottles from the 30's, and was ready to check out, when I saw a trunk in the corner of the living room. It was overflowing with beanie babies. Something struck me as unusual about it, so I shoved some of the beanie babies off to the side and saw "E. Goyard, Aine..." and nearly passed out.

    I dumped all the toys on the floor and dragged the sucker over to the checkout guy and palmed him a fiver to watch it to make sure nobody took it from me while I made one more run upstairs. In the attic, behind years of Xmas decorations, I found wrapped in a muslin sheet the LV case. Im practially erect at this point, but I have no idea what the prices would be. I kept the LV wrapped in the muslin so nobody could see the logos, schlepped it down to the checkout and said to the guy "How much for this old luggage?" He took a glance and said "$40". I said "Can you do $30? Ive gotta haul this to my car 2 blocks away". He said yes and off I went. Sold the LV for $900 and the Goyard for $4500 a year or so later. I miss the shit out of them though.
