    Just got a light gray Dolce & Gabbana suit for $199 from Nordstrom Rack because it had been altered. Fits me perfectly. Retail was labeled as $2200. Pretty ecstatic about this!!!

      @Ian- Congrats on that suit. That is one of those right place/right time deals. Wish they had something like that at my Nordstrom Rack.


      Anyways, I picked this up last week at Lands End for $39.99 after seeing it on a Primer Online Magazine 'Getup'. It's the first cutaway collar shirt I've bought so I am curious how I'll like it:

      Bought it with this from LEC to get the free shipping and for the more relaxed vibe. Plus it was only $19.99 (in the Glacier Blue Large Plaid):

      Lastly, I got these from DSW. I had a $20 Rewards Certificate to use so they only came out to $65.17 shipped. Went with the tan leather.

      They should all be arriving tomorrow so I'm pretty excited.

            Just bought these for $45 shipped, figured I would try out J&M as long as they were made in usa. Look hardly worn, all the stitching on sole is still white.





            And will be picking these up for $80 including shoe trees, off kijiji go figure. Not sure what AE model they are, but I could put them on ebay for more than that I imagine.

              @thmage: wife went to Manhattan for some shopping and brought them home Sunday night. She won't tell me where she got them. It's her way of making up to me for not letting me pull the trigger on new, never worn pair of Hanover LB Sheppard Longwings for $35 couple of weeks ago.


              TBH, they are not my style, (too flashy)but am not going to tell her that!

                n0rm you make her tell you! $270 for $1200 worth of shoes.....or are you just trying to make everyone cry.

                  If they are not your style and you dont think you will use them then you should definitely pass them along to someone like me I would make great use out of that double monk!

                    Redoing my entire wardrobe the last 3 months. Quite the experience in learning how the hell actually to buy clothes. Working on a very versatile wardrobe before I branch out.

                      Got my new Seiko in the mail today, and slapped a strap on it immediately. It sure looks like a watch that cost a lot more than $60.

                        ^ $60... I might get one at that price. Where from?

                          Not crazy about the roman numerals but seiko 5's are def bang for your buck. I was about to pick up a seiko 5 military watch until i ended up finding the jcrew timex field watch on ebay on the cheap.

                            Hmm... looks like they've bumped the price... again. $70 on Amazon now.

                            Comes on a cheap jubilee-style bracelet. I put it on a black leather Hadley Roma strap I already had, which is way nicer.

                              These are from about a few weeks ago but I'm just now posting them.


                              3 new ties.





                              By Tommy Hilfiger. Silk. Retail was something like $65/piece but I ended up paying about $33ish for all 3.


                              The turtle has become a favorite (though I haven't gotten a chance to wear it out yet).
