More Strange Happenings at Marshalls

Last September, I wrote a short post on the Brooks Brothers' Golden Fleece and 1818 suits that were popping up at various Marshalls locations in the New York/New Jersey area (you can see the original post here.) It seems that the suits are back in force - with all the strange tagging issues as well.

I didn't take any pictures of the suits, but they all looked the same as what I reported on previously: a navy blue Brooks Brothers tag inside the suit jacket, with the tag on the jacket collar stating "Made in the USA of Imported Fabric." These Brooks Brothers suits also had an original BB retail tag behind one of the jacket lapels, with an original retail price of either $1600 or $1900 (which I don't recall seeing last year).

Further evidence that these are above average quality suits: the imported fabrics used to make these suits. I didn't check every suit on the rack, but most of the suits had fabric tags from Loro Piana, Cavendish, and Vitale Barberis Canonico.

Marshalls is currently selling these for $499. That's a decent deal, although not as good as the $199 that some of the Golden Fleece suits were going for last year. If you happen to have a Marshalls nearby that sells suits, it might be worth dropping by to snag a suit or two on clearance.
