I purchased a pair of black Bamfords on Friday. There was only one shoe of each pair...
So, is Saks' strategy of sacrificing sales volume to increase its margin going to result in increased revenue, or even enough revenue to keep Saks in business? I have my doubts.

I need advice. I bought two "Stuart's Choice" suits at the sale a few months back, each at 90% off. I recently took one of the suits to my tailor, whom I've been quite happy with for the last 15 years. I also brought an Oxxford Clothes suit and two jackets to be tailored at the same time. Now, I would swear that he asked if I wanted cuffs on both pairs of suit pants, and I said yes, like I have done every other time (over ten). However, there was nothing in...
