I find ToBoot to be one tiny step up from Kenneth Cole : very amjack style
post #2582 of 5092
Crossposted from another thread: I just went to the To Boot sale in NY and was sorely disappointed. The shoes felt and looked very cheap for the "sale price." There was no way I was going to pay $150 for what they were offering and I can't fathom people ever considering paying more than that when they are normally priced.

I've never seen them in person but this is what I feared from seeing the shoes online. Guess I won't waste my time.

Got a notice through work concerning a Hickey Freeman private sale. Apparently it is 50% of all merchandise starting tommorow and ending Wednesday.

What is Hickey Freeman known for? Anything I should look out for?

Decent suits. They had some great deals on tuxedos at the sales I've been to (~$300 for pieces retailing at $1600).

I find that they're some of the best suits you can find for the price. The fabric is high quality, the tailoring is precise, and they don't thrive on the "big name" labels like Prada or Giorgio Armani just to thrive. If you can find them at half off, they're a bargain. The only thing I don't like is their more traditional cut (note: I don't mean wide cut) making them a bit tougher to wear casual.

Also, I have seen some on sale in the $300 range - but they also had that little "irregular" stamp.

Barney's private sale starts today. Not sure if you need the mailed flyer or prices are posted...anyone?
post #2590 of 5092
I wandered into Bergdorf Goodman today and they're having a large 40% off sale.
post #2591 of 5092
Is the Barney's private sale a set % off of everything? In the recent purchases thread someone posted a pair of Fiorentini + Baker boots that were incredible.

I went to the Cucinelli sale this morning and left empty handed. Nothing in my size that I loved. Prices are pretty good, but I'm consistently underwhelmed by BC.

j,

what sizes are available? Any 52? In what? I'm looking for trousers.

Thanks.

Maybe a half dozen pairs of trou total. Not worth going for that. There seemed to be decent stock. About a rolling rack's worth for each size, if you consider sweaters, jackets, and outerwear. I saw a friend there who is probably a 52. He's something of a BC fanatic, and had a jacket, a vest with fur collar (wild) and a half dozen sweaters it looked like he was getting.

I know that this will go over like a ton of bricks but I think BC has either bitten off more than they can chew or they have made a conscious effort to cut costs/quality. I say that because while their knits and outerwear are still top quality, I think their tailored clothing is just not what it should be, particularly for the price. Construction, cut and fabric wise, I feel the shirts, pants, jackets and ties come up short relative to the competition.
