I got a Chelmer and a bunch of shoe trees.

Lame ass that I am, I haven't made it over there yet. Though I heard that reductions were 40%, pretty much across the borad.

Z, how much were the shoe trees?

Reuglar price

They did have boot shoe trees, which I hadn't seen before. I think it's $105 for the regular shoe trees and $110 for the boot.

I think John Lobb has the same number of shoes on sale, but the discount is not as deep as last fall. All sale shoes are 40% off. Last time a decent number of shoes, including the Vintage 2002, were 60% off.

FB is having a Father Day sale, all suits are 25% off, so Oxxford is a steal at $750.

BG has 2 Kiton shoes on sale, a loafer and a gator monk reduced from $8600 to $5000. Only a couple of John Lobb rubber soles are on sale, one is the Barros. Vass cordovan loafer now $990 and pebble grain loafer is now $600. BG also has an impressive selection of Carmina cordovans but only one model, a tassel loafer, is on sale reduced from $700 to $450.


Edit to correct a mathematical error.

FB?

Filene's Basement, and I believe that 75% should be 25% - otherwise I'd be at FB right now!

Note New Location:
SOIFFER HASKIN
317 WEST 33rd, NYC
(Between 8th and 9th Avenues)

Strollers not allowed. No children under 12 will be admitted.

How's the new Soiffer Haskin location? I'm bummed because they are no longer within lunchtime walking distance of my office. That's probably good for my bank account.

What, is this their 3rd location in the last couple of years. I wonder if the buildings neighbors got tired of the tourists lining up outside on a Sunday morning?

I like the Malo sale.
post #414 of 5168
Well, with respect to layout, it's a lot like the space on the 4th floor of that building on 18th or wherever it was. It is right around the corner from the 34th St. stop on the ACE line which is more convenient for me than any of the other locations have been. I will also say that the women working checkout at the Hugo Boss sale yesterday were quite an improvement over anything I've seen in the past.

What was the discount like yesterday? I may swing by to see about the Baldessarini...
post #416 of 5168
I was interested only in sportswear so I skimmed the tailored clothing price list. I want to say that sport coats were $250, trousers were about $70 and suits were about $400. Ties were $25 to $30. I don't know if they'll have further reductions today. They did have a lot of suits and sport coats still on the racks.
post #417 of 5168
Thanks. I went and checked it out--regular Boss sportcoats were $200. Baldessarini and "Boss Selection" or something like that were $350. Some of the latter were pretty nice, but way too expensive for a sample sale, in my opinion, especially on the last day. They probably had 40 sportcoats left in 38R alone...

So, a couple of things. First and foremost, get thee to Davide Cenci--unannounced "early" sale, St. Andrews and Belvest suits/sportcoats 60% off, lots of nice trousers as usual. I got a very nice $725 navy 3/4 wool raincoat for $95 and a nice olive heather linen coat for the summer/early fall for $50, down from $500.

Turnbull sale didn't do it for me. Ties are now down to $30, shirts still $109. Chester Barrie suits $1500 in some nice fabrics.

Do you know how long this sale is running? Is there a large selection of sizes?
post #420 of 5168
The sale is at least through next week--they haven't even put the "sale" sign in the window. Seemed like a good selection of sizes. . . .
