7/8 - 7/25

Usually the first week is 50% off their lusty inventory. Second week is 60% off a slightly less lusty inventory.

Don't Bother.

My Post on Louis last month:


Coincidentally, I was in Boston earlier this week for the first time in nearly 20 years.
Visited Louis and the Andover Shop.

Louis:
A huge disappointment. I had been there before, and to their short-lived
New York branch. My taste runs semi traditional and I favor tweeds and
the like. I am a former Chipp and Norman Hilton customer but in recent
years have bought Isaia, Belvest, and Battistoni- all with natural shoulders.
Louis is a airy, sunny store with very little inventory. Compared to Wilkes
Bashford, which may be going under, it seems empty. Most of what I saw
was summer/casual. They couldn't show me a Belvest suit in 44R - not
an exotic size. Most off-putting was the sales-person... a skinny stubbled
youth of indeterminate gender wearing torn jeans and a T shirt.
Not the type who should be selling tailored clothing. Reminded me of the
creeps who staff the San Francisco Barney's.

I think the criticism of Louis is too harsh. They're in a transition period trying to find their voice, but they're still very good. Depends on your taste, I suspect. But if you're looking for business casual and perhaps something with some attitude (but not euro-trash) it's right at the top (still better than Barneys and other local competition). The most on-point criticism is that they are pricey

I thought they were actually fairly decent this Spring and Summer and even this past fall.

I got a nice Belvest jacket and Kiton shirt.

Stuff was moving fast.

Anybody know where the remainders from the Louis Boston sale will show up? Usually it's Filene's Basement in Newton, but not sure that FB is buying it this year given their own troubles.

Sims purchased Filenes and Marcy Sims claimed that they will keep it as relatively high end discounter to Sim's middle end focus.
