So it will be like 650 shipped to India considering a 50 USD proxy fee. A little too rich for me. I would take 500 USD shipped to India but I dont think I am going to get one at that price

3) the new Men's Strore in SF

THe rest is basically cleaner ROSS stores.

You are being too generous. SF store is also a cleaner ROSS store.

I was at the 7th ave (16th street) store in NYC yesterday. In addition to what was mentioned in the original (first) post, there is a very nice dark chocolate brown leather coat in multiple sizes. It feels almost like cashmere, but it's leather. It still costs $1,000 (or $999 or something) but everything they have is around 70% off of "full retail price".

There are also quite a few sweater vests and some of the sweaters that have been seen here on B&S. (inc. the purple-ish colored one). There are 3 areas that have BC. One rack of coats (sherling, grey cashemere "sort of" like pea coat ($899?). One part of a rack of sweaters. One area of blazers w/patches in other corner of store.

Definitely worth stopping in if you are anywhere near the area and like the stuff. I purchased a sweater.

Question about their construction? You must be crazy...

Any of the blazers in long sizes? Rare stuff, but figured I'd ask...if so, anyone want to proxy?

I was at Mario's (in Seattle) the other day and the SP told me that their new BC stock is extremely limited (in colors as well as in sizes). I found a 3/4-length overcoat I liked but it was the wrong color. When I asked whether they can find/order it, he said they would have to order it from their Italian distributors, and it would take a good 3-4 months before it gets here. He also said this season's BC output has been seriously limited, obviously because of the economy. So I would expect much less BC on sale in the near future. He also commented on their quality, esp. as compared to Loro Piana, but I won't get into that now...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't BC's jacket not fully canvased and mostly machine sewn? Nothing wrong with that in theory, but at BC prices...

I was there yesterday and as far as sweaters go, available sizes are 50EU and above. Has anyone checked the other Loehmann's in the city if they are also carrying them?

Fair to say that LP came out the winner in that comparison?

They are absolutely fully canvassed and most of the sewing is done by hand

All the BC jackets I have (only about 3 so take this w/a grain of salt) and most I've seen (even cashmere ones) have been 1/4-1/2 lined. On all of these, the canvass (allbeit half or less) is floating. Never pinched a fully lined jacket to test. The cashmere usually speaks for itself

rest of the construction wise, yes, its mostly machined.....but the "quality" vs a mostly handmade garment is another debate. See Kabbaz vs SF/AAAAC

I think anyone who can say one is > than the other is obviously biased and is probably judging on one garment vs another in their own experience.

The net net is you pay extra dollars for BC (and LP for that matter) for its designs and "exclusivity"....worn out cliche, but the same as buying a toyota vs a lexus, etc

Not true. Tons of machine work on all my BC pieces. Though, Doesn't take away from my love of the brand.
