I went to the SCP Saks today, but they didn't have anything great. No shoes on sale at all, and the suits, while decent prices if you'd otherwise pay retail, weren't anything special. I thought briefly about a Dolce for around $500, but passed, as I have four suits I like and paid under $400 for each. They had a Theory for $350 in a solid brown, SB, peak lapel, which looked cool, and I don't have a brown suit, but the material, as you can imagine, was for shit. I also hit the Nordstrom Rack over there, which was more interesting. Almost bought two pairs of Ferragamos at $149, a black chuka and a brown suede wingtip. But the boots were just a bit too scuffed to really get excited, and the wingtips were either a 9.5D (too narrow) or a 10.5D (too big in the heel). I had stopped earlier at the NR in Chino, and they'd had the wingtips in a 10D, perfect fit, but they had what looked like a dark stain on the toe, almost as if a drop of oil had been spilled on them. Again, couldn't get excited enough about them with that, even at that price. BTW, is there a way to get a stain out of suede, or are you stuck with it?
