Dunhill (and others) at Saks Sale question? - Page 2

post #16 of 25
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?

You didn't like the shirts and ties? I thought there were still a few decent ones. Suits seemed mediocre except for a few that I saw.

Sorry, I forgot to mention those. I wasn't really looking at shirts, as I'm pretty settled on Pink slim fits as my work shirts. There were actually a few great ties, including a striped Brioni I was going to go back for (at $45, why not), but took too long at the NR across the street looking at shoes.

Are you talking about the black/purple one or a diff one? The cool ties left were a pastel striped david chu, navy david chu, two pindot michael kors, a couple striped RLPL, and two nice Brionis, one black with purple stripes, and one black with purple polka dots.

The striped one I liked was more light colors, certainly not mostly black. I really liked that black with the dots too, but I just don't have anything to wear it with. I also really liked this solid light aqua colored RLPL one, but, like I said, I just didn't get a chance to go back, and I need dress shoes more than ties anyways.

Yeah, I wasn't sure what I would wear with either of those Brioni ties, perhaps a charcoal or dark grey shirt with a black suit for an evening out...

I'd pair either of them with a white (or the right color pink/purple) shirt and very light gray suit and black shoes. Only problem is that my only gray suit is sort of a steel gray color (with some blue woven in) and not super light.

That could work, I was also thinking it might not be too bad with a blue shirt.

the SFA in Pittsburgh has a number of Kiton shirts and ties at 50% off ticketed prices. 135 for Shirts(Orig. $545), $53 for ties. Beautiful stuff leftover from Spring trunk show I was told.

I picked up the last 17.5s but there are tons of other sizes.

P.S. Correct me if i am wrong but these seem to be excellent prices for Kiton.

I've rarely found one. When I am down in Florida, I go to the outlets at Sawgrass Mills. The Saks outlet is the best one IMO, with Nordstrom Rack at the absolute bottom. The one item I've purchased there was a Hield sports jacket for -- with coupon -- $50.

It seems like you are also talking about the Saks department store, I presume in NYC. It really was slim pickings, but I ended up with an Isaia seven-fold black with white stripe tie and a blue Charvet cotton pocket square for $75 combined. I was happy with that. I was not happy with their offerings in tailored clothing.
