Sid Mashburn Online Store Live - Page 6

post #76 of 105
As former Atlantan, I can honestly say that this is the best store in Atlanta.

I never bought suits/shirts at SM (I cover my suit/shirt needs from Chan), but I bought a bunch of their casual stuff, ties, etc. and always been happy with their products. The best is, however, the atmosphere at SM. I don't know what's there to complain about getting a beer offered, chatting with a sales associate and having good music in the background. SM is definitely a great alternative to the generic stores at Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza.

- Nice cut in should area
- collar shape is nice

Con
-OCBD collar has far too much excess fabric and is always wrinkled
-End on end fabric and gingham fabric collar and cuffs have stiff fused feel, they are also a bit hard.
- Waist seems far too big and not proportional to the shoulder dimensions (and I am not skinny in the waist)

I doubt I will buy more of the Sid Mashburn house brand unless the cut and fabrics are changed.

why don't you just have them take in the waist of the shirts? they'll do it gratus

on their dress shirts there is a heavier fusing in the collar, placket and cuffs so the look more crisp.

on there sportshirts there is no fusing

I met Sid today at the Thread pop-up at Union Market. Really nice guy and passionate about what he sells. He confirmed a rumor I read about his store looking for a DC B&M location. It's likely to be in Georgetown. I think he will do really well here considering that DC is a southern town with a lot of disposable income. I couldn't help myself and picked up a cotton/linen popover and a cloth batik two-ring belt.

That is awesome news! I love their stuff and always make it a point to visit the shop when I am in Atlanta. Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later. Now to work on epaulet....

Neat that you got to meet him.

I, too, try to stop in each time I'm in Atlanta (usually only once or twice a year). He recently opened a store in Houston, but I haven't had a chance to visit that one yet.

How was the sale? Any great deals? I have to live vicariously through you since I'm a non-Atlantan.

Hasn't happened yet. It starts Friday at 10. Likely get there around 10-10:30.

Spoke with a couple of my buddies there and it sounds like it's going to be a real hodge-podge of stuff. That has the scavenger in me excited but the pragmatic spender in me a bit concerned. All about unique stuff, but I hope it's not just leftovers and unwanteds. I have to assume there will be a lot of third party stuff there (Barbour, Incotex, Filson, etc.) as I've personally seen multiple garments from those brands collecting dust after the sales pass. But we shall see.

Ah, I didn't read the date closely. Thought it was last week.

While in college, I worked for a retailer that had periodic warehouse sales. There was usually quite a bit of good stuff (in addition to even more leftovers and unwanteds); but they also had more locations, ergo more downflow inventory, than Ann/Sid. As you mentioned in your previous post, try to get there early for the best selection.

Holy crap what a shit show. I showed up at 9:45 and was treated to a 45-minute wait to get in the door. Once inside it was a total madhouse. There was a ton (and I do mean a ton) of stuff, but people were grabbing dozens of items in one armful and carrying them around or taking them to the fitting room. This meant that racks that should have been full looked bare. If you had the time (and the patience) you could post up next to a rack and likely see new items each time a SA came from the fitting rooms and replenished them. Though you'd have to withstand the dozens of people all-but-sprinting through the showroom.

Nothing in the sale was more than $350, which included tailored outerwear, suits and sportcoats. The best item I saw was a beige and brown puppytooth SC by Sartorio (again for $350). Alas, it was not in my size. There was also a dedicated portion of the showroom specifically for seconds and samples. This was where the best deals were, assuming you knew your size and tastes.

At the end of the day I ended up with a pair of salt-and-pepper houndstooth flannels for $100 (originally $350) and two pairs of Incotex khakis -- one Chinolino and one cotton/cashmere blend -- for $50 a piece.

TL/DR:
The sale itself was chock-full of stuff. There was a ton of different items at different sizes and a huge variety. Shoes (limited), tailored garments, knitwear, ties, pants, sports shirts, sportswear, and outerwear were all included. Prices ranged from $5-$350; brands ranged from PRL to Vilebrequin to Sartorio. While it was a great selection, the logistics were lacking and, honestly, almost more hassle than it was worth. Almost.

post #90 of 105
As of this morning there were a fair amount of 33s and a ton of 32s in pretty much every flavor. But there were so many people clapping things up, no way to know what's leftover. Headed out of town tonight otherwise I'd go back and see. Sorry I can't help.
