Exactly. I check the forum everysday just in case there is an amazing sale. I found out about the Paul Stuart sale of 05 during my on call day. I went to the sale post-call after having been up 30+ hrs, looking and feeling like a complete mess. I did come out with a nice pair of black Jodhpurs for <$200 and so it was worth it.
Unfortunately, there hasn't been a great sale since the last Asprey sale of '06. Interestingly, I also went to the first Asprey sale after having been up all night - it was right after the NY Viennese opera ball. I went home to change out of black tie (I would feel kinda wierd standing in line in black tie for a sale at 7 AM on Sun. morning). But that made me a little too late to get the EG city boots or Lattanzi blucher. *sniff*
OTOH meeting all the guys at the breakfast afterwards was kinda nice.
