Agree, isnt that the reason they are buying/editing for next season? They are ultimately in complete control and if it was something I did I would definitely talk about it and why I did what I did.

I have never visited but I really want to check it out. Jim always looks impeccably dressed and almost everything I have seen pictures of makes me want to buy it. Maybe its a good thing I havent visited just yet...

Exactly my thoughts...I live roughly 3 hours driving distance, and frequent Carmel once or twice a year.  Next trip is destine for K. of Carmel.  But should leave the wallet down the hill in the car parked next to the beach on Ocean Blvd. (its a hell of a uphill walk for those who have been).

Don't lock you wallet in your car.
There may be actual bargains in their lower level

Do they do seasonal sales as most retailers? Xmas time and June?

They have sales/promotions from time to time:

I'm hoping to stop by again in the next few months as well. Last time I went Jim had the first samples of their "private label" sportcoats and they looked quite nice - I'd like to see what they have in stock now. Those Ring Jackets also look stellar. Pretty curious about those.

Sportcoats. In August there was nothing that interested me. Maybe they have received new inventory.
Thanks.

There are often fantastic bargains downstairs.  Last time I was there I picked up a $1k+ Brioni sweater for $50 and a pair of Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots for $500 as well.  Plus they stock Saphir products.

That must have been the limited edition shell cordovan Wolverines, eh? Because the standard chromexcel version runs around $340 at full price. $500 is a nice discount for the shell boots, though.

Ring jacket!

I had pics of the Ring jackets along with the jackets designed by Khaki's owner Jim Ockert and made by Martin Greenfield already on my list. Will add fall/winter neckwear. I like the idea of wool and cashmere tie closeups because it shows off their texture.

Probably do some of the new pant and knitwear as well.

Anything else?

Had quite a day at Khaki's yesterday along with Jason (Tumblr blogger Brokeandbespoke). I hadn't been to Carmel in a several months. The amount and variety of new inventory absolutely blew me away. There are several dozen all new brands for the store that you don't see around San Francisco or online. They have a ton of Fall/Winter to choose from including tweed and moleskin pants, wool and cashmere ties, sweaters in every imaginable style and color, scarves, cashmere socks, lots of outwear espcially leather and tech fabric jackets. But even with the stacks of merchandise you have to decide rather quickly because the place is very busy and a lot of popular sizes go quickly.

I will post more pics later but here are just a few of the wool and cashmere Fall/Winter ties they had on hand yesterday.

Those are great ties so far!
