I was there when they opened @10- probably about 60-70 folks on Newbury St side, didn't notice Berkeley St, probably equal amount. Everyone reasonably civilized- no scrambling, clawing or eye-gouging. I found my man Michael on the 2nd floor, and he very nimbly and efficiently guided me to the 6 items I had scoped out the previous Thursday. I ended up purchasing three: 2 Dries BD's and a Dries v-neck knit. All awesome fits (haven't noticed Dries' name pop up in slim-fit shirts thread, but for me it's spot-on). Not much in shoes--some Barbera (wonder who makes 'em?) black captoes that looked decent, Dries suede chukkas, Harry's of London casual stuff, but what I really admired last week was the antiqued brown Mantellassi Norvegese captoes--gorgeous, but alas, not on sale and carrying a hefty $1,100+ price tag. Tried 'em on; they were awesome. Not much in suits (nothing in my size; apparently they don't carry shorts anymore, anyway), some nice pants, Valentini's among them that I think I'll go back & check out again, since I ran out of time today.
