There is actually good news in Scottsdale and Phoenix -- and therefore, I imagine, at similar stores around the country. The Polo store has some very good deals: I bought 4 PL polo shirts ($165 each) for $42.50 each, including a white one; also a PL white Italian casual/dress shirt, socks, and a regular label wool-and-cashmere dark navy herringbone blazer for over 60% off. I bought most of the PL polos in medium, but there were stacks of small, large, extra, and extra-extra. At Sak's, Ferragamo ties were selling for $40 before noon, a little higher in the afternoon sale. Neiman's has some Charvet ties on sale as well as Hermes and Ferragamo: 20 or 25% off the sale price.
