Sales in the DC Beltway area? - Page 4

post #46 of 80
EM, thanks for the Mazza report. It sounds like you got some nice items for great prices. Interesting that Mazza received a pair of size 9 black EG captoes too. One can only wonder I suppose whether there were other Edward Green shoes at the start of the sale, also selling for $299. As for RL made in Italy shirts/shoes. If it was RL "purple label" that you bought, then I believe Lorenzini made the shirts. If not purple label, then I don't know who made them. As for the Italian-made RL (non-purple label) shoes, the question of who makes them has been asked previously here and I don't recall a definitive answer. Ferragamo perhaps? Gravati? By the way, was there a mountain of Borrelli items at Mazza, like there was/is at the Connecticut Ave. store?

Ah, forgot to mention Borrelli shirts. I saw about 15 on display, and they ran a gamut of sizes, priced at either $159 or $189. I didn't look too closely at them since they were lacking in 16/36s, but they were fairly conservative colours and patterns. I guess 15 shirts do not equal a mountain... The ones I got weren't RLPL, but rather their standard Polo Ralph Lauren stuff. Hopefully someone will know who makes them. I'm rather curious.

Hi, Were the RL shirts that were made in Italy buttondown oxfords? If so, they are really nice this year. I picked up one at Conn Ave earlier and actually paid a bit more than I ought to for one at the actual Polo store. The $165 Made in Italy shirts that I've seen are somewhat fitted (not terribly so, but certainly not tentlike), have gorgeous MOP buttons and cross-stitching on the button application. Overall quite nice.

I agree. I didn't get any of the button down oxfords, but I examined the shirts some more (I got three of the Made in Italy ones) and I really like their styling. The MOP buttons, the triangular cut cuffs, slightly wider than normal, and as you mentioned, they don't fit like parachutes. While I used to look at a lot of different shirts (used to iron shirts for my parents' drycleaner back in high school), I've never really needed to get nice clothes until now, and these are definitely the first with MOP buttons, so I am fairly excited. While many of you already working may disagree, I'm very much looking forward to starting work after graduating this spring, and the process of slowly acquiring what I would consider a relatively decent quality work wardrobe has been fun and educational. By the way, thanks to the person who started this thread, as I probably would not have known about the deals at FB otherwise.

Even though NM's Last Call sale is now over, does anyone know if Saks' sale is still going on at Mazza Gallerie?

Ha ha . . . when can we expect to see Borrelli shirts selling for $250?
post #53 of 80
Definitely a flip, but I'd be surprised if the seller got someone to bid at that price -- it seems a little high as an opening bid. I wonder what the story is with the Elmsley's in size 9? Why there's an excess of them.
post #54 of 80
This looks like the pair from Mazza Gallerie.  The pair at Connecticut Avenue was labeled 9/9 1/2 on the inside.  The story behind the Elmsley is that they are so . . . blah.  I wouldn't pay $300 for them, much less $450.  For that money, I'd much rather get Marteganis from Francos.  Or two pairs of Grensons from Bennies.

Kabert, I was at the Mazza Gallery Saks a couple of days ago. There were two long racks of winter shirts and pullovers with an additional 25% taken off the earlier markdowns. Worth picking through if you are there, IMO, but not worth a special trip. You might find a Borelli shirt.

Apparently not . . .

That's a pretty fair opening price, actually. English Shoes used to start his auctions between $455 and $500.

For shoes as pedestrian looking as the pair in the auction at issue?
post #59 of 80
See who the bidder is? "Edward_Green" His feedback suggests he's in Germany. Hmmm, I wonder if those EGs are still at the CT Ave. Filenes....

The selection was pretty picked over the last time I went, which was this past Tuesday.  Good thing for my credit card that the next wave of sales isn't until July or so.
