(amirrorcrackd @ Jan. 30 2005,17:00) Paul Smith. Â It's Italian made, but most definitely British in design and fit. Â There are different lines that progress in quality as you go up (PS, London, Mainline) and at retail, can be too expensive for what you get. Â Right now, though, all of the new stuff is coming in, so all of the past season is 50% off. Â With the discount suits will range from high 400's to about 700 or so. Â I think a mainline suit at 700 or so is a pretty good buy. Â And again, you won't get more British than Paul Smith. Dan
Dan - Are you referring specifically to the Paul Smith store in NYC? Â Do they have many sale items left?
Yeah, the 5th Ave store. They had a lot of merchandise there, and essentially the whole store, minus a few new arrivals was 50% off. Some of the prices were still hard to stomach though. They had a beautiful pair of pants I considered, but at $210 after discount, I opted against it. Absolutely worth checking out though. The suit selection was getting slim, but lots of trousers, shirts, and accessories. Not many ties on sale. Some shoes on sale too, which was a good thing, though I didn't look at them closely. Dan
