Stopped by the last day of the warehouse sale today just for the goof... Not much left though, a ton of people, check out line was over an hour (ugh). Some great deals to be had though... Picked up a couple of Zegna ties marked down to $17... Men's pants had no additional markdowns... Shoes went to 40% a ton of Barney's house label shoes but not much after that. I passed on a $100 pair of Todd's driving shoes an am kicking myself but all well... I did pick up this nice Mohair Zegna suit which I am pretty sure but not positive is part of the Napoli line? Anyone know much about this line? Different label and a nice little book about the suits construction. Here was the great part though... On sale for $899 with another 20% when I tried it on I noticed it had already been fully tailored, pants cuffed, working button wholes etc... The sleeves are about a 1/4 inch too long for my liking but it was something I could live with and wear with only one of "us" here noticing LOL... I figured what the hell let me see if they will give me a touch more off because of it... The lady at customer service said all she could do was give me the extra 10% a lot of the Boss, House stuff was getting and to ask fer when I made it through the check out line... Sure enough when I got to the front she was no where to be found, when I explained it to the guy working the line, he asked "well why would we do such a thing anyway?" When I explained he was super nice walked me over to the register and told the lady to give me a 40% discount for the hell of it... Total was $538 and change... Any idea if this is the Napoli line? On a side not I kind of felt bad for some people that were just pulling stuff out in there size and just buying it... There were a bunch of tailored Canali's with cut wholes and most of the Zegna stuff too... I tried on a blue mil 15 mil that honestly the sleeve didn't even come mid forearm and all but a 1/4 of fabric had been cut out... All sales were final too, ouch...
