Yeah, when I was trading, the majority of my shoes never saw the office. Know what you mean.

What a difference from yesterday. The shoes I think are going like hotcakes. There are however, still much more shoes left mind you. More bolts of fabrics, I would say better selection from yesterday since they had some stripes and a grey cashmere blend Zegna cloth. Coarse weave, excellent for a laid back sportcoat. More selection of sportcoats also. I think I will be heading back there everyday to see what is new. Also, some prices were marked even further down.

There were still a lot of Stuart's Choice shoes left this afternoon in many sizes. The 10-10.5-11 seemed pretty picked over, but other sizes still had lots of brown boxes. I found a couple pair that they moved from a different table but I'm a small size. They're not adding additional shoe stock. There were more ties this afternoon than last night (I've been there way too much) and the sport coat/suit racks still looked pretty full. Socks and belts are pretty much gone. Didn't look for trousers or sweaters. dan

A question germane to the topic of stocking up on shoes while they're cheap: > How would you store shoes which you know you won't wear for a year (or two)? I.e. For someone working in a conservative office environment, is it wise to have 3 pairs of Grensons/Peals boxed up in storage? Or do these shoes have a shelf life? Chris from Bennies, if you're reading this message I was a customer from CT who ordered 3 pairs...

I'd stuff the shoes with tissue paper and store them in your closet. Assuming you don't have awful heat/humidity problems in your closet, they'll be fine. Under the bed is another possibility, as this tends to stay a pretty constant temperature. But you could always just rotate them. I could easily rotate seven to eight pairs of shoes in my business wardrobe. It allows you to get enjoyment out of each pair without getting sick of any one pair.

I don't think I'd wear those side-laced to the office. But they're perfect for dinner, opera & ballet, wedding and all other social functions. How often do you see people wearing side-laced?

I'd never seen em anywhere until yesterday. Still wondering who's buying the ghillies. Never seen those worn without a dirk and kilt.

They had definitely put out new things since yesterday -- the tan wholecuts I bought in 10D were also available in black and olivey/brown, as well as the side-lace jobs in walnut and black, and the dark brown pebbled monks (which I really, really want to buy but my wife will most likely throttle me.) Wide selection on the ends of the size ranges (12+, 8-) from what I saw. Cleaned them out of women's knits and shirts -- at $200 marked down to $50 for shirts, and $500+ for cashmere sweaters marked down to $100, it's hard to go wrong, and I get extra credit with my wife -s

I tried those black wholecuts on yesterday (10D) and was carrying them around for a while, so they might not have been new

Hi, I am very interested in getting some size 13 Masterpieces (preferably brown and suede oxfords (wholecut, plaintoed, or cap-toed for the brown, same for the suede but also would include wing-tip)). If anyone is headed to the sale I would very much appreciate your help. PM me. And thank you in advance. Micah

I just returned from the sale (sorry 4Mica, I didn't see your post until just now), and the shoes have been marked down even further.  The Stuart's Choice are now $150, and the regular Grenson's are $75.  Best of all, if you buy two, the third pair is free. My total damage:  3 pairs of the Masterpieces for $300 total, plus a sport coat for $125 (originally $735), and a sports shirt for $25.

3 pairs of Masterpieces for $300? Why am I stuck at the office? Why? Seriously, if they can keep replenishing their stock, Friday is going to be something else.
