I believe most of the smaller jackets were picked clean by SF members; most of my damage was done in the odd sportcoat department. I was also happy to completely revamp my shoe tree stock, and the black shell cordovan oxfords were simply too tasty to pass at less than $300.
I'm sure Ill just have to sell something on Ebay to recoup the costs.
Yes, I agree. It was worth arriving at 8:00 am. I won't even ask when you guys showed up
One benefit of the early arrival is finding shoe trees in my size. The trees above size 9 have a metal plate on one foot that says Stuart's Choice. The plate on the other foot has the Grenson logo.
I might go back for a straw boater and a tux. You know, the essentials
