Shoe selection was poor. Very very limited Stuart's Choice offerings, mostly Gravati made shoes. Not sure who Guyot is, but there were a handful of sleeker, almost Berluti-looking, shoes with laser etching (yuck).

I did not look at clothing.

I was fifth in line. I arrived late last year on the first day and did not want to repeat that.

Dr. No is right on the money. Very poor shoe selection, and less than stellar prices. Most of the shoes were from the Italian and Spanish line, and quite a few were just ugly. They topped out at $250, which was the cost of the SC, and most were $200. Clothing was 70% off regular price. There was some Phineas Cole mixed in. Nothing I tried on either fit or seemed worth the money.

I did not leave empty handed, however. I bought a pair of Stuart's Choice loafers. I'm not very familiar with loafer fit and I think these may end up being too wide (they're a 9E):


Some sea island cotton and cashmere socks:


And a length (3.5 yards) of lambwool/angora cloth. It wasn't terribly expensive, but I'm not sure what to do with it. I might have enough for a suit. But I certainly have enough for a jacket.

The third one from the sun

I have not been to the regular PS store in ages and I went to the PS Sale last year and found it underwhelming. Their stuff doesn't speak to me so I never pay it much mind.

How is the fit of the Italian PS shoes ?
I know Masterpiece Shoe fit full size too small for me.

I would buy some PS merch. if anyone wants to flip it here.

I had better luck. I struck out on the shoes -- I tried my hardest to fit into the burgundy Jodphur boots -- but came away with two suits, a sportsjacket, a pair of linen/cotton trousers, pajamas, and a length of linen/silk/cotton fabric for trousers.

Shoe selection was poor. Most of the Grensons could be found at the far end for Size 13s. If that's your size, you might want to come out of hibernation and get over to the Paul Stuart sale

I picked up a pair of tan drivind moccasins. Not sure who made them, but they were $100, looked good and felt pretty comfortable. Also picked up a 3B Linen Navy Blue suit, made in italty, dual vents for $290. They had some pretty nice suits for 70% off. Not sure what will be left as the sale goes on, it was a bit of a frenzy. Also picked up a a nice patterned shirt for $40 or $50 bucks.

Was going to go for the H&S fabric bolt for $100, but there were mixed feelings from the PS staff as to whether I could get a suit out of the 3 meters. After the PS buyer (named Michael) told me it would be cutting it close, I had to pass.

CHorse, if you were 5th, you must have been right behind me. I had on grey slacks and tan peal wingtips. We need an SF pinky ring or something to identify the brethren

Very sharp! I was trying to figure out who made the shoes when we were standing on the steps. They looked great, as did the whole getup.

It's true, there did look to be some good deals on suits. But none for me--there wasn't a single one in 38R.

C&J for Peal. On the 318. 'Nuff said .

38 is a tough size. I only looked at 41R and 42R, there seemed to be a pretty good selection in those sizes when we got there, but it appeared to be depleted when I took another look before I left. I'm not sure if PS replenishes the stock.
post #535 of 611
Yep. The shoes were indeed dreadful. And there were a grand total of 2 Stuart's Choice suits anywhere close to my size (43 mid-tall, a decent size for going up or down one in length or diameter). I picked up one of them-- a handsome Isaia make, probably 3-4 years old-- for 70% off. It's two-button, rather than the three that I prefer, but everything else was too perfect not to buy it.

Also some pretty fair Made-in-Canada shirts for $40-$50 or so. Nothing spectacular but good for the block-and-tackling of a workaday wardrobe.

Salesman says they have no additional stock. Everything they intend to sell is already on the floor.

I found a pair of Stuart's Choice brown semi-brogues for $200, which I consider a steal. They are the pair I didn't buy last year at $250. In general though, shoe selection was abysmal.

I also found the shirt selection (at 70%) off to be pretty good. The shirts weren't slim, but they weren't huge either. FAbric is nice and with MOP or shell buttons. I'd say they resemble Brooks Brothers Luxury shirts in fit, which is between their "Traditional" and "Slim" fit. I didn't buy any of the $280 "Made in Poland" shirts though.

Suit selection was good for staples. I thought the presence of numerous 42S solid navy suits to be unusual. Nothing solid in 42R though.

I did pick up a nice pair of "Travolta" boots with crazy brogueing, really nice for wear with jeans. Couple of shirts, as mentioned before -- at $45, not too bad at all for day-to-day.
post #538 of 611
How much are suits going for?
post #539 of 611
70% off either $1000-$1300 for the regular suits or $2500 for the Stuart's Choice suits.

Hello,

For those who can venture.
How much were the fabrics going for this year? Anything else interesting in 3.5yard + lengths?

Much thanks
