Paul Stuart Sales - Page 37

Shoe selection was awful.
post #542 of 611
Grabbed a PC jacket and looked hard at the PC overcoat, but put it back when I saw the button holes had been cut on the sleeves. The SH ladies liked it on me though.

lefty

P.S. The shoe selection was awful.

went by today, saw a bunch of decent suits in my size, good values for $350, too, but nothing that I "had to have".

saw a few great shirt styles but not in my size.

with everything at 70% off retail, this seems well worth the trip, even if they don't have the super-nice shoes.

ps lots of v. well dressed folks at this sale, i must say...

The bolts of fabric that I saw were from $85-$100. There were solid grey wools, pinstripes, and other nice patterns, but I think the problem was that there wasnt enough fabric for a suit. The Holland and Sherry fabric I was going to pick up was only 3 meters, there was a Dormeuil (sp?) bolt that was 2.85 meters for about $85. But everyone seemed to agree that you needed at least 3.50 yards for a suit, at least. However, it might work for a jacket or overcoat.

Also, I did pick up a "slim" fit shirt made in canada shirt and there were quite a few on the table when I was there. Of course, they might have been snatched up, but they did have them.

Same with the suits. I saw several solid dark blue wool suits in 42R and I myself picked up a linen navy blue suit in 42R for several weddings this summer (Memorial Day Weekend in Boston and South Beach in mid-june). I dont think they would have lasted long at $300-400 though.

I think that as far as sample sales are concerned, the Paul Stuart sale has the best dressed shoppers by far.

Mine was $110, as were a few others I saw. They had a crazy grey with large windowpane tweed that was 4 meters or more, and a few others. Also, there were a few good jacket materials when I looked, but the selection was very limited. And did you see the one that said 50% wool, 50% paper? Paper?

I concur that the shoe selection was poor. Those burgundy jodphurs were the one exception although they're nowhere near my size. I did pick up pair of them three or four years ago for $100 at the original, legendary PS sale. Things have gone way downhill since then.

Anything in 36R that you guys saw?
post #548 of 611
Socks on the right in my picture are OTC. The herringbone is a ridiculous wool/silk/cashmere blend, originally $70.

I was disappointed that there were no shoe trees.

Unrelated question.

What does Paul Stuart do with its unsold store merchandise? Do they all go to this secret yearly sale? Very few PS items show up on Ebay, that's why prompt the question.

If anyone sees anything decent in a 39L please feel free to PM me. . .

I got there 15min before closing time, and somehow found a pair of the burgundy Stuart's Choice jodphur boots in my size for $250. They are pretty darn sweet and have the dainite soles I have been looking for. There was a pair left in size 9.5B when they closed for the day.

I went w/ my brother and his wife. Almost half the clothes were for women, which surprised us. My bro and I are 10 D's and we tried to squeeze into those popular 9.5B and 9 D burgandy jodhpurs too. The shirt and tie selection was pretty good imo. Got some nice heathered wool ties I'd been interested in for a while.

Btw, if there are multiples of an item you're thinking of buying, check the price tags. Some duplicates had different prices, varying from 10 to $80.

Is there a Paul Stuart in Washington, DC?
post #555 of 611
No, just NYC and Chicago, I'm told.

If my dc location confused you, I'm in NY now.
