    Alright boys, I figure most of us were on there promptly at noon going through the large selection like crazy. This was the most hyped/anticipated sale Ive seen yet.

    There were some misses, but plenty of hits and tons of things taken out from us. All in all though...what kind of damage did you do?

    Me - $304


    Wool Boat shoes - $68

    Plum Stripe Oxford Button Down - $108

    The ties are nice. I didn't have enough money though. I love the 1 BoO tie i have (royal weave). Those wool shoes are really nice too.

    I was trying to get a pair of boat shoes, I was able to get the wool ones in my cart but I just felt a bit weird with them being wool and all...

    Ended not being able to get anything for myself, but picked up a plum striped oxford and chocolate overdyed oxford for Vashin (Canada)

    got the wool boat shoes as well.
    wanted the leather, but somone nabbed it in my hesitation.

    OP (or anyone who definitely knows) : how did you size yours?

    i sized my boots just like my actual sperrys. true to size. in retrospect, i may have wanted to go a half size up to wear thicker socks with them. hmm......

    if someone had direct experience with them, i'd appreciate it.

    warlok/cldspu- how did you guys size them?

    JD, If you can tell me within the next 10 minutes or so, I'll do it cause it'll combine shipping.

    Since clarks/chucks fit bigger than normal, sperrys fit a half size to full size larger. I'm a 10 in chucks but 10.5 in sperry though.

    I'm 13 so I bought a 13. I wear an insole too so I never bother sizing down. I really have a hard time agreeing that so many shoes run big anyways... they always feel true to size for me, at least in length.

    $207 here - $128 for the leather boat boots and and $68 for the black nylon boat shoes, both size 8.5, plus shipping.

    The ties were a bit underwhelming, but I already own this one and I'm surprised that nobody has snatched it up yet:

    Really? I ended up getting the BoOxSperry loafers and they are the same size as my Clarks.

    thanks chrono... i bought a 9.5 and i wear a 9.5 in chucks and a 9 in wallabees... hopefully they're not too tight since i'll go sockless. too bad, though: anyone else feel like the wool is too stuffy for summer? i really wanted the leather [​IMG]

    My 10.5 sperry navy boat shoes fit me well sockless. I definitely couldn't do a 10, but probably could do an 11 if i wanted to wear socks. Makes me think i shouldn't just bought 11 in those boots. Hmm.... Maybe i'll try to switch it up if 11 is still available

    I picked up the black nylon boat shoes in a 10.5 and also the grey purple/pink rep tie. Pretty excited fore the black boat shoes, impossible to find in that color.
