    I'll volunteer to mule on Sunday. This is my lone break from studying so hopefully they have the entire stock from the Boston store... Just send me a PM and we can work out details.

    Guys,

    You really need to try on the Westons before buying. The sizing is a little strange depending on the last.

    i've heard a lot about weston's shoes, but how do their belts and ties fare? they seem pricey but not sure who makes them (esp. the tie, i'd imagine it's not up weston's alley)

    Hey Guy's... SF was down for a few day's and I al,ost forgot about this... I stopped in last week and the salesman was ultra helpfull...Sadly they are not expecting a ton of shoes... Mostly older discontinued models, he said a few odd colors??? Small sizes and really large sizes, all in all head though under 100 pairs of shoes... He seemed real nice and there was no pressure at all to come back, gave me a real nice master catalog too but joked "don't think you will find anything in it at the sample sale" I think I am going to pass, but than again with my luck I'll miss some super sale LOL... I might add the store really can't accomodate more than 10-15 people in it...

    I am likely to show up, but Urban Warrior is right -- keep your expectations low. Theirs is a small shop and I sincerely doubt that they will be cleaning out the 180s or the demi-chasse models. Again, sizing on Westons is funky.

    I spoke with the Weston store today. The shoes are older models 5-10 years old with nothing from the current selection. The salesman indicated there would be a wide range of sizes and models. I asked if he could fax me a list of the shoes and he stated no such list exists, and that he "expected a line of people around the block" as he'd received so many phone calls.

    No doubt from folks like me, from the SF.

    I just wish I'd tried on the Weston's when I was in Sky Valet last week. Without having tried them on, I'm out.

    With the more "classic" shoes, why would it matter if they are 5-10 years old? Lines around the block, looks like I should get there before 9am. I guess the wife and I should not enjoy the vino too much the night before so I can be up and about. [​IMG]

    They raised the price by $50 even before the sale starts..??  It's all your fault (me included), you guys kept calling them, with that much interest generated they raised the price.

    The shop is not that big with not much display space, I can't imagine they can accommadate more than 10 customers at a time,

    Maybe we should ask for the thread to be deleted to keep the interest down...

    I'd love to pick up a new, pristine pair of their demi-chasse but evidently that's not gonna happen. 5-10 years seems kind of old to me--I think I'll content myself with loot from the PS sale.

    I just called them, and they can't do any purchase over the phone. I wish someone could help me pick up a pair of loafers or hunt derby or chelsea boots.... and Koji isn't being too helpful today.

    Now, what could possibly make Koji miss a Weston shoe sale? You've got to tell me about this new girl ...
