    called both RL stores and no luck, is it really this hard to find a solid navy rlbl suit for a decent price?
    barneys customer service apparently doesnt pick up the phone, i guess suit supply is my best bet

    Barney's is worthless on the phone IMHO. Just go, you'll also be in proximity to Bergdorf, stop by. I was in RL last night and there were plenty of markdowns on suiting-just visit (Madison Ave).

    Update...went to rl no luck..went to bergdorff they had it for $13xx...havnt gotten a chance to go to barneys but i bought a suit from suit supply..it fit pretty good and the price was decent. now just need to find some damn shoes for tomorrow...bergdorff apparently sold out of the rl shoes and the foreign eastern european sounding shoe salesman
    was completely useless. is there a place in nyc that sells loake or herring? I saw bergdorff had some magnannis that looked chiseled toe but i know theyre not worth 300..that was on sale too

    Sorry to hear about the RLBL search, I'm surprised. Barney's would still be worth checking, both for suiting if you still want and also the shoes. Lobb is having a sale, but probably still pretty high in price. Crockett & Jones would also be worth checking, I think they're having a sale now...as for the other brands you mention, I'm not sure.

    Np...went to barneys...they had good deals... saw gaziano for 500, also a beautiful crockett and jones boot that was 350 but was half a size too large. went to saks they had 70% off the sales rack..but minimal stock...bloomingdales had 50% off sales stock but limited as well. charles tyrwhitt had a sale but not much selection..id rec going there for english style shoes...but i dont know where
    theyre made. Surprisingly florsheim had a good amount of english style chisel toed shoes but were very expensive 350. ended up buying something at the rack....overall these two days of shopping reminded me why i will most likely never shop in person in houston again.
