    I went back yesterday for the second to last day of the sale to see what the suits were pricing out at. Not good. 30% off on house brands and 50% on "star sticker" suits (which all had pleated pants). I liked a few of the house brand ones, but at $280, plus the $100 or so my tailor would charge to alter it, it didn't seem worth it. Some good shoe deals, but not on the stuff I'm looking for right now (fashionable yet able to wear to work), and then I hit the tie rack. Three Zegnas and Brioni for $123.

    I got a pair of Venturi shoes for 99 bucks... I bet it could have been the best deal in the whole building.

    How the hell did you pull that off?

    No idea... I was just looking at Venturi shoes (because I like them) and looking at the soles (where the price was). This one listed 755 regular, 99 on sale... I didn't believe it at first, so I got the box to go with the shoes to see if the same price was on the box, and it was.

    I've got to see those jackets. The only kiton shirt I found was marked down to $225.

    Well, it they weren't purple or flourescent green, it's not impossible that a pricing mistake was made but I got to agree with you on calling fucking, not just regular, shenanigans.
