    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

    Champagne Tonal Stripe Tie - $58

    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?

    They size same as sperry. Pretty much TTS. Anyone want to do me a favour and proxy me something?

    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:
