    For those with access to lower Manhattan, Century 21 is having their winter clearance blowout. I picked up a very nice black merino wool long sleeve polo from Borrelli for $39.99 (down from $420 or so) (and it's tax free week.). I spotted at least a half dozen or more other pieces (mainly 50 and 52 sz) . . there's a beautiful cream zippered sweater with a hole in it also marked down to $40 from $700--if it's fixable, it would be sweet.

    Lots of discounted Theory sweaters, Ballantyne cashmere in ugly forest green for $80. Spring batch of RLPL shirts for $110 as well.

    Any other colors? Styles?

    <later reply>

    Thanks, sorry for the troll. Picked 1 sweater up for $150 at Thanksgiving, guess I'm just greedy.
    Cheers.

    Not that I could see, but I didn't do an exhaustive search. All the good sale stuff was in the "Riot Sale" racks . . .just saw iterations of that damn forest green (earlier this winter Century had a number of Ballantyne cashmere sweaters in a variety of nicer colors and styles, but I didn't buy any at the time--they had been reduced to around $150; a good buy for the quality, but more than I wanted to spend).

    Did you see any good deals on suits (Borrelli or otherwise)? I might try to stop by Saturday AM. Thanks.

    We've been told Isaia is marked down to $500. If you go, please check to see if there are any Isaia suits in 40R. I know there was a brown one 2 months ago that was very nice, but I don't need a brown suit. If there are any others, please let us know.

    Thanks.

    But I could use one. Johnnynorman3, I would gladly safeguard that suit (which is a great deal and should not be left to non-SF members) until which time you want it back, at which time I will claim ignorance of the existence of any such arrangement, and that the suit was a freely given gift. Thanks.

    Uncalled for. Completely uncalled for. BTW, the Maxfield Bleu second set of markdowns starts this Saturday. Are you going?

    jn3 -

    If I go (and I'm 90% sure I will) I will definitely see if there are any Isaias in 40R and let you know.

    I believe that there is a website called dailycandy.com or something that lists sales like this. Plus, if you signed up, they'll send you a postcard - usually too late. Best way is to know someone who knows. Next best way is to call.

    I saw the ballantyne cashmere v-necks in a rather lurid yellow as well as two in a nice medium grey... Not sure how long they'll last, but there are still definitely some still about as of today.

    Assuming they're at $80, if someone is willing to pick up a medium V neck (size 42) in grey from Ballantyne and mail it me I'd be glad to reimburse...
