What about George Greene?
Does George Greene ever have significant sales?
Need to resurrect this thread Chi-town!
for what, after 2 years?
I for one would like to get know when Saks is going 60% off. Some excellent outerwear, and sport coats I want to jump on.
call the store and ask......
No idea how I got this far in life without this kind of insight. Thank you!
I wasn't being sarcastic.........why ask the question here when you could ask the people who would know best?
Your screen name is ironic.....
In Vigilant's defense, sometimes sales people are snooty about this or pretend they don't know. Usually they will be candid about it if it's a Sales Associate you have bought a lot of stuff from. Also, Saks does mailers FYI. I know they were doing some 40 or 50% off in the AM on the 26th, but I am not sure when it will apply for good.
RL store on Michigan is having a great sale right now. Additional 30% off already marked down items throughout the entire store.. Picked up a pair of purple label gloves for $90, down from $195....
Lots of accessories (scarves, gloves, hats) and ties on sale at Neiman Marcus (Mich Ave). A lot of the ties were great, prices ranging from $50-$120 i I recall correctly. There were a lot of cool ties there, some in house brand, but Kiton and Brioni and the like as well.
Saw several pairs of Bally Scribe at the Nordstrom Rack in the loop for $250. All the pairs I saw were black. One plain toe blucher in US 12.5D, a double monk strap in 13.5D IIRC, and a non-brogued wingtip in 13E. I didn't look thru smaller sizes.
I saw some very nice bally white/gray suede bucks for about that price at that nordstrom rack, as well as some non-cordovan ralph lauren shoes. They probably have some good stuff in every size.
Was at Nordstrom Rack on State St this weekend and saw a couple of decent pieces of outerwear. A simple, mid-blue Herno puffer in a EU 48, a Barbour Bedale or Beaufort in a US 38, and another classic Barbour that was tagged an L. There was also a pretty solid Jack Spade mac raincoat in a M that would be a nice basic, staple for someone. Shoes were kinda meh. Some pretty nice Ermenegildo Zegna pocket squares in linen, but not quite cheap enough imo @ about $39 a piece.
where are the pocket squares located? I never see anything besides the usual cheap stuff.
I'm not sure how far south on Michigan Ave. you are, but you may get more out of walking. If you walk over to south State St. there are quite a few stores. You may see something that you like. Then, you can walk back over to Michigan after you've crossed the river. That's the way that I'd do it.
IMO, the BB on Lasalle is no better/worse than the one on Michigan. If you're a Brooks guy, then you'll like it.
