    If you are in the Bay Area, here is a heads-up. The American Rag store on Van Ness just started their 75% off sale today. Quite a few PDC, Diesel, G Star and Levi's Premium jeans at very cheap prices. I picked up four pairs of Levi's Premium and one pair of Paper Denim's for $140, total. Good deal.

    Also, the Hugo Boss outlet in Gilroy had a very large selection of Baldessarini (Boss' $2000+ top end model) suits. About 50% were marked at $599 and the other 50% at $900-$1200, and there was an additional 20% off sale going on (I'm not sure if the sale is still going, you might want to call.) Lot's of very unique and very cool fabrics.

    last weekend when I went to gilroy versace and movado were also having sales, the versace stuff was 40% off the lowest tagged price and movado was just 70% off, but versace had nothing very interesting except some shirts that were all way too big for me and I definitely dont need another watch.

    Since when did not needing another watch translate into not acquiring another watch?

    that's definitely a question for the ages.

    don't you find the baldessarini suits to be somewhat grandfatherish in choice of styling and fabric?

    They'e well made, but still too boxy (I guess that's the Boss house style) and square for my taste.

    let me rephrase, its not so much that I dont need one, its more about that after what Ive spent on watches and clothes this month I cant afford another one at the current time

    The cut is not my taste (very much like Zegna, my shoulders are too big to carry it off) but that is just because they don't fit me well. It could be a whole different story for someone else. The fabrics, on the other hand, were not grandfatherish at all. I think it was the most interesting fabric selection I've seen anywhere, for a long time.

    you must be lucky with your selection
    the corporate hugo boss outlet store in canada only seems to get the really old manish looking baldessarini suits, heavy thick tweeds and herringbone wools or nubby boucle type wools, not very becoming at all if you're under 50, in my opinion

    The fabrics that I've seen are indeed, very nice (unfortunately, the salesman didn't have a clue as to what mill they use).
