    ==edit: meant to post this on the weston sale thread...moderators, feel free to delete and move==

    - tiny store, so they only allow a handful of people to be in store at any time.

    as of 11am:
    - all men's shoes were $295, including loafers, lace-ups, and boots.

    - all women's shoes were $99.

    - ties were $40. mediocre quality.

    - belts were $130.

    - men's selection of shoes was actually good, though the selection of loafers were concentrated on burgundy calf, navy suede, and red leather. no black or brown leather loafers. plenty of lace-ups in cap-toes and brogues. lace-up boots also in good selection.

    ==
    i've been too spoiled by previous sales and couldn't justify spending $295 on Westons when i've acquired Grenson Masterpieces at $120 and below.

    Seok when did you go ? I was looking for you.

    Belts and Ties ? They must have brought them out later, there was nothing but shoes when I left at 10:15.

    Considering that the retail price on Weston shoes in most cases is now over $600, $295 sounds like a very good price. I don't think it's reasonable to expect to find regularly a decent selection of top-quality shoes selling for $120.

    I rarely find anything in my size that is heavily discounted.
    Thankfully Ron Rider is always able to help with reasonable priced quality shoes.

    I smuggled the shoes into the house, now how do I convince my wife that blue suede shoes are "not new honey, I have had them for ages" ?
    Going to have to hide them until fathers day and say they were a gift.
