    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Don't worry. With the amount of lurkers/flippers on here I'm sure there will be a boatload of Drake's wares on B&S/eBay in no time.

    I learned the hard way that with sales like this, especially for really popular brands like Drakes, to go right when they open if I can. Otherwise the good stuff gets taken! But of course most people can't just leave work at 10:45 AM to go buy discounted ties...

    I think this can be considered an emergency.

    ^^^^ Those weren't out when I went yesterday. I don't think anyone can say that there arent any more of a particular item, they hadn't even opened several boxes when I was there. They didn't have enough room to lay it all out at once. It might be worth calling or rummaging through boxes - I think the staff will let you. . .

    I'm debating whether to go back tomorrow.

    At the Drake's sale in London pretty much everything was gone in the first half an hour. I spoke with one of the guys there and he said they should've implemented a maximum purchase that people were allowed. Edward Green had a maximum of 5 pairs of shoes per person. With such a popular brand like Drake's stuff will get bought by everyone, I don't think they need to rely on the people buying in bulk. Also, I don't think they'll be so happy to have their stuff appear on eBay and else where for discount prices.

    If this is directed at me, I picked it up yesterday afternoon when I was rummaging through the back.
    I'll probably go back tomorrow as well. Want to avoid the weekend shoppers

    I got one of these yesterday. Blue with lighter blue and pink geometric. I just called to see if they had anymore today and was told there were only 2. Evidently we accounted for them on this thread.

    i picked one up early yesterday morning in a similar design-it was on the table behind the register still in a box. the price may have been a mismarked-it was $65. I purchased a couple other scarves and this was the most inexpensive of the bunch.

    i didn't see any others as I surely would've grabbed them,

    At the risk of being a spammer, please PM me if you would be willing to proxy a couple pocket squares.
