Who makes the SCs for Drakes?
D'oh, PutThisOn had featured one of these on their weekly eBay round up and loved the idea of them. Was hoping to snag one when I went down there tomorrow, but looks like I won't get the chance to.
I checked a tag for size and it was unmistakeably Caruso.
Someone should post up at 2 Bond and just do proxy services for like a 20% markup. State your conditions clearly, i.e. send me a pic/brief description of what you want and send the $ via paypal. Add $X for shipping and your item(s) will post in a day or two with tracking. I will not take measurements nor send pictures.
I'd be lying if I said it didn't cross my mind to hop on a plane and stake up at the shop over the weekend
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.
Picked up one of these. I might go back and take a look again soon
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...
How much was this? If you don't mind me asking, you can PM me if you want.
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.
I think 95?
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
was looking for some as well and didn't see any
