    Anyone willing to proxy a 42l sport coat in a trade with a Filson bag?

    Did anyone notice that they are charging sales tax if you buy 2 or more ties, even though it's exempt if each item is under $110 ?

    I pointed it out to the guy but he insisted that you calculate it based on whether the entire purchase is $110. Should've asked him to ring up each tie separately.

    Were the guys ringing people up English and unfamiliar with the tax code in NYC?

    I also don't recall which accessories are not exempt. Was it leather belts?

    I'd appreciate it if you could check on whether they have a black and white glen check silk tie, and if so, the width. Thanks! (And apologies for repeating an earlier question.)

    Did they have any of the Cashmere/Silk reversable madder scarves left? I would love to have one of those.

    All the ties have been put out. Still a lot left, but some of things members have picked up seem to be gone from the allotment.

    Some great deals on all cashmere scarves in the back @ $95. Didn't pick one up myself b/c I couldn't justify another cash scarf -- but good deal nonetheless.

    Just got back and it was as good as advertised! Got the brown SC, 1 tie, 2 shirts and a scarf. Pretty amazing deals! SC is definitely Caruso. The SC is pretty slim but sleeves are really long and have working cuffs. I'm going to take it to my tailor tomorrow morning and see what she says about taking it up from the shoulder. List price was £1,195 and they were selling all SCs for $295. The pocket squares and SCs were picked through but they had plenty left of everything else. They didn't have any 16 shirts out on the floor, but they rummaged through a box and came up with a half dozen so definitely not everything is unpacked. Still have tons of ties, scarves, sweaters, etc.

    On a Drake's related note, I went to a NM Last Call (Philly) yesterday to get a cashmere wrap for my wife for Xmas and found they had gotten a bunch more Drake's ties in that all were an additional 40% off. Picked up these 2. The wool tie on the left was $40 (they had it for $65 at CHCM today) and the silk/cotton tie was $32.

    I've just come back. They do have a lot of the thinner 7cm ties, but I picked up a couple regardless because they were so darn nice and one I'm wearing to a wedding in the spring. The Fair Isles are mostly in larger sizes, (I took one of the last few 38s) but they have a lot of other vests. There are a few mogul-print square scarves left, which are kind of an odd shape, but I bought one anyway. There are a lot of the dotted reversible scarves, but not any madders or other prints. Plenty of knit scarves and a few cashmere plaids. There are not a lot of pocket squares left in colorways that are extremely versatile. Mostly brights. A bunch of shirts, some socks in silk and cashmere, a smattering of sports coats, all in larger sizes, a shelf of knit gloves and hats. (Bad phone pic below of my haul)

    Those Mughal print scarves would make great pocket squares. Im not feeling them as scarves though, seems too much like the Hermes wraps that women wear.

    They do have a PS version. I grabbed one.
