    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.

    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
