There are a bunch of sales coming up in the Boston area with something for everyone. I was talking to Gary Drinkwater, and his sale is starting on the 12th (of January,) 20-40% off pretty much everything. He has lots of classic American stuff, as well as really innovative casual pieces by Engineered Garments which remind me of CP Company in the use of cool fabrics and interesting details on basic, workwear inspired pieces; and the Mackenzie Tribe Wool/Alpaca sportsjackets in classic patterns are incredibly soft and comfortable, and will be real bargains (the retail is even pretty reasonable), not to mention a little off the beaten track from the typical Avon Celli, Malo, etc... Stel on Newbury Street will be starting their sale on Saturday. 40% off everything, pretty much, including Fake London Genius (they have a great coat,) Coast shirts, and a terrific Yoko Devereaux black/charcoal slim, hooded cashmere sportcoat that I hope someone with buy quickly to take me out of my misery, since I really want it, but can't afford it. So, there you are. Deals for both the traditionalists and the hepcats on the forum. See, one of my New Year's resolution was to espouse a kinder, gentler Styleforum. Happy New Years All.
