Noticed these are from Swims. The orange ones would be awesome for me if they'd fit. Only have M size left. Selling at $65 instead of $130

No accidents here. It's the ol' 'Bait 'n Switch' or just plain 'bait'; and customers don't forgive easily.
They only had medium left because preferred clientele were tipped off before the sale started.
The sooner they change that 'H' to an 'L' on the store signs, (not mentioning upgrading some of their practices) the better.
They are not competing properly to stay in business much longer.
On the chance that Mr. Rosen Sr. actually reads this..

Harry, with respect, it is time to step down completely and let Larry sink or swim on his own.
You were good for your time. Now let Larry be good for his. Bend like the willow tree and adapt.

Absolutely...in my pre-sf days, got sold a 40R suit when I'm a true 40s. I look like I'm wearing my dad's suit in that 40r. Will never buy a suit there again. ever.

I have not shopped at Harry Rosen in over five years now precisely because of the cheezy sales tactics they employ. You would think with the arrival of Brooks Brothers in Calgary Vancouver and here in TO they would smarten up a little bit. Not so.

I swear the M`s are for people with size 6 feet... I tried to get my absolutely smallest size 9 brogues (conservative cut, without lots of extra space in the front) into a M and I was at least an inch off.

I also saw the boot version Swims at Last Call in Vaughan for $69 I believe...also in only M.
