I was going to start a Vancouver Sales Thread but I figured that would be dead quick so I'll just post here. I browsed the Harry Rosen and Holt Renfrew summer sales in Vancouver. Abso...lutely....nothing.......interesting.......... Ok a few slight temptations: Holt -- everything up to 40% off. Which usually meant 10-20% on most things. Charvet ties down to $124. Yay. The new Ralph Lauren store was as lifeless as before. The only RLPL gear I saw were socks. Canali had a few nice suits in the sales racks. Some nice fabrics in normal sizes at $1100... which all considered is a pretty good deal for Vancouver. Harry Rosen -- Summer sale as well but about the same story. The shoe selection is still better since Holt's actually managed to get worse when they moved. Rosen had just a few Canali shoes on sale and no AE's. Nothing caught my eye except for one Canali that only had one size -- a burnt brown derby in sz 8 -- only one available at $399 down from 5 something. Obviously not a great deal but I'm trying to find something positive. The Bay -- 20% off Ray-Bans, my only purchase today You weren't looking hard enough. Ralph Lauren has two boutiques in Holt... one is sportswear and there is a separate sartorial shop next to MTM with all RLPL and Black Label. I was there last week though and sadly they have no new fall stock. They still have some of the sale stuff there (60% off!) too bad they didn't have anything in my size. I asked the staff there about it and they said that the RLPL deliveries were late yet again. You are right though about the shoe selection at Holt. It is not as good as it was before. I'm hoping that will change. I hate buying shoes and I dislike even more buying boring shoes. On topic re: tailors, has anyone tried Olympia Tailors? http://www.olympiatailors.com/ . They are located on Hastings and Nanaimo. I took one of my suits there for fitting by referral and I was impressed with the recommendations they made and the work they did. I haven't tried anything else with them but I wanted to see if there were any other opinions on this business. Awesome that there is an active Vancouver sartorial thread. I think it is part of our moral duty to up the style quotient of this city.
