    I wouldn't say the 48 selection was small. There were about 30 sportcoats, including staples. The selection of suits and outerwear was much smaller in 48. I wonder if they offered these selections to regular clients first. If not, and I were a regular, I would not be pleased.

    Huh? Do you understand the concept of a sample sale?

    For any size 36 guys out there looking for something special they had one Euro 46 suit in a brown Glen Plaid. Single breasted, peak lapels, 2 buttons with flat front pants and side tab adjusters. Retail was $5,500, so figure about $1,350 plus tax to take it home.

    Tie selection was kinda weak, but there were plenty of really delicate cashmere ties, most untipped and many many with that untipped fringe edge thing they do. Next to the ties was a selection of belts in lots of bright colors. I didn't pay close attention to those. Behind the belt/tie counter it looked like there were a few wallets and leather bags.

    My impression of the shoes was that your typical balmoral was retailing for $3k, so you'd be looking at $750 plus tax. I think that's probably a good deal given the quality. Looked like a decent selection from 9 up with a mix of conservative dress shoes and suede casuals (although I wouldnt be surprised if sizing was off just based on my eyeball estimate - looked to runa little big to me).

    Lots of jackets, suits and outerwear. guys from size 38 up to 44 should have plenty to look at. Also lots of pants and a decent amount of shirts in the equivalent sizes.

    Relatively small selection of knitwear, but that may have been picked over heaviest in the opening hours (I got there around 2:00pm).

    If someone has a hankering for fancy socks there are 70% cashmere 30% silk socks in sizes from 9 up to around 12 or 13. price comes to $50 a pair after discount. Cotton socks are $15 a pair, but a small selection.

    I may not post cheap clothing on the B&S forum but yes, I do understand the concept of a sample sale.

    Was at the sale at 9am.being a sample size pickings were good.nailed a shearling overcoat $1500(gorgeous olive green), a12ply dark purple sweater in cashmere for $600, a beautiful denim blue suitcase for 800 and two NApoli trousers ( with the red metal buttons) for 250 apiece.fairly crowded when I left at 10.30. Belts were pricey despite the discount(minimum 75%off retail).
