    Dropped by Asprey in NYC today and they had 70% off shoes, 60% off RTW and 50% off jewelry. Assorted housewares were on sale too.
    In the shoes: lots of loafers and sneakers in all sizes. There were quite a few boots as well. There was a nice brown monkstrap and brown suede wingtip. Also, they had the shoe trees stacked out in the open, probably due to the high demand from the last sale.[​IMG]
    All the ties were 60% off, nice selection.
    The RTW was still quite pricey, even with the discount. Lots of polos, shirts, sweaters, jackets, sport coats, overcoats and trousers, in all sizes.

    Did you happen to note the general prices of the shoes? Were they in the 400 range, or 200 range?

    Probably right in the middle as the EGs are priced between $800-$1000 and the Lattanzis are all about $1100, save the exotics which are $3500.

    Correct, but the last time they had the 60% off sale, the acorn and black brogues were off of already-reduced prices (675).

    As you may recall, the chestnut brogue, which was the IDENTICAL shoe, was 60% off the full 1100.

    I do remember the that but the shoes that i saw were all marked at regular pricing with no intermediate markdowns taken. Though I won't for sure until tomorrow.[​IMG]

    Is there any way to pin this thread so it's always one of the first few? Just seems that we'll be using this for quite a while...

    Ugh - I can't go to Asprey until the weekend. I'm really busy with work this week. Please don't buy all the EGs!

    Anyone have a quality guide to Hickey by Hickey Freeman? I believe that sale starts today.

    I think the Hickey stuff is fused but more stylish than the standard boardroom-ready H-F stuff. Their bid for the youth market. Print ads featured an irritatingly styled twig of a lad, but the clothes are all right looking.

    If you happen to be in downtown Brooklyn: I was in Daffy's on Atlantic Ave on Sat, where they had an OK selection of RLPL loafters -- the rubber soled ones -- in different colors. Size selection skewed larger. Also some RLPL leather soled sandals, simply styled. Daffy's prices were 100 or 150.

    They also had a slew of these loafers at dafy's on 57th St/Lex.

    Who made those RLPL loafers? I assume those loafers weren't made by EG?

    They're Italian made. The leather is very soft, but doesn't have a ton of character. Maybe a driving shoe is supposed to be that way. One thing I like about the Polo loafers is that they have a penny loafer strap over the vamp. A bit more masculine IMO. Still, I don't get a lot of the fascinatio with driving loafers like that -- they seem way too casual with anything more dressy than linen pants, but they don't seem comfortable enough to wear with jeans while bumming around the city. Maybe they are a country club type shoe -- i.e. for hanging out on the lawn. In any event, $150 seems about right, but it's not a deal that I've jumped at.

    These (PRL Bentley's) fit kinda narrow, in case anyone is wondering, and have a driver-type rubber block sole. Nice leather, but a little pointy for my taste.
    Here they are on the polo site

    I concur, they are ok, but not something I have to have. I still prefer JP Tods. Though, GVH is currently offering a few pair of either alligator or crocs in a honey color that are quite nice.

    Get thee to Asprey. The sale is ON, run by soiffer-haskin on site, third floor. Long wait to get in, but great deals on shoes in small and big sizes.

    EGs are selling from between $203 and $350.
    LAttanzi shell cordovan 1400-70% (only a couple of pairs left)
    Lattanzi tan blucher 1100-70%
    Some cool suede chukkas in several colors in large (11.5US) sizes, maybe a couple of smalls.

    The EG black plaintoe blucher is ($800-70%). We talked about this shoe last sale time. It was selling for $400 back then, and now it's even cheaper.

    All EGs are marked inside as "(sizeUK)/(sizeUS) E 202"

    There are no more size 11US in anything except the big green Wellington boots and some white canvas shoes.

    RTW is 60% off, meaning its still really expensive.

    The RTW is still way too high at only 60% off, at the sample sale it was 90% off. The shoes sound tempting but the line sounds daunting.

    Were there any shoe trees left and how much were they?

    I went there. There were only four choice of jackets - two of them are so loud that they are not wearable by the average population, the other two, one is a navy blue blazer and the other a seersucker jacket. Construction of the jackets did not impress me. To sum it up, not worth the trip to go up there.
