    Linus sale report:

    Clothes are made in Romania/Poland from Italian/German fabrics. Fused, but nicely cut in a European style. Prices are outstanding.

    My haul: cocoa widewale cord slacks, $50. camel thin wale cord slacks (cotton/cashmere), $75. Lightweight 2B charcoal suit, $200. 2-ply french cuff spread colllar shirts, $50/$60.

    Total for 1 suit, 3 shirts, 2 slacks: $485.

    There were some really nice anthracite and camel SB wool topcoats for $200, and a bunch of basic flatfront slacks in nice wool fabrics for $50-75.

    I definitely recommend for style on a budget!

    Thanks for the report. What size are you? Did you see stock in 38R/ 32 pants? How is the selection on accessories?

    didn't look for 38 but I am pretty sure they had some. you could certainly call.

    the jackets run a bit roomy -- I am in between 42 and 44, and their 42 fit me very well. pants true to size.

    not much in accessories -- some merino sweaters ($75?) and a few ties, but not many. didn't see scarves, gloves, etc. no shoes.

    Went to the Zanella sale, it was a mad house but I did walk about with three trousers for $112 a piece. Also hit up C21 and picked up 4 ties (2 H&B and 2 Battistoni).

    Was really impressed by Barney's private label shoe offerings, anyone know who makes them? They had a split toe loafer and a chelsea boot that were as nice as many well known makers at very affordable prices ($350 - $425).

    Maybe Peluso (a complete stab in the dark) or Mantellassi (based on the way the label is sometimes sewn). I do think their house shoes are getting better, and because they go on drastic reduction, can be a very good value. I bought a pair of suede chelsea boots with a rubber sole for like $40 at the warehouse sale.

    So since you all are pretty on top of these things, I'm wondering if you might offer info/advice on going to these. I've been to a few, and sometimes, felt that things were still way too expensive, or selection was just off. But I get the impression from reading this thread there are better/worse times to go. Can someone explain this? Is it true that prices drop near the ends of these? Is it a case of either arriving at the very beginning or very end? Or do you keep checking back over the course of the period? I'd like to frequent more, but I just can't budget gobs of bargain-hunting time, so looking to refine the technique.

    Advice greatly appreciated.

    Depends on how much I like the brand and the sale's proximity to me.

    As an example, during a Paul Stuart sale I would go on the first day to get the best shoes for myself at full sale price, then pop in at the end to grab the stuff that seems to only appeal to me, usually for a song.

    If it's a brand that I'm neutral about I'll wait to the end for the deals.
