    Just got back alive (barely) from the Saks sale...Holy shnikes, what a madhouse. The prices were exceptional with tons of steals to be had... My score....[​IMG] Cucinelli caramel brown leather biker jacket fully lined in cashmere was $3295, mine for $1050 Kiotn, Brioni and Bvlgari ties all about $50/each Breuer pocket squares $15/each If you can make it before noon, it's definitely worht it.
    Crap I didnt see the kiton and bvlgari ties. I picked up a massimo tie for that price though, two corneliani shirts for about 70 a pop, and a couple of trovata sweaters for a fair price. Honestly I didn't think it was a steal. It was Ok. None of the RLBL suits were on sale which broke my heart (in two, maybe even three). There were so many people there and they were fighting over 500 suits that were hideous, poorly made, and didn't even fit them all because it was on sale.

    Have to admit that I didn't look at the suits or sportcoats, at all. I focused on sportswear and furnishings. The Cucinelli stuff was especially well priced.

    I heard this past week from a salesmen at a NYC mens shop that Pal Zileri was having a sample sale today somewhere in the 50s. I don't rembember the location and I was wondering if anyone else knows anything about this sale?

    According to this AA thread, they had one six weeks ago:

    Call them to ask if there is any other.

    I hated the 26th when I worked at Saks Bev. Hills. Not only could we not park anywhere near the freaking store; but, it was just seriously stupid. The madness that comes over bargain hunters is down right disgusting. I didn't go last 26th or this year to Saks NY; but, I could only imagine the mix of tourists and Frummies going hog wild.

    A religious Jew (often used in a derogatory manner, especially when used by non-Jews)

    I wasn't familiar with the term.
    That's disappointing to see it used here . . .

    I love the Frums and then when I found out they wear wigs I became even more intrigued.

    Nothing like showing your devotion to God by not showing your hair, wearing modest shoes, not wearing pants and all of that. But, spending $400 for those Ferragamo loafers or $3500 for that black Chanel jacket...well by all means go ahead!

    I'm not using it in a derogatory manner (I am a card carrying member) but i thought it was hilarious to hear "Moishe I just bought 13 suits. It's a bargain." And I may have seen one or two frummies in my life at Saks but this morning I saw at least 10 in the mens section buying some really hideous outfits and ties.

    My friend who calls herself a Frum doesn't seem to have a problem; but, I still don't think it's the whole black people using n-i-double g-e-r type thing.

    Maybe it's more like the f-a-double g-o-t type thing ?

    As always with these terms, it depends on who is using it.

    This Faggot will continue to call them Frummies and the Frummies are free to call me a Faggot.

    All about fair trade.
