    The Jay Kos sample sale has lots of boys stuff for the dads/grampas out there. For the men, basket of mostly Gallo socks are $5/pair. Ties are $10 each (I picked up three ties , pair of socks and moss green suede belt w/contrast stitching for $50 total). There are a few cashmere turtlenecks at $50 (from $795), and more cotton and wool sweaters. Shirts are $25, as are the pants (!) (I picked up a blue/green plaid go to hell pair that I rather like, originally $300.)

    120 E. 56, Suite 930.

    Will some kind SF be willing to pick up say 5 - 10 pairs of the gallo socks for me. Colourful ones will be much appreciated. I no longer live near NY.

    Thanks

    Pretty much all of the men's stuff is gone unless you are a size 38-46 in pants (38 only a few cords, maybe a wool pant or two) and shirts if you are a size 15. Socks are down to those big thick hunting wool socks. Ties there are a lot of, but they are thrown in a box and you really have to want one to go through that mess. If you have a son, there is a ton of stuff and that is what I mostly purchased. Also those surcingle belts that I despise, a boxload of that. Some wool sweaters for those that are borderline big boy/small man size (32-36). I did pick up a pair of size 36 oatmeal tweed Valentini's but I might keep those and have them tailored to fit and also a pair of grey wool flat front size 32 pants (last pair) that I'll put on the B/S at cost ($25) plus shipping/paypal.

    Kos had hats (battered felts) in small sizes and large. I didn't see any between 71/8 and 71/2.

    The amazing thing is that the Chicago PS is the opposite...... Literally, left alone as there was no one else on the floor.

    That's an aberration as the Chicago store has the identical modus operandi as the NYC store.

    Finally made it PS NYC.
    The 'sale' is a joke.
    I did get a navy blazer though.
    Service was suprisingly efficient.
    I should add that I was in a rush and didn't waste time with browsing or chit-chat.

    Check them carefully though, a lot of them have issues (pulls, ripped keepers etc)

    WIth the exception of the striped ones, I'd say about 3/4 of the H&B ties have pulls, stains, etc. With these on clearance, I wonder if they're oging to replenish the regular racks (I sorely hope they do).

    Also, re: Jay Kos, be careful w/ the shirts. Some of them have been sitting folded for a long while it seems like and have developed stains (almost rust colored) along the fold creases. I'm going to wash one of the shirts I picked up in hopes that I can get it out, but who knows.

    Went to the Jay Kos sale today. Most trousers were either 34 or 42-44. Most hats were small (55cm). A couple (as in 2) size 17 stripey shirts, nothing bigger. Lots of boys stuff for $25, if you happen to have one.

    She said they may get more stock next week.
