    Go to the Saks sale going on now...

    Today I picked up Loro Piana Olive wool covert cloth Horsey Jacket with a detachable cashmere lined vest for $508, reduced from $2550.

    Ran into SFers Dr.No and Gdl while I was browsing, too

    There are other like deals to be had![​IMG]

    At your house, when you're not there
    All junk as usual. Mostly Barneys branded clothing. The rest was crap from Boss, Burberry, and some cheap looking Canalis. The few items that were decent seemed like they'd been through hell and back. I saw the C&J suede loafers, not bad but it wasn't moving enough for me to stay there and wait in line. Also came across a paul smith jacket I already bought from Barneys over christmas and it was cheaper when I bought it. The hoodies from kidrobot were cheaper back then too. I love the crowd too...I swear frummies love this shit.

    what's a frummy?

    I think that is a bit extreme of an example since there are varying degrees of Fruminess.

    I got a good lesson in upscale fummies at Saks wathcing a few try on some Zegna suits-- in black, of course.

    I take it there is a Saks sale going on. I'll be in staying nearby at the Omni on 52nd and 5th. Might be worth a walk through on Monday...

    It does, but it's not derogatory. I actually thought socal hit it spot on about modesty if you're really interested (a couple of pages back in this thread).

    Yes, I think so. Be careful though, a LOT of their sale stuff is/gets damaged.

    If there is anything from Isaia Napoli under $1000 in 54 or 56 at C21, I sure as hell didn't see it. And I elbowed my fair share of tourists while looking. They did have plenty of basic charcoal V-model suits for $1000, though. Which isn't too shabby for a completely inoffensive, business-friendly suit.

    Also at C21 were about two dozen Brioni sportcoats (exactly the same, and not for me!) for (and my memory may be wrong) circa $600.

    Saks had a smattering of stuff-- 4 or 5 odd St Andrews suits in solid navy or charcoal for 50% off $4500, 4 St Andrews shirts for $136 each, only in size 16. 10 or 12 different Charvet ties for $50, but none that I thought I could successfully pair with a suit. 10-12 Borrelli and Brioni dress shirts scattered about for $130ish. A few inoffensive Testoni shoes on the clearance racks, but nothing for my size 13 clodhoppers.

    I bought one of the St Andrews shirts and while I wish it were a bit more tapered I gotta say I like it a lot. I'll buy more if I can ever find them anywhere at that price. The Manhattan Saks doesn't usually carry the line.

    Oh, and a few solid navy Oxxford blazers in a variety of sizes at Saks for $600. Not a great price (on any of this stuff, really) but better than you'll usually do.
