    Do Paul Stuart accept returns? Can someone pick up a jacket for me?

    Went to the sale at about 5 and here is what there was:

    A wide range of suits, almost no solids (there were some navy herringbones and a couple navy worsteds -- IIRC, although they may have been gabardines -- with weird-looking darts that were not appealing at all to me); there were a range of grey stripes, a few navy small windowpanes and a lot of tan-range patterns (herringbones, plaids, birdseye, basket-weave) and other random greens, blues, etc.

    An even wider range of sportcoats, almost all summer bright colors, although a few fall colors (rust-red and darker greens and khakis-tans)

    There were a few overcoats (dark green, dark blue -- cord and cotton, I think) that were ok

    The only Phineas I saw were an uninspiring but not unattractive unlined heavy cotton jacket in a dark green-red-greyish houndstooth or check pattern

    No shirts, belts, shoes

    There was a table of flimsy and uninspiring ties as well

    Prices:

    Suits -- $299
    Sport coats/blazers -- $99/$199
    Ties -- $25

    Overall, worth going if you're interested in a fun summer or fall sport coat or a cheap suit to fill a hole in your collection (again, very few basics)

    I'm a 38-39 and found almost nothing; there were a lot of larger sizes (44+) and some things in 40-43 range

    Hope this helps, and I'm happy to answer any specific questions people have if I remember

    Is the PS sale in their store or elsewhere?

    There were a few (maybe 3 or 4) 39 Talls (PS also has a "Semi-Tall" size in between R and Tall). I don't recall which coats, though.

    No small stuff though?

    Stopped by the Paul Stuart sale with a fellow forumite. Very limited stock in smaller sizes (one decent 36S short suit). If you are a size 40, There is a beautiful overcoat for $299. Ties were an ok value at $25 (a few English made goods). Make sure to check for snags.

    No shoes or accessories.

    BTW, Massimo Bizzocchi has a pretty good discount at their West Village location. A few pieces of Sartorio on sale for 65% off (from 3-4kish for suitings) and a variety of dress shoes in the range of 1-1.2k minus 65%. They also have a select number of Sabelt driving shoes for $50 each. Similar to Tod's for a very attractive price.

    checked out the PS sale yesterday, a few partially-lined Isaia made suits in 44 and 45 that's good value @ 300.

    Anyone checked out the Wearhouse sale?

    I was at the Warehouse sale this morning at 8:30. Suits seemed the same as usual - no basics, no high end Italians. Shoes were sparser and crappier than ever, though I did see people leaving with Harris boxes. The selection in sports coats was better than I expected, as was outerwear. There was a lot of sportswear. I picked up a pair of Rag and Bone dry demins for $120.
