    Is the overcoat you are talking about green and in cotton? It is nice but I passed at $199 b/c it is too hard to use.
    Was it unlined moleskin cotton in dark green? Did you see any in 42R by chance?

    came back from the wearhouse sale, actually for the bigger size ,46 to 48, there are good selection of Isaia, Battisoni and lavin suits. Picked up an light gray Isaia suit, for about 900 bucks. Not steal price, but I've been looking for a solid light gray suit for a while now.

    I swung by the Warehouse sale earlier. Was in and out in 10 minutes. Didn't see much but I did see a dark brown C&J Cottesmore jodphur boot in 11 1/2 for about $319. Had some creases but still looked really nice. Would have bought it had it been my size.

    [​IMG] Didn't notice those, but didn't spend long looking on the wrong size racks.

    Yes. No, only 40R.

    Went to the Warehouse sale today. Came away with some socks and a Drakes scarf. The socks were Barney's labeled "handlinked toe, made in England" and looked close enough to Panterellas that I decided to try them.

    Found some 7 fold ties (or were they double 4 fold?) by Battistoni $97 and Kiton $117, but too rich for my blood. Or at least they didn't look good enough to spend that kind of money on them.

    Found a nice HF Mainline at the Barney's sale today in a solid charcoal - 42L. Not exactly a steal at $599, but if it's still around when they drop further later this week, would be a great pickup for a color that one can rarely find on sale.

    I would have probably bought it had I not just come from the Mansion and tried on the same color suit in the Black Label, which fit me perfectly. The HF seemed extremely baggy by comparison.

    is there a general timeline as to when the next round of cuts are made at the warehouse sale?

    From what i recall, different items are marked down at different rates, is this correct?

    I think it's after a week. The sale is long.

    Yes, different items get marked down differently, and some items within each category go further, like Barneys label shoes, and jackets/suits with a specific type of tag.

    Not really Manhattan; but, there is an Alfred Dunhill sale on Gilt that I just got an email about.

    Yeah, I really end up liking Dunhill, got excited when I sat that. Rag&Bone coming up soon, too.

    no solid tie at PS.

    surprising there were suits and sport coats in extremely small sizes like 36 Short. but they fit and look awkward with their gigantic lapels. Definitely no basic suits/sport coats, all very dandy.

    the best stuff is > size 40 and especially > size 46


    Paul Stuart sale have any fabric for sale?

    Nope. It was a weird sale--not sure if it's over. It was in an otherwise empty, dirty, poorly lit storefront. We've been spoiled by Soiffer Haskin. I almost bought a Michael Drake for Paul Stuart tie, but didn't love it. There was a pretty cool 3 patch pocket Zegna cashmere/cotton brown corduroy suit, but it fit closer to a 40 than the tagged 38.

    Speaking of SH, the Tourneau sale is on again soon:
