    Good sale but I guess the first time is always the best with these things, so no $300 Drake's sports jackets or cashmere vests this time around.

    Some very nice wool challis ties - great fabrics, basic 3-fold construction, untipped so probably won't compare very well to EG Cappelli but I think good value at $65 per tie. Squares were $30, but there were a lot of bandannas mixed in with the squares so you have to be careful. I found a nice moss green paisley bandanna. Bow ties were $25 also in some great wool challis designs - very similar if not the exact same pattern that used to be on the EG Cappelli home page.

    The Ring Jacket stuff looks great and prices seemed decent but sizing seems way off. I was with a friend who is generally a 36-38 and he could not even get into the cotton action-back blazer that was tagged a 36, I think.

    Also, be forewarned - the place is a sweatbox.

    Unfortunately, no Sweetu this time around either.

    All in all, definitely worth checking out if you're in the area and in need of some tie/scarf accessories.

    I would rather spend sub $60 for a Drakes tie vs full price for a Cappelli. I have a number of Cappellis and they are great but I don't obsess about ties as I once did or as others still do on SF.

    C21 downtown has a clearance going on. From what I saw, there's some ETON shirts for $39.99; Corneliani suits for $329-350; LBM suits around $270; Canali suits around $750; Brioni at $1500; a lot of ties on sale, some with minor defects, some in good shape by Canali, Zegna, Tom Ford, etc. for $30-50.

    Didn't look at streetwear, but that had some stuff on clearance too.

    That location makes sense for J Press. Did Alex Shoe Repair relocate. I thought they did good work.

    Agreed - and the shine guys were second only to the guys at Eddie's in Rock Center basement.

    I also don't know if they relo'd anywhere.

    FWIW, I have a cobbler on the UES (Lenox Hill) that I love -- does very good work at a reasonable price. PM me if interested.

    I use the same cobbler and he is indeed terrific.

    Not really a sale, but a good deal for those in NY who likes the Kamakura MTM service
