    The coat looks terrific. I wish I'd been there for the sale, they have a lot of nice items.

    Given that about 80% of the store is menswear they really should have had a dude write the article. And really, the store stays the same if Bill Downes stays and continues to buy.

    I'm not from SF but I was in the store a few weeks ago. I found the sales staff to be very helpfull. They also have a very nice mens shoe selection.

    I don't live in SF either but I'm there often to visit my daughter. The staff have never failed to be utterly professional and polite. And as a Recent senior citizen I love the store and never fail to leave with a Wilkes bag or an order to be delivered to me here. I bought my first pair of Lobbs there and many pairs after along with everything a well dressed man can use. I can't wait until my next trip out to see my daughter so I can get over to Wilkes.

    I think that she was both pissy, and accurate. Lets face it, the store looks "tired". Although much better in the last few weeks than late in the summer. It was also pretty clear that they have been very low on inventory for quite a while and so the place lacked the sparkle of a store filled with special things.

    I got the feeling that she had a pre-exisitng attitude about the place that gave a pissy tone.
