    i saw this. im interested in going down. any idea of how big a discount there will be?

    Well worth going. Suit lengths are £30-40 each, with shorter lengths (jacket or trouser) being £5-20. They have a wide range, and more boxes out the back to replenish stock.

    My purchases;

    - 'Kaleidescope' flannel in dark grey with an jade chalkstripe
    - 'Snowy river' mid blue
    - 'Target' dove grey
    - 'Target' Mid-grey PoW / glen plaid with a blue overcheck

    Those are fantastic prices at least in comparison to their Indian retail prices.

    You didn't get anything to flip on the B & S ?

    The staff were an absolute pleasure to deal with, and seemed to be almost gleefully telling customers what the retail price was on the bolts they were buying!

    Nothing to flip today, but given they are re-stocking I may make another trip tomorrow for myself and pick up a couple of lengths to flip.

    They all have the book woven into the selvedge. Yours sound lovely - I will admit I prefer the heavier cloths, and most of what they had was on the lighter end of the spectrum. Beautiful cloth though.

    I'll post photos when I get them home - currently sitting under my desk. Who will be making yours up?

    they had tonnes like this. mostly dark blues/greys/browns, so the glenplaid was very subtle. not like the PoW/glenplaid stuff we talked about in my other thread.

    suit length? i will pick up some if i make it back tomorrow if you commit to the 35pounds. cant really go wrong at that price.

    ^^ That price is ridiculously nice. But I want a glen check with a prominent blue overcheck. Base check can be blue, grey or brown. Also a solid air force blue would be very nice. But on second thoughts, your offer is too nice. I will take any nice check. I think your taste matches mine when it comes to glen check. Were there any cashmere / frescos ? Something like the 5 in this pic [​IMG] or something like this which hopefully should be much easier to find Pic by Andrew Roger [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I would be interested in any plain navy/charcoal (minor weave/herringbone included) in lighter weight fabrics.

    so i went back today and bought 12 suit lengths of various stuff.

    most of it is conservative with one or two interesting pieces.

    keep your eyes peeled on B&S for some bargains

    Semi-PSA: Barney's outlet at Woodbury has solid navy RLBL suits for $798. If you can find a coupon pretty good deal for a solid navy. I saw one 38R and two 40R's when I was there on Saturday. Didn't look at any other sizes.
