    I don't think it'll be online. It's an off-site sale. Call them up for more info.

    Any idea on how big the shoe sale will be? (Not that I need any). I had heard that about 9 months ago there were some golden deals on shoes.

    Why the last day special?  Was it because of further reduction?  Are there going to be any Stuart's Choice/Grenson Masterpieces?

    I just noticed this isn't even at the Paul Stuart store. What the heck do they even make available at this type of sale? I doubt, for example, that they will have Stuart's Choice suits on sale for $600, right? Is this just their awful inventory that they've never moved at all?

    The address is a venue where sample sales are usually held. I think there was a mention of a Malo sample sale a month or two ago that was at that location, too. Merchandise is hit or miss as it is with most sample sales. Since PS had their Grenson shoes on sale for so long, I doubt many good pairs will make this sale. I doubt it's worth a special trip, but someone will probably report back after stopping by.

    My guess is that, like many sample sales, there will be a lot of knitwear. I got some amazing sweaters at the Asprey sample sale.

    This Paul Stuart sale is run regularly by an outside company which stages similar sales for other stores and manufacturers. E.g., it runs sales for Loro Piana.

    I believe that the company is called Sofa or something like that.

    The sale is held in the auditorium of a school or union hall affiliated the apparel trade at Seventh Avenue near 41st Street.

    It appears that this is a consolidation sale.

    My wife went to the Paul Stuart sale a few years ago. She picked-up two pairs of shoes for me which were both first rate. (Paul Stuart Select)

    I have visited some of the Loro Piana sales. Some of them sold pre-packaged cuts of suitings.

    These sales, like all bargain sales, are hit and miss. It's worth a visit if it's not out of your way.

    Cheers.

    I guess this is what PS does rather than sell to someone like Filene's Basement. (Although I do recall seeing a couple of PS sweaters at a DC Filene's back in the mid or late 1990s.) Sure wish I could make it to NY.

    How is PS quality-wise? are the jackets canvased?

    Yes, fully canvassed.

    If you get a chance, walk by their window displays around the corner from the Madison Avenue side. There's a half-finished suit jacket on display that shows the canvas lining.

    I don't think all their stuff is canvassed.  I scored a great PS jacket at a thrift shop, but it's almost certainly fused.

    EDIT: I checked again and the jacket is canvassed. It's a coarser navy material and I think that threw me off the first time.

    Who knows with older stuff. All the newer stuff is made by Isaia, St. Andrews, or Samuelsohn I think. None of those companies does fused products I don't think.

    Just to clarify my previous post, I have been a PS customer for only a few years, but one of my girlfriend's family members has been working at PS for the last 10 years. He is proud of the product he sells, and rightly so. Unlike some "high fashion brands" or even Ralph Lauren (Blue Label), PS would never sell $1200 fused suits to its discerning customers.

    I cannot speak to the suits PS made more than 10 years ago, but when my father and his brother were starting out as lawyers in New York in the late '70's, the purchase of a Paul Stuart suit was a sign that you had "made good." I highly doubt that the quality then was lower than it is today.
