1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    My busy schedule prevented me from going the first day. When I got there the next day shortly after 4, I was surprised to find a decent selection of Grenson Masterpieces of my size. I must be the luckiest guy, being at the right place at the right time. As I was making my selection, the salespersons started to put up further mark-down signs. So I bought six pairs of Grenson MP at $100 each for a grand total of $600. They're all beautiful shoes, not some weird cuts or colors. I'll pose some pix of the shoes over weekend if I can find time to do it.

    There're still some very good selection of shoes, like wholecuts and captoes, available for large sizes when I left.

    As for suits, I spotted one Isaia and one St. Andrews to my liking and I am holding out for a further reduction on suits this Friday.

    I may be back Thur. afternoon, let me know if any of you want me to check the shoes for you.

    If anyone sees any wholecuts or derby shoes (plain toe or with medallion) in 11.5 or 12, please let me know. I know this is taking a shot in the dark but...The shoes in pics 1 and 3 would be ideal but beggars...you know the rest. http://66.170.193.77/cgi-bin....7;st=50

    Dan was kind enough to pick up a pair of the specs for me in 9D. Thank you.

    If anyone is going back today, I am wondering if you can pick up some more Stuart Choice shoes (9D) for me. Please PM me if you are able to do so.

    Also, how was/is the selection of trousers or casual pants?

    Thank you.

    The walnut side-laced is devastatingly beautiful. 110% shoe porn material. You have to see it in person to appreciate it, the photo can't do it justice. Too bad it has none of my size. I was tempted to buy one pair as object d'art.

    I hope some of you who make it to the sale are buying some extras to put on Ebay. There are many of us who'd be willing to pay for those Grensons if the size is right.

    Can we get a listing of sizes? The 10s, 10.5s are basically cleaned out of Stuart's Choice, excepting a pair of the black angle-lace (which I just can't get into -- walnut, maybe...) The people on the lower end of the size range (9D and below, especially 7.5D, 7D) are in luck. If any of you folks are out there, speak up. Decent selection in 12.5D, 13D as well. Oh, and upon my last visit, two of the sales folk in the shoe section said hi, including one who called me a "smart shopper" for having come in twice a day since the beginning of the sale. I need help [​IMG] -s

    Does anyone find it odd that the Styleforum went ape-"ship" over this sale, and there hasn't been a peep of interest on the Ask Andy forum after a similar announcement was made?  Or has everyone used this thread as a main form of communication?  I mean a saw a fair number of Easter Egg colored trousers marked down to $40-75--that sounds like a dream for those Trad guys.

    10 and 10.5 are completely cleaned out outside of the one pair of black side-lace in 10D which were there this morning.

    Any 11s, let me know. Those side laces and the double monks are gorgeous.

    Sounds like we were thinking the same thing. I just got back and I believe they had a dark brown whole cut medallion toe in, probably, an 8 1/2 D. I wasn't interested so I didn't check it too carefully, but it MIGHT have been an 8 D. I bought a whole cut in black 8 E, but am pretty sure they had no Stuart's Choice 8 D wholecuts in black. They might have had one black side lace pair in 8 D but I personally find those a bit unattractive in person and didn't investigate.
