    Just returned from the sale where I tried on that very same suit (43R in dark brown). Loved it but it was too long . . .ticket pocket, good shape, substantial fabric.

    (johnnynorman3 @ April 15 2005,08:25) Z, I assume there were no suitings in my size? Â You should set up a shoe store, BTW.
    No Stuart's Choice, I'm afraid. Â [​IMG] Yeah, I'll try to get pics of the stuff I don't want up sometime this afternoon. Â I'm going to keep most. Â Those I don't I'll probably offer for $100 and those that don't sell I'll put on Ebay. Z
    Why don't you just sell 'em the the other guys here who couldn't go? PS was nice enough to sell you the shoes at a stupid price, I wouldn't hurt their reputation flogging their wares on Ebay. PS guy asked me how I heard of the sale. When I told him here, he was not happy. I would argue that it's better to sell to us than the avg consumer. We appreciate the quality and don't do things to hurt their reputation. Also, most of the guys here aren't 4 suit kinda guys. It's not like we buy suits only when we need them; we buy we we "need" them so are gonna stay PS customers. PS guy was very nice, but you could tell that giving away all that great stuff killed him.

    I could have sworn I just saw someone there who looked familiar -- maybe from a forum picture. Slim gentleman, dark hair combed back, fair complexion, trying on a tan corduroy jacket with leather arm patches -- anyone here? I was wearing a white linen shirt and jeans and cruising through the 44R suits.

    I couldn't resist -- picked up a 100% cashmere caramel with tan and dark brown windowpane 2bt sportcoat for $75, and a grey with pale blue/dark grey super 100s suit for $225, as well as a pair 7.5D tan Stuart's Choice loafers for $25...

    They were doing markdowns as I stood there -- pretty crazy. Narrowly missed buying a grey 3btn pinstripe with ticket pocket suit as a gentleman I'd seen in there a few times made off with it. Curses.

    Why?  A sale is a sale.  This thread is increasing the number of buyers, which PS should want.

    Please God, let this end. I already spent enough and found a nice selection of things, but my dreams are haunted by a rack of Stuart Choice shoes, in my size and various shades of antique brown, for <$50. For those of you who live outside the NYC area, don't feel any regrets. Even though we buy our footwear on discount, many of the posters probably pay about double or quadruple your rent (or mortgage payment for the lucky few).

    Unless you're size 7 or 6.5, that dream is unlikely to be true [​IMG] I bought the last pair of non-tassel loafers in 7.5D, and other than that... well, anything between 9-12 is sold, as best as I could tell (probably some culprit here, I bet [​IMG]

    Seemed like he didn't want the regular PS customers to hear about it. He was very concerned about hurting the brand. He said this was very painful. Said they wouldn't have another one for as long as possible. His best quote was reminicent of Bobby Knight, "With this sale, we just close our eyes and hope it'll be over.

    That's very true. My wife and I had been into the PS store -once-, and found it just a bit intimidating due to the large staff to client ratio. The clothing was certainly nice, but we didn't really know -how- nice. We'll certainly return now (although with the huge pile of things I picked up for my wife and myself, probably should hold off for a bit [​IMG] -s

    Can someone please post more information about this item and what are the current prices? Remember you are not just shoppers but our eyes and wallets at this event.

    Stuart's Choice suits (over $1500) (of which there are almost none left) are $250. Any suits over $1000 are $225. $750-1000 are $150 (I believe), and below is below [​IMG] -s

    Hello,

    By any chance, are you planning to return to the sale? Would you be willing to pick up the brown 43R suit for me? I live in that fine metropolis called Poughkeepsie (last station on the metro-north). Will reimburse + 6 pack good beer?


    One of the posters stated that it ran long. If it is more than 31.5", please pass on it.

    Thanks

    Shoes are wiped out and everything else is going fast now that prices are so low. I picked up three pair of Stuart's Choice in 7D to ebay and hopefully curb some of the damages from this sale. Before I ebay the lot, any interested member is welcome to them for $75 shipped. Shoes are:

    - brown suede loafers
    - black wholecut medallions
    - black wholecut w/brogueing (same style as the pic on page 21 of this thread)

    PM me if interested.

    In the immortal words of Jeff Spicoli --- "You Dick." And that goes for all of you who are able to swing down to this sale to buy $10,000 of amazing PS clothes and shoes for, like, $199 or so. Dang I'm jealous.
