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.

    How about size 38 suits? Should I even bother if I am looking for 2 basic 38 suits and a few trousers?

    One of the guys said that he thought the price may drop to 80% off on Friday afternoon.

    If you're waiting be aware that they close early on Friday - 5:00.

    There were some markdowns on ties (10/$150) and shoes (only stuarts choice were tassel loafers (11). People really bought up all the size 16 and 16.5 neck dres shirts. There were only a few garish ones left.

    I was there at the beginning of the sale on the first day. I didn't see even one tie I was interested in, let alone ten.

    I think that as far as sample sales are concerned, the Paul Stuart sale has the best dressed shoppers by far.




    Mine was $110, as were a few others I saw. They had a crazy grey with large windowpane tweed that was 4 meters or more, and a few others. Also, there were a few good jacket materials when I looked, but the selection was very limited. And did you see the one that said 50% wool, 50% paper? Paper?



    If some kind soul can describe this fabric better, it would be much appreciated. Good for jackets only or possibly suitings?

    Much thanks

    It is a medium/dark grey with a purple windowpane. 3.5 meters, $110. Heavy tweed, only for outerwear or a heavy sportcoat. I kind of liked it, but the windowpane is large and the grey would be a hard sportcoat color. Pass.

    A few minor discounts. 80% off now on sweaters, shirts, sportcoats and pants. 75% on outerwear and suits. Shoes are marked down a little, but what does it matter. Tried on a pair of silk loafers for my tux, but they were a little big. Pass. I did get a few ties, but that's it.

    Oh, and I talked to one of the PS guys (a menswear buyer, I believe) for a while. He sounded disappointed with the sale and suggested they won't be doing one for a while. Could just have been bluster designed to get me to buy.

    Thanks for the update. I may have to run by on my way uptown.

    In size M? I tried that on this morning and liked it a lot. Beautiful cut and nice light fabric. The PS guy was giving me the hard sell, and offered me 80% off, but I wasn't sure I needed it, and IIRC, the fabric is a wool/nylon blend.

    That's the one. It fits me perfectly of the rack. fabric is indeed a blend but great hand, I actually thought it was cashmere when I first grabbed it.

    My SA indicated further cuts were likely tomorrow morning around 9:30 (shhhh)

    I had the exact same thought. It will be interesting to see how it wears. Really a nice looking coat. Congrats.

    What is general pricing on suits, and is there a large inventory of larger sizes, i.e. 44-46?

    ........had to go back for a second bite of the apple.......suits @ $250, sports jackets @4150, outerwear @ 80% off and all shoes @ $79.

    Obviously even more unremarkable selection, but picked up a dark blue woven cashmere scarf for $48 and a sports jacket.

    Prices at giveaway level tomorrow..........assuming you want what's left.

    Lots of women's apparel left....wonder how women perceive PS?
