    Thanks, guys. I appreciate the expert advice. I still think I'll hold off, if they're not already gone. But when the budget does stretch, I'll know. Next clothing payment is going to be for my Vaish suit. http://66.170.193.77/cgi-bin....h;st=40

    thinking of heading over there in a short bit.

    Anybody notice if they had any extra-tall suits on the racks there? (specifically 44-x-tall)

    Funny story from the sale today... While I was looking at suits a woman stopped me and admitted she had a silly question. She thought the sample sale was for "Paul Smith," who she "loved." She didn't know "who" Paul Stuart was. I explained they had a store on Madison, that the clothes were superior to Paul Smith. She was thrilled, and ran off to find her husband.

    The pin was either a 43 or 44 Xtra tall.

    $500 for Isaia and St. Andrews? Â [​IMG] Â My wallet thanks Paul Stuart for being located in NYC and not DC.

    zjpj83 (or anyone else),

    Do you think your middle shoes (i.e. the 3rd pair of shoes in your photos) will go with a pair of jeans. I tried, but could not convince myself (read: my wife) that it works.

    So, here's my thought -- getting incredible deals on suits are, while not a dime a dozen, not an incredibly rare thing.  It happens at least on a regular basis.

    However, very rarely can you find Grensons for $180 what appears to be an incredible range of sizes, colors, and styles.  We've seen something like this twice in the past 9 months -- Bennies and this event.  

    How often can we hope for something like this to come along?

    Also, I don't get why Paul Stuart didn't hold a "fire sale" itself? If the goods were so great, and flew out the door so quickly, why not just do a Louis Boston type deal in its own space?

    The brown wholecuts? I don't think they would look right with jeans. They're great shoes, but I think they're too sleek for that. If they were suede, perhaps.

    I tend to agree... the tan wholecuts I picked up are absolutely beautiful, and I -may- try to work them in with slim jeans, but for the most part they're probably suit/slacks shoes.

    (von Rothbart @ April 12 2005,15:00) Most suits are Samuelsohn but there're some decent selections of Isaia and St. Andrews. Â At $500 they're steal. Â Fortunately, none of my sizes.

    Those are Italian made Stuart Choice, I recognize their labels they're from Isaia and SA with unfinished sleeves. Every suits $1500 or above are now $500.

    This has just ruined my day, guys. [​IMG] Oh, well, like AC I can take solace that I'm have more money for a down payment on a house now.

    zjpj83 and sashe,

    Thanks. That's what I thought. When do you usually wear tan/brown wholecuts? What color of suit/ slacks?

    You can also take comfort in the fact that you don't have to explain to your wife how you "objectively need" 5 pairs of new shoes and 3 new suits. Â [​IMG]
