I am heading down tomorrow to Kiawah and will probably stop by on Saturday. Anyone know what to expect for pricing as compared to the website outlet section?

Mercretas - shoot me a PM and I will see what I can do.

Just got back from SC to a fresh snowstorm in Boston. Had a chance to stop into the warehouse sale. Selection was mostly watch you see in the outlet section online. Shirts were about 90 for patterened shirts, no solids which was expected. Didn't see any suits, but there was a number of tweeds and odd sportcoats. Pants were odd colors and very few wools. There were a number of Alden and C&J at about 50-60% off, but sizes were at either end of the spectrum. I think most of the shoes were also floor displays. the tie selection was huge though and were the deep discounts existed. There was a huge wall of English made which were 90% Drakes and one other English maker making up the difference. Picked up 3 Drakes at 32 and one other for 31.

As I was going to down to Kiawah for the weekend and had plans to go to dinner in Charleston on Saturday night, it was worth it to stop by for me. Not worth it in my opinion to travel solely for the sale.

Yes, 50% off, so about $340 with shipping.

Thanks. I'm very pleased, as I'd been seriously weighing paying full price for them. My favorite shoe purchase in a while. Just when I thought the thrill was gone...

I didn't see any there and would've been on them if they had them in my size.

I don't know. But I think the shoes were mostly models that were being closed out.
