    The Mansion has the following in stock:
    Stern
    Barksdale
    Grant
    Peering
    Eden
    Montgomery
    Hutton

    Anyone know what the last two are?


    Montgomery is wing cap brogued monkstrap avaialble in black only. Hutton, I believe, is the Malvern on the 888 in chestnut.

    Black label is on sale as well I assume? Anyone see any interesting prices? I was hoping to get something to wear during the warm weather.

    I was told black label will be 30% + the 20% kicker. Not too bad. I'm having them hold a mid/charcoal grey glencheck BL suit for me.

    Thanks for the heads up Aportnoy

    Just picked up a pair of Antique Chestnut Grants in size 12 at the B.H. store.

    I was told there was another size 12 pair at the Chicago store, but that's all they have for Chestnut 12s.

    Some stuff is 30%, but you won't know until you ask as they still getting their acts together.

    not too bad, but you're still talking about a $800-900 suit black label, no?

    Not worth it. I thought it might compare somewhat to the december sale but I guess not.

    That's still a very good price on a suit that normally goes for over $2k, is nicely styled and is fully canvassed.

    The RLPL suit & shoe deals during this sale are also pretty sweet - I'm impressed!

    I guess we should expect the same for Purple Label?

    So, is absolutely everything on the website/in the store on sale, or will there be only special items included in this amount?

    A couple quick points/questions:

    I believe they also have the Barend shoe at the Mansion - it is the EG Malvern wingtip.

    It was my understanding that the black label suits are 1/2 canvessed...am I mistaken?

    What was the December sale? 40 + 15?

    so the mansion has more BL suit choices than online? i don't see the glen check suit mentioned on their website. does this mean i should call in as well to have them hold something for me? unfortunately i'm a hard to find size (36) and BL just happens to be of quality and have this size...

    Unless they've changed fairly recently, they're fully canvassed.

    Fully canvassed now, as the Doc says.

    I think the changeover from half-canvassed was Fall 06.

    Yes, that's my read too.
