    Andrew, a store in Atlanta, is about to no longer carry Paul Smith. Apparently, the store is being converted into a Y-3 boutique. I go there a lot and the owner, Andrew, is a cool guy.

    Anyway, he's got a lot of Paul Smith shirts and ties marked down 60%. His full retail prices are high, but 60% off is still good. I was in there today and picked up a shirt and tie as well as a black fading pinstripe 3-button suit. Full retail on the suit was $1200. I paid $480. He has about 8-9 suits left. Mostly 42Rs at really good prices. Also, he has lots of PS cufflinks too, if you're interested. You can check out his site at andrewatlanta.com. You can email him for sizes, etc. Most of his shirts were in the 15.5-17 range in size, FYI.

    I am in no way affiliated with Andrew, just wanted to pass along the info for any Paul Smith fans out there looking for a great deal on what he's got left.

    Thanks for the tip... I really love Paul Smith but I haven't bought anything lately because the prices are outrageous (at least in the US).  However, I just placed a huge order through Andrew's web site for a bunch of shirts, wallets, belts, and cuff links.  They had some unbelievable deals, particularly on accessories, so thanks again.  

    PS: If anyone else is interested, I called the store and was advised that pretty much everything they have left is up on the web site.

    His site is slow. But not as slow as AskAndy's.

    Well, I ordered a couple of pocket squares. Thanks for the heads up. Looks like quite a bonanza for you Paul Smith fans.

    And the site is awfully slow...

    Are these the Made in Italy Paul Smith shirts? Also I haven;t bought Paul SMith for some time so are these shirts of a slim nature? Thank you.

    Alan: I ordered a bunch too; I-emailed Andrew like 20 min before placing my order and he told me the pink one was sold out. He said the blue stripes and dog pattern were in stock, and that he only had one each of the multi stripes and naked lady patterns left (hope I got them). LabelKing: I asked about the shirt cuts and was told the one I was looking at ran "slightly slim." I ordered the green striped one if you're curious. Edit: Damn, just heard the blue stripe sold out too [​IMG]. But he processed the rest so I think I got the last multi stripe and naked lady ones [​IMG]

    All the stripes are sold out as is the red check. He said everything else ought to be available, for the moment anyway.

    I bought the hand cufflinks. However I considered ordering the shirts but they only have a size 15 which I fear might be a bit large.

    Does anyone know how the shirts fit? They look slim in the pictures. I am concerned that the sleeves won't be long enough. Edited to add: Regardless of the sleeve fit, I ordered a couple shirts. And a couple hankies. And some cuff links. I think my credit card just burst into flames.

    Wow, I'm sorry I was gone all day and missed some of the best stuff. Excellent post, I know this stuff is trendy, but I for one dig it.

    I don't have the capacity, but there'd be some good ebay flippage potential, the Brits pay out of range for some of this stuff.

    Heh I think I might cave in and order some cuff links on top of what I've ordered already. What do you guys like among the selection? I'm thinking about either the traffic lights, one of the nudie holograms, or the shirts, any thoughts. The peace signs have great color schemes, but seem too hippie for me.

    Re: shirt fit: I haven't tried one on in my size, but as I mentioned earlier I was told "slightly slim" as to the cut. I'm a 15.5 and he said the sleeve length for that size was 34", if that helps.

    The main line shirts are ultra-slim, but there is only one main line shirt on that site - I would say "slightly slim" is pretty accurate for the London line (which all of the other shirts are).

    Bryce, what are the other differences between main line and London shirts? I saw a few main-line striped shirts at Neiman's that looked exactly the same, and with the possible exception of cut, the only difference I could see was that the main line's had that neat contrasting fabric on the inside folds of the cuffs, where as the London's did not. That was somewhat disappointing, but I really wanted a green striped shirt, so I decided to deal.
