X-post from SW&D...thought it may interest some of you

So I managed to beat some of the flippers to a few things...some may end up on B&S as I want to try and finance some XMas gifts for my kids, but overall a cool experience. Got to see where most of their stuff is made (the Made in USA stuff) and they had a cool sample room with lots of one offs. Employees were nice as hell. They said people were camped out at 6:30AM so I'm sure they were pro flippers...if you're into Schott check eBay the next few days for some cool leather coats, but don't expect to pay sample sale prices...


Anyway, a brief visual:



A couple of items I got:
Nice Wool Plaid "shirt jacket"...heavy as hell, Made in Canada

And this bitchin' denim peacoat...a smaple that wasn't quite finished, their first foray into denim...brought it to Ercoles to finish up (pattern was still in the pocket) Can't wait to wear this:


Anyway, it just down the block from my favorite Portuguese steakhouse, Valencia where they serve Filet on a Stone and you get to cook your own steak on a hot stone at your table with garlic butter and olive oil to taste...mmmm. Curious to see if any of you guys made it out and what you scored.
