    I'm in Dallas for business (I'm here almost every month) and I stopped by Stanley Korshak to check out the sale merchandise. Everything is 65% off. I ended up buying a Brioni dress shirt in a blue/yellow/rust fine plaid partern, and a thick burgandy cashmere sweater. I believe the brand is FAL (?) - had never heard of the brand before but the sweater was very nice. I also
    got a few pairs of socks.

    I was tempted by a few other things. There was a Columbo cashmere sweater I almost grabbed, but too expensive. Lobb (London) oxblood monks in the style of EG Stowes, and Lobb grey-brown cap toes, both in size 10 (there were also 2 pairs of the monks in 10.5) The monks were around $440, and the captoes $380. Both fit me, but I didn't love them enough about them to buy.They have a lot of shoes in 10.5 to 12. Lobb, Suitor Mantellasi, Gravati, Borgioli. I don't remember all the shoes, but
    there are about 30-40 pairs left.

    Suits and jackets - slim pickin's. I'm a 40r, and there was just one suit - Belvest grey nailhead, 2 button, double vent. Nice, but at $1400, I'd rather visit Ian (Worlds Finest on ebay) at his wearhouse when I'm back home and pick through his selection of
    Borrelli's and Attolini's There were only 4 jackets, and none caught my fancy.

    There are tons of shirts (Kiton, Borrelli, Brioni, Lorenzi, etc), pants and sweaters still available in all sizes. Well worth a visit if you're nearby. Especially in larger sizes for suits and jackets - lots of Kiton, Belvest, Brioni, Isaia.

    I believe that FAL stands for "Fashion Active Lab". And LA Guy is right on the fit - it is not super-slim, but not generous. Order true to size if you want a fitted look.
