    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    They have a bal boot up, even though they call it a chukka for some reason.

    Looks a bit like the Shannon.

    Something's off w/ the placement of the ticket pocket, though. Isn't the ticket pocket flap usually flush with the inner side (left side) of the lower pocket flap?

    Maybe, but it's still a sweet suit. I could do without the ticket pocket altogether.

    In windy, rainy, or cold conditions, you could push up your lapels, pull the latch across your throat area to button onto the other side of the coat, where I'm assuming there would be another button to do so.

    +1.

    I have a David Chu sportcoat with such a latch, but the gorge is so high that the collar won't go around my neck, rendering it purely ornamental.

    What happens to last years stock? Do they show up at a discount anywhere? These are some very fine garments, but I just can't afford them right now.

    Paul Stuart has seasonal in-store sales, and a sample sale every two years. The last sample sale was earlier this year or at the end of 06. I don't know if there are any other sales channels for previous years' stock.

    What is the reason Stephen model in shoes priced over $800.00?
    They are very nice but still 800.00... Could it be that they are made by someone other than Grenson?

    Also I see a lot of 400+ shoes with very Rose Collection lasts making their way ...

    Those probably aren't made by Grenson, at least from past experience. Paul Stuart sells a lot of Italian-made shoes at a lower price point than the Grenson-made Stuart's Choice, which are Masterpieces. They also were selling some Stuart's Choice shoes designed by the French Alan Flusser, Marc Guyot. Those were made in Italy.

    I think it's the weak dollar sending up the pricing. I could believe the wholesale price on Grenson Masterpiece level made in England shoes to be 200GBP. So that's $400 wholesale, getting essentially to their current price. At least judging by the website, it looks like they are moving to more Italian made shoes.

    C&J Handgrade, from Pediwear (admittedly including VAT) are around $700.

    200GBP is unlikely, given that EGs wholesale price is 235GBP. A wild guess on my part would put Grenson's Masterpiece wholesale price within the 125GBP - 175GBP range.

    Very nice choice, looking for something similar myself. Unfortunately, as always, the lack of good quality clothing in Sweden leaves a lot to be desired.

    I like the look of the wool flannel vested two-button suit.

    This seems to be a bad link or is it me?

    Always love looking at the Paul Stewart window in Chicago.

    Looks like they've taken it down. It was from last fall's collection, so I guess it's gone.
