    It's their new standard 3.25 inch. I believe, that's right. As is the brown up ^

    Drakes annual factory sale is happening today, tomorrow and Saturday at their factory shop on Haberdasher street. Prices have gone up a bit compared to prior years, but still good value at 3 ties for £120 (was 90 last year). Good selection of ties and scarves, even though you start recognising the old stock they put on sale every year. Knitwear, shirts and outerwear is sparse and in large sizes.

    Thanks so much for the info on this. Have tomorrow off work so might see if I can get over to Haberdasher St.
    Was it just ties on special - or was knitwear, scarves etc also reduced?

    Everything was reduced.

    Some real deals, which I suspect would have gone quickly:

    - Caruso lightweight jackets (cashmere/silk, linen, Loro Piana silk / wool / linen blend) with a handsewn buttoniere for £150
    - Tan suede bucks for £50/pair
    - Cashmere sweaters for £70, sleeveless for £50
    - Pocket squares £20
    - Scarves from £30

    They did seem to have more stock out the back, which they were bringing out as items were sold. And they did have a big selection of wool and cashmere scarves, ties and pocket squares. Stock of everything else seemed more limited.

    Just leaving the Drake's sale. Bought a white oxford button down shirt and lambswool cable knit.
    Here's a pic of the flyer for all pricing.

    The only shoes I saw that for sale were desert shoes. Not sure if they had any others beforehand though.

    If only they had items in my size, I could easily have left with bags of stuff. Had some amazing jackets and cashmere knits but unfortunately all too large.
