1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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 had a BUNCH. I mean maybe half a rack of 3pc Tom Fords. Some were weird with little metal spike things outlining the lapels and such, but some were normal(ish). I plan on grabbing a few when I go back. It's only 15 minutes away.


    I would assume it's only local. The mall is a outlet mall, basically. Sears Outlet, Saks Outlet, etc. Every big store there is an outlet. But I really have no idea on how confined the sales might be. It seems like their clearance rack is always 40% off, and the racks were extremely full at my NMLC

    It's also worth noting these were marked down a few times. You can see 4 different tags on them each with the same "compare to" price but with a new lowered price and a red dot meaning 40% off.

    Nataku that PRL is great! I feel like @eazye scooped up a very similar one for himself a year or two ago.

    damn! I just bought one of these based on the fact that I saw you had posted a few of them, apparently they don't move to well on the bay

    Why not just hang on to those for a few months and try again - they are still a bit out of season (POLAR VORTEX) but might do better come May or June?

    Could I chain several of them together to fit a size 39 waist, now that's the question.

    I'd say check it out once just for the sake of it...maybe when you happen to be closer by, and on a day when they have an extra percent off store-wide or on whatever you're looking for (the website for your local store should list upcoming extra sales / events). I'd approach it with no expectations, and resolve not to buy something just to justify the drive there and back (because you might end up driving another 3 hours round-trip to return it).
    I've never seen one that was a stand-alone store; always grouped with Saks Off Fifth and other shops - sort of like the typical outlet mall but more indoor mall-like and less outlet-like.


    Tom Ford I've never seen at a NMLC, so that's cool - maybe some stores stock brands that others do not... My local had plenty of Etro, Boglioli, Cantarelli, some Brioni, everyday stuff like Lucky Brand, Robt Graham etc. The extra 40% off is a decent deal if it's something you're buying to keep or gift. Clearance racks were full of some good items, but not all of it was on clearance - 2 or 3 times I grabbed something and it turned out it was on the clearance rack by mistake.

    The Saks Off Fifth there was mostly stocked with Saks brands and a smattering of others - lot of hanger flipping and picked up only 2 shirts.

    Either NMLC or SOF - forget which - gives an extra discount on some items if you give them your email address...but that's tied into the "extra % off" signs on some of the racks...meaning, you buy something off that rack and you only get the extra % off if you give your email address (and you can do the same on subsequent visits - you still get the extra discount even if they already have your email address).

    I would ask u to try em on for me, but tbh, a chubby guy in those colors schemes may be a bit too snazzy for me.
