    Are we talking about E Zegna, not Zzegna are we?

    I always thought the shoe section was alright, especially on the streetwear side. For those looking for quality dress shoes, it's pretty much only Corthay, Ermenegildo Zegna, the most expensive Salvatore Ferragamos and the two most expensive Prada shoes.

    Regarding the last sentence: I'd say that's accurate. Because of that, I would advise those who are into high-end designer brands and wear small(er) sized clothing not to wait for sales if you want it badly enough and will regret it if you don't get it. This is especially the case with streetwear shoes. Granted, restocks sometimes happen but one shouldn't count on that.

    No charcoal from what I remember. There were some different blues but I don't remember if there was anything in any shade of solid blue.

    Nordstrom is my last hope for size 36S/38S Eidos OTR. Don't fail me now!

    But who am I kidding, that's likely not going to happen.

    Saks didn't bring in any size 36/46 suits or jackets from Isaia or Corneliani. There were one or two Ermenegildo Zegna suits in 36/46 but one of them was black.

    There aren't enough of us in the 36 range for most of these stores to justify carrying them.

    E. Zegna although they do carry Zzegna as well.

    The solid navy suit that I was talking about was actually the 15mil15 fabric line.

    Green, beige, stone.

    No idea on remaining size, if any.

    PSA: Samuelsohn for Saks is now discounted by another 15% (online only). Sports coats for as low as $340 CAD, and suits for as low as $470 CAD. I think Saks covers the duties on anything over $100 shipped to Canada, but double check the website to be sure.

    I've been considering a Spier and Mackay navy blazer so this is definitely of interest to me. Would Saks at Eaton's carry something similar to see how the fit is? I'm a 40, but with an athletic build so the term "classic fit" makes this a risk when it's final sale.

    They just opened a showroom at 20 Toronto St. (5 min walk from Eaton Centre).

    Edit: I have fairly broad shoulders and the contemporary fit (not the slim fit) was a better fit for me when I tried it on.

    My apologies. I meant somewhere to try on the Navy Blazer posted above (Samuelsohn), which is on sale at Saks.

    Stopped by the Spier & Mackay shop on 20 Toronto Street yesterday. Really nice space with a ton of selection! Ran into Rick while I was there and it looks like they're set for big things.

    Picked up a shirt but will definitely be going back. Surprised that off the rack the quality and fit was as good as some of the custom made items I had made down the street for 4 times the price....Definitely my go to RTW shop downtown now (and thinking about MTM as well!)

    Just a heads up that the Eaton's Center J. Crew has the Crosby Legacy Blazer in 40R (and possibly other sizes) for ~$180 taxes in. I bought the 38R but may be returning it, in case anyone is interested.

    EDIT: This is down from the regular price of $5xx

    Stopped by Saks today and it looks like some items dropped to over 75% over.

    Standouts include an Isaia suit in a plaid pattern (only saw a large size) for just over $1K, Zegna ties for about $65 + tax, and a really crazy pair of RLPL dressy cargo trousers marked down from $700 to just over $100 (it's the rebranded RLPL, but still a cool looking trouser).

    Picking up a pair of casual Zegna trousers for just over $100.

    Did you happen to check the samuelsohn/saks inhouse prices? Someone here mentioned they were on sale, but I'm owndering if they'll drop further.

    I swung by the downtown Saks around 2 PM, but didn't really find anything noteworthy and the tailored clothing stock in size 38 or 40 was fairly slim. The rebranded RLBL sale stuff was still at 70% off (which is pretty darn good to be honest), and most of the other items didn't really seem to be discounted all that much further, however most of it could have sold earlier in the morning when the store opened.

    The Samuelsohn for Saks stuff was only on sale online. In all honesty, I didn't see any Samuelsohn tailored pieces at the downtown Saks store.

    That's disappointing. But thanks for the info. how much are the RLPL suits after the 70% off?
