    I noticed that Drake's grenadines are now going for $225 at Harry's.

    I literally grabbed a shirt and jacket off the rack in the morning! I was working in the warehouse when I got the call. Good experience though. First time on tele for me! Thanks Nick and BNN.

    Well presented guys. Good to see familiar faces on TV.

    I wish you guys were there for a better reason rather than talk about our tanking dollar.

    Grenson Stanleys on sale at club Monaco on Bloor for $69 (down from $405). OK so these are the india-made grensons, but $69!!

    Thanks for the PSA and welcome to the forum! Do you know what sizes were available? Black or tan?

    Thanks...been lurking for months..

    I bought the stanleys in size 9UK in a navy...they had a navy eight too and a few of the tans..size 11 and a few smaller...didn't see any blacks....sizes on grensons are crazy nowadays..im usually a UK10.5 (C&J, Sanders) and a 10.5 in Grenson would have been fine a few years ago too....but they appear to be vanity sizing their shoes now!! UK9 was a good fit.

    they also had a lot of Mark McNairy shoes...styling is a bit forward but they are made by Sanders so the quality is good....prices weren't as heavily discounted at the grensons ....McNairys were down to around $160.....still a good price for Sanders made in England shoes.....exactly the same shoes (with different customising) that BB Black Fleece sell at a much higher rmark up.

    I bought the boot versions of these a couple of years ago and they barely lasted six months......annoying for $400 but I can cope with that for under $70....I find the one redeeming feature with grenson G2s is that there's no breaking in period....comfortable out of the box...they will make for good beaters...
