If you talk to to the SAs at Holts, they have some interesting theories as to why foot traffic is so low.

Either, papers reported they were giving up the lease on the men’s store.

fyi, they had a Brioni suit in 38R back in February for $1300 CAD (80% off). That’s Samuelsohn level pricing.

was tempted, but the cut didn’t quite work for me.
Wow......one.....whole......suit?

J/K!

Although your constant scouting for deals is to be commended, you seem to have way to much time on your hands for this interest/addiction dude.

but good for you if you can always get 80% off on stuff you actually buy - I’m not a believer :)

Enjoy!

Holts used to carry a lot of RL. They had Poloclassic tailoring, and the handmade purple label line. Wish they still carried it.

They also had a bonkers outlet until a few years ago. It was an ugly space, but with Tom Ford SCs at $500 CAD, I wasn’t complaining. They even carried John Lobb for a few hundred bucks.

It’s less of an addiction than it is...well an addiction.

But seriously, I do enjoy going to Holts and Harry’s regularly. I genuinely appreciate CM.

The Brioni example was for illustrative purposes. I’ve gotten Canali suits for $499 from there as well. Again, common sizes.

And yes, Brioni shoes have been pretty ugly lately.

I remember that, but never shopped at it. It was a good move to close it down actually, because they're a luxury store. If they don't want the same fate as Eaton's they have to cater to a certain demographic.

Very nice! The only deal that was better that I recall, is of a fellow on SF who posted a receipt of going to an invite-only TF sample sale, but it got permanently axed because his frat buddy’s dad spent 6 figures on stuff at over 90% off. After that abuse, the sales ended. It was mentioned in a thread on SF years ago.

The outlet was far away from DT so I never really bothered, but glad you got some amazing deals.

Brief update on Tom's Place: they were unfortunately out of stock in Corneliani suits under 38R.

I did manage to find 5 Corneliani shirts in 15 3/4, which were cashed out at $60 (including a really nice causal one in white linen). There's still lots of stock in 16, but you may have to do some digging to find styles you like.

I strolled over to Sacks on 5th after to see what the Corneliani shirts were retailing for there ($350). Was good for a chuckle...

FYI they had tons of sport shirts.
That's good to know. If I find my way to Kensington in the near future, I'll see what's left during their Black Friday sale.

I can't explain why, but I've always found the term "sport shirt" to be weird. I had a few sport shirts from Spier and Mackay but I sent them all to LuxeSwap for consignment because I no longer enjoyed wearing them. My more casual, work appropriate button up shirts tend to come from mid-tier mall brands like Club Monaco or contemporary workwear brands like Engineered Garments and Monitaly.

Check the front and back of each shirt you want to buy to make sure everything is okay, if you know what I’m saying.

Well now that Toronto is going under lockdown on Monday with all non-essential retail stores closing, I guess Tom’s Place and many other retailers are going to take an even bigger hit.

Also vacation starts on Monday, so I guess I’ll be having lots of time to spend around the house...... What are you gentlemen doing to pass the time?

Hey guys, Harry Rosen PSA.

Ties are currently 60% off on the website. But if you enter SD50 at checkout, it takes an additional $20 off.

But Subtotal has to be at least $100 for the code to work.

For example, you can get a Tom Ford tie at 60% off $295, which equals $117. With the code it’s $97, so 66% off.

are these brand name ties still worth the money even at such a deep discount?
