    Nope. That was the only specific name he dropped. That said, if they were in fact there, it's clear the level of people the sale was intended for.

    I have a former co-worker of mine who works for Tom Ford in Vegas, he told me about woodbury some time ago, but he believes the first run thru of merch is going to be shipped from the wholesalers like NM and Saks where the 36 short and 56l suits sit there for seasons on end. He isn't sure what the stores will be sending as typically the merch is sold at a reasonable pace once it is put on sale, he seemed to think shoes could be a possibility, but not much by way of shirting.

    I'm excited though!

    TF is tricky on the wholesale order side. If your NM you buy it in stores where you think its going to sell. IE a store with a ton of local and tourist foot traffic. Best example I can tell you is the Chicago store. Sure there are a lot of people who can afford 5700 off the rack for a flashy/stylish suit coming into or living in that market. But how many with that money work in a field where they would want to purchase one?

    You buy a size run, and the first to sell are probably 40/42 and an occasion 44 for say a guy who normally takes a 42 but wants more room in the shoulder. The larger and smaller sizes sit there for some time. Depending on if it is a seasonal suit it gets discounted or if its a solid color they think they can sell year round at full price like black/navy it just sits there until sold.

    I think 36S would sit if they made more than 2 each season. Those two are sold at retail price for popular brands.

    Not sure how TF works on the whole sale side, they might be REQUIRED to buy 2 of each size, even though there is clear demand for a 40 or 42...EX they might sell those the first day they put them out and would rather have purchased 6 in that size and non in the 36 or 46. I don't think they work like that, but if your doing a size run, the smallest and largest always sit there longer. I honestly think it comes down to there is a min. amount you produce of something to bring the cost of production in line with what your selling it for, and then in the luxury goods world you have to sell everything or else it just sits there taking up someones space, be it space on the floor at NM, space on the floor in your own stores, or space in your outlet stores...

    I was at the etro outlet the other day and curiously asked what happened to stuff that didn't sell there. They told me, oh it sells here and pointed to some accessories that I know for a fact were at least 4 years old. Mind you they are now 75% off the outlet price, which is already 1/2 of the retail price. Mind you they still weren't flying off the shelves.

    So now I have a reason to drive down to NY and stop off at Woodbury now. I am happy and mad at the same time.

    Who wants to bet on prices? $5700 suit for only $3000! When I was in Miami I was looking at the selection a store had of TF there. They were selling a navy blazer for $4500. I don't think I'll ever be able to justify buying TF. Well... if I were a decamillionaire maybe... But OTR TF doesn't even fit me too well. Ug, why did I write this post?

    I was thinking around $3000 too. That would be keeping with the prices at the Brioni outlet at Woodbury.
