Article today in San Francisco Chronicle about letter sent to customers begging them to shop. Also offered a discount "In his letter, the storied clothier's version of an economic stimulus package offered a $300 discount on purchases of at least $800 - an amount, he said, that's not difficult to ring up at his store.

Not sure if this only for past customers who received the letter or a general offer.

I read the article too. Not really surprised either. From what I hear the store has been doing poorly for a while now. Anyone around SF know if anyone can ask for the coupon?

Never been particulary impressed by Wilkes and am not suprised given the state of the economy. Went to a restaurant in SF last night and was told business is down 30% since June. People are hurting and are not going to spend on frivolous things like a $2000 on a robe from Wilkes.

I received the letter/coupon. I don't believe it is generally available.
