The sales are now coming thick and fast, here are some more.
I have visited all of the sales below, except for Pringle, which I visited last week (before the sale started). It is worth noting that several of these brands have stores at other locations. See their websites for locations.
Ok the first on our list and one of the best, is Moss Bros. Their sale started Thursday morning. For me the high point of this sale is the large discounts on their Canali suits and shirts (Moss Bros handles the Canali brand in England). Canali’s shirts have been exceptionally elegant this season and if you want to buy them cheap, run, do not walk, to this sale. They have a very engaging salesman by the name of Andy, who will do you a deal.

This is a superb sale for a brand that is on a real roll, their revamped, redesigned range is elegant and classy. I shopped there two days ago and the sale has great prices. Their magnificent men’s knitwear is selling at ridiculously cheap prices and I bought some. Put this sale at the top of your list.

Hilditch and Key
Always a good sale at Hilditch and Key, and they have started a little earlier this year. Top bargains (IMO) here are their Sea Island shirts and their corduroys. Also if you are a smart chap, you could buy your favourite girl a pair of H&K’s classic ladies pyjamas. As always they are classy, classic and discreetly sexy. Late Christmas present at a great price, if you are smart….

Crombie (closing down sale)
Classic Scottish brand. The prices at this store have been cut to the bone, because they are closing this store in favour of their seriously stylish new store in Conduit Street. Buy here for the prices but do visit the Conduit Street store, it is an Aladdin’s cave of smart menswear.

The bargains here are in their own brand suits. Herbie Frogg make ready-to-wear English-cut suits in classic fabrics (Pinstripe, Prince of Wales Check, Grey Flannel, etc) Well made in good quality wools, there are deep discounts on these. Their ready-to-wear shirts are good too, having a more dramatic (wider, deeper) collar than that of many brands. These shirts suit bigger men better than small collars.

New brand, suits and casual wear with a younger, lighter, edgy design. Suits are good value here.

Pringle of Scotland
As mentioned in the intro this one just in so did not get to look in the store for the sale. However this season’s men’s knitwear at Pringle was near-perfect, elegant styles and original colours. If the knitwear is up for grabs then I intend to have some.

Bad-boy sexy shoes from one of England’s shoe-makers with attitude, currently at the top of their game. Like their peers Jeffery West (whose shoes they stock and are also in the sale) they design and sell shoes for dandies and sharp-dressed men. Also Italian brands with attitude, such as Dolce and Gabbana. This one will sell out.

A note on Corduroys
Why, you ask, do I keep mentioning Corduroys in my sales listings? Simple, my friend Stephen is on the hunt for good Corduroys, so I am keeping tabs in the sales. So far we have Hilditch and Key and Roderick Charles – more as I find them. There you go Stephen.
Something you want in the sales? Post a comment and if I find it I will post it and email you.
