colour coded prices Red being top price £120, other than 'A' graded stock which was around 10% off + (stupid pricing for apparently current season, which was bollocks as the g/f picked up some trousers that were from last summer and they wanted £220 for them)

suits have been split so it was some find trying to locate a match, but I picked out a 3 button jacket which was £120 and the trousers were £80, and although I liked it it wasn't such a bargain. Plenty of blazers, boiled wool 2 button slim fits were £60. For me the bargains were the boots, knits and a the odd coat/jacket.

Not a fan of Paul Smith but he has a sample sale on this weekend with upto 75% off. I can't remember the details but it was in the Metro this evening, so if anyone has a copy feel free to elaborate. It's at the Truman's Brewery. I was near there at the weekend at Kounter Kulture so if it's the same place it is off Brick Lane.

Yea, I left just before you posted that comment, j, big mistake. Sizing was crazy, no mens shoes at all and suits were awful to be honest. Certainly was cheap though. If you're a fan of their jeans and are a funny size like 30W 35L then pop down maybe.

Didnt seem like anything special to me. They had a lot of relaxed fit stuff there and some raw denim. I didnt bother trying any of it on but it was all pretty standard. I guess what they have on show keeps changing throughout the day so maybe it might be better now

I went on Sat and Sunday - definitely disagree with the negative comments!

Got a few chunky mainline wool jumpers for £20 each, some jeans and a couple of mainline suits for £100 a pop (size 40 - was plenty of normal sizes and colours I thought (a lot less on Sat though).

Was some awesome bargains when it first opened (umbrellas for £5 and a box full of men's shoes that I saw through the window) but they were all taken by the time I got in there.

Managed to pop to the Duchamp sample sale afterwards. Prices had gone up since the same sale last year but was relaly good none the less!
