    Awesome Gene!!! I went a little nuts this morning myself and spent about $300. They had 1930's Menlo jackets for $250 which must have been gone in the first 3 minutes. Those are $1000 jackets! I got on way to late.

    I got a few things on that sale, too: 1944 LVC 501s for $55, 1930s Riders Pants for $45, 1920s Sunset shirt for $35, and a wool 1930s shawl collar sweater for $59. I'm going to go broke saving all this money!

    Wonder if the orange tab stuff will be at a cheaper price point.:D as the original's were.:D

    I picked up the Sack Coat in the dark rinse.
    Nice to save 300 bucks.

    Don't hold your breath on anything you've ordered...last time I only got 2 of 3 items from vente-privee....I "ordered" the Menlo Jacket, the blanket lined Sack Coat and the blue/black pullover Sunset shirt. I hope I get em' all, but will be satisfied if I only got the Menlo.

    What I noticed about vente-privee is that the stock levels don't seem to update right away. I bought the last size of something, and I kept going back to look and it was still showing that it was available. So it is possible that either I, or someone after me may not be getting that item(?). I'm not sure how long it takes for the site to update. I'd say something like a Menlo, that was surely flying out of there, the potential for it not updating fast enough is much greater.
    Fingers crossed for you Matt!

    I would love to get my hands on this LVC 1912 Sunset Sweater Coat from 2009. But I'm sure that will be impossible.

    I purchased this Gant sweater recently. I am away until Tuesday so I dont know what it looks like in person yet.

    I also got this Double RL railroad striped shirt last week. The details are pretty nice on this one.
