Just received an email notification that Slowear (Incotex, Zanone etc) is having a sample sale in NYC from Nov 7-10. As I will not be in town I thought to share it with those who may be interested. Apparently things are at least 65% off 10am - 530pm 9th floor 135 5th Ave (at 20th st) Enjoy
I believe Mina was last in London in July and am sure she will be back No excuses!

Biggest disappointment was the limited fabric selection but will hold off judgement on the quality and fit until I receive the shirt
