Went at 1pm
Full house but no line
They did not ask for the invite card

Selection = OK. Some great outerwear pieces.
Prices = Generally in the -30% area. Nothing to get excited about (unless you like the idea of dropping $400-500 on a sweater or $2k on a winter coat...)

or $8500 on a Vicuna coat, down from $13,000+. Yow. Selection was pretty good for cashmere sweaters, and there was some nice material, but prices were way too high for me to bite. One cashmere sweater I liked was still a grand. I'll be there early on Thursday. Does anyone remember if they go to 90% off on the final day?

Last year they went to 90% on last day but there was basically nothing left.

Thanks, Andrew. There was a good amount of suiting left at the end of the sale last year, and there was some that I could see myself buying if it's around on Thursday.

My pleasure. That's true but if IIRC correctly, the suiting fabric was not reduced to 90% off, only about 70%, save for the blots that were only large enough for trousers, they were 90% off. If folks want to meet up there on Thursday and then grab a quick bite, we should make some plans.

Anybody notice of they had overcoats in long (or even extra-long) sizes?
post #128 of 5087
I think they were all regular sizes. There weren't that many overcoats--outerwear was mostly casual.
post #129 of 5087
Any suits or slacks?
post #130 of 5087
How much fabric would be needed for a 36/30 suit? And what if I want it to be 3-piece?
post #131 of 5087
I always wonder why we are trusted to give better advice than the tailors who have your actual pattern and have their own work habits. That said, four yards should cover you for the three piece if it is a solid. Add a quarter yard for pattern.

Ladies and Gents,

I work for the Peter Elliot Stores on the Upper East Side and I would like to post for those interested that the new outlet store opened. I will post later more details but if you're in the area I would definately say that it's worth a visit.

A little about us... When Charleston, South Carolina native Elliot Rabin arrived in New York decades ago, his sharp eye and Southern gentleman-sartorial design skills were quickly put to use by fashion houses like Oscar de la Renta, Pucci, and Givenchy. In 1977, Rabin struck out on his own and opened Peter Elliot, a men's boutique whose timelessly elegant collections rise high above the whims and vagaries of fashion fads. Fashion-savvy investment bankers and unconventional white-shoe litigators favor store staples like cotton-cashmere sweaters and navy blazers"”raised to high art in Peter Elliott's Blue"”aided by a sales team that can be counted on for tactful candor when something doesn't quite fit. Aside from his own designs, Rabin also carries Kiton, a high-end line from Italy, and Barbour sporting attire and country outerwear beloved by Brit gentry and their imitators (hullo, Madge) for eons.

Peter Elliot Outlet Store
address: 1067 Madison Avenue New York, NY 10021
cross streets: 80-81
phone: 212-570-5747

FYI, Elliot has a mix of Sanders, cheaney, and a few Martegani at 50% off. For 200ish, they are nice English staples, though nothing amazing.

Stopped in a the Loro Piana sale at lunch. Prices are now 60-70% off original retail price. Or to put it another way, still expensive, and in some cases, shockingly so. There was a women's beaded shawl for $15000. Sure, it was down from $25,000, but .

Men's outerwear is decimated. There are some nice trousers left, particularly in 34. A few nice sweaters left in all sizes. Lots of scarves, and many more boxed under the tables--these should be around on the final day. Bolts of material are now 60-80% off original price.

Much better stock left in women's clothes, particularly mid to larger sizes.

I spoke with one of the staff who said he thinks they'll take the price down again on Wednesday, to around 75% off retail for everything (except the bolts), then down to either 80 or 85% off on the on last day. A little miffed about the bolts, as I saw about a dozen which I distinctly remember from last year's sale.
