Manhattan Sales Alert!! - Page 362

post #5416 of 5439
Too late to matter because it is over now, but I was there this afternoon.

There were some nice things in sportcoats and outwear. The were marked down to discount at 75% off some pretty ridiculous "retail" prices. Think 75% off 9k for those or 75% off 3k for shoes; Sweaters were 80% off but still expensive when retail is over 1k and some sweaters a lot more. There were some nice ties for 90 that if i really wanted I might have bought but I really don't need more tires. Very few shirts and suits by the time I got there. On the whole, no deals and not that much stuff. Not really worth a trip.

FWIW, I have bought some things at prior Kiton sample sales and I recall the prices being better.

Loro Piana sample sale at SF coming up: is it worth going to?

 

Reviews every year seem to bash it. 

post #5418 of 5439
I stopped going to it several years ago. Prices and selection were always poor. I believe it is basically stuff they pull from their outlets, not overstock of current season. You can often do much better at end of season sales at retailers, if you have your heart set on LP.

If you like the brand and are close enough e.g. Less that a 45 min trip, then possibly yes, but you will not find too many deals. I have gone a number f times and LP is just a very expensive brand. So, sometimes have some really nice stuff, but the discount is off the ״retail״ price, which seems high to me frankly.

We are talking about over $200 for a simple cashmere sweater and so on, as I recall. Most outerwear comes in over $1000.

Who knows, maybe this one will be different

We're offering a huge sale at www.yellowhookshop.com on all of our single needle American made dress shirts. I may be biased, but I'm pretty sure you won't find a men's dress shirt made in the US with this much attention to detail. Use the code "CelebrateBoston" at checkout and Heirloom button downs and Spread Collar Dress shirts are all $125. These are all cut by hand, no computerized cutting or pattern drafting and all utilize single needle stitching which makes them a bit more durable in how they hold up to cleanings. Most of the American made shirts on the market are double needle and utilize glue at the side seems....you'll really only see this kind of construction on bespoke shirts here in the US.

Single needle stitching offers a much cleaner appearance, and will never pucker and is MUCH stronger. It's also a much more expensive undertaking. Double needle stitching is a one-part process that doesn't require much skill. With single needle stitching, especially on the side seams, it requires not only the experience of highly skilled experienced shirt maker, but double the time it takes to construct compared to that of a double needle shirt. Single needle stitching is, in fact, a two-step process, and hence requires twice the time, and even more than twice the skill. You simply can't compare our single needle shirts to those made in factories using the double needle process.

Our spread collars all use Japanese Sun Washed Chambray (in both a classic blue and light grey) and our button downs are all classic English Oxford Cloth and one limited edition red Japanese Sun Washed Chambray. The real steal here though, is the Italian Denim (a Loro Piana Cotton shirting we found) that's limited to this one run. Once it's gone, it's gone for good and we were only able to make about 20 units.



All have gorgeous MOP buttons and feature our signature yellow side gusset. We'll be featuring these AT THIS PRICE at all of our future American Field Pop-Ups, and wanted SF members to be able to get first crack at these. You can check out our affiliate thread for info on sizing and fit:
