Tom Ford Outlet - Page 14

post #196 of 256
if anyone has second thoughts about visiting woodbury, I'd like to hear why-- I can't imagine anyone thinking it isn't worth the bus ride from manhattan to see everything from Cucinelli and Tom Ford to Zegna (and most everything in between).

It is definitely worth the trip, especially EARLY in a NYC visit, before buying too much at retail smile.gif

+1 also visit the RLPL (aka The Luxury Store) store. They carry RLPL shoes. The Brioni Store has clothing and shoes. Ask to see the Brioni shoes made by Silvano Lattanzi.

smile.gif Just bought bus tickets for April visit. Manhattan Transfer Tours, i think they are called-- it's door to door transport, should be fun.

Ya .. I don't know. I made a trip out to the Vacaville "Premium Outlet" when I was in SF last winter. Thoroughly disappointed. Prices weren't significantly better then retail, and anything that was on sale had just garbage sizing (48R suits, and size 14 shoes). It just seemed like a giant tourist trap .. filled to the tits with tourists.

Hi,

 

Well, I went to Woodbury 3 years ago and I would not go back to be honest. There is a certain price to pay for the transportation (that is ok). The place itself may not be the most beautiful or impressive place in the world but ok.

 

There are only some stores that are good to go and from there, it depends which size you wear. For me, it was not worth it because I have not found anything of my size.  

 

The "restaurants" are not that good and there is a lot of people all the time. If you can "deal" with all of that, then it should be fine.

 

Having a Tom Ford shop is more interesting, let's be honest! LOL!

yeah, of course-- the restaurants are silly mall food, but stores like loro piana, tom ford, and cucinelli? come on, Scabal! It's worth cracking your wallet for $49 to get a roundtrip bus ticket which includes pick up at your door/ hotel lobby.

Man I haven't been to Woodbury Commons in years... may have to take the 30 minute drive to get out there next time I'm back home in God's Country (NJ)! Would be worth the visit just to snoop around a bit.

They could have all the greatest stores in the world .. if sizing is garbage, it don't mean shit. I don't go shopping to see nice clothes, I go to buy. If that's the only thing out there .. and an hour+ to get out there .. ya I don't know. Seems like a pretty good chance of being disappointed.

To me .. those outlet malls remind me a lot like B&S .. 95% of the time, stock isn't my size, or are in styles aren't very good. Just think .. if they are selling it well below market value, it means no one wants to buy it. The good stuff, sells at the retail stores not the outlets. Sure, there is the odd gem .. but, Scabal confirms my suspicions of Woodbury (based on my trip to Vacaville) .. I'm not sold on it.

I thought the "restaurants" were crap to be honest. They sell the idea of "premium" outlets and they sell garbage food. I understand it is not 5th Avenue in Midtown but something a bit more decent. My opinion.

Oh, I paid a bit more than $49 to go (so near $150 for me and my wife). The price is not relevant, the "bang for the buck" to go there was not good enough for me. In 2013, $100 is about half a meal at a good restaurant, could not care less. 

 

I tend to not find anything at those places because it is bigger sizes or colors that will not sell easy in midtown... It will please some people, I'm sure. Just not me.

Hi,

 

Depends why you go to NYC. If you want to spend some quality time surrounded by nice places and items, Woodbury is not your place. It takes a good hour to go (and come back of course) , they charge you a bit over $100 (for 2) if not by bus. There are some better shops (Armani, Brioni and now Tom Ford) but the sizes there depends when you go. If they got new stock recently, you are ok, if not you are screwed. 

 

I bought 2 items (took 2 hours to find at Saks off 5h), an Armani shirt for $150 (about $250 on 5th Avenue) and a Hugo Boss belt at $45 (about $100 on 5th). Also, be prepared to be crushed by hundreds of people with bags and bags of cheap clothing (what Woodbury sells in most stores). 

 

Depends also on the level of quality you want... I thought exactly like you (they sell the stuff they got stuck with at the main stores... I wanted to buy a suit from Woodbury but nothing that impressive to be honest. Went back to Saks on 5th and I found what I needed that would fit me (6,4, 175 lbs). Today, I go see a tailor and I get what I want, a lot easier in my opinion. Too many stores and outlets "let me down". 

 

Some people are more lucky than others...
