    An old thread mentioned that the T&A boutiques have a sale on RTW shirts each summer. Is this still true? If so, when is it?

    I stopped by the PDC sale. As of 12 pm, the room was surprisingly calm and clean. All the jeans are on hangers, which makes for nice shopping. Seemed to be about ten pair per size, in a couple of washes. For size 31 (my PDC size), I only looked at a pair of medium/dark wash GTO boot cut.

    Prices were 1 pair for $75 (so-so) or 2 for $120 (pretty good). I assume you can mix and match guys and girls jeans for the 2 for $120 deal.

    Shirts and stuff were a little high for what you get IMO. $60 for button down and $30 or so for tees. They had cord blazers for women for $50 I think, which seemed like a pretty good deal.

    Well at least they don't have to transport the goods very far... Probably selling the inventory of the Asprey store downstairs...

    Maybe they will apply the same discount to the Trump merchandise they sell there. That way I can buy a really bad tie to match my equally bad shirt, with equally bad cufflinks and watch.

    Financially I am just recovering from the last sale. I thought several hedge funds rescued Asprey from the near certain demise of their US operation. I didn't think they would have a sale after that.

    I guess I'll concentrate on the summer stuff. No more overcoats or man-bags this time. If the cashmere sport coats are out however...

    I don't like the location at all. At least at Metropolitan Pavillion, you only compete with people in-the-know. At Trump Tower Atrium, you have to compete with tourists and riff-raff in addition to those in-the-know.

    It's not a bad idea to take that Friday off, it doesn't look professional to walk into office with 4 or 5 over-stuffed brown shopping bags.

    Crap. I'm out of town that Sunday. Otherwise I'd be there first thing. Will surely be late on Friday May 19th, though. Maybe I can pay someone to pick things up for me if they're still around on Sunday?

    Couldn't agree more VR. It means an extra early arrival and somewhere to stash the goods.

    IIRC, the last Asprey sample ale also featured the horribly slow check-out with each item number being labouriously written down by hand in some sort of ledger. Combine that with the hordes of mid-town tourists and there maybe some seriously cranky shoppers.

    I'd completely blocked that out. I spent more time on the check out line than shopping.[​IMG]

    Where did you hear this news from? I certainly hope they don't fold their NY operation.

    Sciens, Plainfield (two hedge funds) and management bought the Company in an LBO transaction in March 2006. Garrard was concurrently sold to Yucaipa (PE shop)

    So, any predictions on the Asprey sale? Do they still carry Edward Green? I imagine they are just fire saling EVERYTHING in the store -- it's closing down soon, isn't it?

    Thanks for the update. It seems Asprey will be leaving Trump Tower after all but it's unclear whether they'll fold NY operation or relocate to a smaller and less expensive location.

    This Asprey sale may be an activity for The Apprentice candidates. Please be on the lookout for the comb-forward.

    Well, I would certainly fire whoever set up their check out system!

    Can someone fill me on what kind of stuff Asprey will be selling and what kind of prices to expect? The usual business attire I'm guessing?
