If you make it to the Asprey sale on Sunday, can you report what's on sales and what price? I can't make it on Sunday I want to see if it worth a trip the next day.
See their website. Â Google is your friend.
Yeah, I mispelled "Rothmann's" while googling, so i didnt get the store the first time around. I also called the Scarsdale location--crap prices on almost everything (40% off).
For anyone heading to the Asprey sale, could you please provide an update? Any Edward Green shoes? I woke up this morning planning to go until I saw the snow outside...
I'll leave an update on Asprey. Any idea when it opens?
what the hell - i'll go to asprey now (hoping it's open)
will report back in a few hours
how was asprey? going tomorrow
Asprey was very disappointing.
Shoes - only sandals and some loafers (doubtful they were EG)
Shirts/Blazers/Outerwear - Nothing in Sm or M sizes
Leather goods - Nothing
Sweaters - This was the highlight. A wide variety of cashmere sweaters in all sizes.
Clothing: 75% off original ticket
Shoes: 80% off original ticket
I guess this means holiday business was good for them...
you a$$holes cost me so much money just kidding, just kidding I hate to disagree, but I thought Asprey was awesome, especially for sweaters. If you want thick cashmere sweaters, go. Of course, I went a little nuts and got shoes too. I thought the selection was fantastic, especially for one of these kind of sales which rarely have anything useful. The sweaters are really nice. Large selection, all the different sizes, great fabrics. Nice selection of leather jackets. Very large selection of women's clothing. In conclusion: Pros: the sweaters Cons: the lines. and my wallet
I was not impressed by either Asprey or Rothman's: Asprey - poor selection of shoes. Â The loafers that were available were Italian-made so clearly not EG. - sweaters were not my thing. Â I like my sweaters to be thin and slim-cut with clean lines. Â The Asprey sweaters were all bulky in bright colors - more of a focus piece than an accent piece. Â If that's your thing, you might consider it. - outerwear was spotty. Â There were some leather and tweed pieces, but not a lot of selection. Rothman's - couple tables of sweaters with moderate amounts of every size except small. Â A little more subdued tones than Asprey sweaters, but the materials were not as nice. - a small table with ugly shoes of the Cole Haan, Boss, and J&M varieties. Â Don't even think about buying those. - overcoats were 30% off and raincoats were 40% off with small selection of each. - I don't know what kind of deals, if any, they had on suits. Â I wasn't in the market for one so I didn't stop by any of the racks. - ties were 25 to 50% off. Â I don't need any more ties so I didn't check to see what kinds they had in stock. All in all, two disappointing sales. Â Now the Vestimenta sale and the Dunhill clearance this past fall -- those were sales. Â dan
I'm not surprised the Rothman's sale was a bust. I've never been that impressed with their stock.
