    Hey guys, Some of you John Varvatos clothing fan probably would've already known this, but there's a sample sale going on in New York right now: John Varvatos--Designer Men's Apparel Sale Leading men will find exclusive designer merchandise, including sportswear, footwear, outerwear, tailored clothing and accessories, at up to 75 percent off retail. Find luxe cashmere, leather and shearlings in nearly all sizes. Suits originally priced $1,195 to $1,495 are now $499; long-sleeve knits originally $110 to $245 are $65; sport shirts originally $198 to $245 are now $75. Dec 2-4; Tue 12pm-8pm, Wed, Thu 9am-7:30pm 260 5th Ave (Between 28th and 29th Sts) (212) 812-8000 I know it's kinda late to post this on the last day, but who knows if anyone is interested... I did get a good deal today... got a dark charcoal pinstripe suit and some dress shirts.... If anyone has time tomorrow, definitely should check it out... who knows, since it's the last day, maybe they'll lower the prices even more.... Hope this helps.. [​IMG]

    I went to this sale on the first day and the line was very long. I had to wait approximately 35-45 minutes to get in, and I was doing so on an early lunch break.

    I was not impressed with the selection. I mainly came looking for outerwear/leathers and the selection was slim to none. The nicer coats were reduced to $499, none of which were appealing to me.
    They had shoe samples in my size (11) for $99, but I was not too fond of the styles (when in doubt at a sample sale, leave it, because you are stuck with it). I found the pricing points a bit high, I can find a better selection and similar or slightly higher prices when Saks or Bloomingdales discounts the Varvatos line come January/February.

    Judging from how many men I saw on the checkout line and leaving with bags (real John Varvatos bags too - rare at a sample sale), you were not alone in scoring some good deals.
