CHELSEA—A Racked correspondent who was at the 7 for All Mankind sale preview last night and stopped back again this afternoon tells us that after a day of relatively high shopper traffic, the denim is still plentiful. Salespeople estimate that they've already sold 1500 pairs of jeans and expect to hit 2000 by the end of the day (they really love statistics over there.) Anecdotal evidence confirms that pretty much everyone who walks in winds up coming out with a shopping bag. [RackedWire; Previously]
EVERYWHERE—It's a good time era for men's dress shirts. Gant just debuted a line of six button-downs inspired by their archives, Brooks Brothers introduced a new extra slim fit, and Gitman Vintage is about to launch a collaboration with Opening Ceremony. But this piece of menswear news particularly caught our eye: "Even Prada is getting buttoned up, announcing that it will roll out a made-to-measure shirt service this month at four stores in New York and California. The company says customers can choose from 'innumerable combinations of fabrics, including retro prints dating back to 2001 collections. Prices range from $445 to $1845, depending on the fabric."
