It's a strange time of year to stock up on cozy sweaters, but that isn't deterring the crowd at the White + Warren sale, which opened in midtown today at 1pm. Sample Sally reports cashmere samples for $35, non-cashmere samples for $25, and an crush of people. "It was so crowded I barely could move," she writes—so crowded, in fact, that she was stuck among the samples in the back room for almost half an hour. Her persistence paid off, though: She found five sweaters to buy while patiently waiting out a claustrophobic's nightmare.
Out in the front room, stock prices are also pretty good. Cotton tees are $20, cashmere sweaters are $85, cashmere outerwear is $100, and cashmere throws are $125. If you don't mind crowds, get over there now; stock is already running out.
