The morning rush has finally died down at the Thom Browne sample sale, but more details keep trickling in. "This is a true sample sale for the most part," writes a tipster. "Dudes who wear size 1/small shirts should get over there. Also if you wear 11 shoes and have unconventional footwear tastes." Another reader stresses the unconventional factor: "Maybe caution the average man this sale isn't for him? Not a traditional men's suit or blazer by ANY means. Ties are rarely traditional, ps. They're mainly cut straight across." Still, tons of people are walking out with bags. And even though this is primarily a menswear sale, we hear the girl/guy ratio is roughly 60/40.
