If you're planning to brave the Thom Browne sample sale today, get used to the view above, because that's what you're going to be staring at for quite a while. Our spy has been there for an hour and a half and reports that he's finally getting close to the entrance.
Meanwhile, in the comments section of an earlier post, a reader estimates that they're letting in something like one person for every four minutes. "There was also probably 60 behind me when I left," he writes, "meaning a wait of nearly 4 hours if they kept the current pace." (It's like a math question on the Fashion SAT! A very basic math question.)
We hear dress shirts are $40, but according to rumors leaking out from inside the sale, they're out of size 3s, with only very large and very small sizes left.
Update: Ladies and gentlemen (mainly gentlemen), we have a price list. Repeat: We have a price list.
Outerwear from $200 and up, wool topcoats from $400
Six ties for $100
Knits from $75 to $250
Lots of cardigans
