If you were let down this week by the small selection of menswear at the Jil Sander sample sale, then perhaps Simon Spurr can be your consolation. Sugar Rock Catwalk ventured over to the sale currently happening on Eleventh Avenue, and in a nutshell, reported that the sale is amazing.
From their review, we've learned that the space is "massive," there are several fitting rooms plus "one giant mirror," and it's all very organized. Also good to know: "Whether you're in the market for denim, blazers, outerwear, or shirts, this sale has you covered."
The denim is all running pretty cheap, with Simon Spurr jeans priced at $125 and Spurr denim at an even better $75. Best of all, there are plenty of sizes to choose from, and plenty of jeans to be had in both traditional denim colors and brighter shades, like red and a bold blue.
Over in the shirting section, Simon Spurr button downs are $125 and Spurr button downs are $80, and they're both displayed on the racks as well as in bins along the window ledge. In addition to those, there are also sample items that never made it into production, and polos for $95.
If you're looking to bulk up for fall, head to the outerwear area, where the offerings are "plentiful." As far as accessories go, there's one rack of ties and one rack of bags, hats, shoes, and sunglasses. However, pricing here isn't as straightforward. Sugar Rock Catwalk explains, "They were in the process of making copies to be distributed/put up so hopefully it will be easier to gauge pricepoints soon. As a general rule, I would say that prices are running around 70% off of retail." Four hours, the address, and all that jazz, head here.
