The Calvin Klein sample sale began yesterday at Soiffer Haskin, and Mizhattan stopped by to survey the scene. She reports that women's merchandise makes up about 40% of the sale, and includes knitwear, outerwear, and ready-to-wear in extensive size runs priced at 75% off. A few highlights? A black double-breasted jacket for $275 (was $1,150) and a blush knee-length wool coat for $748.75 (was $2,995).
She adds that men's and women's bags—briefcases, leather satchels, hobos, shoulder bags, and large totes—are all 60% off. However, the biggest draw of the sale appears to be the menswear. She writes: "Across from [the] dress shirts were countless racks of 75% off suits, down coats, and wool overcoats. Almost all the suits were of darker shade and perfect as gentlemen's office attire."
