The Kent & Curwen sample sale is going on through next Friday, October 9th, and the Shophound stopped by to see if it's still work checking out over the next week. The verdict? If you're in the market for ties, fall sweaters, suits, plus fancy leather outerwear and trench coats, then it's a must-shop.
The event, which the blog describes as "more like a fire sale," includes fall 2015 merchandise that was meant for the now-closed Madison Avenue store, all designed by the brand's ex-designer Simon Spurr (which could explain the crazy discounts). Once the Trump Tower doorman escorts you up the elevator, expect to find $15 ties, $60 sweaters ($90 if they're cashmere), $30 cashmere scarves, plus leather outerwear for $395, marked down from up to $2,000.
