Here’s letting you in on one the best discount shopping experiences in NYC. Gentleman’s Resale is where Upper East Side men take their Zenga suits after gaining a few pounds, and their Hermès ties after a wear or two. The result is a nice selection of conservative high-end menswear, all of which looks and feels virtually brand new. While a little out of the way on 81st between 1st & 2nd, the store is like a miniature version of Barneys Warehouse Sale open year round. Also, as a bonus, the experienced staff don’t work on commission, so you can always expect honest feedback.
