Some guys hear the word ‘sale’ and picture brutish bargain hunters fighting over second-rate scraps under bad fluorescent lighting. In reality, plenty of sale settings rival the best retail experiences, as in the case of this week’s Fred Perry sale. Soft lighting, records spinning, charming digs, friendly staff. Now, the discounts aren’t spectacular, sizes run small, and 27th between 10th & 11th isn’t an ideal locale, but the offerings are ample and varied… for sweaters, light jackets, pullovers, and kicks, anyway.
Fred Perry Sale – 547 W 27th St between 10th & 11th – 3rd fl – 212-736-3030 – Tues-Fri 10am-7pm, Sat-Sun 12pm-6pm – Map
