Tuesday and Wednesday, 8/4-8/5 (along with a private event, tonight, 8/3, which you might or might not be able to waltz right into), the Metropolitan Pavilion is hosting an Alexander McQueen sample sale featuring up to 80% off S/S ’09 — and previous seasons — ready-to-wear, shoes, and accessories. Despite the economy and the month, we’re betting that McQueen at 80% off will draw crowds.
Report from the field: “Most of the menswear is completely wearable including some great suits and blazers in ‘normal’ navys and grays. The shoes were an excellent deal as well and were actually kind of cool — Picked up a pair for $170 (down from $815). The checkout line is a complete and utter disaster. If you go down there, plan to wait in the checkout line for 45 minutes.”
Alexander McQueen sample sale – Metropolitan Pavilion, 123 W 18th St between 6th & 7th – Mon ???, Tue 9am-7pm, Wed 9am-6pm – Map
