CEGO Sample Sale – 225 W 35th St btwn 7th & 8th – 10th fl -212-620-4512 / 212-594-0344 – Wed 11am-8pm, Thurs 11am-6pm – Map

  1. I’ve been to the sale in the past and also had CEGO shirts made for me (not at the sale). The sale works like this: shirts include ones that didn’t work out for people, or were unclaimed, etc. He also has some RTW shirts that were made for better stores. In addition, he sells pocket squares, boxer shorts and even some pillowcases made from shirting fabrics.

    So these are among the things you will find. I’ve bought many pocket squares at the sale. If I wore boxers, I’d buy them too.

  2. Just been to the sale and got 2 shirts, and they do alterations! Met Carl too, really cool guy. Not a big selection but you might come away with beautifully made shirts.


  3. Just got back and the selection was meh. A lot of the custom shirts were $100, which I can get a pretty good shirt new. Didn’t know they did alterations. A lot of ties for $10 that were ok.

  4. shirts are assorted samples.
    some are misfttted custom shirts. these range from $20-60
    other samples that were made to keep sewers busy at slack times $40-60

    other samples from all over. $20-40
    “Do Not Starch” these shirts are from my non-Existent RTW line.
    some are oversize Maus & haufman shirts made in swiss cotton, that have been taken apart and put back together again in slim fits. these are $100. we plan to make more of these.

    we are not taking orders for custom shirts at this sale.
    the pillow cases are very nice!
