For strictly shopping purposes — not philanthropic — it’s probably best that you didn’t drop $100 on last night’s “Fashion For Action” VIP event. Too crowded, really, and the stock wasn’t worth writing home about. Still, one happy reader wrote: “Walked away with a past season Brooks Brothers Black Fleece (Thom Browne line) khaki trench for $150 (down from $1600) and some nice Gitman Bros. vintage shirts for $35. Good times.” From Brooks Brothers suits to Opening Ceremony peacoats, here‘s some of what we found. Worth a visit this weekend, we’d say.
