Sample Sale Report: Simon Spurr/Spurr

Stopped by at the Simon Spurr/Spurr sample sale at lunch today. Even though the space is pretty small - there's plenty of space to move around and take your time. The staff are all super friendly and helpful and best of all there's no lineup! The sale is a bit on the pricier side but if you're a fan of the two lines - it's worth it! Simon Spurr has some of the best ready to wear pieces for men out there so I always look forward to this sale! There's one big mirror set up for you to look at and one corner of the room is partitioned off for you to try things on. It's small but it works.
The highlight of the sale is definitely the denim section - everything was going for $75 a pair - SPURR or Simon Spurr Label. Personally, these jeans have become a staple in my wardrobe so I snapped up a couple pairs in the pipe fit. In terms of sizing, there's a big range with lots of size 32. Popular sizes like 33 are still available but quickly diminishing. There was also a lonely box of denim/cords that was just $25.
Pricing was a bit higher than past sales but still 50-80% off what you would pay for at retail. The sale is heavy on outerwear with some amazing pea coats going for $700 (retails for $1,495) and army green parkas for $650. There were also some pieces from this past Spring collection that were a steal at just $50-$75 a piece. Sizing for the jackets runs the gamut but there were definitely more mediums available than any other size.
The above black heavy cotton coat is going for $350 (retails for $995) - I cringed a little when I saw this since I just bought this a couple weeks ago. On sale of course - but definitely nowhere near that price. I still love this jacket though...
Dress shirts from the SPURR line were $90 while button ups from the Simon Spurr label were $180. Last sale these were priced at $75 and $125 respectively and ran out uber quickly - there's definitely more styles and sizes available this time around. Leather pieces from the SPURR label hovered around $400 while leathers from the collection line were roughly $1,500.
Blazers range from $400-$800 and are mostly in size 38-40 - anything smaller or larger is few and far between. SPURR tuxedos were going for $800 and there were only a couple in size 40. Knitwear ranged from $125-$300 and again there was a range of sizing. Spurr T's were $30 and Simon Spurr V-neck T's were $90.

Although 11th Avenue seems a bit out of the way - it's definitely worth it if you're a fan of the two lines. Last sale, prices dropped by the end (I ended up scoring 2 pairs of jeans, a polo, and T for around $130) so hopefully the same holds true this time around.
