For those of us procrastinators, it can be quite stressful figuring out what gifts to give. This year, why not give dear old dad something different – does he really need another animal print Hermes tie? We searched Madison Avenue boutiques and found some special shops where you can purchase your Father’s day gift on sale, naturally! We do suggest checking on their sales item return policy - just in case
Manrico Cashmere has marked down the majority of their menswear. Lightweight cashmere normally ranges from $540 to $700 is marked down anywhere from 30% to 50%. They also had some really nice cashmere peacoats. Even at 50% off a retail price of $3800 may still be expensive for a gift for dad.
The Davide Cenci boutique is known for their fine tailoring and collared shirts normally priced from $240 to $270. They are now 40% off. If you are pooling gift resources with your siblings, they have a great selection of unconstructed sports jackets as well racks of Loro Piana outerwear starting around $1400, included in the 40% markdown.
Giorgio’s of Palm Beach
A bit further downtown is the menswear staple Giorgio’s of Palm Beach. Don’t let the name fool you – they have plenty of custom Italian-made Manhattan-appropriate men’s couture. While no sales prices are posted they are more than willing to work within your budget. Through a bit of yapping, a cashmere sweater normally priced $795 was reduced to $495. Everyone seemed very willing to work on prices throughout the store, so why not stop by and try your luck?
The Eredi Pisano boutique is encouraging last minute father’s day shopping with a weekend sale. Their collared shirts normally priced from $195 to $260 are 30% off. In addition, their seemingly endless selection of ties are marked down 40% off an origional price of $110 to $150. You will definitely be able to find a tie to suit your dad here, and at these prices you can get two for the price of one.
If you are looking for nice casual menswear at a more wallet-friendly price, we suggest popping over to Hickey Freeman. Nearly everything in the store is currently marked down 30%, and they have a large selection of items marked down 75% as well.
