Plush, soft, luxurious cashmere is in abundance at the Brunello Cucinelli fall sale.  If you love high quality cashmere, this is the sale to find them. The garments here are still going to cost you a pretty penny… even after the 60 percent off the retail price.  But for the quality, it’s worth it.  After looking at these garments, I just couldn’t waste my time at the J.Crew sample sale where the cashmere sweaters just don’t compare.


I stopped in earlier this week to find plenty of racks of not only cashmere sweaters, dresses, and bottoms but also button-down shirts, wool pants, skirts as well as accessories – handbags, belts and shoes.  The footwear were pretty much picked over and for women there were only size 37 and 40 available (on sale for $240 to $520).  On the one side of the room were the women’s garments (which were plentiful) and on the other were the men’s merchandise.  The plush cashmere sweaters ranged in price from $400 to $760 (were $1,000 to $1,900). The wool sweaters and tops were a bit less, some going for under $300.  The bottoms (pants and skirts) were a deal at $120.  Sale ends on Friday.

Where/When:  595 Madison Ave (b/w 57th & 58th Sts).  7th Floor.  Thru Friday November 12 (9-5p).
