Hart Schaffner Marx and Hickey Freeman sample sale in Chicago — It’s on the corner of State and Randolph, north of the Macy’s building. Tons of shirts, suits, sportcoats, trousers and neckties. I found out about it last night from drjgloveesq, who told me at the meetup.
Sorry I don’t have more photos (I didn’t have my phone with me), but they had quite a lot of stuff. Here’s what I can kinda-sorta remember off the top of my head:
- Trousers: HSM, $40; HF, $70
- Suits: HSM, ~$350?; HF, ~$400?
- Sportcoats (they had unconstructed ones and regular ones): $50-150
- Belts: $20
- Ties: HSM (including skinny Italian silk knits), $20; HF, $27
- Chinos: ~$30? (maybe less)
I picked up those trousers above at what I’d call a steal price of $40 each. They grey ones are 100% worsted wool and the blue pair is a silk/linen/wool blend. The trousers for HSM will definitely need to be tapered and taken in, but I do that with all my trousers anyway.
I tried on some of the suits. HSM’s cut is rather large, but HF’s cut seemed more slimming and probably what most people would want. Quite a lot of pinstripes, but if you’re looking for a glen plaid check, you can definitely find those spread about.
Worth checking out if you’re in the area. The sale runs until Tuesday, June 28.
