Snoozers Are Losers: Report From the Front Joseph Abboud

Where are all the men in NY? Well, on Sunday morning, the "I can handle a tech IPO and I've been up since 5 a.m." dressed-and-ready-for-anything crowd was at Joseph Abboud scouring for tailored blazers (even velvet) reduced from $745 to $174, or suits for $350. Chances are that if you're a size 36 or 38, or one of the larger sizes, you may have slimmer pickings by today.

Attentive staff, patient shoppers -- why can't women's sample sales be a little less bridesmaids' trip to Vegas? Head to 317 West 33rd St. for the sale, which runs through Thursday, when markdowns may ensue. However, if you are determined to add a new luxe tux or suit to your wardrobe, it's probably best not to wait. No shirts or accessories at this sale.
