Odin is one of New York's finest men's shops, hands down. In a city like New York that is crawling with fabulous shopping destinations, Odin strikes the perfect balance of mature duds with an unpretentious nonchalance. If you want your Prada, Dolce or Gucci head uptown to Barneys, but if you want smaller labels with a bit of a cooler reputation that are definitely interesting but not flamboyant, Odin's your type of store (oh, you'll also need a little money to burn).
Well, New York laddies are in luck -- this week and weekend, the store is having a blow-out sale with prices slashed by 60% to 90%. While the store carries T by Alexander Wang, Richard Chai, Band of Outsiders and ThomBrowne the shopping gods over at Racked (particularly menswear guru Yale Breslin) took a sneak peek and is reporting back his findings. Here's a quick rundown of what he saw:
Number: Lab long-sleeve t-shirts and henleys: $15
Nice Collective pants: $45 (from $325)
Rag & Bone Denim: $69 (usually $195)
Shipley & Halmos pants: $55 (from $220)
Burkman Bros. shorts: $45
Duckie Brown shorts: $55 (from $220)
Florsheim by Duckie Brown wingtip brogues: $169 (from $295)
YMC desert boot: $69 (from $329)
Engineered Garments button-down: $79 (from $195)
Burkman Bros. tops $59 (from $165)
Our Legacy flannel button-down $89
That's a pretty major line-up at some pretty ridiculous prices. But as we all know, the early bird catches the worm -- and fashion is no exception. While the sale runs through Sunday, we'd suggest trying to get there before the week is out.
And here are all the logistical details to help you get your shop on:
Location: 159 First Ave between 10th and 9th Sts (212-475-0666)
Hours: Wednesday through Friday 4/8 1pm-8pm; Saturday 4/9 12pm-8pm and Sunday 4/10 1pm-7pm. Ends this Sunday.
Happy shopping and good luck.
