Shanghai Tang weekly deals

I've never see this before, so I thought I'd post about Shanghai Tang's weekly deals. Not a huge selection, but I love their stuff-- clothing, bags, cufflinks, napkin rings. I will say it's a bummer that it is cheaper in Asia (China mainland especially, so I've heard). But I'll take what I can.

Dunhill sample sale report

There were no crowds at the Dunhill sample sale this morning, and overall I found the selection pretty good.

There were a number of styles of cufflinks, tie clips, sunglasses, a few styles in pens, mens business/dress shirts, sweaters, hats, belts, socks, and some shoes. Everything, more or less, was 60% off, not a bad start-off point at all, and I am sure by the end of the sale, it will get better. The best thing I saw was a limited edition black lacquer box of the Sidecar Leather Chassis ballpoint or fountain pen, retail $660-865, now under $300! A beautiful, fabulous gift. Or, if the man in your life prefers gold cufflinks, you can find some there too.

To see some of the things available, expand.

Cufflinks, retail $215-450, now $86 to $270.
- Pink AD seal
- Pink pearl facet
- White pearl facet
- Blue headlamps
- Black Sidecar ball
- Purple mother-of-pearl coin (link is to white version)
- Classic button
- Blue enamel turtles
- Brick red enamel devil
and many more, including much more conservative ones.

Pens - a random smattering of Sidecar series in mostly ballpoint, fountain, and mechanical pencil: red pearlized, blue seashell lacquer, and gunmetal, with a hodge-podge of some others.
