Does this look like the kind of man who opens an outlet store?  No.  But if Chanel has one, why not?

Tom Ford‘s first—and probably only—outlet store will open this summer at Woodbury Commons in New York.  (The Commons will also welcome Reed Krakoff.)

Of course, Ford’s built his whole brand around exclusivity, so we kind of imagined he’d be the type of person who’d rather burn whatever doesn’t sell, instead of spot the wrong kind of woman walking around in last year’s croc skirt at 80% off.  Never have we been more thrilled to be wrong!  Woodbury‘s home to some of the best outlets—Balenciaga, Prada, La Perla, YSL, Moncler, Valentino—all of which offer seriously marked down inventory of past collections like Balenciaga florals and Prada lace.  Ford‘s only produced three season’s worth of clothing one of which won’t even hit stores until after the outlet’s July 15th opening date, which means there won’t be too much to stock.  We’ll go ahead and book that zip car anyway.
