Update 8/9/17: After listing his classic and chic Manhattan townhouse for $19.5 million last October, Mike Jeffries, former Abercrombie & Fitch CEO, has dropped the asking price to $16 million.
The gorgeous property was re-listed this past weekend, reports Mansion Global, through Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
Though Jeffries isn't the only big name to call 4 Sutton Square home. Beauty mogul Florence M. Lewis, more famously known as Elizabeth Arden, is also reported to have lived in the gorgeous digs at one point, according to Curbed.

Originally 11/1/16: On the east side of Manhattan, a charming enclave of 14 townhouses, called Sutton Square, are situated around a garden on the East River. One of them can now be yours for $19.5 million.
From the outside you might never guess that the vine-covered property belongs to former Abercrombie & Fitch CEO, Mike Jeffries. The luxurious inside, however, is a different story.
The neighborhood is one of fashionable history - Anne Vanderbilt and Anne Morgan (the daughter of J.P. Morgan) built townhouses there in 1920 - and the newly listed property, 4 Sutton Square, was built in 1921 for inventor Henry Sprague, and later lived in by the grandson of J.P. Morgan, according to the listing.
Though historic in nature, the townhouse is modern in aesthetic: Think floor-to-ceiling windows, polished nickel and rooms covered in mirrors. Seriously, tons of mirrors. The townhouse boasts a master bedroom with mirrored walls, a master dressing room with walls of custom designed mirrored closets, and two bedrooms with mirrored bathrooms.
The chic townhouse was renovated by architect Daniel Romualdez from 2005 to 2008, and also features hand-rubbed Venetian plaster walls, ceilings with polished nickel trim, granite floors and river views. The 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom house includes a full-floor master bedroom suite and a garden (plus access to the communal garden).
It shouldn't be surprising that Jeffries' townhouse is bold and luxurious: The former CEO is undoubtedly unafraid of making a statement. He is largely credited for developing the modern Abercrombie & Fitch image the company emulated until he left in 2014, but he made some pretty, er, bold moves along the way (you probably remember hearing news about his "we want to market to cool, good-looking people" interview and 46-page corporate jet rulebook).
To be honest, in some ways, with its dark color scheme and masculine details, the townhouse does somewhat resemble the interior of an Abercrombie & Fitch store. We can only wonder: Is it also scented with Abercrombie & Fitch cologne #41?
