The past few weeks have been overwhelming with sample sales. Many of them have featured brands we look out for each season. It got us thinking about the many men in NY who still don’t know that sample sales exist or have the wrong impressions. So we decided to change a life and invited one of our stylish friends, Alex Hooks, to a day of sample sale shopping. We made stops at the Peregrine Showroom, Paul Smith, The Kooples and Krammer & Stoudt sales, chronicling the day and his reactions. After seeing that it is possible to find luxury clothing at 70% off retail, this may have started a problem.
Thursday through Saturday, 11/16-11/18, The News Showroom is back with their fall sample sale. Shoppers should expect low prices on menswear, shoes, and accessories from top brands such as Tim Coppens, Common Projects, Destine, Aprix, Malibu Sandals, and more.
