J. Crew Sample Sale

— Mon, 18th January 2010 —

Some of you chewed me out for not noting the last J. Crew sample sale at Clothingline. (We’d expected another lame showing, but the sale turned out to be, in the words of one reader, “actually pretty decent.”) Well, Tuesday through Saturday, 1/19-1/23, Clothingline’s at it again, and they’re promising plenty of men’s wear and footwear.

Still, as another reader insisted last time around: “I absolutely refuse to go to this sale again after going to the last 2 and leaving sooo disappointed … For a bit more cash, you will have a better experience shopping at the actual store with more options and size selections!”

Report from the field: “Unlike the ghosts of J.Crew sales past, this one is ripe with replenished footwear, Thomas Mason shirts, sweaters (mostly med), wovens (again, mostly med), pants (mostly 32 x 32), and a smattering or outerwear & sport jackets,” writes one enthused reader. “Their first sale was still their best, but in comparison with the last 5 this is a close runner up.”

Day 2 Report from the field: Kenji of ModSnob writes in: “The sale was good to me on Day 2. I racked up on two Thomas Mason shirts (2 for $90). Everyone must keep in mind that this is a SAMPLE SALE–meaning all size medium or mens 9 (shoes). However Thomas Mason had larges, XLs, and one or two smalls. Knit wear pieces (2 for $55 * I believe). Also, I found a pink gingham for less that $30. Keep in mind that all the ’09 shirting is slimmer fit. I found that ’08 was a fuller cut. Also the shoe selection is ample. Same shoes from the last Clothing Line sample sale minus the boots. Some suede drivers can be had for $60 … The tailored garments were few and far between. Sweaters of all material were the hottest items in addition to the cotton tees and polos. I may go back for the unique selection of vests. Don’t tell anyone but I also picked up a Rugby toggle front shawl collar knit that was mixed in with the J. Crew merchandise.”

  1. Anja You are so right in saying we have no idea what anoyne’s circumstances are in their life. Who am I to be judgmental. Perhaps I would be the one next person who would make a difference. I’m going to purchase and keep some extra gift cards in my purse so I can hand them to the homeless to go get themselves a hot bowl of soup or a sandwich. It’s good for both of us!
