How awesome is this?! Beggar correspondent — and Eating Brooklyn editor-in-chief — Sam Jacobs just filed a report from Clothingline’s J. Crew Sample Sale — going down through Friday, 5/7 — with piece-by-piece illustration and analysis. Yes!
"Better than before," writes Jacobs. "More sizes, more selection. "I picked up a pair of off-white jeans in 34/30 for $50 (currently at $98 retail), a plain blue button-down collar shirt (Large) for $35, broken-in Chino Jack Purcell sneakers for $35 (10), and a pair of white bottom slip on Sperry’s for $65 (9 ½). "They had a good selection of shorts, pants (chinos, some jeans, wool trousers), & casual shirting in multiple sizes. Chambray shirts were available, and flying out the door. Tons of Jack Purcells & some Tretorns, Red Wings, Sperry, & Clark’s. Some of their own shoes too. Lots of sweatshirts, and a handful of leftover heavy sweaters from the winter sales. A few jackets (sport & casual) rounded out the sale."Mid-Sperry's and desert boots are only $65 (Pic by Tim Matta)Adidas Sambas and Converse Jack Purcell's for $35 -- 2 for $60 (Pic by Tim Matta)
