As with all SA sales, you are presented with a great selection of wall-to-wall shirting, ranging from plain to plaid to crazier (yet classy) prints courtesy of Liberty of London (each for $68) …
Although some of the outwear is more fit for a East Coast winter, the stock is diverse enough that you’ll definitely find something to fit every lifestyle – like a heavy flannel, down-corduroy vest, blazer, or rain slicker ($125). A large selection of SA tees and polo shirts are also available, if you’re still suffering the effects of that recent, totally random heat wave. Grab some casual chinos for $85 to complete any outfit. Speaking of casual, the sale is also offering simple-yet-essential items like hoodies and zip-ups ($55). Dress it up with a tie or bow-tie ($25) and show everyone your sophisticated side. Get your winter accessories on with a pair of leather gloves ($55) and a scarf ($49). The hat selection is also in full effect – grab a Harris Tweed Walker hat ($29), bucket hat, or — my personal favorite — Steven Alan’s Stormy Kromer Cap ($15), which comes in two types of plaid and — everybody’s favorite material — chambray.
Other than Steven Alan brand, the sale is home to other labels, including a large selection from Free City (tees, pull over hoodies, raglans and sweatpants are $50; zip hoodies are $80), while Alternative Apparel ($9 a tee; 5 for $30; 10 for $50) makes an appearance as well, along with small quantities of other favorites like Wings + Horns tees ($40) tees. Relwen also offers a variety of goods like button-downs ($58) and jackets ($89).
The wall near the entrance is literally made out of Generic Surplus shoes – $30 each or $50 for two pairs. Some other fan favorites sneaked into the sale as well – a decent selection of N.D.C. Made by Hand Athilia boat shoes are available for $155; a few styles of Duckie Brown for Florsheim are $145; as are the three pairs of Rachel Comey shoes on the floor.
