Burkman Bros., Saturdays NYC Sale

— Wed, 15th June 2011 —

This event is as odd as it is potentially insane. Thursday through next Monday, 6/16-6/20, the New York office of ad agency Wieden + Kennedy is hosting some sort of “Shop” event featuring various discounts on Burkman Bros., Saturdays NYC, Loomstate, Nicholas K, Rogan, Siki Im, Steven Alan, … “All Burkman Bros. items will be NEW pieces not available at any other retail locations!” a rep tells us. Expect limited-edition ikat shorts for $80; silk shorts for $100; tank tops for $40; and plaid shirts for $50. “Also signature Burkman Bros bracelets, originally worn by Kanye West at Coachella, will be avaialble in new, bright colors and styles!” Joy! Oh, and there’s a VIP event tonight, 6/15, from 7pm-9pm. Can you crash it? You tell us.

Shop Event – Wieden + Kennedy – 150 Varick St btw Vandam & Spring, 6th Fl -Thur-Fri 5pm-9pm, Sat-Sun 1pm-7pm, Mon 5pm-9pm – Map

  1. Got an email about this last week. Looks quite odd. There is an RSVP thing that you need to either call or link. Considering that it is an ad agency setting, you would most likely need to checked off at the lobby of the building.

    The PR shop has the phone and email you can contact to get in:


  2. Apparently the namelist was due, can anyone PLEASE bring me as a +1? I’ll pay you with a great bj jkjkjk.

  3. In case anyone was wondering, no one was checking names in at the door. Also, this felt less like a sample sale and more like a trade show. Every brand had a representative or salesperson and not much was really at sample sale prices. Some shirts were still going for $150. Saw a lot of people leave empty handed.
