Margiela, Dsquared, Victor & Rolf Sale

— Thu, 10th November 2011 —

Through Saturday, 11/12, Diesel HQ is hosting its semiannual sample sale featuring Martin Margiela, Dsquared, and Victor & Rolf. Yes, this is the sale with the $123 cotton t-shirts. Also expect to find suits for $400-$600, knits for $150-$350, and footwear for $300. Prices are usually cut in half toward the end of the sale. Here’s what these events typically look like.

Staff USA Sample Sale – Diesel HQ – 220 W 19th St between 7th & 8th – 12 fl – Thurs 1m-7pm, Fri 10am-7pm, Sat 12pm-5pm – 646-613-8456 – Map

  1. prices were quite high as usual per this sale. blazers were $500+, coats $6-800, shirts $200+; each item had individual prices. not a whole lot of shoes when i got there 3hrs after opening; 1 pair of MMM chelsea boots that was quite nice priced at $350. most of the items seemed like real samples, and only one of each on the racks; but the finish and quality were high, on par with what you’d find at a retail setting. pretty much a sea of size 48, with a few 50’s sprinkled in. quite a lot of D Squared suits too, priced about $700ish iirc. i found a lot of quirky, but wearable pieces. the sale was dominated by several racks of D Squared, a few more of MMM, and just 1 of V&R. not bad if you’re into these labels or looking for something edgier than Gant, but be prepared for sticker shock.

  2. Went by at 3pm on Friday, everything was 50% off of the marketed price (which were about 50% to begin with). MMM in size mediums (48) only, 2 pairs of size 43 shoes left. Some totally wearable blazers/sweaters left and a ton of pants/jeans- go if you are a medium! Got a vest and shirt for $150 total, not bad. Didn’t really look at the other designers.
