Want Agency Sample Sale

— Thu, 15th November 2012 —

Aren’t you lucky to live in NYC? Friday through Sunday, 11/16-11/18, Want Agency is hosting its seasonal sample sale featuring up to 75% off Maison Kitsuné (pictured), Want Les Essentiels De La Vie, Nudie Jeans, Arc’teryx Veilance, The White Briefs, Swims, …

Anecdote for the uninitiated: We hit the Levi’s Made & Crafted / Vintage Clothing sample sale on Wednesday, a day before the event was scheduled to begin. While leisurely shopping the most amazing deals on the finest denim, a helpful host mentioned that some Beggars had dropped by earlier in the day, and had each made a killing. What’s more, the guy couldn’t have been happier about it — “Eight big sales!” he said, adding that he was under considerable pressure to make room for Spring ’13. Mind you, there was never any official pre-sale, and our host could just as easily have told those early shoppers (and us) to f*ck off. The point here is that successful sale shopping requires a little risk taking, and you can’t always follow the official line. Oh, and as helpful as they can be, you can’t rely on a post’s comments, either. As you can see here, not a one of those gumptious, trigger-happy shoppers took the time to mention their respective killings.

Want Agency Showroom Sale – 70 Wooster St btw Broome & Spring – Fri 11am-8pm, Sat-Sun 12pm-6pm – Map

  1. Lots and lots of Acne and Nudie denim, fair amount of Acne/Nudie shirts in plaids, etc.. A couple decent racks of Arc’teryx. A couple tables of ‘Want’ bags and other accessories. The Maison Kitsune stuff was very nice; the pants are size 30 and shirts are M. SWIMS of many varieties, including winter boots? All said, I thought it was worth the trip if you’re a 30/M/shoe size 9ish. oh, and CASH ONLY.

  2. Arc’teryx were M I believe. They only had one or two of about 3-4 .

    Looked like most Acne pants/denim were $50. Didn’t look too closely at Nudie.

    Maison Kitsune had a few slim 40R suits for between $685-$800. Button downs were $150. Awesome size 30 denim were $140 but only a few pairs.

  3. Just stopped by. Here’s what I remember:

    Best deals were on Nudie jeans ($50-$75) and Nudie shirts ($50). Some dry denim. Mostly Slim Jim but some other fits also. Arctyrex pants – $125. Swims boots/shoes $50-$100

    Most stuff i liked was expesive: Maison Kitsune sweaters $270. WLE bags between $500 and $700.


  4. want lest essentiels bags were way overpriced. Wait for Barneys sale season and you can cop for cheaper.


  5. Any idea if leather padfolio/notepad items are available in black? Thank you in advance.
