Thursday through Saturday, 5/9-5/11, Staff USA is hosting its semiannual sample sale featuring Martin Margiela, MM6, Dsquared, and Victor & Rolf. This event is infamous for trying to unload $123 tees (at a sample sale!), but prices do drop precipitously toward the end of the event. For the most part, expect suits for $400-$600, knits for $150-$350, and footwear for $300.
One of our favorite events of the year. Thursday and Friday, 5/9-5/10, Levi’s Made & Crafted and Levi’s Vintage Clothing will be hosting a sample sale featuring deep discounts on sturdy jeans, tees, shirts, sweaters, shorts, and jackets. See how the last event went down here. Prices started at just $20 for premium denim, while tops went for $20-$75 (down from $79-$198), and jackets went for $75-$300 (down from $285-$850).
