From the Racked Inbox: "I just got back from the long trek over to the Mike & Chris sample sale empty-handed. Were there no good deals you ask? No, there were no clothes! Or sales people there - just people waiting patiently in line for nothing. Since their showroom is in LA, they had to rent this inconvenient location specifically for the sale. But, they haven't showed up yet. There's a chance someone (preferably with the clothes) will arrive, but at this point, it's anyone's guess." No one is answering at the Mike & Chris showroom, and their voice mailbox is full, so we don't have answers as to when the sale will actually begin. Tips to the Inbox, please. [Racked Inbox]
