Denim brand James Jeans is currently hosting a sample sale south of Canal on Greenwich Street, and a reader emails in to say it's worth dropping by: "Great sale going on at James Jeans. The location is a bit out of the way, but definitely make an effort to get out there. It's really spacious and UNBELIEVABLY well organized (by size—24 to 32—AND by style) and the people working the sale are really sweet and helpful (one of the ladies had me model the pair I bought). There's a lot of bootleg and straight leg styles, with some wider pants available as well. Jeans on the tables are $80, sample size jeans are $50 (but they only have sizes 24 & 25), suit pants are $20. Some men's jeans available too." [RackedWire]
