From a Racked reader: "Just checked out the PL 3.1 sample sale (it's at Eight Avenue by the way, not Seventh). The men's section consisted of a very small room with 2 racks, each holding a dozen or so pairs of pants, mostly blue and green, a few black, a few pairs of white jeans. I think there may have been 1 jacket. The 2 pairs of pants I tried on were mismarked the wrong size, walked away empty handed, nothing special. The women's section looked to have a much bigger selection and there was decent activity going on when I went around 12:30 this afternoon." [Racked Inbox]
