The Alexander Wang sample sale dates just hit our inbox. Cue the frenzy! From August 3rd through the 7th, 97 Greene Street will be overrun with crazed shoppers looking for the insane A.Wang deals. Some examples: Dresses originally $685 will be $180, tops originally $350 will be $100, women's T by Alexander Wang dresses originally $125 will be $60, and men's T by Alexander Wang tops originally $145 will be $100. But obviously that's not all.
Last August samples started at $10, T by Alexander Wang started at $20, Alexander Wang womenswear started at $140, and the line started?probably somewhere around Midtown. It is recommended that you clear your morning schedules and make sure your alarm clocks have fresh batteries. There may not be a fox fur hammock, but these are deals, people. The sale starts at 3pm Wednesday, August 3; stay tuned for our Dealfeed post with the rest of the info.—Lauren Budorick
