About nine months ago, Built by Wendy converted its Williamsburg boutique into a full-time outlet stocked with past-season men's and women's merchandise.. Now the outlet is closing, which means it's time for a blowout sale. From Thursday, January 26 through Sunday, January 29, the brand will be cutting prices in half. Since everything's already marked at 60% off, that translates to some great deals. A metallic striped button-down with a Peter Pan collar, for example, will cost just $20, down from $166. And a wool felt hunting jacket will be $81, down from $371.
While the outlet's final day will be January 29, the flagship store on Centre Market Place in Manhattan will remain open. That only carries current season merch, though, so this is your last chance to buy older pieces from the quirky little label, which—believe it or not—just turned twenty this year.
