Though the Vilebrequin sample sale currently taking place in Meatpacking isn't sponsored by the brand, we've just received word that the merchandise is indeed authentic. (Members from the company stopped by to check it out for themselves.) The men's and boy's swimwear at the sale is marked down up to 80% off, so if you go, you can be sure you're getting the real thing and a good discount. [RackedWire]
