Amsterdam-based brand Scotch & Soda kicks off its biannual sample sale this morning over at 260 Fifth Avenue. Scotch & Soda is a brand that truly makes everything one would need to get dressed in the morning, right down to the underwear (a lacey bra and panty set at the sale is just $15).
Other categories available include tanks for $15, jeans for $50, and blazers for $100. Compared to last spring's sale, there is way more merchandise and the prices for clothing start at $15, as opposed to last sale's $20.
On top of that, there are things for every season, so if you haven't yet come to terms with the change in the weather, check the hefty rack of airy summer dresses. For those looking straight into the fall and winter months, there are tons of jackets, blazers, and heavy coats for a $100 a pop.
Jeans and trousers are $50, beautifully embroidered vests are $75, and jewelry is $10. Leather is $150, but good luck finding any. There was an amazing leather moto at yesterday's preview, but that got snatched up in no time. Pay careful attention to the mass amount of embroidered jackets, as each one is different from the next.
Make sure to hit up the accessories table, filled with everything from small pouches for $30 to larger bags for $45, plus earrings for $10 and belts for $20. As per the last sale, there are a lot of samples, and the majority of clothing is standard sample size 2/4. We were told that there was some stock mixed in as well, but not too much.
The selection for the guys is equally awesome, with just as many coats and accessories as the women's section has to offer. An added perk: there's a fitting room for men. Prices here are the same as the women's merchandise (there's a full price list in the gallery above for quick reference).
Other things to note: as the selection thins out: more apparel will be added, but no word on further markdowns yet. The sale runs until Sunday afternoon. See below for more details.—Claudia Saide
