The Shipley & Halmos sample sale opened this morning, and we popped by last night's preview to check out the goods. Besides being full of great shoes, clothes, and accessories for guys at up to 70% off, the Shipley & Halmos crew lets us know that they went through their archives, so you'll be able to purchase some one-of-a-kind samples at this sale. Sizes run extra small through extra large, so guys of all sizes should enjoy this one.
In the outerwear section, we found leather jackets for $250 and varsity jackets with leather sleeves for $250. Heavy down jackets are $200 and shearling lined shackets are $125. There are short trenches and lighter weight jackets also at $125. You can also find the hooded sweatshirt zip-ups for $65.
If you like your jackets a little dressier, the sport coats and blazer area is full of finds in sizes 36 through 44. We saw tweed blazers, wool suit jackets, and heavier sport coats for $200. Lightweight suit jackets, colorful blazers, and cotton embroidered suit jackets are going for $125. You can actually make suits at this sale with the matching pants and jackets available for either $225 or $275, depending on the cost of that jacket.
Pants are going for $65 and sizes range from 28-36. There's everything in here, from casual denim to suit trousers. We spotted dark raw jeans, embroidered chinos, and fall colored cords with plenty in each size.
Sweaters offer up everything from wool pullovers to cotton cardigans, all for $85. Button down shirts include tailored solid dress shirts and printed casual options for $65. Quirky worded sweatshirts are $65 with long sleeve tees and henleys going for $55. Summer and springs polos are $45, and short sleeve tees in plain and graphic styles are $35.
Shoes sizes range from 7-13. There are low lace-ups, loafers, and desert boots for $85. Heavier-duty boots are going for $100. In accessories, you can grab briefcases and backpacks bags for $100, belts for $45, ties for $35, scarves for $30, and socks for $10.
There aren't any fitting rooms, but there is a large mirror, so dress accordingly. They will be replenishing throughout the sale so if you can't make it until Saturday, you should be OK. See the full hours in the dealfeed below.
