The James Jeans sample sale is going on right now, and you may want to consider stoping by if you're in the market for new denim. Inside, you'll find stacks and stacks of jeans on tables organized by size, with styles in neatly labeled piles. Basic jeans are going for $80 each, or two pairs for $150. Color options are mostly limited to shades of standard blue, though it looks as if smaller sizes (24-25) have more options.
There's also a long rack of cropped and boyfriend jeans for $75, another filled with white jeans for $80 or two for $150, and shelves of corduroy and velvet pants for $50 each or two for $80.
Boxes filled with shorts are organized by size, and they're $60 each or two for $100. Men have a small selection of jeans to choose from for $80 as well. And though the sale advertised sweaters, vests, and jackets, we only saw one tiny rack with a few of these items.
By the way, the sale was empty when we stopped by—it was almost like shopping by appointment. And a sales associate told us that they're considering a further discount on the final day, though they're not sure if that will definitely happen or how much it would be. Regardless, you can shop through 7:30pm tomorrow.—Laura Gurfein
