We hopped a train to Dumbo this morning to check out the Brooklyn Industries sample sale. Merchandise for men and women is marked down up 70% off, and nothing is over $40. Whether you're gearing up for the fall, want to update your work wardrobe, or just need some new gym tees, you can definitely do it here without breaking the bank.
The prices are the same for both sexes, with accessories and tees going for $10. Shirts, sweaters, hoodies, and pants are all only $20. Ladies, skirts and dresses are $20. Bags are going for $30, and jackets and blazers top off the price list at $40. There's also a bin near the cashwrap that has $5 bags as well.
When you walk in, head to the back of the store to find all the deals. Guys, you're stuff is on the right. Ladies, on the left. There's a lot of stuff and a majority of it is one-of-a-kind samples. There are sizes for everyone and deals galore.
Guys can score some cool button ups and sweaters, as well as fun graphic hoodies, if that's you're thing. There's a selection of heavy and lightweight outerwear, which we'd say is the best bet for your money. Pants and denim offer a range of styles and sizes, and there's a rack of cool shorts, including both casual to work appropriate options.
In the bags area, you'll find some great messenger and backpacks styles, but you'll have to dig through some purses to find them.
There are so a lot of cute dresses and skirts for the ladies, so it's worth combing through the racks to find them. Additionally, there are also a lot of transitional pieces that will bring you through to fall. Bags includie hobos and totes, and there's a bin of accessories with hats and belts. And don't forget to check out the women's $10 tee bins.
The store will be restocking through the sale, except for the bags. The sale runs until 9pm tonight and wraps up tomorrow. See the dealfeed below for more info.—Mickey Sery
