All hail sample sale season: Next week, Band of Outsiders will hold its first sample sale inside the brand's one-and-only North American store at 70 Wooster Street. Even better news: It'll include both regular merchandise and real, true samples.
Clothing, which includes mens and womenswear from "all seasons," will be available at up to 80% off original prices. This means women's plaid schoolboy blazers for $200 (down from $795), floral silk tops for $75 (down from $325), and, in the men's section, wool reefer coats for $250 (originally $1,195) and button-downs for between $50 and $75 (down from $235 to $395). And afterwards, there's the promise of a slice of Crack Pie at the adjacent Milk Bar window.
Thursday, May 14th to Saturday, May 16th. Thu–Fri 9am–7pm; Sat 11am–7pm.
