Once again, sample sale season is saving the best for last. Joining J. Crew and Madewell next week is another brand we've come to expect in June: Rag + Bone. Mizhattan reports that the contemporary label will kick off its sample sale next Wednesday, June 24th, at 410 West 16th Street—an address that's attached to the Chelsea Market building, but not accessible from inside of it.
This sale typically draws huge crowds on opening day, but not because the discounts are spectacular—last year's sale had markdowns only up to 60% off, which made items like leather and bags out of reach for most. But those trying to avoid a crush of shoppers might be safe waiting until its final days, if the amount of merchandise left at the end of February's sale is any indication.
Check out the Dealfeed below for the sale's dates and hours, and start calculating how early you'll need to get here to grab an elusive pair of Newbury booties before they're all gone.
