If spring cleaning has you tossing staple wardrobe items with the slightest of stains or snags, consider hitting up James Perse's next NYC sample sale beginning next Tuesday, March 22nd in Soho.
Just like at previous sales, you can expect up to 75% off retail prices on tee shirts, tank tops, henleys, and button-downs in a rainbow of colors for both men and women, as well as a selection of pants, sweaters, coats, activewear, and the occasional shoe. The sale announcement also mentions furnishings, but we have yet to see the items like surfboards appear at these events.
As prices at this sale have slowly been creeping upward over the past few years, readers have pointed out to us that you can find a similar selection of its tee shirts and buttons downs at places like Nordstrom Rack; we found a very small selection of recognizable basics at the new Saks Off Fifth, too. However, its periodic sample sales are still your best bet for finding a wide range of its discount merchandise in your size.
It's taking place at 260 Sample Sale's newest sale venue on Greene Street; for more on the location and when you can stop by, check out the Dealfeed below.
