A Rare Brooks Brothers Warehouse Sale Kicks The Sample Sale Schedule Back Into Gear With Proenza Schouler, Ghurka, Saturdays NYC & More
it's been a relatively quiet few months on the Sample Sale front, but it's about time for that to change as retailers are closing in on cancellation dates for Spring deliveries, and designers are getting ready to unload overstock and empty out their warehouses. One such warehouse is that bastion of classicism, BROOKS BROTHERS, who launched a three day shoe and accessory warehouse today just around the corner from its Midtown flagship. While the venerated retailer's elevated fare may still bee too stodgy for the fashion-y crown, it's shoe offerings have always had fans across the boars, and with most of the offerings at this sale priced at 80% off the original retail price, this will be a blowout for as long as the stock lasts. A visit this morning showed that selection may vary depending on size, so if you are a very popular size (sorry 9Ds) there may not be as many styles available as you would hope. Bog and tiny-footed folk may fare better, and the makers available include Red Wing, Allen Edmonds, the exclusive English label Peal & Co., and shoe connoisseur favorite Edward Green, whose pricey label the retailer appears to be dropping.
If shoes aren't your bag, then there are plenty of other bargains to be found like chunky knitted cashmere mufflers for under $50, hats from Stetson and Locke & Co. and various leathergoods from wallets to formal briefcases. While there is a selection of women's merchandise, the vast majority of the offerings are for men. You will immediately know if this is a sale you can't miss, and you have until Thursday to shop.
Also along the classic line, traditional leather brand GHURKA has returned to the sale schedule this week through Thursday offering up to 75% off bags and accessories for men and women, and promising enough product to fill Soiffer Haskin's cavernous facility.
Back to clothes, British contemporary sportswear chain REISS LONDON is at 260 Fifth Avenue starting today through Sunday featuring up to 70% off its men's and women's collections.
For a little bit more rarefied tastes, the celebrated PROENZA SCHOULER will be offering up to 70% off its apparel, shoes and accessories on Wooster Street in SoHo starting on Wednesday the 21st. Look for long lines of style obsessed shoppers.
Also on Wednesday, men's casual label SATURDAYS NYC will be taking up residence in Chelsea Market offering sportswear, shoes and beach basics through Sunday .
Bridal and Evening specialist ROMONA KEVEZA has become a red carpet regular, but her bridal wear also fuels her business. Both are expected to be on offer starting on Thursday for three days on Greene Street in SoHo.
Finally, Sunday brings the return of JOHN HARDY to Soiffer Haskin for the brand's seasonal clearance featuring Sterling silver, gold and precious gemstones at up to 65% off regular prices.
