Alexander Wang Sample Sale is a Must Go

0
6 November 2012

Retail therapy is definitely well deserved after our apocalyptic hurricane Sandy week,  and the Alexander Wang sample sale is just what the doctor ordered. The sample sale VIPers were far from subdued last night, waiting in a  lively line that numbered more than 50 people, despite the extreme chill. Cash is not at option at this credit card only sale so the line moved steadily.

Overall, the sale is mostly women’s ready to wear,  heavily knit saturated, but also carries the T by Alexander Wang line for men and a rack of leather men’s outwear and bottoms ranging from $140 for bottoms to $300 for coats. The pricing is clearly noted by signage on the wall and the specialty items are marked down directly on the tags to avoid confusion.  The selections offered are appropriate for the season and are fully represented in at least one of every size ranging from women’s size 0-10 and XS-L.

Smaller, leather envelope clutches are $70-$90 depending on their sizes

The knits are heavy and the coats are to die for, with Wang’s signature zipper detail, A-symmetrical cuts and leather accents. The markdowns are up to 70% off their original pricing. If you are the type of shopper that needs to try things on, be prepared to be seen, because there are no fitting rooms.

All shoes are $200 with the exception of the specialty shoes which are $300. Smaller, leather envelope clutches are $70-$90 depending on their sizes.  Lastly, the handbags are priced by size, ranging  from $250 for the clutches to $400 for the largest purses.

The hype is not a hoax, as for women, this sample sale is a big win, but get there sooner, rather than later because the downtown streets are abuzz! The sale begins at 8AM so snuggle up in line and get your size while you can. This is not a sample sale you want to miss, but be prepared for long lines and a chilly cold weather.  In fact, it is so good you that you might want to get your goods first, then tell your friends.
