Post Card Sample Sale Review 10/26
In the world of luxury brands, there are some that splash their name all over town – and all over their clothes. And then there are the brands that are more discreet, calling to mind the 30 Rock joke about an island only rich people know about. Luxury sportswear company Post Card is one of the latter brands – just think of their current sample sale as your passport to that rich people island.
Post Card is primarily a ski company and jackets, all 50% off are the main attraction here. A fitted teal short puffer ($399) accomplishes that rarest feat of keeping you warm without making you look like a marshmallow. Need something even warmer? We flipped for a red knee length coat ($599) with two layers of lining and a light blue ski jacket with a real fur collar ($599). An orange short puffer ($349) is perfectly 70s pre-apres ski. For those who want to keep as fashion forward as possible when the temperatures dip, we spotted a thoroughly lined Burberry-esque plaid trench ($499).
The warmer weather wear options are also appealing: take a shrunken pink quilted leather jacket ($649) also, for the more bargain-focused, available in navy nylon ($299). A sleek silver vest ($199) is future-sexy, while a tan leather moto ($349) is perfectly on trend, as is a fitted military-style neoprene jacket ($349), one of the few items to bear Post Card’s logo on its outside.
The rest of the sale is oddly scattershot. There’s some nice Post Card ski pants (we liked a black pair with exposed zippers, $180), a selection of Bodhi bags (go for the pebbled grey leather tote, $330), and, weirdly, a rack of orange Vera Wang for Kohl’s bags ($20). Unsurprisingly given the sale’s cold weather focus, however, there’s a decent selection of boots. Our picks: a darling pair of Plenty by Tracy Reese shearling booties ($125) and ASH grey suede knee-high wedges ($150).
