Diesel Sample Sale Review

 

Back at 260 Fifth Ave for another sample sale…. it’s a good one! Diesel is a brand most know for their denim and cool graphic tees and more. With stores all over the states, this is a company that will give you good quality but at a price. This is where the sample sale comes in! Usually, their clothes range from anywhere in the $50s-$250s so for most they might not be the most practical brand but the sample sale does alleviate most of the price points

 

As I browsed through the T-shirts and pants , they had a great selection of menswear. This includes graphic tees, plain tees and regular denim: a staple in anyone’s closet. They also had items like Winter Jackets, Shoes and underwear, all for an arguably great price point. I’ll post the prices below so you can get a feel of the range:

As you can see, most things are pretty reasonable and doable, if you want to take the plunge that’d be up to you. I wasn’t much of a diesel fan before I hit the sample sale up but there are a lot of nice things they’ve had on display. I looked in both the women’s and men’s sections of the sale and was pleasantly surprised with my findings in both.

 

I would say go check it out before it closes! Sunday would be the last day to see the full selection of stuff they have to sell. 260 Fifth Ave is a popular spot for a lot of sample sales so they change frequently. Make sure to get ahead of the curve and make sure you sign up with their emailing list , even if you can’t make it to the Diesel sale. It’s always nice to know when a sample sale is, more for less 🤑

Pratesi Sample Sale Review

Pratesi is an Italian luxury linen retailer, with sets selling for upwards of $1,000. Their sample sale, taking place at 317 W 33rd St, is selling old stock– including sheet sets of all sizes, shams, towels, and more– at discounted prices

A disclaimer right off the bat: given the steep prices the pieces retail for, even after they’re discounted they still number in the hundreds of dollar for sets. While some things, such as small mats and hand towels, run cheaper at around $30, expect to find most products selling for at least $390. While that’s a little steep for me, personally, it’s definitely still better than $1,000– so if you’ve got a craving for luxury linens, be sure to check it out.

The sale has a very short run, and ends today; the showroom is enormous, so there’s still plenty of stock to browse through.

What: Pratesi Sample Sale

When: Today, 9 am to 5 pm

Where: 317 West 33rd St

Sleepy Jones Sample Sale

 

 

 

 

Sleepy Jones is a luxury Pajama brand based in NYC. These offer pajamas for Men, Women and children so finding something for everyone in your family wouldn’t be a problem! The sample sale is location on 260 Fifth Ave, which is known as the Flatiron District. Once inside, I was greeted and a employee pointed me to the area where the clothes were sold. I don’t really wear pajamas , I usually just wear sweats and a hoodie but their selection was fantastic. They had an abundance of different pajama styles, great for yourself or anyone else you are looking for. Since I do wear sweats and shorts to bed most of the time, I was surprised to see a good amount stacked up in both the men’s and women’s sections. $20 dollars for the pants and sweats are a really good deal, especially since the brands retail can range from $150-350 dollars. Maybe I’ve decidedly become a pajama person?

 

 

The prices between the sections range from $10 – $70 dollars which is a bargain considering pajamas (depending on the store) usually start at $25-$35 dollars. I didn’t pick up anything yet but I do plan on going back and checking out the shorts and pants they had. I would say give it a try and go into their sale, literally nothing to loose.
