We gave the DL1961 a 7/10. While we were annoyed that they raised prices from the previous sample sale, the brand is still one of the best luxury denim brands out there, so we’re still happy to score a pair of these jeans.
Setup: The setup in the small showroom is not the most convenient but is okay. A small room has tables in the center and along the walls. In the center are the tables for women, along the wall for men. Every ‘seat’ is a different size, and the jeans/skirts are just folded one on top of the other. So you have to sift through a number of items until you find what you want to try on.
Merchandise: Mostly jeans – the basic cuts. Some skirts, shorts, jumpsuits (very few), 4-5 tops, a box of maternity jeans and a toon of corduroy options. Also, at checkout there are leather pants/leggings.
Pricing: Ugh – this was the most annoying part. Last year and the year before, it was buy 3 pairs for $90. And now it’s 3 pairs for $120. But why though???? Clothing items were $30. We’re not thrilled but we’re not going to the streets to protest this one.
If you need a good pair of premium denim – hit this one up.
