Three Brands Under One Roof: Joie, Equipment, and Current/Elliot Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

For the first time in a long time, I had a good experience at a 260 sample sale. Three brands took over the Wooster Street location. The Joie, Equipment, and Current/Elliot sample sale had no lines to get in, the staff was actually nice, and the shopping experience was pleasant overall. I’m in just as much shock as you are. The space and pricing were organized by brand, so I’ll do that here as well.

Equipment:
That’s the first brand you see after you check in your things. Prices were below $100 and the merchandise was SO cute! However, I am slightly biased because I love Equipment. You can shop from a variety of tops, bottoms and PJ sets for both winter and summer. Most of the merch is from spring/summer, but you can also find some cozy winter sweaters. The Equipment section was very wrinkled, and some of the merchandise had safety pins on it.

Joie:
Joie is up next taking up the left side of the room and downstairs. Prices started at $10 for camisoles and went up to $200 for suede, leather, and fur jackets. Joie had mostly spring/summer items. You can stock up on shorts and tees. They even had a rack of one and two-piece bathing suits in this beautiful blue and white pattern. There were also a ton of denim and dresses to choose from. As for fall/winter items, you could browse through a few sweaters and dresses. Shoes were downstairs. This was very limited as they only had what was out and most of the merchandise was a size 37. There was a very small section for 39 and 40.

Current/Elliot:
The smallest section goes to Current/Elliot. However, denim and pants ruled this section. If you’re looking for jeans, go to Current/Elliot, don’t pass go, don’t collect $200. Prices ranged from $10 – $200. They also had a pretty large selection of long sleeve flannels and button downs, shorts, and long denim skirts.

Overall we gave the Joie, Equipment, and Current/Elliot sample sale an 8.5 out of 10. Although most of the merchandise was spring/summer it was all good stuff. You can also snag a few sweaters and flannels if you look. Shoes were a bit disappointing. Prices were pretty good this time around. I also didn’t leave there in a mad mood for once. We recommend you check it out to stock up on casual outfits. Happy shopping!

J Brand Sample Sale

By Melanie Capruso

If your wardrobe consists of denim on denim on denim, then the J Brand sample sale at 260 is the stop for you! The J Brand sale features racks on racks their denim pants for guys men and women. The jeans are conveniently divided by style of pant and then within the style by color. All RTW pants are $70, which is around a 70% discount off the usual selling point of $248. The sale also has J Brand samples which are stored in bins in the back of the sales floor. All sample pants are $40 and also organized by size.

The sale also has shoes and other pieces from designer Feit. All of the shoes were downstairs and there was a wide range of sizes for most of the shoes.

We rated this sale a five out of ten because while there was a good inventory, the discounts were not enough to achieve a high rank. While $70 jeans are not too outrageous, one could get J Brand jeans at closing Lord and Taylor on 5th ave for a better deal…
