The Staud Sample Sale is not for the Faint of Heart

staud sample sale 2019

By: Jacqueline Munro

I have never felt so unwelcome at a sample sale before; it’s as if the employees (well one in particular) forgot that I was a paying customer looking to spend money at their sale. It was disgusting the way I was heckled and embarrassed at the door regarding my ability to enter the sale. I am extremely disappointed in 260 for hiring someone like this to manage the special entry hours.

Aside from that dreadful experience though, the discounts were inconsistent. By that I mean some pieces were priced very well and others were a total rip off. They had lots of funky clothing items as well as a few bathing suits. The bags though were my favorite (and only redeeming) part of the sale. They had all of their classics including the Shirley and Moreau. Usually, if brands have their classic pieces at their sample sale, they are weird colors or sizes, but they had a great variety of neutrals and brights, and large vs. small. I was satisfied by the selection, but it was really hard to figure out the prices of the bags which was super annoying.

Overall I rated the Staud sample sale5/10. I was completely disgusted with the way I was treated upon entering the sale, and I was not happy with the organization of the showroom either; It was a complete madhouse. If they didn’t have the nice bags I would have given it a 1, but I’d like to consider myself a generous person.

They Totally Nailed it at the Rails Sample Sale

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Rails sample sale has some of the most impressive discounts I’ve seen at a 260 sale in a while. And not only are the prices on point, but the merchandise is also super cute! I’m really happy that I went to this sale especially because the clothing is in season! There’s nothing worse than going to a sample sale and buying clothing that you cant wear for three months.

There are plenty of current Rails pieces at this sample sale. Some of the shirts selling for $45 at the sale are on their website for $148 right now. There are tons of cute, soft tops, an abundance of adorable dresses, as well as some super fun jackets and bottoms. All of the items are perfect for the current weather situation. I had to restrain myself from spending every dollar on me. In addition to the plentiful amount of women’s clothing, there is a small section for men and children. The kid’s clothes are so cute that I bought my little cousin two shirts that she won’t even fit in for two years (oopsie).

Overall I’m giving this sale an 8/10. The discounts are great and the huge selection of clothing is more than satisfying. Definitely head over to this sale if you’re looking to enhance your summer wardrobe!

The Isaia and Eidos Joint Sample Sale is Filled with Luxurious Menswear

isaia sample sale 2019

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Isaia and Eidos sample sale has an abundance of stunning merchandise. While some people felt that the pricing was disappointing, I was at least satisfied with the Isaia deals. Given that the brand rarely goes on sale, I felt that the discounts were good enough! As far as Eidos goes, the deals definitely weren’t as good, but they were still alright.

I was pleasantly surprised by the Isaia merchandise that they had at this sale. I was expecting all of the suits to be bright colors or funky patterns but there was a great variety! There were lots of classic styles as well as some more modern ones. They also had a nice selection of shoes, dress shirts, sweaters, outerwear, and pants. The Eidos selection was much smaller but still nice. There were a lot of cool jackets and sweaters, but not as many nice shirts. Some of their merchandise was dirty too which was very disappointing. There was a gorgeous suit covered in dust; that to me is a sign of lazy employees. It wouldn’t have been hard to clean it off before putting it on the rack.

Overall I rated this sale an 8/10. I was definitely more drawn to the Isaia section of the sale given the better pricing and merchandise, but the Eidos section was okay. If you like designer suits but hate the price tags, head over to this sale and stock up!

Frame Sample Sale – Didn’t You Know? Canadian Tuxedos are Back!

By: Ashley Randall 

We had the chance to get an early preview of the Frame Sample Sale at 260 Fifth Avenue. The sale officially. The sale officially opened this morning at 10 AM. To start off, Frame makes great jeans as well as some nice tops. We were disappointed to find that there were only six racks of jeans in comparison to last years sale. As well, the prices for the jeans went up an additional five dollars from last year. The sample selection of jeans was limited as well but there were a good selection of tops and outerwear. The saving grace of the sale was the men’s section! Lots of cute chinos and denim for all your men.

Overall, we rated this sale a 6 out of 10. The jeans are $75 dollars down from $295 but there is a limited selection. If any man in your life is looking for a pair of jeans, we recommend you stop by! We are still dreaming about the white jeans with the feathered bottoms and hoping for some reductions in the next coming days.

The Clothingline Sample Sale has a Variety of Brands

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Clothingline multi-brand sample sale is a mish-mosh of the good, the bad, and the ugly. While some brands have great stuff for amazing prices, other brands have hideous pieces for even more hideous prices. 

This sample sale includes the following brands: Petersyn, Sundays, Pam and Gela, Vivienne Hu, Minnie Rose, Walter Baker, Generation Love, Lele Sadoughi, and leftovers from the R13 sample sale that started weeks ago. Here’s the quick rundown: Petersyn, awesome stuff for great prices. Sundays: super cute, cheap loungewear. Pam and Gela: cute stuff but way overpriced. Vivienne Hu: ugly rip off. Minnie Rose: cute and cozy but too expensive. Walter Baker: funky leather jackets for a good price. Generation Love: meh merchandise but priced well. Lele Sadoughi: cheap looking expensive jewelry. R13: markdowns are great and the prices are finally where they should be. 

Overall I’m giving this sale a 6/10. While some stuff is beautiful and amazingly priced, other stuff is really crappy and way too expensive. It is a strange mix of brands; I wouldn’t bank on leaving with something you love.

The Wolford Sample Sale – What’s The Price to Pay for Chic Bodysuits?

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Wolford Sample Sale is just too pricey. Aside from the extremely unwelcoming staff and the disappointing discounts, the disorganization of the mediocre merchandise was stressful.

The sale is mostly is cash only with the exception of two racks of credit card only items. But regardless, the selection of clothing is just bad. Other than some of the tights and bras, there is nothing I would even consider buying. The retail prices are completely outrageous to begin with so it is no surprise that the sample sale is a rip off too. They did have two boxes of damaged items selling for $10 or $5 dollars. But who wants damaged tights? Not me!

Overall I’m giving this sale a 5/10. To be honest, that’s too generous, but I’m feeling nice today. Don’t bother going to this sale unless you want to feel judged by the employees and leave empty handed.

Montblanc Sample Sale – Are $1,000 Pens Worth It?

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to stop by the Montblanc Sample Sale at 260 Fifth Avenue. Known for its fountain ink pens and leather accessories, the Montblanc sale as well had a large variety of cuff links, watches and briefcases. Keep in mind that Montblanc is not cheap. The pricing at the Montblanc Sample Sale was extremely high, having briefcases around $450 and pens starting at $200.  

Overall we rated the Montblanc Sample Sale a 5/10. This was heavily based on the fact that the merchandise is still very expensive. As well as having limited variety in briefcases, belts and other leather goodies. Just remember that Fathers Day is around the corner and if your Dad loves Montblanc, you should stop by!

Chaser Brand Sample Sale – Comfy Staples For That Rainy Day

By Ashley Randall 

The Chaser Brand Sample Sale featured all your cosy classics for the perfect chill day. The prices ranged from $5 to $50 dollars. Among the many plain tanks and graphic band tees, there were also some nice floral and pinstripe dresses. The room was fairly organized allowing for easy browsing of all the merchandise. There was also a rack of swimwear, just in time to show off at the beach but beware because the sizing was pretty limited! The sale had another rack for children, featuring easy tees for boys and funky ruffled sweats for girls. Whether you are in need of a snuggly tee shirt or a nice printed linen jumpsuit, the Chaser Brand Sample Sale has everything in between. The discounts were pretty good, in comparison the graphic tees sell for around $70 retail!

Overall, we gave this sale a 6.5/10. The pricing is very decent but the selection of merchandise is limited to lounge wear and a couple of dresses/jumpsuits. If you are in need of any lounge wear then look no further!
