The Rag & Bone Sample Sale was a pretty good sale, especially if you are looking for sweaters. They have a ton of sweaters, outerwear, blazers etc and the prices are pretty good (most expensive items are $300). The samples were even better, costing about half of everything else. I think that is your best bet for a good deal, if you are willing to dig through haphazardly thrown items in one small corner.
I was so disappointed by the lack of denim, like they barely had any but I still managed to find two pairs. The shoe selection was ok, not great but you can definitely find something. Beware the crowds though, I waited on line to pay for half an hour so I can only imagine what the rest of the week will be like.
Overall, I gave this sale a 7.5/10. I think the best time to go is at the end of the sale when it’s (hopefully) discounted even more.

After going to this Rag and Bone sample sale, I still can’t decide whether or not I think the discounts are good. But given that this sale is hosted by 260, I’m not surprised. Regardless of that though, I am satisfied by the large selection of merchandise that they have at the sale.
Firstly, I would like to emphasize how annoyed I was going into this sale. It was raining cats and dogs and there was a line of customers waiting to be admitted to the sale. But despite the torrential downpour, the 260 employees would not let anyone in one second before the posted opening time. They really don’t have any regard for their shoppers over there. When I finally got in after being completely soaked though, I was happy with the amount of merchandise they had
available. There was a really good selection of shoes, pants/jeans, and sweaters, but I was expecting there to be more leather jackets; there weren’t any classic styles, only leather bombers. There was one nice suede biker jacket, but that was it. They had sample jeans and shoes for 50 bucks, and they were actually really cute! Most of the womens sample shoes were a size 37, so if you have little feet, hurry over! They also had a ton of awesome hats for the winter and summer, as well as some cute bags. And another thing I noticed is that most of the products came in small sizes; I saw a lot of XS and XXS, but not a lot of M and L.
A lot of the stuff at this sale is selling for around 70% off retail, but not all of the products are discounted that well. Although the prices look really steep on the price list (which they kind of are) relative to the retail prices, they’re not that horrible. Knowing 260 they’ll slash their prices on the final days of the sale, so if you’re willing to wait it out, I’d say do it. Originally on Instagram I rated this sale an 8/10, but after reevaluating I’m giving it a 6/10, and I’m sure you can all tell why. Happy shopping!
