Shopped and Scrooged #3: W29’s Sample Sale, featuring Ashish

December 01, 2010

Join us as we count down to Winter Gift Day (December 25) with our picks for the best presents to bestow on friends and family and that dude you have to buy something for in the office.

What it is. W29 Showroom's Fall/Winter sample sale.

What is it? Every year, after showrooms are done pimping out clothes to magazines and stylists and celebrities from that season's collection, instead of just throwing away the old to make room for the new, they play Santa Claus and sell the beautiful wares at low, low prices. You have to be selective - 80% off the price doesn't make studded, polka-dot Pirate shirts a good idea. But with some select spots, like W29 Showroom here in New York, you're guaranteed reputable choices. Case in point: they're hawking Ashish's fall collection, which we told you was amazing many months ago but have yet to add to our closet. Best of all, the sample sale is online this year, so you don't even have to venture out into today's rain.

Who do you give it to? Ladies, and urban woodsmen dudes courageous enough to wear sequined flannel.

Where to get it. W29 Showroom
