Wasn't bad but I'm not sure it was as good as the last one - seemed to be less stock in the folk area (the rails just went around the outside of the room). Plenty of early people came out with loads but I'm sure there will be restocks.
Some nice oliver spencer jackets and bombers from last A/W for £90. Couple of lightweight sand coloured engineered garments jackets snuck in there and a nice han kjobenhavn sweat if you are xl. YMC was really busy when I was there and I didn't have long so didn't get a great look round.

Yeah Folk/YMC isn't worth a look if you're a Medium/Large.
Just up the road there's a Pendleton sale this weekend at their showroom with some good stuff in, definitely worth a look.
Got a chore jacket and a plaid western shirt for cheap: https://www.facebook.com/events/333748900083848/

Nowhere near as good as last year and far more people. Queue was 200-300 strong before opening at 12.

3 sections - Oliver Spencer, YMC and Folk.

Oliver Spencer - Personally I think OS is a load of shit, both in quality, design and price-point. Tons of stock at last years prices (shirts 3 for 90 I think, or 3 for 100). But personally I think you need to be off your rocker to buy OS.

YMC - Lots of stock, but just rammo. Prices seemed pretty fair (shirts 30, basic tees 10 each or 3 for 25), though personally think YMC has been off for a while now, don't get on with the ultra-loose fit.

Folk - Appeared to be mostly stock from last years sample sale, just not a lot there. Very few rails for sizes 2,3,4,5 and nothing really decent on them.

No Universal Works this time around.

Went to the Hoxton Street sample sale after work today.

Utter shit. Just awful.

Leftover stock from last sample sale at last sample sale prices - which personally I thought were way off point.

No Wings & Horns left, a few Reigning Champ hoodies and sweatshirts in, a few OnTour bits (looking at about £85 - £95 for a pair of trousers) - loads of Marlboro Classics bits (cheap looking shirts and jeans) and tons of TK Maxx-esque mega euro-trash bits from the Italian labels.

No markdowns, no haggling over prices.

Don't get this one and don't get where they're pulling the prices from. It's not a sample sale so much as dead stock at 30-50% off RRP. Avoid - feels like a con.

Most ACNE retail stores are having 40% preview sales starting Friday, don't know if the London store is included or if you need an invite.
