Grenson sale was actually not bad. G0 range were 80 quid, G1 70, G2 at 60. Press samples at 40. Didn't get anything myself but my girl got a pair of boots. Most people came out with at least 2 pairs of shoes/boots

Present was ok, they've got a good amount of stuff from William Fox & Sons but nothing else too much really. Never been to one before so can't comment.

Gimme5 - not amazing. Tonnes of Stussy and Norse Projects tat, nothing noteworthy.

A couple of pairs of vis denim, all non wash. £150 iirc. A few real mccoys sweats, all with collegiate style prints on the front. Navy/grey, size l and xl, £70.

Best bargain was an acronym trench coat in L for £200, came with that ridiculous body harness thing for carrying your keys. Looked like they had loads of stock behind the till still to put out.

Went to all 3 sales today, not great.

Albam/Grenson -

Grenson loads of stock but nothing particularly nice, popular styles were all in garish colours or had noticeable faults. Was a giant pile of shoes which were just broken as well. Seems that this was a genuine 2nds and sample sale unlike before when it was excess stock.

Women's seemed to have better bits from quick look.

Didn't look like they had any new stock to put out

Present -

75% of it was William fox stuff. Some Same stuff as previous sample sale in there as well.

Gimme 5 -

50% Stussy, 35% Norse and 15% Hideout stuff.
Stussy was same prices as always, didnt really have a proper look but seemed to have most sizes in lots of styles. Lots of Norse stuff as well but again didn't look too much, saw shirts were £30 or £40, Hats and scarves £20.

Hideout stuff wasn't much but more expensive than the previous sale.
Headporter shirts £80, Wtaps sweats £80, Wtaps polos £40, Mccoys sweats in all sizes £70 had prints on front though, 1 national athletic crew in XL £40 I think, 1 Pair post shorts £80, Neighbourhood and wtaps tees £40, original fake tees £30, Neighbourhood tote £50, Saw few pairs visvim jeans didnt see price, Few apc x carhart chinos for £40, Reebok x Porter trainers £60, Saw couple original fake boxers for £20 with the chomper waistband, some palace t shirts and polos for £20-30, long sleeve palace bits for £40. Tenc Jackets for £250 -350 all black ones

Picked up a McCoys pullover hoody No Print for £60, think they all went though, and a NBHD tote for £50. All hideout brands seemed to be double price it was previous sale

Asked someone behind the counter whether they had any acronym. She said "yeah, maybe, somewhere…". These aren't the staff that worked at hideout are they.

They had some tenc for £350 (Parkas and field). copped a shearling hood liner and a british remains tee for £5. Saw the last bit of veilance (insulated mac) go.

When looking through the tenc stuff though I heard one person say "This is all HBA shit innit" Puzzled

Edit: ok

sifted through the tat i bought at gimme 5 and unfortunately this doesn't fit, WTAPS tee size L (fits slim medium i'd say):

http://www.endclothing.co.uk/wtaps-blank-tee-205205.html

£35 posted (can't remember if i paid £30 or £40), thought i'd pop it up here before classifieds.

Ten C M65 looked/felt amazing. (btw went fri, have no idea what stock is now…)
