Went to the rescheduled oipolloi sample sale today. Can work out whether I got there too late or it was just quiet, but it was was a pretty sparse affair with a certain amount of damaged goods.

Nothing for me, a few pairs of Adidas, hairy suede converse and some fairly decent Clarks originals, but it really was scraping the barrel.

Oi Polloi have always been conservative with their stock levels in my experience. Anything particularly special will sell out and nothing half decent will survive the first round of discounts at sale time.

Not surprised if it was slim pickings.

you definitely went too late
I was there 5 minutes before it opened on Friday and the guys were letting people in
they had almost the full range of last years AW norse projects in S/M/L at £20 a pop and I got two jackets, still by hand and Kestin Hare for £50 each down from £400
For oi polloi I couldnt believe how cheap it was
Norse Ketel sweats and hoodies for £20 in navy and greys etc major cheaps
This was the one for a nifty they had in a few sizes

Also patagonia shells in all sizes and colours for £20
Shoe selection was shite but some nice backpacks for £25
Hope they do this every year!

Edit: Some early people were obviously loading up to resell and hoarded 20 items within seconds of it opening which I thought was a bit cunty.

Would've liked some Kestin Hare. I hate the reseller community in Manchester, I swear it's same guys who tout tickets outside the arena.

Still won't beat the absolute feast Mecca that is Manchester TKMaxx.

I thought the TKmaxx stuff was old Brand-Outlet stock? Either way I think most sizes will be either tiny or clown sized. Would be cool if any fukers can scout out the situation.

Ended up making it to the trickers sale this afternoon. Boots £150, Shoes £130. Ended up grabbing a pair of brogues. Had some Margaret Howell derbies which I would have had but a little big. Apparently it’s a twice yearly sale, another due around April.

Thanks Byte for posting about it.
