Went to the Boss sale,
a bit manic inside, every tom, dick and harry seems to know about it,
saying that there were some decent things to pick up..

2 piece/3 piece mens suits - £250
jeans £45, most of the jeans were pretty ordinary, I personally only ever go for Boss Orange jeans, managed to find a decent pair

Trousers £35, bought a pair for work, v nice, I have found that after a year of wearing a boss suit just to work and back home again, the trouser material frays between the legs such that you can only really wear the blazer!
will be wearing trousers and shirt to worka s opposed to a suit everyday

Cords £35, bought a decent pair of brown cords, will go very nicely with the Shofolks

Other stuff they had but i didnt check the price for were mens shoes,work shirts, ties, bowties, selection of coats etc (had a quick glance, not too inspiring)

basically a bit like TK Maxx, have to search thru all the crap to find the odd gem! I tend to get all my Boss stuff from Germany.

you'll get the annoying eastern europeans at the till who can't afford everything that they have picked up and take an eternity deciding what to discard - twats

hope this helps
does anyone know if Folk do a sample sale?

Sounds like fun!! Just as well I don't mind TK Maxx. Are they all rediculously small sizes though?

The Barbican normally does Nicole Farhi around this month, but they don't seem to have a sale going. Does anyone know if one will be happening at all? I like the YMC stuff that normally is sold.

Thanks

apparently for Boss sale there is new stock everyday,
always best to go there on the first day
the sale however i feel is more orientated to those who have to be suited and booted for work hence a lot of suits, shirts, ties etc..

The organisers have been pushing this event hard and repeatedly, quite surprised really, perhaps a lot of unsold stock as not everything on sale was a sample

Sizes wise, there were a lot of larger sized jeans, (when I was there on the first day of sale), still worth checking out though.

I personally am planning to travel around Germany and Italy this summer (long weekends) with a shopping theme, looking to search out those Italian/German labels from those mysterious retailers…

Have a trip to Bangladesh in the pipeline where a lot of clothing is manufactured!

I though the Lyle & Scott sale was a pile of cack, they basically had tonnes of unsold stock which they refused to sell to discount retailers like TK Maxx.
Every idiot has a piece of Lyle & Scott these days, label cheapened by mass sale and by spreading themselves across too many clothing items, stick to knitwear..

As for Evisu, you must be joking…., I lived in Japan for a couple of years and its not even popular over there!!(I would add True Religion to that category…)

Discreetness is the key…
Just my thoughts, no offense intended

late response but:

NF had a sale at their show rooms off carnaby street a few weeks ago that they didn't publicise much at all. The venue was far too small and pretty rammed; one of the people organising it said they weren't able to put out as much as they wanted due to space issues and that they likely wouldn't be hosting it there again because of this. Shame because their barbican sales were always good, but apparently they were being charged an obscene amount of money for the space and had had enough. I normally bought a lot at the barbican sales but didn't find a thing this time round. YMC were also there but only had about two rails of not great stuff.

Valentino was last month, you've already missed that.
With regards to Burberry, they won't be having another sample sale (as far as I've heard).
