This season’s sample sale by pas de calais and its brother brand, Sage de Cret, offers plenty of the Japanese label’s signature looks. Think relaxed sophistication made of quality fabrics. Great layering pieces. The color story is always muted, warm earthy tones.
If you’re after the label’s current pieces, there are a couple of racks of samples for women and men. Many of the pieces from the Spring 2017 Lookbook can be had here. The only catch is the size (36). But the collection’s fit tends to be roomy so someone who wears a medium can get into many of the items. There are long and short linen jackets, dresses, blouses, sweaters/knits and pants.
Also available are plenty of past season (including fall 2016 and back) stock and samples. Here, you can find a range of sizes but size small prevails. The sale prices for the overstock merchandise is better.
There’s more items for women but the offerings for men are pretty good and worth checking out.
No fitting rooms. However, there are mirrors and if dress you appropriately, you can still try things on.
Not a lot shoes this time around. Some bags and accessories. The bargain bins with tees and shorts are also filled with goodies for just $20.
If you need help, the staff are very friendly and willing to help you style your findings.
