The Paul Smith sample sale opened to the public Tuesday morning at 260’s Wooster location in Soho. But before the doors opened to everyone, a preview was held for press and VIPs.

This sale tends to favor male shoppers. Sometimes they’ll have a few gems for women. This season, there were actually some good deals for women – handbags and shoes. But get there sooner rather than later!

We were among the first shoppers to get inside. We headed straight for the handbag section which was in the middle of the space inside plastic bins.

Highlights include a medium sized black leather PS by Paul Smith shoulder bag ($125, orig. $495) and a small black suede Paul Smith crossbody embellished with bling ($80, orig. $995) and some other men’s bags. We noticed a number of the diffusion line (PS by Paul Smith) bags but by the time we left, the selection was getting picked over. But don’t fret, they’ll restock throughout this week. In the bins, you’ll also find hats, scarves, socks and bags for men.

After looking at the accessories selection, we headed downstairs to see what was on offer in terms of footwear. This season had lots for men and a surprisingly good selection for women, including heels, flats and boots for $125; sneakers and sandals were priced at $75.

Back upstairs, shoppers will find clothing for both men and women. The women’s selection was limited to several racks of random separates. I quickly perused these racks and found nothing eye-catching.

For men looking for apparel, this sale has plenty to offer you. A wall of suits and racks of shirts, pants and sports jackets throughout the space. Check out the gallery for photos and the price list.

If you happen to stop into the sale, we’d love to hear your thoughts…
