Earnest Sewn is hosting a sample sale in the Meatpacking District through next Tuesday, February 26th. Unlike its previous sample sales, the discounted merchandise has filled the store on Washington Street. Walking in at first, I wasn’t completely sure that I was in the right place. Everything was neatly organized and displayed inside with signs stating the markdowns.
There are plenty of staffers willing to help you find what you need. As expected, the brand’s denim jeans dominate. The best deal: actual samples found in boxes towards the back of the room. There’s a run of sizes and they’re just $40. If you can’t find any styles you like in the sample boxes, there are all sorts of jeans (current stock & past season) neatly folded throughout the store ($99 or 2 for $150).
Other than denim, displayed near the front window were several styles of Repetto footwear (flats range in price from $85-$136, ankle boots under $300); sizing is limited and ranged from 38-40. Also available throughout the store were wovens/hoodies ($45), long-sleeve men’s tees ($35), women’s knits ($35), basic tees ($15) and kids denim ($40).
Where/When: Earnest Sewn NYC, 821 Washington Street( b/w Little West 12th Street & Gansevoort), NY, NY; Feb 21-26; Mon-Sat (11am-7pm), Sun (11am-6pm).
