It's officially August, which means the Alexander Wang sample sale is under way. The sale officially starts this week but if past experience is indicative of future discounts we know that the shopping will be great.
The sale always begins with press and employee shopping and opens to the public in the mid-afternoon. That means that the chances of finding a $300 Darcy or $250 Rocco are quite slim. If you really want to catch the good stuff we suggest going early. We will let the definition of early remain vague.
If you can't make it to the sale at the "start" we suggest you set your attention to the "real" samples, which have been found for as little as $10 and basics from T by Alexander Wang that have started at $20. Dresses from the designer collection started at $140.
At the last sale, the promotional materials touted prices up to 80% off. This season, the flier says prices will be up to 70% off. That slight change may indicated that the discount might not be as good as prior seasons. At least, you can always depend on the price cut that comes as the sale progresses.
