Scoop Warehouse Sale Fizzles

By TJ Kennedy

The final consolidation of the Scoop Warehouse Sale is well underway at the Meatpacking location. Although the racks are stocked, it takes quite a bit of determination to find a stand out piece that is actually in your size.

The top floor is mostly summer tanks and jeans, with a few exceptional Missoni print tops & dresses. Prices, unfortunately, still range around $1,000. The jeans, however, were marked down a fair amount. Pairs that retailed for almost $300 were down to just $100. If you're in the market for denim, now is the time to pounce.

The downstairs selection of accessories is grim, but there were several light sweaters that are ideal for this time of year. There are very few pairs of shoes, no handbags, and a ton of belts. A gorgeous hunter green Marc Jacobs wool jacket caught everyone's eye, but only large sizes were left.



The men's selection was much more plentiful, with John Varvatos tees for $50, Rag & Bone knit sweaters around $200, and cashmere crew sweaters from a variety of designers. Might we suggest picking up a thing or two for your over-worked, under-styled boyfriend?

While prices were generally marked down just 50%, an employee pointed out that select items would be further discounted at the register. We assume the deals will get better as the sale continues but we wouldn't suggest attending with very high hopes.

listen everyone, there is a new Fashion Marketplace in the works. Sample sales are great for getting brand name clothing for cheap, but what about the independent designers who are brave enough to compete against the big brand names?
