Sometimes, it's just three little words that can mean so, so much. But we're not talking about the classic, "I love you." We're talking about a phrase that can tug at our heartstrings and our wallets. We're talking Acne Sample Sale." And, luckily, the slashed-ticket items are up for grabs starting tomorrow.
We found time to pop on over — you know, just for research purposes — in order to see what's available and, more importantly, for how much. Prices are consistently reasonable considering the hefty tags the wares bare when full-price, though T-shirts will still set you back $50. Sweaters and knits are $100, and all leather and shearling pieces are $350 with lighter jackets (one particularly smart trench coat, included) going for $150. Best of all? Boots are $200 — a far cry from their original price. So, we had no choice but to take advantage when we saw the knee-high Pistol in black (there's still a pair left in blue and a few pairs in the shorter, bootie silhouette). We suggest popping by sometime at lunch or after work for a different kind of shopping happy hour. If our luck is any indication, you won't regret it.
