While a big splurge can make a big difference when it comes to pants, there's no law that you have to break the bank to get a decent pair. Enter the Courtshop Denim sample sale — one of our favorite jean shops is marking down its spring and summer collection of shorts and jeans (think 50 to 70% off). It's your last chance to scoop up this season's styles and washes, for as low as $30 (seriously!). After all, just because it's almost fall doesn't mean it's too late to sport some awesome cutoffs. When: Through August 31, from noon to 8 p.m.
Where: Courtshop, 178 Mulberry Street (between Broome and Kenmare streets); 212-925-1022.
