What To Snag At The Acne Sample Sale

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.
