Preview Rag & Bone’s Winter 2012 Sample Sale

Rag & Bone’s Winsor shearling-trimmed coat, $595 (originally $1,895)

If you’ve been to rag & bone sample sales in years past, you’ll find that the setup is similar this season, only with even more generous heaps of clothing in lots of different sizes. Better yet, while you’re hurricaning your way through piles of knits, racks of blazers, and stacks of shoe boxes, an army of salespeople is re-folding, reorganizing, and best of all, restocking everything behind you. So no matter how much you pillage the offerings, there’s plenty for all, and it’s neatly sorted to boot. Things are arranged by size, style, and color, and there’s a curtained-off dressing area with several full-length mirrors. 

Prices are good, but still not cheap (see the full price list, below). Discounts fall roughly between 50 to 60 percent off. On a positive note, plenty of items are still full-price in stores and online, so most of the merchandise is brand-new and perfect for Christmas presents.

Thurs–Fri, 10:30 a.m.–8 p.m.; Sat, noon–7 p.m.; Sun, noon–5 p.m.; 410 W. 16th St., between Ninth and Tenth Aves. (no entrance through Chelsea Market).
