Chelsea Market, Hugo Boss sample sale report

Today I met an old friend from Texas for brunch at Cookshop, which is conveniently close to Chelsea Market! Despite the rain, we hiked it down a block and around the corner and visited the Prive sample sale happening at Chelsea Market. The sale has TONS of clothes, mostly womens. Pretty much everything is $65 or less. Tanks, tops, dresses, t-shirts, denim from Edun, Iisli, T Luxury, Lewis Cho, J Brand, Free People, and a pair of Diesel shoes. If you are looking for summer clothes, i.e. lots of cotton camis/thin straps/airy material, you will find gold here. For men, there's a long row of t-shirts, and Ben Sherman and Original Penguin short-sleeve button-down shirts and pants along the back. I walked away with a T Luxury tank top for $15!

Due to the rain we nixed walking around the Meatpacking District and cabbed it straight to the Hugo Boss sale held by Soiffer Haskin. The sale is really really good for men. Mens t-shirts and knits are $45, shoes are $99, button-down shirts $59.99, polos $39.99, and most have discounts for buying more than 1 item (i.e. polos are 3 for $99.99, but $39.99 each). There are tons and tons of suits! Mostly around $400, all sizes. There were also messenger bags and duffle bags, priced $99+.

Womens selection is very small, 6 racks of tops in all sizes ($39.99 each or 3 for $99.99), a few boxes of belts, handbags ($199+), and shoes ($99.99). There are fitting rooms in the back for men and women.

If you love Hugo Boss, this is a MUST for you. I found 3 tops I loved (for $99.99, retail $515), and my (male) friend got a pair of leather loafers, a pair of ankle boots, a t-shirt, and 2 button-down shirts for a total of $377.
