This is Reiss's third sample sale in NYC, but my first. Although prices are on par to their previous sample sales, bargains could be better. I was planning on checking out the sample rack but it was empty. I was told they were still unpacking the samples and it will be out tomorrow morning when the sale opens to the public.
The venue is divided into two. The left side is where you'll find the menswear and the women's wear is to the right. Both genders have lots of choice across all categories. There is apparel and accessories for all seasons and events. Some favorites include; white summer frocks, velvet blazers, shearling coats, duffel bag, cuff links, bow ties, and oversize sweaters.
Accessories are laid out on tables near the fitting room and register. Jewelry, hats, scarves, handbags, wallets, and clutches are available for women. All handbags are $80. That means that a small cross body, a fringed bucket bag, and clutches are the same price. Wallets are considered small leather goods and those are $40. Men's accessories include fedoras, tech cases, card holders, wallets, socks ($10), belts ($30), cuff links ($20), ties ($20), pocket squares, and bags ($80).
Swimwear is in buckets by the stairs. Footwear is all the way in the back of the space. Shoes are $80 and boots are $140. The sale goes through Sunday. You can expect a markdown towards the end of the week.
