What: Clothingline’s Ben Sherman/Evisu sale

When: today on my lunch hour

What I saw: There were about 15 people in line to check coats, and the sample sale was crowded, but it was tolerable. The first thing I noticed, however, was how many men were at the sale. The second thing I noticed was that the men’s section had been completely ransacked; apparently men waste no time. My boyfriend loves Ben Sherman shirts, so that’s primarily what I was looking for, but they had…not very many. There were some short-sleeved shirts, but most of them were ugly (especially the pre-wrinkled ones–how ’80s) and they only appeared to come in size large and x-largedium.There were two long-sleeved styles left; one, white with black graffiti-type writing, looked like something Carson would wear on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, and the other, a blue paisley/floral. Otherwise, there were some random T-shirts and pants (again, mostly in large) and a lot of Ben Sherman shoes.

As for the rest of the sale, there was a ton of Ben Sherman for women–some cute jackets, a lot of separates, coats, leather, everything you can think of, basically. The nice thing is that most of the B.S. separates are $29 or for for $100 (T-shirts are $10, heavy coats are $60), which is quite a deal. The Evisu section was a mess–jeans here, a T-shirt there–but they appeared to have a range of sizes and some really cool jeans (jeans and coats are $100, T-shirts are $45). There was also a lot of merchandise left over from previous sales, including a lot of Three Dots T-shirts for $15-$30; cords and jeans from Miss Sixty, Juicy, Blue Cult, and others for $30 (a lot of different sizes in these); and Free People separates for $15-$20. So, shopping for yourself: good. Shopping for your man: not so much. [submitted by [url=]Cheryl[/url]]
