*SAMPLE SALE* Yes, Boss

Always popular amongst sartorially savvy gentlemen, the Hugo Boss sample sale kicked off this morning and I started my Monday shopping at the brand's NYC headquarters. If you're ready to freshen up your office look, waste no time and check out their deeply discounted offerings.

It goes without saying that the Hugo Boss sample sale is one of NYC's must attend events (especially for the guys) and this week's sale is no different. With well over 70 people lined up outside their corporate showroom on Day 1, I was able to really soak in all the excitement. Just like the great discounts offered at previous events, the ambiance and merchandise layout were exactly the same this time around.

Per usual, the women's section was situated at the far left and merchandise was comprised of office separates, outerwear, daytime dresses, shoes, handbags (only 4 bags were spotted when I was there), and accessories. Right off the bat, it was easy to notice that sizes and selections were on the low end when compared to the men's area. Prices were very reasonable though. Blazers/jackets were $100, trousers & skirts were $45, shorts were $30, sweaters were $60, blouses & tanks were $40, dresses were $150, floor length gowns were $200, spring jackets were $150, and coats & downs were $185. In the shoe section, I found several varieties of basic pumps, slingbacks, smoking slippers, and sandals. Shoes were priced anywhere between $40 for flats to $110 for booties.

Now that I covered the women's offerings, let's talk about the sale's main attraction which was in the men's section. For the guys, there were TONS of inventory to browse through today. Items were mainly divided into three groups (clothing, shoes, and accessories) and there was a large contingent of male shoppers busily picking out their new wardrobes. Long aisles of racks held $55 dress shirts, $60 sweaters, $40 polos, $60 hoodies, $45 jeans, $30 shorts, $35 sweatpants, $100 jean jackets, $130 spring jackets, $185 wool coats, $30 swimwear, $195~$275 leather jackets, $195 sports coats, and $350 suits. The selection on footwear was as diverse with different styles like lace-up oxfords, penny loafers, sandals and sneakers. Prices ranged from $30 to $85. In addition to clothes and shoes, there were many small accessories (perfect gift ideas) like $30 silk ties, $20 pocket squares, $30 cufflinks, $15 hats, $40 leather belts, and $30 sleepwear.

If you need to shop for your husband, boyfriend or male friend, you don't want to miss this chance. With enticing price points and generous inventory, you and your male companion will most likely come out feeling quite pleased. The only downside at today's Hugo Boss sample sale for me was the fact that I didn't find any Jason Wu designs (perhaps next year?).
