Probably should have mentioned it before it happened

Every six months or so Folk, YMC and Oliver Spencer team up for a sample sale. It usually blows up at the Londonewcastle Project Space in Shoreditch. Anyway. It did. On Friday. And ran over the weekend. You know, the weekend just gone. You didn’t know about it? Owwwww. Baby, you’ve shamed yourself. That’s harshness man. Huh. Arsh. Ness.

If you like the above brands, sign up to their socials now and you’ll get deeticals on the next one. I’ve been to a bunch and they’re always worth a look. The discounts are mad strong – a jacket that’s usually around 300 will be about 80-90.  YMC T-shirts are 15 quid. Folk scarves are a tenner.

There’s always a bundle of older stuff mixed in, but the amount of sample stuff from the current season was enormous this time round. There was a huge YMC section, with piles of sneakers from their current collection for just 25 golden coins.

Aside from the brutal bargains, you’ll also get to see… a tedious amount of bros in Nike Roshe Runs, an increasing amount of women’s stock, the bloke that invented Folk, boxes of unwanted socks, hats and belts and a steez-heavy queue to get in, full of people sideways judging each others’ looks.

You’ll also witness the phenomenon of desperate hypelords scrabbling around, protecting their ‘islands’ of swag. These bro’s ‘might buy’ piles are as ample as they are sacred. Personally, I think a bit of decorum is called for, Just be prepared to see a load of bros setting up camp around a mound of unspectacular sweatshirts, of which they might actually drop for one. And if you’re really lucky, you might get a good long look at a dude’s boil covered bum cheeks and anus pipe, as he publicly tries on a pair of slacks. He didn’t charge me for it though. Bargain.
