At least it was air conditioned inside.

Selection was okay-ish for the most part. Everything was 70% off the original price (I'm guessing the 90% comes in tomorrow). There were definitely some good things but it seemed like there were really only two tables of menswear and one tiny rack of a handful of outerwear pieces. Shoes were almost exclusively leather sandals except for two or three pairs of Viberg boots (which was my only purchase -- $250~ down from $855). 

I definitely wouldn't make a day out of going if you weren't already going - at least not today.


Side note: there's no tax if you bring cash, which would've been nice to know beforehand.

Just went there. It was a colossal waste of my time. The men's selection was quite thin as mentioned. There were a lot of pants but most items were ugly as sin.

The warehouse needed more lighting and better organization. It just makes shopping even more impossible.

Did you grab the black oil tan roughout scout boots?  I was lucky to get a pair of snuff kudu.

Ugh, so jealous. I didn't even see the kudu ones. What size did you get?

Size 8. I got in line around 10:30. Only thing I got were Vibergs as well. Went looking for EG but only saw maybe one or two things and a needles jacket.

Argh. I'd have gone so much earlier if I knew there was a chance of getting in earlier than 11am. I was just chilling with my Yeastie Boys breakfast 2 blocks away.

So glad I did not attempt to go with my three kids in between AYSO games!

How did you guys find out about the sale? I used to go to the OBEY sale before it got all bullshit crazy 3-4 hour wait times.

Saw it on their Instagram and was also emailed later via their mailing list.

i joined their mailing list when i visited their store. i did so reluctantly but the sales rep promised that they'd only email me about big sales. so far so good. no junk email at all. too bad the sample sale was a shit show.

Where is a cool place to bring a date for drinks, that isn't standing room packed? Somewhere comfy would be nice

Far Bar
Hotel Fig, out by the pool.
post #2652 of 2982
Hotel Fig is cool. I also like the bar at Cliff's Edge in Silver Lake.
post #2653 of 2982
Fig is cool… Cliff's Edge as well. I think it depends on the vibe you're going for and the budget. La Boheme, the Wellesbourne, Bar Chloe??

Last night I went to Rosenthal Winery in Malibu for a tasting and picnic. The wine is average at best, but you can bring your own picnic, sit outside, take the underpass walkway over to the beach right near Topanga and watch the sunset and come back and drink more wine. There is live jazz on the weekends, but it looks like the type of place that would not be as enjoyable once packed. It was a quiet ghost town yesterday late afternoon and it was fantastic.

Rosenthal gets crowded on the weekends, and a shit show.

Do you mean it becomes a shit show because it's crowded, or is the live jazz on the weekends a shitty show? Or both perhaps!
