it doesn't say it's a Sample Sale - it says it's a Deadstock Sale.
Yes if you click on the "about" page it mentions "sample pieces", but that's not indicated clearly in the main NC Sale page.
The cold weather parka looks nice, but I really like the asymmetric zipper on the Canadian.For some reason there was a Canadian jacket in washed green in the last sale. But I went with the FW surface jacket instead. I can't say I regret that decision.
