Sample Sale Report Dec 2009: Mackage

Stopped by the Mackage/Soia & Kyo Sale over lunch today and to my delight I found it to be fairly empty with only a handful of shoppers, so it was definitely easy to navigate around the spacious, well lit showroom featuring fabulous leather, windbreakers, trenches, puffers and wool jackets for both Men & Women.

To note the showroom requires coat check, the elevator is a little slow and it's cash only. There is a Chase bank located conveniently across the street to hop by if you're not crunched for time and figure out what it is you want to spend first :) There are also a couple of huge mirrors that make it easy to see how the coats look on.

For the Mackage label there were no puffers left for women as they were the hot item that sold out the first morning of the sale! But if you're in need of any other form of outerwear, it's here.

Here are some of the prices I spyed. Wool Coat $275, Trench$248, Nylon Windbreakers $135, Leather $349. Luxe long shearling coats were definitely the most expensive item at the sale at 50% off $2640.

For women they have sizes XXS to L available but most prevalent sizing is in the XS-S category. As the with the previous sale, everything was 50% off retail.

The leather jacket on the right was a definite hot seller priced at 50% off $649.

On the cheaper end of the spectrum was the Soia & Kyo coats. Perhaps they sold out but they didn't have as many multiples in styles as the Mackage brand. Puffers for $138, Wool for $175 to 198, Leather $220 (?). These feature great styling, but slightly thinner fabrics (than Mackage) and no leather trims but still high quality and fun detailing for about 1/2 the price of Mackage. I actually picked up the purple puffer with the toggles on it to keep me warm in the coming winter months!

For men they have sizes 38 to 44 available but 38 and 40 are the most prevalent. There are about 3 racks of mens outerwear including 1 1/2 racks of leather, 1 wool rack and 1/2rack of puffers.

A couple of the men's wool coats that were available. I really liked the plaid one with the cable knit sweater collar! I believe it was around $375.

While it's not the cheapest sale ever, I think it's still a great price for high quality, super stylish outerwear that will get you compliments year after year (I speak from experience!). It's a pleasant shopping experience with loads of outerwear choices. Go if you're a size XS/S woman or a size 38/40 man. Tomorrow is the last day!
