NY Sample Sale Report: Tom Scott

Stopped by the Tom Scott Sale over lunch at the Fashion Incubator today. I was thrilled to see the spaces set up for the talented young designers were clean, bright and modern.

It was a small space but I was the only customer browsing the racks. There were only 2 racks altogether and they held a multitude of styles in sizes XS-L. The color palette was very sophisticated and predominantly neutrals: heather grey; charcoal; black; white; putty and nude. As for styles there were several sheer jersey leggings for $50 a pop as well as black, nude and charcoal seamed knee length leggings with fun zipper details. Also sheer jersey tees & dresses with panel details or cut outs ran from $75-125. Most affordable item I spotted was a lone pair of sheer fingerless gloves at just $20. There were also interesting textured knits at $125-200. In addition there were a few random inspiration samples included retro patterned sweaters, a shirt collar and a vintage cable knit.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. No “real” fitting room but they have a small nook behind a wall where you can have your own private dressing room and a large mirror by the racks where you can check yourself out in.

If you are into that downtown cool NYC aesthetic that is slightly reminiscent of the style of Jen Kao/Katie Gallagher this is a sale that I’m sure you’ll love to check out. While the prices are not rock bottom, it is still very affordable for the type and quality of the merch available. A very easy going relaxed shopping experience with not much competition. Sale runs til 8pm tonight!
