Wings+Horns – Clothing Sale (December 5 to 7, 2008)

By Guest-writer Kenneth Law

Wings & Horns (formerly Spruce), a relatively cryptic brand of upscale streetwear and casual workwear for men, designed and manufactured in our very own Vancouver, B.C. is having a sample sale at 188 West 6th Ave. I’d be inclined to say it’s one of the best sample sales ever displayed by the label, with stock that includes some of their famous tiger fleece hoodies alongside thermals, buffalo check jackets, raw denim and tees for ridiculously low prices. Sizes are available from XS – XL, and if you go early enough in the day there’s usually enough stock to give you a great selection.

Collections of Wings and Horns can be found locally at Holt Renfrew, Roden Gray,Gravity Pope (footwear) and Dutil Denim (denim). However, it’s a fairly certain guarantee that the deals at this sample sale will outshine anything those stores can offer. While their designs are usually not out of the ordinary enough to jutsify the regular retail price they command, the sheer quality of the material and details in the construction (No YKK zippers!) are definitely worth the prices you will be finding at this sale. Note it is cash only.

DIESEL – Sample Sale (June 12th to 14th)

I personally don’t own anything from Diesel but I remember when I was in Europe all the fashionable European hotties wore Diesel. Here’s the Diesel Website to get an idea of their brand. Even though Diesel operates a women’s line, I usually see guys wearing their premium denim line. I suppose it’s because women have so many more denim options. Anyway, if you end up checking this out, tell me how it goes.

Thurs. June 12th: 10am to 9pm
Fri. June 13th: 10am to 9pm
Sat. June 14th: 12pm to 9pm

@ 708 Powell Street.

55DSL clothing, the “experimental”-Diesel-line-turned-independent will also be available at the sample sale.

Hope the sale is good and happy hunting!
