post #27 of 99
ooh. i just checked my email and found the notice.

google maps says it can take between 30 min - 2 hrs to get there from my location.


tempted. VERY tempted to go.


but what can i expect of the sample sales - incorrectly size-labeled denim? cuts that don't match the labels? strange R's that never made it to mass production?

Hi Caleb...It's actually a great sale...definitely worth the drive... and in ^Adelyn's case...she's flying down from Vancouver for it

But you'll find older styles and washes as well as new styles. Sometimes there isn't anything even wrong with them. You do have to look over the jeans since some do have irregularities. Some are minor that you could probably live with if it didn't bother you too much...I mean the jeans are $80-$100, so how picky can you get...lol. There are true samples that either they are considering releasing or was never released. Here is a thread from the last sample sale of what I picked up:

It gets really crowded!!! I got there at 6:45 a.m. and there were already 30 people ahead of me. Then all you do is wait for a couple of hours because the sale doesn't start until 9:00 a.m. You form a line inside the parking structure. Once it gets close to 9, they bring in about the first 100-150 people into the sound stage at the Sony lot. From that group, they let in about 50-75 at a time. I'm not sure how often they let people in after that. I've always been in the first group. There hasn't been a time limit at the ones that I've been to. I left a little after noon and when I got to the structure, there were still people in line

I agree with everything Antolette mentioned.. I also wanted to add that there are jeans that wouldn't be wearable IMO. I've seen ones w/ rips, and even one pair that had the word SAMPLE written on the outside of the jean in giant block letters. Some may be missing buttons as well, or the size will be marked incorrectly. Be sure to check over your items carefully before buying!

Have fun everyone.. I wish I could join you!

Ok, don't get excited but I am thinking about going. I need some answers to some questions first though from you guys that have been before:

What is the parking like?

Is there much there for men?

What are the size ranges like? Are there many bigger sizes?
post #33 of 99
I want to go!!!!!
post #34 of 99
Antolette, let me know if you end up going! I might ask for your services, send you some money and have you get me something if you don't mind.

Adelyn/Judith: pm me your hotel info (area where you're staying) and maybe we can meet up for drinks or dinner on Thursday or Friday.

post #40 of 99
Not sure where we are staying yet. Probably a hotel near the airport as they are more reasonably priced. I'm so excited. Let me know if you guys want me to bring any other sweets or stuff from UK.
post #41 of 99
Really need to know about the parking situation at the studios. Anyone know?
post #42 of 99
There's a garage on site which used to be free but it's now like 5 or 10$. If you come before 7am you have to park on the street first until they open the garage. I think the meters are 25 cents for half an hour

Note to self: bring lots of change!

The last ss in June I had to park on the street because it was before 7am. The ss in November they let us park in the structure before 7am. On the first day of the sale, Friday, parking was free, but when I went back on Sunday, I had to pay $10
post #45 of 99
OMG I want to go, but I can't!

You ladies have SO MUCH FUN!

If there is another one in November and I find out in time I will SO be there! In which case we all have to get together for Martini's and Gossip hour!

LOVE!
post #46 of 99
Awww I wish I can go, but I get off work at 7 am on Friday! grrrrrrrr
I'll just have to wait for the November one if they still have it

You can park in the residential areas too for free, if you look carefully. I did that for June and Nov sale last year, since I came at the crack of dawn -_- and the parking lot wasn't open yet

Go sick, Go sick. I'm sure you have a cold coming on!!

Can anyone else make it to the sale, failing that meet for dinner and drinks in the evening??
post #48 of 99
WOW! HF MEET UP! SHWWWWWWWWWWEEEEEEET!!

I'll get back to you guys later this week to see if I can make it. For sure I won't be able to go Friday. So Saturday and possibly Sunday's my only day!

OH MAN, I hope my friends'll go with me...

* squeals with joy*

Edit: Okay, Sunday I can't go since I have a surprise party to attend to--but that's not til late afternoon.
post #49 of 99
I leave for the UK Saturday evening. Can't you meet for dinner Friday or saturday lunch?
post #50 of 99
I'll be there Friday! Saturday is a no-go since I gotta be in San Diego on the weekend. Who else can make Friday?

And yes - if there's a November sample sale, every HFer should come!
