Just got back from the sample sale in Santa Ana, CA.
I got there around 1130 but i heard from some that there were people there three hours before 11 for the five panels. I don't know how many they had out but I saw a kid with three or four 5 panels to himself. One of them was the diamonds one.
They had a bunch of stuff though. Tees, sweaters, hoodies, hats, belts, flannels, shorts, etc. The sizes were very limited and a lot of it was back catalog stuff (still some good shit), but there were also a few from the 2012 Fall/Holiday LookBook. The ones that stood out from the Fall/Holiday lookbook were as follows:
- Happiness is... Crew Sweater
- Trotter Jacket
- Brick Red Corduroy Snapback Hat
- Numan Tee
- Professor Crew Sweater (grey w/ black pocket)
Tee's: $10 or 3 for $20
Five Panels: $25
I had already paid for 3 tees, 2 jackets (one was the Trotter Jacket in the fall/holiday lookbook), a Corduroy snapback (brick red), some glassy shades and a Stacks board and just wanted to say later to Andy before i left. He recognized me from the Facebook and showed me his secret stash of 5 panels and asked if id be down for any! He showed me some exclusive stuff, some stuff for Fall launch, etc.
Inside, there was the tie dye corduroy five panel, diamonds five panels, a BROWN corduroy snapback, some other badass ones.
I thanked him for the privilege of showing me the special stash and ended up trading the brick red cord snapback for the brown one and got the Tie Dye Five Panel!
All in all, i spent way more than I wanted to, but I got some clothes for the rest of the year, i think. Still waiting for the Marshall shirt jacket and some of those really cool pocket tee's.
