Totally amazing! Lovely staff and great selections for men! 🥳
Mental layout... literally 4/5 different brands where you had to pay for each brands item at a different till... lots of stock & boxes of stock... mainly for men I would say nice pieces if you can handle the scrum

Left with a shearling leather jacket (men’s) for £300 online for £1,095 from YMC
Wish I’d taken Simona’s advice! Queued for 30 mins and stock very disappointing. The few recent season pieces are overpriced and 90% of the rest of stock very old and/or weird! A rare miss for Showcase!

A fantastic sale with a lot on offer. That said, I'm learning that opening at 10am means queue up at 9! 😅

Bras started at £7 for the oldest stock, but averaged £25-100, knickers for £15-70, Angela dresses in both new and old sizing for around £200-260, accessories to die for starting at £15. Mix of colours this time too, including coveted burnt sienna and rare older blue items.

Sizing was better than the Spring one, with a decent mix between S and L. I managed to pick up a good amount of items in L, and some genuine sample pieces to go with my Kendo bits. Gutted I put back a stunning sample body in L, but given how many other pieces I was able to find I came out smiling.

The ladies are beyond helpful, and so friendly everytime I asked something. It's a great atmosphere, and I had a wonderful time. I'll be back for the next one!
Sweater 50, trousers 45, scarf 30! This is what I am wearing today from the sale! Thank you MoP for great pieces - my first time trying out the brand. And thanks to The BOX for your lovely staff and biggest thanks to Chicmi cupcakes for your amazing comments! ❤️❤️❤️
Samplevsale at it's best.

Great prices. Stock is limited so get there quick!

Also have nude shoes for £25.

Room is small so bear this in mind. Ladies are uber helpful
Just got back from the sale, from a men's perspective the selection was predominantly suits and trousers (formal). Small selection of tops and coats. No boots or shoes.
Wide selection of womens stuff - the wife got jumpers, tops and a skirt. I only ended up getting a tie.
Prices were very good - tie (mens) £10, jumpers £30, skirts £20 and silk tops £25.

This was a Warehouse sale not really a sample sale (very few samples in limited sizes).

Crew is not really my thing, but it was within walking distance from my house.

I went at the opening and there was plenty of stock, both female and male. Mostly it was older last season stock which had not sold in the sales, most items had half price sale stickers attached. I thought the pricing was good if you chose the right things. I bought a chunky Nylon/wool/cashmere mix Cardigan originally priced at £89 and a Merino wool/cashmere mix jumper originally priced at £79 both for £22 each. But for the jumpers originallypriced at £55, the marked down price to £22 is not such a bargain for old stock.

Also I noted some of the stock was “Shop worn” with marks, but they appeared to be happy to marked down an item at the till for the lady in front of me.

Hope this helps.
Went today - lots of mens stock available across all sizes, mainly oxfords/derby/loafers. Not many mens boots available.
My wife was the winner this time around, she got a beautiful pair of blue suede boots (Penny Hiker)
I think the sale is ok if you are size 10. I am size 6 or 8, depending on the cut, and I found nothing. Having read the description on this site, I was expecting to find some small sizes as well. Also, I didn't find the blazers or trousers nice, but the dresses were decent.

The sale is small, there isn't a huge amount of variety. That being said I picked up a huge lamp for £100 reduced from ~£500 & the staff were lovely! The only thing I was a bit disappointed about was some of the pieces themselves - I'd not really heard of Lee Broom, and some of the things (especially glass) were beautiful but a lot of items were plasticky, a bit poorly made and then faulty too. Overall, good stuff to be found but second the logistics point below, I had to get a cab home.

If you have been to past years sales the items were pretty much the same. I felt that the last sale had more stock on their iconic clear crystal cut bulbs - these were snapped up in seconds. Be careful of items have faults - check carefully otherwise there are some steals to be had.

It was my first time in this venue.
Well organised and very helpful staff!
When comes to clothes available- I didn’t find anything for myself . I am size UK 10 -12.
I am glad that I went but it is unlikely that I will go to Reiss Sample Sale again.

A proper warehouse sale. Loads of stock... Shame no big sizes. Don’t bother if you are XL XXL. Only a couple of jeans and corduroys. No polos, shirts or Jackets. On the other hand if you wear S and M plenty of stock!
Prices better than advertised!
Lots of true samples, but also a selection of overstock from recent past seasons. Peter Pilotto jewellery is also stunning. And the Pilotto team were great! Thanks Heather for the styling advice and Alexander for the garment care tips.

For Alighieri I waited 1 hour in the queue, and by the time I was at the front I felt a bit stressed and rushed my decision. Happy with my choice, but regret passing on some earrings and another necklace. I think this section could be better managed so people can have time to consider.

Over all a great sale!
I bought some lovely Pilotto trousers for £93. There was a very slow moving queue for the changing rooms so I just took the risk and bought them without trying them on but luckily they fit perfectly. Such a shame about Alighieri though - there was a huge queue (at least 15 people) when I was there as only one person at a time was allowed to look at the jewellery display. And of course when people made it to the front of the queue, they made no attempt whatsoever to be quick so the poor queue barely moved in the time I was there. When one person spends 20 mins looking at jewellery and there are 15 people ahead of you, that's a potential wait of 5 hours!!! I actually went to buy Alighieri but there was no option to buy quickly if you knew what you wanted and I wasn't willing to lose hours out of my day standing in a queue that didn't move. Especially when there was no guarantee there would be anything left when you made it to the front. Some of those people are probably still in the queue now! Very disappointing.
it opened yesterday!! so most of the good things went ... pricing was a bit confusing tbh... but i got some amazing pieces at a huge % off so i am a super happy bunny! and the best part of the whole thing was the staff they were so lovely and so helpful... side bar... think logistically as i struggled carting my items back to west london
