Because "out with the old, in with the new" is a maxim that applies to more than just your toilet-side Maxim, Austin's most boutique-y clothiers are gathering once again for Le Garage Sale, fire-selling spring/summer goods to make room for fall. Here's what some of the top vendors are offering:
By George: Snug-fitting, heavy-textured numbers from Belgianer Dries Van Noten, simple shirting by Band of Outsiders, Billy Reid polos, and swim trunks from Golden Goose that are bound to get you laid. In a pool!
Estilo: 75% off the likes of button-downs from Ben Sherman, sport coats and jackets from NYC utilitarians Eubiq, and pastel summer blazers from Denmark's Sand, though if those blazers grow too popular, their production could seriously erode the country's 7314km of tidal shoreline.
Parts & Labour: Sarcastic tees from locals like Futureman ("Stop Dallasing Austin", "My Other Car is my F**king Legs"), Bearded Lady ('80s lady snorting white powder that spells Austin), and One Kolor, known for coining the slogan "Booze, the Instant Vacation".
Since you're bound to have a birthday/anniversary/royal screw-up just around the corner, there'll be plenty of potential gifts for the lady, like artisan housewares from Westlake's Sanctuary, and clothing from SoCo newcomer The Impeccable Pig -- also perfect for the man who keeps his magazines-whose-covers-all-have-famous-boobs-on-them stacked nice and tidy.
