That Jean Shop… Revisited

By Suzanne O'Connor

Filed Under: Apparel, Men, Women,

If heading into the bowels of DTLA to find a pair of designer jeans at a Sample Sale is just not on your radar, consider popping into That Jean Shop in the Mid Wilshire district.

Having reviewed this indie outlet back in 2010, this visit, i noticed the shop is over packed with new product. The deals are still here. The pricing here on NWT current & last seasons designer jeans and fashion apparel is 30-60% off of original retail.

Shop owner, Neta is an expert fitter and really knows her denim lines.  You ‘ll find a great selection in a wide variety of different washes, cuts and embellishments for guys and gals by Ralph Lauren RRL, Rag N Bone, Hudson, Derek Lam 10 Crosby, Mother, Frame, Vince, Joes Jeans Black Orchid, Simon Miller and more.

Generally all jeans are priced at $130-$150 instead of $190-$350. They have a dressing room with a large mirror so you can really check how the jeans look on you which you rarely find at a Sample Sale.

The thing here is volume. The more you buy, the lower the pricing goes. You will have to bring some basic negotiating skills. Haggling a bit looks like its part of the experience here.

They also just got in a new shipment of Wildfox tops, tees and sweats in at $17-$45 instead of $88-$175. Considering the Wildfox Sunset boutique is closing, this is a great opportunity to find this line for less. Plus a shipment of Beach Bunny is on it’s way!

Sizing runs 28-44 for guys and 23-32 for gals. Parking is metered or on a side street.  The savings & selection are worth the extra effort.
Neta is helpful, knowledgeable and charming. You’ll save some loot and make a new friend.
