Websites like beyond the rack for men such as Gilt Groupe MenA barrage of questions have flooded in of late about where a gent can find a steal? Namely, are there secret sample sale sites that offer delectable steals for men? Yea! Do women only get to have all the fun? The answer is a baritone NO! You guys can get into the action too. There are actually some major finds online but some sites are better than others and some are not worth joining at all. I'll let you in on which is which and also toss you some invitations so you can start shopping right away... huzzah!

First, what are online sample sales? Sample sales, usually hidden away in NYC or CA, have long been the secret of well dressed types in the editorial business where luxury designer pieces were discretely cleared out for up to 90% off. Not surprisingly this caused scuffling, shoving, snatching, empty-handedness... you get the sad picture. Now all that has moved online! Still hovering under the radar and needing speakeasy like passwords to get you in, online sample sale sites have become the new ebay. Think of them like a bespoke WOOT.
