SSENSE Private Sale: 100 Under $300
All the weirdest and most wonderful finds at prices on this mortal coil.
Hey. It’s that time of year when logic goes out the window and paying $700 for a pair of jeans somehow seems reasonable under the auspices of the SSENSE private sale, and I’m here to remind you that 99.9% of the world can’t afford what the .01% deems a steal. $300 is a lot of money, I don’t have $300 in my bank account right now, but it’s my personal mental threshold for even imagining making a purchase without months of consideration, meditation, and planning, so I’ve collected everything I’ve found in the sale so far that piques my interest, whether it’s a bizzaro find that can’t be justified as an investment piece, a surefire staple that’s finally in the realm of accessibility, or something so discounted that it could be worthy of Special Treat status without inducing an existential panic when you press Purchase—100 items total.
If anyone is interested in a price-agnostic overview of the sale, let me know, but I truly strive to make this blog a place you can come to for inspiration less than aspiration, and I feel insane recommending products I could literally never conceive of dropping a rack on. If you’re in a financial place to do so, I’d be ecstatic to create a personalized shopping list for you—just subscribe below for $7/month and respond to this email, and we’ll take a fun trip down SSENSE street together based on your size, budget, and inspirations!
The below list is separated by category and includes clothing for any gender, the only qualification is that nothing, pre-shipping and taxes, costs over $300. Let me know if you’d like me to make a public list when the public sale debuts! Also note that I have not indicated (Sale) on any of the items below as is HR practice, because I don’t like doing unnecessary labor! My favorite pieces are marked with *s, and at the bottom of the post is a list of the brands with the best deals IMHO plus a musical surprise. So sit back, pour yourself a cup of absinthe or Lapsang Souchong (your only two options), and get ready to open so many tabs SSENSE will think you’re a bot like they did me.
If you like these posts, please let me know by liking and commenting here or on HR’s Instagram, subbing to the HR Substack (this) for free or get bonus posts for seven bucks a month, or for ZERO DOLLARS, share (tag me if on IG so I can see and thank you)!
If you cannot afford the $7/month, which I totally understand, respond to any of my email sends and I will get you a $2 subscription or comp you, whatever you need. HR is for everyone!
THANK YOU for being here, and I am always available @humanrepeller on Instagram for sartorial scandals/situations/summons. Here is a little preview of what’s below the paywall:
