Leaving the hood?

I don't know if this is the harbinger of what is to come, but Mike & Chris is having a huge liquidation sale on Friday and Saturday from 10 to 5 at their warehouse (4900 Zambrano St., Commerce), with a number of items expected to be 70-90% off. Here is one illustration of the anticipated rock bottom pricing.

I've been waiting for a long, long time for the leather jackets to fall to this price. Unfortunately, I'll be heading out of town for the long weekend and it is extremely unlikely that I'll have time to take advantage of the sale. It would be even more unfortunate if (gulp) it signals the end of the label; I have thoroughly enjoyed the comfort and practicality of each M&C piece I own, and I have always looked forward to the M&C sample sales to pick up new designs at an affordable price. Hopefully things are not as they appear.

Oh man, I'm jealous. The Rack *never* has their stuff--either because it never makes it there or because it gets nabbed first thing. I've been telling myself I'd just have to buy it retail.

Ambika--that's too bad. I didn't even know that Nordstrom sold the line until recently. But given the state of the economy, the hoodies might end up there.

Marj--I have no idea...I certainly hope they will!

i'm so bummed that i missed it. i love m&c. i didn't hear any online chatter about this particular sample sale so i went over to purse forum to dig more. and the ladies of pf didn't disappoint. some of them who came to the sale said they might have another one soon. nothing official from m&c people but according to pf chatters, m&c filed for bankruptcy and was bought by another company and would still continue to make clothes.
