Benny Gold End-of-Season Sale

The Benny Gold End-of-Season Sale only happens twice a year (the San Francisco label doesn’t mess with sale after sale after deal after promo), so now’s the time to buy if you’re looking for the skater brand’s shirts, hats and accessories on the cheap.

Dress for Less: gr.dano Sample Sale


If there’s a San Francisco-based fashion label that’s getting the lion’s share of the fashion buzz lately, it’s got to be gr.dano. Not only was the brand selected recently for the California Design Biennial (past honorees have include the likes of Rodarte and Trina Turk), but we hear through our trusty sources that a slew of celebs and more than a few prominent fashion publications have been scoping the line for upcoming appearances and style shoots. For the time being, we’ll stay mum on the particulars, but suffice to say that this is one local label poised for recognition far beyond the Bay Area.

And that’s all the more reason to head to the first gr.dano trunk show and sample sale, taking place today and tomorrow at 440 Brannan Studio, where you’ll often find the label’s Jill Giordano and Brian Scheyer hard at work on the line. It’s a rare chance to snag current and past season items from the line at up to 80 percent off retail.
