Premium Denim at High Street Prices *yes cheaper than Topshop"
When daughter number one informed me at the weekend that she wanted to sell all her old jeans from Topshop, River Island etc on ebay to enable her to purchase a pair of premium denim jeans, "The Recessionista" went into bargain hunter mode! The net-a-porter sale had finished and I decided to have a trawl on Asos as they always have a clearance section. I typed in Sewn as a search at the top of the page, as Earnest Sewn was the first high end brand that sprang to mind and low and behold something came up that I never knew existed and with three teenage daughters who constantly buy from this site, I was amazed I hadn't seen it before! Basically they have an outlet section, with even bigger reductions than their normal clearance section. Across the top it says, Women, Men then Outlet! how had I ever missed this? Basically we got a pair of dark denim skinnies by Earnest Sewn for £35! yes you read it right - original price was £155! Now it seems you have to be quick as there were about 4 Earnest Sewn styles online at the weekend and now there are none, but some of the current bargains in premium denim are Radcliff skinnies at £47 from £145, 18th Amendment flares at £54 from £175, Serfontaine bootcut at £63 from £155, there are also cheaper brands and Victoria Beckhams DVB line, greatly reduced. Now when you think you pay roughly £40 for a pair of jeans from Topshop - this has got to be a good deal! So although you may all be feeling the pinch and may well have given the Sales a miss, just bear in mind when the time for new jeans comes, check out the outlet section here Asos and don't forget to check out your voucher code websites to see if you can make additional savings on any orders placed.
