blackbird jean

There’s a good chance this Insight jacket will be at Blackbird’s warehouse sale at the end of the week.

Proving that when you’re as cool and coveted as Blackbird, you don’t need to provide ample notice, the mostly men’s Ballard shop announced yesterday afternoon that the spring installment of its semi-annual sale would be this Thursday and Friday, April 21 and 22.

Expect discounts of up to 80 percent on past season merchandise whether you’re going for Blackbird’s classic urban prepster Gant-Filson thing or the more avant-garde genderless, draped blacker-than-black vibe.

If you’re curious about what to expect, I’d suggest trolling the sale pages on Blackbird’s site. Though there’s no guarantee that items there will show up with red lined prices on Thursday and Friday, chances would have to be in your favor that they will.

Doors open at 8 each morning; staff is luring early birds with promises of good deals and prizes for those who arrive when the doors open.
