First Ascent Sale

Post by Rastaman » Mon Aug 29, 2011 12:54 pm

Wow what a Sale!

I came away with the following loot:

1 "Glacier Extreme" Down Full Jacket
1 Down Sleeveless Jacket
1 Fleece Top
6 Shirts
2 Shorts
1 Cycling Top
1 Cycling Bib Shorts

Total Cost R2450 of which R1250 was the 2 Down Jackets.
So the rest of the 11 items cost R1200 which works out to R109 bucks each.
Considering the quality and life that I have had from my previous and current First Ascent Clothing I am a extremely happy customer.

The pic was taken at 6:50am by the way!

Wow! I feel for the staff member who had to open the doors (fearing the stampede of customers) :P

Hey rastaman

are you an xxxl i don't ask to embarrass you it's just that those were the only sizes i could find in the down jacket dept.

Also came away with some loot, i unfortunatly i am of average build, average hight, pretty average all round.

So the clearance sales don't really work for me.

Amazing thing is that the Pic only shows one third of the Que!
I thought how many people will be there before 7am but there must have been close to 1000?

I am not a XXXL more of a L or XL but First Ascent XXX sizes are not that much bigger and the jacket fits nicely especially with layers under.
Hey for R750 bucks I would have bought the jacket if it was bright pink!

Almost forgot to mention that my unnderpant size is definately XXXL.
Why do First Ascent not make underpants?

Yes, there will be other goodies on SALE. We have 1000's of Tees, shorts and there is also some new stock that has been taken to the sale venue (top secret). If you were at last weeks sale, you may still find a bargain or two, but we cleared most of the big down jackets, etc last week.

We are starting at 8am this week and I would say you will be OK if you get there just before to miss any major queue's.

I wish you guys would hold one of these "sales" in JHB, but seeing the turnout on those pics it's clear that you don't really need to.
