Vintage-fashion collector Christopher Arblaster has amassed more than 150 coats and jackets for his shop, Filter Store. He planned to hold a sale for winter, but he’s a “bad business person” – his words. So he’s holding a two-day coat sale halfway into the season.

“To acknowledge that these coats and jackets are less useful … halfway through winter than before it”, he’s offering a one per cent discount for each day into winter. That means Filter Store’s full collection of coats and jackets will be available for 43 per cent off on Friday July 13 and 44 per cent off on Saturday July 14.

Expect luxurious winter garments from European and Japanese labels such as Comme des Garcons, Dirk Bikkembergs, Dries van Noten, Giorgio Armani, Helmut Lang, Issey Miyake, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jil Sander, Junya Watanabe, Kenzo, Maison Martin Margiela, Undercover, Yohji Yamamoto and more.

The Filter Store coat sale is on Friday July 13 from 10am to 9pm and Saturday July 14 from 10am to 5pm at the Cloister Workrooms on Level 2, 25 Gresham Street, Adelaide.
