The Theory, Theyskens Theory sample sale is taking place this week in the Garment District. Christina wandered into the Clothingline space yesterday and tells us what she found:

“I stopped by the Theory sample sale about an hour after it opened, but was surprised to find no line to get in. Don’t let that fool you though, the line for the communal dressing room was extremely long.

Unlike the recent Theory/Helmut Lang sample sale that took place earlier this summer, this sale did not have any damaged items. Everything I saw was in perfect condition. There are a lot of great basics for work, which is exactly what Theory is known for. I swear, nearly my entire work wardrobe is made up of Theory clothing. I scored a new suit, black cropped pants, a boxy top, and a short sleeve sweater. I could have bought way more if I had unlimited funds!

The sale consists of Theory and Theyskens’ Theory Spring, Summer, and Pre-Fall merchandise, with an emphasis on Fall. Everything is up to 70% off retail (see price lists). A lot of the Theyskens’ Theory I saw is Spring/Summer, with some really pretty pastel printed dresses. You can find nearly everything at this sale: tees, blouses, sweaters, skirts, shorts, pants, dresses, blazers, suiting, leather, and footwear (flats & pumps at $109; boots at $149). Sizing on clothing ranges from 00-14.

Further markdowns typically happen on the last day; however, there is less merchandise than in past sales so you may not want to wait too long.” – Christina of Lusting for Leather.
