Clothingline in Midtown is hosting a Theory sample sale this week selling off women’s and men’s actual samples and what sale organizers describe as “slight irregulars.” The headline says it all – damaged goods.  Almost every garment I picked up had a hole, rip, torn, or thread pull on it.

If you can live with a rip here or a hole there, then you’ll find some bargains.  But be prepared to spend time looking through the racks, some of the garments are in pretty bad shape.  Separates start at $15 for tees, $35 for blouses, skirts and knits including sweaters.  Dresses and pants are tagged at $45.  Blazers, sport jackets and outerwear at $60.  Leather jackets at $99 (I actually spotted a few nice men’s pieces in good condition).  For women, there was an abundance of blazers, pants, cashmere sweaters, dresses and more in a range of sizes – but mostly smalls and mediums.  For men, lots of shirts, jackets and pants.

The sales people are gruff as usual.  There is a dressing room set up so you can see if items fit properly since all sales are final.

Where/When:  Clothingline 261 W. 36th Street (b/w 7th and 8th Avenue), 2nd Floor.
