LOWER EAST SIDE—Starting this Saturday and running through Monday, the Tim Hamilton sale at 195 Chrystie Street will be open to the public. At the preview today, we found everything from staples like grey trousers and striped button-up shirts to metallic capes and red leather vinyl jackets. The looks are also diverse, with London-style streetwear (like super skinny jeans with zippers) set up beside knit long underwear and brightly colored swim trunks. Prices also range widely. The most expensive items are refined leather jackets that go up to $800 (made by the same people as Lanvin leathers). But the sale also includes long and short sleeved t-shirts in solids and stripes from $30-$50, subdued button up shirts for $70-$150, and jeans and trousers from $150. There is also a small variety of shoes (including military boots, loafers, and sandals) ranging from $100-$450. Among the best offerings: A wide variety of sweaters, most in neutrals ($400 for cashmere, $75-$300 for wool) and an array of blazers and jackets from workwear to more flamboyant styles priced at $600-$700.—Leah Herman

THE INTERNET—You'll have to wait till next Tuesday, July 20, for Gilt Groupe's Brian Reyes sale, but if you'd like an early look at the selection, you can get one right now. One of Reyes's interns got the sales team to show her five of the available dresses, and posted the looks on her blog. [Couture Refills]
