The Timothy Heenan Showroom was nice enough to let us take a sneak peek at their sample sale before it opened to the public this morning at 9am. Inside we found a plethora of options for guys, and even a few for you ladies out there. The biggest incentive to go is the Billykirk bags. Make your way back to tables on the left and you'll be greeted with rows of the stylish and sturdy canvas bags, with different colors in each style. Some of the bags available included 16" to 20" carryalls ($160 to $170), padded flight bags ($160) and briefcases ($165). When we were there, they were still unpacking the wallets, iPad cases and smaller accessories.
If you're not in the market for accessories, you're bound to find something in the racks divided up by brand that circle the space. Prices are indicated at the end of each rack, making it super easy to know what you're getting your wallet into. The Rxmance racks offer up stylized tees ($15), long sleeves tops ($30) and some cotton jersey shorts and pants ($30) in x-small (you hear that, ladies?) and medium.
The Sidian, Ersatz & Vanes racks had style-trending graphic button ups ($50) in medium. On the Isaora, rack we found some cool tops for $50 in various sizes, including a BWGH x Kitsune sweatshirt. The Quality People section was full of super soft graphic tees ($15) in small and medium.
If you need beachy streetwear, check out the Warriors of Radness area. There's an entire rack of cool tees and tanks ($15) in medium to peruse, as well as an entire rack of shorts and swimwear. Along with the summer gear, you'll also find colorful pants ($30) and a few jackets that are price as marked.
In the middle of the room there's a table of men's OHW shoes (price as marked). Most of the styles were more on the boot side, but the cool colorways make this a size 9's heaven. We spotted a pair of beautiful burgundy leather desert boots ($80) that would make a great anytime shoe.
More men's clothing from General Assembly, Vanishing Elephant & Crate was being put out as we were leaving. The women's clothing was also being unpacked, and we spotted a cute top by Super Nat'l and a pair of navy blue patent leather Vanishing Elephant oxfords.
The runs this until 6pm today and ends tomorrow at Timothy Heenan Showroom at 247 Centre Street. When you arrive, take the elevator up to the sixth floor and walk down the hall until you the find the stairwell on the left. The showroom is at the top of the stairs.
