Trying to get your hands on discounted Theory apparel for your whole mixed-gendered crew this week? You're going to need to make two stops. The contemporary brand is once again splitting up its men's and women's apparel into different sample sales, but in this season, they've got overlapping dates.
First up is the women's sale in the Garment District starting tomorrow (see the when and where details on both of these sales in the Dealfeeds below). It's been a while since women had their own sample sale here — there was one in July with Helmut Lang, and another back in June that combined menswear. At the latter, plenty of womenswear prices hit right under the $100 mark, like $89 blouses and $99 sweaters, skirts, and shorts, but since this sale promises to focus on fall merchandise, expect lots of jackets and outerwear with higher price tags (and probably some damages, too).
And with the men's sale starting on Wednesday morning in Chelsea Market, we can expect up to 60% off retail prices recent collections, plus some samples thrown in the mix. We can compare prices to either that same June sale, where dress pants were $99 and blazers were $209 (from $645), but it's likely that we can expect higher prices out of this venue. Let us know if you're hitting up either or both of these events in the comments section below.
