At this Theory sample sale there are discounts of up to 70% on men’s shirts, pants, jackets, and accessories. Honestly these Theory sales are a dime a dozen and are happening pretty often. While there were some nice options, the prices make this sale a no-go for me. Unless you’re particularly jonesing for boring work clothes you can find at better prices, spare yourself. Also, I may or may not have found some pieces with actual holes in them—and not in a cute, distressed way—in a ripped, ruined way.
As is the typical case with 260, the first day of the sale was crowded (even with the huge showroom) and overpriced. Lots of the stock was well over $200 and there were long lines for checking out.
Some of the best deals of the sale (so far) were definitely found in the accessories section. Ties were $39, hats were also $39, and belts $29.
There was tons of merchandise and everything was hung up and divided neatly on hangers. If you need some refreshing for your basics, wait until the last day for further discounts. Beware that this is not a sale that’s worth going out of your way for, folks.
I give this one a 3/10 for underwhelming merchandise and even more underwhelming discounts.
Cash and credit card accepted. All sales are final.
