In fact, you can't call the season finished if there are still THEORY and HELMUT LANG sales on the calendar, and it just so happens that starting today, Tuesday, the sibling brands will be holding their seasonal joint sample and irregular sale event through Friday at Clothingline in the Garment District. Be warned that everything in the sale is sold "as is", and a full size range of anything may not be available, but, seasoned shoppers will tell you that these are the places where some of the biggest bargains can be found.
