Remember what happened during the Alexander Wang secret event? How could you forget. That crowd was like an angry mob of stampeding animals, thrashing about inside of a warehouse stuffed with elusive, free goods. 

The upcoming Helmut Lang, Theory and The News sample sales might not get that maney, but news of slashed prices and hefty amounts of stuff to slang have surfaced, and that'll most likely prompt some insane behavior from high-end label enthusiasts looking for deals. Consider bringing a method of defense before you pass the thresholds of these venues.
