Barneys Warehouse Sale

— Wed, 18th August 2010 —

Barneys Warehouse Sale starts tomorrow morning, 8/19, at 8 a.m. sharp — though, as we recently found out, few of you care about Day 1, or BWS at all. If you are planning an early attack, remember to prepare a wish list beforehand, stick to your sizing sections, and remember that prices drop precipitously over the course of the two-week sale.

  1. Ok so I went around 2pm. There was no line and inside was not very crowded.

    I took a quick look through the suits. Same filler brands (Piatello, Hickey Freeman, etc.) and not much else stood out.

    Wandering to the left there was a designer section with lots (30+) of Band of Outsider suits for $1000. Outside of a large section for Armani and Ralph Lauren Black Label (no suits or sportscoats to be seen), there were tiny sections for brands like Raf Simons, Margiela, Ervell, Dries, Prada and so forth.

    Wandering over to the shoes I actually saw a better selection and quality than usual. Prices still high but people were tearing through this section with the most fervor.

    Didn’t even bother with the mounds of jeans and sweaters. Most depressing section as always at this sale.

    There was a long rack of leather jackets that was next to the casual shirts. Steven Alan shirts were roughly $90 so that gives you an idea of the price points (can buy current season Steven Alan for that price using a coupon).

    Walked out with nothing. I saw some nice shirts that I might return for when the price drops to around $50 or so.
