From an email sent in to the Racked Inbox last night: "Was at the Barneys sale today and was told by an employee that first markdowns on shoes, etc. happen tomorrow. Which is about time because—regardless of what they say about putting new stuff out every day—that shoe section is majorly picked over. Unless you're a size 5 or 11." [RackedWire Inbox]
