The general consensus is that this winter's Barneys Warehouse Sale, which kicked off this morning, isn't the best one anyone's ever seen. But if you're dying to get your hands on marked-down Proenza and Rag & Bone—which is, after all, a very reasonable desire—then right now is the time to go. It's the golden hour: This morning's line has died down, and the after-work crowd has yet to arrive.
