The Barneys Warehouse Sale began last Thursday, and Sample Sally reports that the first bout of markdowns has finally hit the merchandise. And the deals are definitely better for men. For women, sportswear (non-designer) and shoes have are now an additional 25% off, and blue-tag imperfects are 50% off. And for now, that's it.
Men's, on the other hand, has 25% off the following: outerwear/raincoats, casual outerwear, trousers, casual pants and denim (two categories that have always caused a few debates among shoppers and staff, so good thing they have the same discount), sportswear, and ties. Imperfects are 50% off, and luggage is 30% off. As usual, the real discounts won't happen until the final days, but since the sale will only last 10 days this time, the final days are near. Do note, however, that the above list is dated February 20th, meaning Barneys could slash those prices further any minute now.
