I agree. I haven't seen any good markdowns this season. Went in yesterday and did see the cords marked down but only to 49. They still seem really thin to me, especially for 50 bucks. Maybe I'm just used to the heavier cord material Levi uses, which to me seems like the standard. Plus they were out of my size in every color--what's up with that!?
The lambswool sweaters had come down slightly but not enough to pique my interest, especially considering most of them were rather plain. And I'm not sure why, but I don't dig the half-zip mock collars that seem to be filling the shelves this season.
I saw a few new things at full retail, including two new colors in the vintage fatigue pants. There was a grey and a khaki, which on a different day and in a different mood, I might have sprung for (at least one of them), but for whatever reason I just wasn't feeling it yesterday at 80 bucks a pair.
Overall, seemed like a lot of stuff that was different versions of what I already own.
On the other hand, IF I had seen the Fair Isle sweater or sweater vest, I would have jumped on that. My store isn't carrying them, for some reason. I might have to do an in-store phone order next time.
