Barney's warehouse sale

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
When is it? And do you know when the secondary and tertirary markdowns occur? I need to restock my disposable dress shirt supply.

It's usually in the spring, I'll let you know for sure later if you're still interested.

Are you talking about this? If you are, it started yesterday. I think I might head out to it tonight after work.

Thanks for the link, I think I'll stop by this evening too. On a side note, maybe someone could explain this: I went to Off 5th in orange county looking for some dress shirts for cheap. I found a white dress shirt by zegna that was supposed to retail for $200. I almost bought it, but decided to try it on first. Immediately, I could tell something was wrong, the material was not as fine at all, (it was thick and unrefined). I inspected the buttons, they were not double thick, nor were they mother of pearl (the were plastic.). I was shocked. I've heard that some companies make things of lesser quality for the sole purpose of being sold in outlet stores, but I thought this bordered on being fraud. Maybe there is a reasonable explaination...?

Zegna has LOTS of different lines. Sport, Soft, Napoli, etc. so the shirt you tried on was likely from a lower end Zegna line. Could have also been a sample or custom one off, who knows.

I have to agree with Renault here. I've seen a lot of inferior Zegna shirts (with the regular Zegna label, no soft, sport, or any such diffusion line) being sold at Off Fifth stores. Sadly I found this out firsthand made the mistake of blowing a good chunk of money (well, considering the crappiness of the shirt) on one to find out (I needed a plain white shirt asap and was told I was not allowed to try it on and that I couldn't return the shirt when I took it out of the packaging... it was folded up and packaged, not on a hanger). The worst part was that at the time I was inexperienced enough to assume that it was a quality shirt simply because of all the good things I had heard about Zegna; then I bought a Zegna shirt on sale at a real Sak's and it had thick buttons and soft fabric that didn't feel like tissue paper. FYI the nice mainline Zegna shirts I see at Sak's and Neiman's are all made in Spain; the crappy one was made in Italy.

Update: I went to the barney's sale last night. They mostly sold "Barneys" brand stuff, but I was surprised how good the selection was. Furthermore, things were organized by size (for the most part), so it wasn't too hard to navigate. I ended up getting 4 barneys dress shirts (50% off) and a pair of armani slacks (70% off). The dress shirts weren't anything special [double-stitched, plastic buttons] but good staples at a reasonable price. If you're in the neighborhood, I'd suggest you take a look. Lots of suits, outerwear, slacks, and shirts. Relatively few shoes and ties.

Renault- How was the jean selection? Or was that non-existant? Let me know. Thanks. Cheers, LDawg

Jean selection was pretty sparse, maybe one row or so. Very little in the most common sizes...

Renault78law - Where are the Off 5th and Barney's sales in Orange County?
post #11 of 12
Off 5th is at The Block, I think the city is Anahiem. The Barney's sale is over, and I believe it was only in LA.

FYI, the city is Orange.
