I visited Barney's today at the Santa Monica airport. I don't have any knowledge of the shoes. Pretty much everything was 50%. I was talking to a sales associate, and he gave me several insights. Obviously, since the sale is only a week, and started last thursday, you get better selection at the beginning. But, when they first come in, that's the same sales price they were at the store when they were marking down the price. There's no extra discount when it reaches the warehouse. IMHO, you might as well as buy it if you see it at the store. The one thing I really didn't like about the sale was that there were no changing rooms, and the lighting was really poor. And, there were no real full length mirrors. So, I was considering buying their suits, but it was kinda hard to see how well it fit me, esp in the back. However, by the end of the week, if things are going slow, then they might further reduce prices even more. So, you might have to take a chance and wait for further price reductions.
