Black Friday - Did clothing retailers give up this year? - Page 4

post #46 of 69
Heh, yeah. Go figure. The only time CT merch. isn't marked 50% is during these "sales".

They're not fooling anyone who's visited the website more than a few times.

The ironies of life are such, my friend.

If a parking lot becomes full, but no one is there to see it, does it make a sound? confused.gif

I've been seeing VinnyMac's post more and more, and many of his posts strongly suggest some time of frustration... What's up dude?

Has anyone seen anything different from what I'm seeing?

To be fair, most of us here are into more "respectable" and high-end fashion lines, which often don't play the Black Friday/"sales" angle up very much because their clientele doesn't necessarily need it. I mean, when was the last time you saw well-dressed gentlemen lining up at 12AM and trampling over each other get "bargains" on Black Friday? It's just not consistent with these brands.

There's no frustration here...sorry if it comes off that way bro'. Sometimes, it's hard to transmit the lawlz through a keyboard.

Haha, but they will stalk out the B+S for any deal they can find...Rarely do people here buy things at full price.

Nothing wrong with that.

Brooks Brothers had 50% off everything from 12am to 3am then 40% off after that. All the other places had the same old weekend sale...

I didn't leave my hotel to go shopping until 1. p.m.; the stores I planned to visit didn't have door busters or sales at all. I had a very relaxing morning followed by a leisurely afternoon of shopping. satisfied.gif

After trying to go to a few sales a couple years back (for electronics), I realized the time and frustration is simply not worth the savings. I figure at most, I'll save $100-200 which isn't really worth the stress and hours in line. For clothing, I've actually found the online sales are often better than the in-store sales, particularly the Mr. Porter sales and when Yoox has their clearances.

I went to Off Fifth, which the one here has turned into an absolute dump. There was one item in the entire store that I saw that wasn't made for the outlet.

Then I wandered over to Neiman Marcus, and I was one of the few people in the store, but didn't even get a hello from an associate while eyeballing some Sauelsohn suits and a fantastic Cucinelli cashmere overcoat. Perhaps that's the reason they're closing their doors next year.

What's a good realistic price for a zegna mainline suit anyway?

Personally, I'm generally annoyed when people ask me stuff while I'm browsing. If I need help, I'll ask for it. I can't imagine someone who needs help just aimlessly walking around the store waiting for someone to approach them. I prefer reserved sales people over aggressive ones - especially in retail clothing environment. Now, if you're talking about a car dealership, that's different. I can only go so far without the help of a salesman at a car dealership, but when I'm shopping for clothes I find it much more inviting when I'm not bothered.

Off Saks has them 50% off (or buy 1 get 1 free) all the time. I can't remember the exact pricing, but I think you'd be looking at 700-800 during that sale.
