post #35371 of 37245

Ugh, Barneys. I don't have time to check their site, especially for a bunch of crap that is a bit too fashion forward, usually damaged and non-returnable. Sites like Eastdane, the corner, farfetch (to a degree - their shipping cost sucks) and others are great. Yoox is still the best. Probably worked out for the best that I missed the Barney's clearance sale. I'd probably be sitting here today with $500 of stuff that doesn't fit and can't be returned. Rag and Bone is one of the worst, for example. Their stuff fits awful and for whatever reason I still try buy it from time to time. My 40 fitting usually requires buying a 42 or 44 jacket and then the rest of the proportions are off. Anyway. Voicing some frustration about those Zanone polos. That's probably the greatest miss of the Barney's sale for me.

That is one of the items (they had many Zanone items on the warehouse site) I had been eyeing, but with prices of $125 so 30% off and 40% and even 50% off would have made them $60-$70, which is already ridiculously low. To purchase one for $27.00 would mean that it was 90% off. Don't know about that. Something is not adding up. Barney's is a bit of a joke anyway, so I am not surprised by their poor handling of things.

The Eastdane sale was pretty interesting. They also carry a few good brands like Herno and Zanone. You can get JBrand jeans for $60.00, which is a steal. Yoox has been great recently. Had a good year with some Yoox buys so far. Got a Dunhill wallet (with the Dunhill box and all) for $50.00. 


Still aggravated by the whole Barney's New York thing, that I am reading on here. Grumble grumble grumble....



One Zanone sweater, two zanone long sleeve polos, all under $30 each. 

 

It made checking this thread 5x a day all worth it.

I'm guessing you're the guy who bought $500 worth of Rag and Bone stuff that doesn't fit and can't be returned..

2. Sale is over. It was 75% off clearance. You should be checking it more often if you really wanted something. It lasted nearly a week

He might be on to something. I browsed the sale during the extra 75% clearance, but a lot of the discussed items at insanely cheap prices were showing as much higher to me outside the states.

..and as I write this, Yoox sends another 15% off code. It's an efficent way of doing things. Checking this site 5 times a day, not so much.

Exactly. And I am in NYC, and I was on the site around this time last week and saw none of what the people on here are talking about. It's very strange.

Were you in the clearance section?

 

For some reason when I left the clearance section, prices seemed different.

Yes. I was on the Barney's warehouse site and also browsed their "clearance" section. None of the items you speak of were in there and now that I think of it, there were a few items I previously viewed that weren't on the site at all. I find it highly unlikely that, for example, the black Zanone polo I was eyeing and available in 48,50,52,54 and appeared to have multiple in certain sizes, sold out in one day after being on the site for 6 months. There was also an Aspesi shirt that wasn't on the site last week, but today it's there, back at full price (well, full price for the warehouse site).

sigh. you keep bashing the site and then complain about missing stuff

at 75% off the marked down prices, stuff sold out very quickly. move on, better luck next time

Not all their polos were in the "clearance" section. Only blue & black.

Thanks for the heads-up. Skipped the boat shoes, bought a Buffalo Bisons cap for my brother. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

If I recall the prices in clearance showed the initial savings 30 -50% off or whatever it was then had a 75% additional savings. That price wasn't shown until you put it in the cart. Not sure if this helps

You really didn't miss anything depending on your tastes.  I was in very early and simply passed on it all.  Very few one-offs like leather gloves.  Brics luggage I guess, but I'd rather just get something nicer and pay more.
