    Their MTM suits are half-canvassed so I would assume their RTW sports coats are half-canvassed at best but still may be a good value.

    Went there today, honestly not very impressed. They have some nice suits but the selection is not that big and you have to be in luck to find your size. Other garments (coats, jackets, shirts, shoes, etc) are average at best, and most are of their own brands. Price is not that good either, C21's regular price is better. Maybe they will have deeper discount toward the end, but I am not sure I am going back.

    Was it crowded? I may take a peek after work but don't like dealing with crowded stores.

    It was ok when I was there, but it was 9 in the morning, so I don't know what it's gonna like during peek time. They say 'NO FIST FIGHT' on the wall.

    It was actually crowded about an hour ago. Nothing in there worth buying and it was kind of disorganized.
    Women were going crazy over some stuff though.

    Well...fuck them for all I care?
    You wanna throw money at corporate you go right ahead.
    I'm a cheap ass New Yorker.

    now....i was there earlier tonight for about an hour and half.
    It's rather odd - shabby basement surrounding, most people there just don't look like
    They can afford the stuff there.
    the prices just don't reflect that I.e. warehouse SALE.
    so so far this "sale" is a teaser , a fucking joke for morons.
    (yes if you buy a shirt for $80 in this bazaar you're a moron)

    Maybe I will go back few days later when the real sale is on.

    I was there earlier tonite (Friday 7 ~8) . By ny standard not too crowded. There were like
    8 or 10 cashiers but hardly anyone has any cashiering to do. Which I think actually I'm pretty certain is because of the shitty prices. And looks like they have stuff from YEARS AGO, all dusty and old looking still at 50% of the insane original hipster prices , no wonder they don't sell.

    Barneys were empty this afternoon. The sale is the worst I have ever seen. Have you been to Marshall's or FB? Then that is what it is like. 90% of shirts pants and suits are Barney's own. Shirts Barney's/Piatelli 99.00, Pants 170.00/250.00-25%. Outerwear is dusty and old unsold crap from the last 9 years. Shoes are 90% Barney's own lable, with C&J , Paul Smith, Timberland sprinkled in weird styles.
    I was interetsed in suits and saw Barneys 599, Piatelli 599/699 and few Canali at 899/1000+

    Stay away, BWH is a ridiculous waste of time.

    Overall, the sale has been blah. I won't complain. I went 1st thing on the first day and grabbed some C&J handgrade and pair of RLBL trousers. I wanted a few other things but prices were still way too high.

    Saw Drakes Cashmere for $100~. Not sure if they're still around but the 25% off would make it $75.... Decent deal.... I personally wouldn't get it till it i hits $40
