Do their private label suits made by Caruso ever go on deep discount? They're currently still over $1k on sale.

Also, how are they still in business? Neiman Marcus was packed today, while Barney's was completely empty.

Yes, but not until the warehouse sale. I've scored a Caruso-made suiit and sports jacket that way.

When is that? Is that in their main stores?

Everything gets 3 rounds of discounts.

1st round: 20-40% off most of the store. This happened yesterday.

2nd round: January. Another 33% off.

3rd round: changes every year but its another small percentage off.

Then comes warehouse sale.

Their sales are staggered. So half the store went on sale yesterday. The next half will be in two weeks for the first round. Then in beginning of January the first half gets its second round of cuts...etc etc.

Most things disappear the moment the 2nd round hits. The most sought after sizes are usually gone mid 1st round.

If you shop with one SA long enough she can pull strings to 'hold' things for you (aka bury back somewhere in the stock room) and sell it to you the day it hits that specific round of sale.
