    Are these usually worth going to?
    Is it usually busy and crowded with crazy people?

    I went to two of them last year. The first one was really good. I got a ton of nice stuff for really cheap. The second one wasn't as good. It was mostly junk. I think it's still worth to check it out. It's not really crowded.

    Did you go when it just started or toward the end of the sale?

    I have never heard of anyone getting anything worth wearing from the Barneys warehouse sale.

    You might find a random decent basic, but it will probably be in size 56.

    Weren't there Quoddys and Yuketens at ~$80? Some Hickey Freeman suits at $200? Or I am mixing up sales?

    Either way these sales are usually pretty bad since it's everything that is left over. You might get lucky though if somebody returned something during the end of the sale and it didn't get sold after.

    As the last sale I say Hickey suits for $200, Drakes ties for $35 and a pair of Levis 501XX 1947 for $60.

    Maybe huge by SW/D standards, but they had plenty of nice suits in the 40-42 range, 34w jeans, and the tie bught was a solid grenadine.

    from a yelp review:

    "For days now the store shelves have been fairly bare. Now today, with almost everything 75% off of the already discounted prices, the employees began to bring out everything they were stashing in the back for their friends right in front of us. My wife and I were shocked at excess going on. Stacks and stacks of Louboutin and Prada shoes, all top shelf designer shoes and clothing were being brought from the bowls out to their friends in all the popular sizes and piled right into their Escalades and Range Rovers (need I say more) in front of the store. I mean they paid for them.., but they hid all this stuff until the final 75% off days instead of letting the rest of their clientele get a crack at it. I know this is done all the time in retail. Advance sale notice...etc... But this was so brazen and with such attitude it was just vile.
    My wife was fuming as all of her shoe sizes were gone from the shelves for days and here it all comes out to their friends."
