Went to Barneys in SF at lunch. Paul Smith suits under 400, Prada for around 550, that shiny Raf suit that SoCal has is 399 (I tried it on, looks better on him). I bought a Balenciaga suit too for 83% off. BoO shirts were under 100 bones and the suits were like 600. It was insane that they did a 3rd markdown before Xmas. Lots of Thom Brown and Ann D and Dolce. Most everything in the non-CoOp/tailored section was 75-80% I was there at 12:30, left at 1:15 and it was close to being picked clean by then. I left feeling bummed that we basically have no economy left, but at least I look good in a bread line.
