Saks Friends and Family October 16th - October 19th, in the past the discount is usually set at 20%, but the past spring, the Friends and Family discount was set at 25%. I am betting the discount will stay at 25% this time around.

Neiman Marcus Private Sale: No date has been set yet, but the sales associates in BH believe it will take place the first week of November.

Some advice on shopping: Stick with "Basic Items" that normally don't go on sale at the end of the season. In Ralph Lauren world, it is called BSR. You don't want to buy a coat or leather jacket at these events, 3 months later, you see the same jacket at the clearance rack for 60% - 70% off.

I brought Edward Green Chelsea, Dover and Berkeley at the Saks's F&F. I brought my Loro Piana Horsey Jacket at Neiman's private sale. This time around, I might purchase some John Lobb shoes at Neiman. All these are stable items these stores carry throughout the year.

Do I need to befriend a Saks SA? I have my eye on a jacket there I'd love to save some bucks on.

do you have to have some kind of coupon for Saks F&F or do you get the discount if you happen to shop in the store on those dates? Thanks...

Any sales associate will be more than glad to give you the discount when you ask for it.

Any item in the store including sale item (if you can find any). But F&F has its usual exclusion: LV, Kiton, Loro Piana...

Was at Saks in NYC today. They have 30% off on a number of things. Nothing too spectacular, but some Polo suits and trousers, Corneliani suits and sportcoats, Incotex, some decent ties and a few shoes (mostly not so great, though there were some Tramezzas that were marked down).

The SAs said the sale runs through Sunday.

This is the actual coupon that you could print and go shopping with at the store.
