    I've made similar suggestions to the guys at the NYC store when I was last there. The website is horrendous and makes me not want to buy anything from them.

    But SQ, if you visited the SF location you could get a workout while climbing 234234234 stairs to get to the men's floor... and THEN be disappointed.

    Really though, their website is inexcusable.

    lol. yah. what was i thinking.


    i will visit that one when i come up there in the next month or so. are the people there cool? the ones in seattle are great. when i was there, i asked one of their employees about other good clothing stores in the area and the guy wrote down a list of 5 other stores with their addresses and a good sales person there. thats pretty awesome when you think about it.

    Between online shopping and other stores, I haven't been in since mid summer. The staff have always been nice enough, although I haven't really engaged in any extended conversations. Inventory probably similar to LA, style wise.

    Don't go to Barneys SF too often since I mostly buy online as well but I remember there was one guy that really cool. Forget his name though, was tall and wears glasses.

    Barneys is still good for checking out fragrances though.

    Surely this world famous US department store has lifts and escalators?

    There is an elevator.

    On a unrelated note, your constant posts bemoaning and referencing your current location are pretty annoying.

    :lurk:

    This whole thread seems to be full of unhappy people bemoaning their location and Barneys New York.

    Check out the Barney's in Scottsdale. I enjoy it more than the flagship store.

    you don't get it. barneys isn't only serving you. there's little demand for outrageous clothes in LA. if they sell lots of crazy shit there they will fail.

    Well I think you are wrong. Otherwise there wouldn't be two maxfield stores, hlorenzo, lanvin with full men's runway collection, dior homme and countless other stores that sell "crazy shit"

    Also, it appears Barney's does care about what I have to say because the vice president of customer service is calling me today.
