I report: the Ralph Lauren was stuffed with striped shirts (M + F), "faded" flannel shirts (M + F), cargo pants and shorts (M + F). Is it me or does the logo grow larger every month? I thought only teenage boys had growth spurts like that. I brought home a beautiful silk halter top in a classic multi-color paisley. Sadly the fit was off, so it went back. So did two pairs of lightweight chinos, beautifully tailored, but I'm between sizes and probably won't need them until next summer anyway. I grabbed a tee for Himself, almost invisible embroidered logo, and a great improvement on their standard men's tee IMO. The sleeves are a little shorter, and the neck, instead of the chokehold crew, is a very slight V. Exceptionally good price, too.
Hidden in the men's department I found a reversible cashmere scarf for me. Heh heh.

A lot of the merch at the Barney's outlet comes from their actual stores. For this reason, I can do quite well there, mainly on accessories that I would never even dare to look at at full price. For this reason, I did not enter the store, although I thought longingly of silk velvet scarves.
