12 (Male!) Philly Mag Editors Shop the Barneys Warehouse Clearance Sale — and Here Are Their Picks

We sent the men of Philly Mag shopping.

Yesterday I sent the women of Philly Mag shopping. Each was tasked with checking out the Barneys Warehouse Clearance sale online and choosing her favorite thing. (I ended up buying mine, and our Wedding editor pulled the trigger on four items). Today, thanks to the outcry of stylish male readers, it’s the men’s turn.

Some bristled at the challenge (one editor, cough, Jason Sheehan—the resident foodie of the group—proclaimed that he’d wear nothing on the site. Even the models made him angry), while others showed off their shopping prowess. Here are the 10 top men’s picks of the sale. And yes, in the end, even grouchy Jason found something to love.

Rich Rys, Deputy Editor

Barneys New York plain-tow lace-up boots, $123.60 (from $680). Buy them here.

“I’m overdue to replace my black boots, and these are exactly what I’m looking for: simple, rugged, ready to take on whatever Mother Nature still has in store this winter.”



Tom McGrath, Editor in Chief

Barneys New York Britain Billfold, $47.60 (from $240). Buy it here.

“Does anyone carry cash anymore? Still, it’s nice to have a classic billfold to store your debit card in.”




Patrick Kerkstra, Deputy Editor

Boglioli windowpane plaid two-button sport coat, $191.60 (from $1,195). Buy it here.

“It’s distinctive without being flashy.”




Simon van Zuylen-Wood, Writer-at-Large

Incotex Chinolino trouser, $55.60, (from $340). Buy them here.

“Guys who stick mainly to jeans and cords (or if you’re me, basically just jeans) begin to panic about what to wear on our legs when the weather gets warmer. Especially since a lot of the linen and khaki offerings suffer from terminal unhipness. Not these trousers.”



Michael Wilson, Design Director

Barneys New York wingtip lace-up boots, $119.60 (from $660). Buy them here.

“Because boots are better than shoes.”







Brian Howard, Deputy Editor (News)

Fioroni pin dot jersey zip cardigan, $127.60 (from $795). Buy it here.

“In an alternate universe, one in which I buy $300 silk and cashmere sweaters, I’d buy this one, because I love sweaters that can double as jackets.” (Editor’s Note: With the extra 60 percent off, it’s actually much less than $300!)



Art Etchells, Senior Editor

Vince reverse-seam Henley, $47.60 (from $225). Buy it here.

“Perfect for a casual weekend, especially when I’m away and don’t want to have to bust out the hotel iron.”




Tim Haas, Digital Editorial Director

Barneys New York wingtip balmorals, $67.60 (from $378). Buy them here.

“Because I’ve always wanted shoes that could, in a pinch, double as a cribbage board.”



Dan McQuade, Contributing Editor

Boglioli Hampton two-button sport coat, $271.60 (from $1,695). Buy it here.

“One thing I learned from attending Catholic prep school is how to appreciate a good blazer. I wouldn’t have been able to get away with this color sportcoat at Holy Ghost, but in the real world, I can grow my hair long and wear whatever color blazer I want! Also, in my mind I’m as skinny as this model.”


Josh Middleton, Associate Editor

Band Of Outsiders corduroy pants, $55.60 (from $455). Buy them here.

“I’ve been looking for a well-made pair of cords since GQ told me I should buy a corduroy suit last fall. Not sure I’m ready for the full monty, but these pants would be a nice start. I like that the button is hidden on the waistband so I don’t have to wear a belt, and the burgundy color will add a nice pop to my wardrobe, which could always use some extra color. Come to think of it, that shirt’s pretty nice, too.”

Joel Mathis, Associate Editor

Vince elbow-patch hooded sweater, $43.60 (from $225). Buy it here.

“Love the elbow-patch hooded sweater — I’m always looking for clothing that says “professorial yet down with the kids,” and this may be the closest thing I’ve ever seen to fulfilling the ideal. If only it were tweedier …”



Jason Sheehan, Food Editor

Barneys New York two-button sportcoat, $103.60 (from $395). Buy it here.

“I like it because it’s simple, black, understated, black, unadorned by nonsense, black, and would match well with pretty much everything I own — a wardrobe limited to solid-color button-down dress shirts, blue jeans of varying hues, one belt (black) and a variety of tee shirts with bad words or nerd references on them.”
