Folks, if you're in DC and you like Borrelli, put down the phone and get over to a DC Filene's. Everything that still seemed a little pricey 2-3 months ago when all the Borrelli arrived is now 50% off. And, there's still a huge amount of it left - - the sale started yesterday apparently. There are dozens of Borrelli shirts, slacks, and shorts. I also saw a size 42R Borrelli suit. I was tempted to pull a Paul Stuart, but instead walked away with the following more limited haul of Borrelli: 2 pr. cotton shorts for $37.50 each. 1 shirt for $75 1 100% cashmere navy blue blazer for $745. (Still expensive (orig. retail was $3,400), but fit perfectly and was just too amazing to pass up) I very nearly bought another shirt and several pairs of slacks. All the wool slacks (original retail $390-495) are selling for $85. Cotton slacks are even less. On top of Borrelli, there's loads of Barney's label stuff going for next to nothing (think original Barney's price for shirt or sweater=$125; orig. Filene's price was $40; price now=$20.). I also saw some Lorenzini; Malo; Hickey-Freeman; Armani; Corneliani; lots of Canali suits; etc. There's also a new rack (new to me anyway) of "fashion" clothes -- loads of D&G and Versace Couture and Cavalli (with an few enticing Borrelli and other shirts, etc. mixed in for fun). This stuff is not yet further marked down, though one Borrelli shirt was so nice I nearly "bit." Finally, Filene's is having its suit event right now, so the 3 racks of Oxxford suits that are originally $999 are now 20% off of that (25% if you buy 3 suits).
