The Connecticut Avenue Filene's (best one in the area) is going out of business. 10-30% off right now. I'm not biting until they reach 50% off.

Its 50% now. I bit on a suit I believe its a HSM Gold Trumpeter (check my other post if you know)

 

Merry Christmas

any good suits here worth checking out?
post #484 of 525
I picked up a 3-piece HSM, grey pinstripe at the Mazza Filenes. It'll need some tailoring of course, but at the price (less than $250) I couldn't pass it up.

Otherwise the place was filled with crap, imo.

Gents there is a navy Corneliani at the Pentagon city marshalls for $429 red tagged clearance. Fully canvassed, size 52EU so 42R US. It comes with one of those plastic rain covers thingys you get when you buy a new suit. I would have copped, but I have 3-4 navy suits already. Very nice. Maybe some very minor stripes or subtle windowpane?

Also saw many CG (or CC?) by Corneliani line (diffusion?) suits. They were all clearance priced @ $329 or so. I believe these were fused and were ok, but not as great a quality as the navy Corneliani. This marshalls also carried some CK Collection suits, but I can't remember if they were clearanced. As I got home I remembered that CK Collection is their high line. I didn't feel the CK collections, but I don't think they're canvassed.

Saw a Coppley SC as well as a Samuelsohn SC that looked good. Finally, there were some BB suits that seemed to come from a SAKS or NM judging by their original tag.

There was a red Valentino thin tie that was clearance @ $69.

The Nordsrom rack across the way had crap. They were clearancing some "Robert Talbott" fused suits @ $450. Ha!

Self righteous necro, gents. I happen to be travelling through the DC area later this week and was wondering if there were any tips.

The only things I know about are the Woodbridge Outlet and maybe one of the downtown Filenes (would one be better than the other or should I make a point of seeing both?). Anything else?

Thanks, I didn't realize. They really should take down their "store locations" page.

It has to be, just has to be better than Orlando, FL. I'm poking my head in on a NM Last Call or two, hoping they might have better shipments than what we get. Who knows, maybe I'll get lucky.

But, wow, nothing else? Really, in DC? I thought with all the mid-timer bureaucrats there'd be shopping aplenty...

NM last call and Nordies Rack may net you a good find. There's some good stuff but you have to pay retail!

What are you looking for, exactly? There's some decent stuff here.

In Georgetown, there's a solid RL Polo store (with RRL), Rugby as well, a nice Brooks Brothers, a new Suit Supply, a Streets (HSM shop), a Jack Spade, and a Barney's co-op (I think the co-op is still there; the chevy chase location closed), a Barbour store. Can it compete with NY? No.

There's a few men's contemporary (so, no suits) shops on 14th st--rue 14 and federal, for your red wings and stussys and filsons etc.; a stussy shop/commonwealth streetwear just south of adams morgan. And decent vintage at Dr K on U street.

+1. DC shopping isn't as bad as others have described. Also, J.Press if you're feeling trad. Haven't been to Suit Supply yet, but I'm itching to go.

You just hit the nail on the head: I've been to a couple of RL stores but none with RRL, would love to check it out first hand. Plus, I had given up on Suit Supply because of the lack of consistency in comments from people about fit (yes, I could buy and return a bunch, but just never got up the gumption to do it) - stopping in a trying a few jackets on might renew might interest. And a Barbour store sounds cool too (I've got a jacket from them online, but never seen a store in person)

Very cool, thanks for the tips!

J Press, another company I've only ever seen online and I'd love to take a peek for real. Thanks!
