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.
