DC Shopping Update - Page 6

post #76 of 87
I went to Filene's on Conn. Ave today. In addition to the suit sale, with dozens of Oxxford and HF suits, they also have one large rack of Mario's and Louis Boston, as well as another rack with a variety of D&G, Prada, plus I noticed some random Borrelli and Luciano Barbera thrown in. Seriously, there was a surprising amount of good stuff. Lots of Borrelli shirts and L-B slacks, as well as Incotex. On the 1st level, there are some good deals on Robert Talbott belts for $35 (the same ones I've seen elsewhere for $80+).

I checked out the DC-area store on Saturday and picked up a Canali Navy microweave Wool suit for $449 and Armani and Prochownick ties at $42 a piece. I ended up passing on a few pairs of Zanella pants that were running between $89 - $109 and had to restrain myself from getting another suit. They had a large selection of merchandise that they were advertising from Bloomingdales and Mansouri, a fine clothing store up in NY. I saw Borrelli, Belvest, Canali, Paul Smith, Zegna (Sport and Ermenegildo) suits. They also had Etro, Varvatos, Hugo, Theory, and plenty of other high-end merchandise. First visit to either C-mart location, and I left pleased.

Stopped by Filene's at Conn Ave to pick up the Gibbons I bought the other day and someone dropped a Radcliff in a grey/brown pinstripe super 150 so I picked that up. I have to stay away from that place for a while.

Anybody have any info on the new Filene's Basement going in at Tyson's Corner? Given the location, I'm thinking that thing has potential!

First-time poster, long-time lurker...

Had a day off and stopped by the new C-mart that was mentioned earlier in the thread (in Largo). To be honest, I didn't expect much, judging by the location (previously a sam's club, I believe). I first stopped by the shoes, and my assumptions were correct. I was unimpressed, however, I felt I should give the rest of the store a try instead of wasting a trip (since the nearby marshalls didnt have much to speak of either). I proceeded on to the suits, and I have to say, I was completely surprised...at the time, this location has a decent selection of etro, canali, zegna and belvest suits <$700, and a few varvatos and paul smith as well. I was about to break down and buy a great-looking paul smith grey/blue windowpane 2-button for a little over $400, but unfortunately I didnt want to spend the money since I know so little about the brand. If anyone is familiar with his merchandise, a little insight would be greatly appreciated. If it seems like a good deal, I may be schlepping down to largo after work one night this week in hopes that it is still there.

Furthermore, what is everyone's opinion on etro and varvatos dress shirts(they seemed to have a decent selection of these as well)? I'm new(ish) to the professional job market and attempting to make the leap from the old college kid standbys...j crew, RL, etc. I like to think I already dress better than most men my age...but to be honest, I want to dress MUCH better than anyone my age. I guess I'm finally opening up to my narcissistic side.

(Apologies for the long-winded post, for anyone who still may be reading.)

A Charles Tyrwhitt store is coming to the new building at Connecticut and K, setting up a confrontation with Thomas Pink across the street.

The Goodwill behind White Flint is quivering with anticipation!

Now, I'll have to add additional Montgomery County stops to my rotation. plain.gif

I used to clean up at that place. That is where I found a full Oxxford wardrobe including 3 suits and 4 sport coats all made for the same dude in my size. Also found several Marinella ties there. Haven't been in years since I moved away though.
