I don't think that follows as Corneliani is sharply discounted online and I have seen some of their suits at my neighborhood Marshall's in the $300-400 price range (regular line, not trend)
Perhaps my comments should be confined to the DC market then. Â As far as I know, our Marshall's do not sell Corneliani. Â The Filene's Basements sell Canalis for $900. Â I think a Corneliani selling for $800 is comparable to a Canali selling for $900 -- maybe even preferable if you like Corneliani's silhouette more. Â I would agree that an Oxxford selling for $1K is a better deal than either those two if you've got the cash. I don't know if the Cornelianis being sold online are comparable to the Cornelianis being sold in Filene's Basement, so I can't comment on that part of your statement.
