Just shopped in the brand new Filenes Basement and DSW in Union Square. I have no previous experience in either store anywhere. Filenes Basement seemed OK - I did pick up a couple of Missoni dress shirts relatively inexpensively. I was impressed by the selection of shoes at DSW. Lots of Prada, Cole-Haan, Fratelli-Rosetti, etc. Prices were good although not rock bottom. I had just purchased a pair of Bruno Magli loafers at Off 5th for $159 which they had at DSW for $179 but the selection and completeness of sizes was strong. Lots of boots too. I will check out both again as they are only a stroll from my apartment.
