tough call, as I have yet to hit the jackpot IMO at any store. I've gotten plenty of GOOD deals thru Last Call, Off Saks, Filene's, etc. but nothing amazing- nothing like what many folks here have gotten. Of course, I live hours from these places so I only get to check them out a couple times a year and can rarely plan them around known 'good' shipments of items. My ranking, from experience: NM: best selection of desirable items I've seen on clearance- no outright steals but compelling prices overall. If you can hit a well stocked NM on its 1st day of LC presale, you're loving life. I don't live anywhere near a Last Call unfortunately. Saks: the store itself, during its semiannual clearance, is better than any Off Saks I've ever seen. Again, not rock bottom prices but very good prices, and usually a good selection of items/sizes. Filene's: great prices, decent at best selection of items and sizes. High odds for steals though, if you can wade thru all the junk. The Mazza Gallerie store in DC is the only one I've been to. Off Saks: extremely hit or miss. I've seen Borrelli, Kiton dress shirts for $120, and then I've gone 4 visits in a row and not seen anything decent at all. Nordstrom Rack: excellent prices, crap selection- at least the ones I have been to. Again, a pretty high potential for steals. You need to get lucky and hit them on a day they put a lot out, as they get picked over quickly. Have seen some nice ones here, cashmere Loro Piana sportcoat for <200, Ferragamo/To Boot/AE for $125, etc.
