Consignment/thrift shopping in DC is unfortunately limited by the sartorial shortcomings of its male residents. Â That said, I have had good luck at the following places: Second Chance (7702 Woodmont Avenue, corner of Woodmont and Old Georgetown Road): Â The highest-end merchandise of any consignment store that I have visited (Armani, Hugo Boss). Â I bought a burgundy smoking jacket in good condition for $28 and a formal vest and unhemmed tuxedo slacks for around $80. Act II (4931 Cordell Avenue): Â A notch below Second Chance, but you will clean up here if you happen to be a 40S, as there are several Oxxford suits in that size. Â I bought an Oxxford two-button navy blazer that looked like it had rarely, if ever, been worn (lapel button was still sealed) for $32. Both places are a short walk from the Bethesda metro station on the Red Line (walk up Old Georgetown Road). Â As with all consignment stores, selection depends on when the store receives merchandise, so it pays to visit frequently.
