OK, since I've benefited from past 'public service' announcements around sales, here goes: The Filene's on Conn Ave has a large selection third-markdown Avon Celli sweaters. Most are in size 50 or smaller (US Medium or so). They are $129 each (down from $245 Filene's price, and $600+ retail) and are in a variety of fabrics, including a selection in 100% camel - I couldn't resist and grabbed one of those. The Avon Celli is mixed in with Zegna on the 'recently discounted' rack towards the middle of the 2nd floor. Also, there was a gorgeous 40R Malo wool sportcoat with patch pockets in a light tan. It was marked at $299, was quarter lined and looked like it was very well-made, with nice clean visible seams and what appeared to be 'double-face' construction (just two layers of cloth, no lining or very little lining - not sure if that impression is right, but that is how it felt). If you are interested, It was sitting in the 44 section of the sportcoats yesterday. It needs a good home. I almost bought it to flip on Ebay, I liked it so much. The only questionable aspect came from the plastic buttons. Really a shame that they didn't invest there. Finally, all suits are 25% off, including a decent selection of Oxxfords - if you sign up for a Filene's acc't you can get a NWT Oxxford for $675.
