I went shopping in Washington DC last weekend at the sales. At Neiman Marcus in Friendship Heights, an overbearing woman salesperson in the men's department was overly aggressive and committed one of the worst possible sartorial salesperson sins: she tried to sell me a suit that she knew didn't fit right. I am a 38R, this was a 40R and it was clearly too big in the shoulders, and too long. She tried to claim that because it was Paul Smith it fits smaller (I guess she thought I knew nothing about clothes) and that it looked great and that the tailor could touch up whatever. She then even brought over the tailor, a European man who could barely speak English, to try to play along with this game. This is inexcusable. I would never go back to that Neimans again just because of this woman. I got decent, but still not great service at the Saks store next to it. Total opposite of Neimans: where Neimans was too aggressive, I couldn't find anyone at Saks who wanted to help me. However, at Filenes the staff were very helpful. I got a new pair of PLRL Bucks for $80 and a Hugo Boss suit for $275 (I know, its fused, but who cares for that price.) Go Filenes!
