    I wanted to make a comprehensive list for the discount places to get the best price on certain suits. I'll start:

    Regular line Corneliani: Filene's- $799 Retail, can be had at $599 on a suit sale day.
    Ermenegildo Zegna Trofeo fabric: Filene's- $599 Retail, can be had at $449 at a suit sale

    Hickey Freeman Collection (black label) $440 at NM Last Call. Actually bought one for $550, and did not receive the advertised 20% discount. Brought my receipt to the store a few days later and rec'd the $110 discount. I was thrilled to have paid $550. Found money is good.

    At Saks Outlet in Potomac Mills, VA, there were Coreliani for around $700 and one Oxxford in 44L (that I purchased, then returned; I haven't checked other sizes, obviously) for around $600. You can get a coupon from the courtesy desk for any one item at the Saks outlet 25% off, which means that an Oxxford there cost $450. The selection isn't the best, but if there are things that you fancy, it's a decent deal.

    Of recent suits I've seen: Frank Stella NYC has specials every so often -- I haven't dropped by in ages -- but they used to have Haspels, etc -- and they still advertise in the NYT. Brooks has the Brooksease Southwicks for about $250 in tan and olive on the clearance section of their site.

    Should have snagged that. Does anyone know what you can get Canali suits for at the Filenes, Off 5ths, etc.?

    Bought a Trend Corneliani at Marshalls for $90 once. At Filene's Basement, once saw a medium gray Borrelli for under $300. Should've flipped it. It was a 42R or something popular too.
