Unbelievable haul in at the DC Filene's Basement stores. Connecticut Ave. has both Bergdorf Goodman and Domenico Vacca items. National Press has only Bergdorf. The stuff apparently came in yesterday. Domenico Vacca items: - Attolini suits for $999 (I saw at least a dozen). Marked down from $4700. These are the real deal. Sizes across the range -- from 38-46. Only 2 or 3 in wool; 8 or 10 in cotton/cashmere blend (including 3 or so in corduroy); and 3 or 4 in linen. - Attolini slacks for $149 (I saw only one -- it was my size too) - Domenico Vacca label suits for $899. Marked down from $3800. The one I got is tan, in 95/5 cotton/cashmere. - D-V label blazers. I saw at least one in 100% cashmere. - D-V label casual shirts for $69 (some silk; some cotton; some linen. All amazing). Marked down from $250+. - D-V label casual slacks. These looked to be made by two different makers -one looked clearly to be Incotex based on the interiors; the other I couldn't tell -- the labels looked like Attolini but there wasn't the same large amount of hand-work as on the Attolini label slacks). Note that all the D-V slacks were quite narrow - Borrelli-like. I tried on 5 or 6 pairs and came away with none. Marked down from $560 and $670. - D-V label casual jackets. Some linen; some that were what I'd call a "Mac" (like a raincoat); some leather. All priced at $299-500. Marked down from $1500+. - D-V label Bermuda shorts. These were awesome. Lots of handwork and amazing fabrics. Colorful wide-striped fabrics that reminded me of Turnbull & Asser. $69 Of the Vacca stuff, I came away with one Attolini suit and one Vacca suit, two Vacca shorts, plus the Attolini slacks. BERGDORF GOODMAN stuff: Suits: Not much. Some nice Zegna. A few Castagnia suits. Shirts: Here's where it's good. Loads and loads of Borrelli and Kiton -- both at $129.95. Lots of Charvet too for $99. Ties: Lots of Kiton and Garrick Anderson ties. Kiton are $69. Sweaters/casual shirts: Some really great Loro Piana shirts, including some LP rugby shirts that I nearly bought. Of the BG items, I only bought a Charvet polo shirt (for $49!).
