    I just went by there to see the usual suspects. I asked the gentleman (Dwonn) working in the department but getting Oxxford. For some reason Filene's doesn't think they would sell there. He said he was trying to get them there and he may just pirate them off the Conn Ave store. He did ask for my name and number so he could call me if he can get them.

    The TJ Max in Crystal City (on route 1) has a number of Church's for between $80 and $150. Mostly these are summer shoes in Linen/Canvas and Suedes. Sizes ranged from UK 6 to UK 9. They also have a number of shoes from Car Shoe at around the same price. These all look to predate the Prada buy out.

    Is that at the Mazza store?

    Also, what have you found to be the better Filenes, conn. ave or mazza? I haven't been to either, but I don't have time to go between the two.

    I believe the pre-sale starts this Friday, the 26th, and next Wednesday is the start of the "actual" sale and the first day you can pick things up from the pre-sale.

    It was pretty barren in the Chevy Chase co-op last night, but the deals that are left are ridiculous. I picked up a Steven Alan shirt for $30, and some Barney's label chinos for $20. They had some Paul Smith scarves left from $20-something to $40-something after the discount, and gloves around the same price point. Trovata rugbys and polos for <$30. They had a nice, very varvatos brown 3-eyelet laceup for <$100 in some sizes, but the slightly upturned toe looked ridiculous on my foot. I came really close to buying a pretty surface to air paris bag in a light brown leather, but it was a little, uh, girly. Nice piece, though. Didn't look at jeans, they carry mostly crap in the Chevy store.

    Mostly crappy tshirts and stitch's jeans, but still some bargains--georgetown always seems to have a better selection, anyway, so it might be worth a shot.

    I was just at the Conn Ave Filene's and they have @20 Canali sport coats at 25% off of $599. I picked up one in a dark brown with a red/tan window pane.
