Regarding the NM last call sale, if you really want the best stuff, your best bet is to go now. Right now, the sale is something like 20 or 30% off, but it is during this part of the sale (before the bottom basement Last Call sale) that it seems most of the Kiton/Borrelli/T&A gets sold. Also, don't forget there are two NMs in the DC area -- Mazza and Tysons. A couple years ago, I was amazed by how much more stuff the Tysons store had at the Last Call sale. For example, there were dozens and dozens of Incotex and Oxxford slacks in my size, with the Oxxfords marked down from $495-600+ to about $200, whereas the Mazza store only had a few stray pairs when I went. Sometimes, I think the experience has been the opposite, with Mazza getting the better selection. If you're in the market for RLPL (slacks, shirts, sweaters) or NM-store label cashmere sweaters, for example, it's probably better to wait until the Last Call sale. By the way, I got a postcard about Wm. Fox on 15th street having its annual winter sale. 50% off lots of winter garb.
