    I will be in Dallas on a business trip the week of December 5th and will have some free time. I would like to take advantage of the local off price stores or any sales while I am there. So far I see that there is a NM Last Call and an Off 5th not too far from my hotel in Grapevinehill and 2 Nordstrom Rack stores within driving distance ( I think they are, its my 1st time in Dallas ) in Plano and in Hurst. I am mainly looking for bargain prices on suits, sportjackets (Canali,Corneliani etc,) and ties, but would not object to any nice deals on other business attire items. Can anyone provide feedback on these specific stores or any other stores I should be visiting? Thank you P.S I wouldnt mind restaurant/entertainment recommendations either [​IMG]

    The Nordstrom Rack is actaully quite a drive from the Grapevine area - and usually doesn't have anything good for suits. Usually junk like Uomo. Occasionaly a few good winter coats.

    NM Last Call is you best bet, and usually has a pretty good smapling of Zegna, HF, and a few other suits. Brioni and Kiton sportjackets are common also. Off 5th will have a more limited selection but might have a few good deals.

    I don't wear many ties - so I can't advise as to a good place to get these.

    Stanley Korshak is downtown, and full retail (yikes) but it is kinda fun if you have extra time.



    My favourite fun restaurant is a brazillian churascaria(sp?) called Fogo de Chao in Addison. For intimate settings, a couple french restaurants are nice - Watels, and Chez Gerard.
    A reasonably good moderately priced seafood is Pappadeaux.
    Let me know if you are looking for anything particular.

    Scott, Thank you for the advice, I will probably not go to the Rack stores, my local NJ Rack in Elizabeth is mostly junk with only the occasional rare gem. What are the usual prices for the Zegnas at Last Call? Seafood and Brazillian sound good, the intimate setting places are going to be tough unless I find a friendly local lass [​IMG] Any recommendations on places to find the friendly locals ?
