The place is called, I think, Inga's Once is not Enough and is on MacArthur Blvd, NW, across from the Safeway and the CVS where the old MacArthur theater used to be. I have driven by the store 1000s of times but only went in for the first time on Saturday. This place has got about 5 times more women's clothes than men's, but the men's clothes in there are very nice. For example -- 8 Brioni blazers (2 of which were 100% cashmere) in size 38R for $150 each; about a dozen assorted suits and blazers in size 46S - -mostly RL blue label (Corneliani) but also one RLPL DB suit and two Paul Stuart blazers. There was a gorgeous size 42 Chester Barrie in a wonderful medium gray with dark red chalkstipes, as well as a Belvest 38R. There were lots of nice shirts too. If your wives or gfriends are in the area, they should definitely check it out though, as it's clearly more woman-focused and they have, for example, a large section devoted to nothing but ladies' handbags.

It's a better place to shop than to consign.  I have taken Oxxford there only to be given the arched eyebrow and told that she only handles Armani and Zegna.  (I was too charitable to point ouit that she had Today's Man goods on the rack.)  She has a better understanding of women's labels than mens' so you should get some good deals as a result.

Thought I'd bump this, since I visited it today. As written above, the men's selection is small, but of surprisingly good quality. There were three very heavy tweed sportcoats by Flusser, in different shades and patterns of green, about 42 L. A nice unlined (shirtlike) brown linen blend sportcoat by Isaia, about 40R. An unlined brown coat by Belvest. A nice cotton jacket by Barbour (L), a reversible black/plaid overcoat by Aquascutum, a light blue db Brioni suit (40S?), several Polo, BB, Armani, Boss, and Zegna pieces, one nice Paul Stuart suit, med. gray tick weave in 40 R.

Black, brogued captoed Sutor Mantellassi's w/ Norwegian welting in 10 or 11. Some Cole Haans and Bally loafers.

Four or five new Ballantyne sweaters, one cashmere turtleneck in pinkish orange, two merino crews in the same color, a rasberry red merino crew, and another?

Prices were about 100 for sportcoats, 150-250 for suits, 60-80 for sweaters or shoes, 20-80 for shirts and pants.
