I went to the Potomac Mills Mall this past weekend and was roundly disappointed.  It definitely does not live up to its hype.  The selection at Off 5th and Nordstrom Rack was not that great.  I was thinking of going to the Leesburg Premium Outlet (which is owned by Chelsea Premium Outlets, owner of Woodbury Common, among other outlets).  The Leesburg outlet has a Barney's outlet, which Potomac Mills does not.  Before making the trek to this outlet (which is considerably farther away from me than Potomac Mills), I wanted to know if anyone had any opinion on Barney's outlets (versus Off Fifth or the Rack) or on the Leesburg outlet as a whole.

Steve B. probably can answer these questions, but any input is appreciated.

C: utlet shopping in DC wasn't very good when I was there, either. The thing to remember with outlets is in theory they're supposed to turn their inventory over every 3 weeks, so coming back often is a good idea.

And, as usual, LA Guy and I disagree on Barney's vs. Sak's outlets. He's fortunate enough to live close to one of only 3 Barney's outlets in the whole country that carry other people's brands. And just as unfortunate to live close to 2 or 3 OFAs that have less desirable selections when I've visited than any others in the U.S. Even the store in Orange was pretty tapped out when I visited a week or so ago.

But I do concur about the quality of Barney's house brand. It is indeed indisputable.
