    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    FWIW, DSW on Old Georgetown Rd/Democracy in what is that, Bethesda?, has a number of differen Allen Edmonds. A couple split-toes, the Dryden, and some slip-ons, I think. The Drydens were 199 if memory serves. Many sizes.

    Many sizes, because the guys that were in the store were passing by them and picking up the Stacey Adams and Ken Coles, etc. Ugh.

    yeah, the DSW in Pentagon City has pretty much the same. Iirc, they had Hillcrests, Byrons, a number of the $200-250 retail loafers, and I think maybe Birminghams. But the price was 199-209, nothing great.

    I'm gonna check out FB in Rockville next week. I've seen the lukewarm reviews of it in this thread, so I'm hoping I get better luck. If it's slim pickings, I'll swing over to the Marshalls on the Pike.

    You've been warned. I'll add some more: the entire suits/shirts/etc. area (dress clothes) is easily one quarter the size of the Mazza store. So even if they get something nicer in, there's no room for it because of all the cheap suits.

    Would anyone by any chance know where I would most likely be able to find suits in 36S? I've called around to a few places, even after they get new stock, but it seems like I can't find anything that fits.

    Yesterday I saw a light grey 3 button Canali at Filene's Conn Ave. store in 36S -- for $999.

    I believe I've seen the same suit at the Conn Ave store, and it looked pretty store-worn if we're talking about the same suit.

    Stopped by Rack in Sterling. Didn't have a lot of stuff. A few Canali ties, suits, sportcoats.

    yeah would like to know as well...

    Off 5th sent me their email only coupon thingy....20% off, today through Sunday...however last time I talked to the sales folks there, they said they are going to have a bigger event at the end of this month, so it might behoove you to hold off when that happens (am assuming at least 30% off)

    Potomac Mills: after getting through the jam on 95 south from the Beltway to Hoodbridge, I checked out Nord Rack.....what a fucking waste of gas and my time....I didn't see jack shit that was "new arrival" with regard to suits, sprotsjackets, shirts, or ties or shoes. If you are a 42L, you are in Hickey heaven....lots of suits in your size but only a couple here and there with the 30% reduced sticker. Tie selection sucked. Shirt selection sucked. Shoe selection royally sucked. Suit/sportjacket selection is the same as a few weeks ago when I was there, with maybe a couple new items here and there. Overall: sucked!!!

    Off 5th: mmmm, that hot Persian chick was working the men's section. Well I think she is more Indian or Paki since I couldn't understand anything she was saying to her co-worker (I studied Farsi for several months and didn't recognize anything she said). 20% sale, open to the public, going on now. Suit selection sucked. no new items since I was there last time, a few weeks ago. Same old tie selection, shirt, pants, etc. Shoe selection was eh.

    Marshalls: there ain't jack shit there, just suits that would be good donations to the local Salvation Army than worth paying for.

    anyone have luck at the Leesburg outlets? Off 5th, Barneys, etc??

    Yeah, it's a toss-up most days. Once in a while I catch a Robert Talbot shirt or tie there, maybe HF ties or a HSM shirt. But it's only occassionally. And I don't catch any of the names of shirts you guys are looking for. (I like RT and HSM).

    Even less often I find a bowtie I like. Their small accessories are crap (PS, etc.).

    My wife usually finds a pair of shoes she likes (though most times not in her size).

    the men's shoes are very underwhelming there. What surprised me is that FB carries Ferragamo shoes for women, but not for men.

    This is true at all FB's though, isn't it? The Conn Ave has one pair of AE Dryden's (that they've had for 6 mo now) and then a ton of shit by the looks of it.

    Ferragamo huh? Too bad.
