    Zegna...as in the real deal or that fake crap, "Made with Zegna Cloth"??? or the other crap, Z Zegna???


    I thought the $600 stuff was mainline.

    Those $600 Zegna suits at Filenes are the made with Zegna fabric and are not good. Filenes will occassionally get in a mainline Zegna suit with its Vault stuff, but it will be at least $1,000 before any discounts go into effect.

    I went to the Filene's on Conn Ave Friday. They had three racks of Oxxford out. Sadly, it seemed most of them were Longs.

    I hit Nord Rack in Sterling yesterday....pretty fucking pathetic....the women's side of the house had all the new stuff. No new mens stuff at all.

    anyone have luck at the Off 5th Saks sale?

    FB at Mazza had a few racks of some brand of linen and cotton jackets, pants, and shirts from I'd never heard of. The jackets were all of 69.99 so I got a cotton one. Completely un-constructed; good for casual wear and travel.

    Still having their suit event (25% off for two, 20% for one). Not a bad selection from a quick glance. I almost got a HSM sportscoat but passed because I just didn't think it would go with enough in my closet. Which is too bad, because it looked very good.

    Shoes were shit, as usual.

    FB on Conn

    If you're a label whore

    Brioni Ties - 89
    Brioni Shirts - 199 (so that's what a Brioni shirt looks like...[​IMG] )

    I saw some Calvin Klein Collection stuff, but I didn't know about the quality.

    Didn't check the shoes or suits.

    Is there a definitive DC circuit?

    Low End
    - BR/J.Crew Mall stuff
    - Macy's
    - Marshalls @ Pentagon City
    - Outlet malls - The Rack and Off 5th in Potomac, Leesburg?

    Middle
    - Nordstrom
    - Church's

    High End
    - Sky Valet
    - The Alden shoe store whenever the open it
    - WM Fox (and there are at least 2 other suit makers, one by loeb's on 15th and I, and another one off of 14th)
    - Saks

    We should have a welcome to DC.

    Conn Ave. FB has a whole bunch of Barneys shipments in and more coming. There are some good deals, I got a Canali argyle light spring sweater for $29 and Valentino Uomo (made in Italy) dress shirts for $79.

    They're also having another suit sale and you can already place suits on hold for them now. About 3 racks of Oxxfords up there, a rack of Canali's and two of Hickey Freeman's.

    Seems like they are always having a suit sale. I'm just getting the alterations finished on the HF suit I got at the last Filene's suit sale.

    Yeah, I don't remember there being so many in the past.

    Maybe there's an unusual amount of overstock because of the economy? I know the lower-end/middle-end is really hurting. Macys can't give away suits! They were 75% off on about half of the section the last time I was there. Hugo Boss is always 20-30% off too.

    On a separate topic... Vineyard Vines is opening a store in Georgetown this Spring!

    The first month that place is open is a scene I want to miss. Ugh. The number of rich G-town assholes that will be in there will be staggering.

    edit: for clarification, I meant the G-town students, not residents of G-town, the neighborhood.
