Men’s Suit Sale, Filene’s Basement

Every fall and spring, rack after rack of Ermenegildo Zegna, Calvin Klein, Joseph Abboud, and other highbrow treasures are wheeled out onto the Basement’s packed Downtown Crossing floor. They’re the overstock and still-beautiful seasonal leftovers from upscale behemoths such as Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Barneys New York. And at prices that dip down to 70 percent off, you can snag two suits—plus tailoring—for the cost of one of their full-priced cousins.
