Filene's Basement Is Closing

[No] thanks to Karl for pointing out that Filene's Basement and Syms will be going out of business.  I don't know of any department stores offering $600 Hickey Freeman suits, though the Filene's people apparently do.  They were never much good for casual wear but have always been ace for high-end suits and denim. 

In times of grief like this, I find myself wracked with guilt about what I could have done to save them.  Maybe if I'd bought more suits...!  Maybe if I hadn't taken a job in Fairfax...!  But regrets bedevil us all, I suppose.
