This week, you’re stocking up on wearable handsomeness from Kent Wang’s online haberdashery (where you’ve got an extra $50 for polos, cufflinks and more). Also: 30% off incredibly tough jackets from Nau and 40% off a new pair of winter shades. ’Cause squinting never looks good...
Things to do for December 07, 2012
Suits, Ties and So Many Oysters...
The weekend only negotiates from a position of strength.
60% Off at Streets of Georgetown
Sad news: Streets of Georgetown, your treasure trove of all things tweed and cashmere, is closing next month. In the meantime, you can take 60% off the store, from Bobby Jones golf shirts to the favored suits of President Obama, Hickey Freeman. They’re working out okay for him.
You know the story: former White House staffer connects with Berlusconi’s tie maker. Okay, maybe you don’t know. You should still know his ties, hand-sewn in Como, folded seven times and now at a discount at this weekend’s trunk show. Your next deal practically closes itself.
The March of Banh Mi and Pho Continues
Good thing you’d like some soup and spice right about now, because here’s another Vietnamese spot. Pick from stuff like meatball pho and pork-belly banh mi, then consult the handy maps on the wall for tips on how to garnish and eat your dishes. It’s a dinner cheat sheet.
Grab-and-Go Oysters at Dupont Market
No sooner will brunch conclude than you’ll start thinking about... oysters. Well, if you’re strolling through the Dupont farmers’ market, anyway. They pull these things out of Virginia’s Eastern Shore every day and serve them up shucked, roasted or in the shell for take-home. Better find your gold-plated oyster knife.
You’d expect this kind of thing to arrive in a sleigh—19 kegs of DC Brau beers, the most ever in one place, including wacky stuff like Burial at Sea and Fight Club. Also, they’re at happy hour prices all night. And no, they wouldn’t fit in your stocking anyway.
