Whats so special about Dior Homme? I'm in the LA area, but I'm sure you can just call the store and they can ship an order to you. I have never been to Maxfield.

Wilkes Bashford is a very classic oriented store. However they do have Roberto Cavalli for women.

I don't doubt that Dior Homme didn't sell a Neiman's because when I went to the presale at the Neiman's outlet they had loads of it for like nothing. I got a t-shirt for $40. I would seriously go to your neighborhood Neiman Marcus Last Call Clearance Center and check.

I had no idea that the NM Last Call had a pre-sale like the actual NM store. How is the selection usually and are you on an email/mailer type thing for this? I've never heard about this before from any of the Last Call associates....they do run special events which can include discounts.....I'll have to get on that mailer.....

There's a Neiman Marcus Last Call in Elizabeth at the Jersey Gardens Mall, which is much closer than Woodbury. I actually find the selection there to be better than Woodbury. Everybody and their grandmother raids the stock at Woodbury and the good stuff at NM Last Call is gone fast. I'm talking about people knowing shipment dates, etc.
I never got the hype over Woodbury myself, seems like you can get the same discounts/better merchandise at a sale in the city, without the hassle.

Since there is an NM last call (and saks outlet) like 5 minutes from my mom's house whenever I'm home I usually make my way over. So, usually the selection is pretty whatever, you have to dig for the best stuff (this is middle of nowhere Michigan after all, not NY). But, then one time a sales associate came up to me and invited me to go into their backroom/wharehouse to see all the new men's stuff which they were preselling to their "best" customers before putting it on the floor. That was the main difference between the NM last call presale and the regular NM presale. The clothes and such aren't put onto the floor for all to browse through, you have to be invited or make an appointment. But, the selection is seriously like 1000 times better than what is usally in the store. My new theory is that they presell their best stuff out of the wharehouse before most customers ever even see it. It was a really fun VIP experience (I am such a fashion nerd). They gave me a personal shopper (who knew at the outlet?) who first asked me "what are your favorite designers? Everything is arranged by desginer." I was like "uh, uhhhhh, them all?" It was shopping heaven, rack after rack of Prada, Dior, Gucci, Cavalli, Y3, Dolce, etc. And what made it even better was that everthing had like target prices. I only spent $160 (why didn't I bring more money?) that day and for that got: army green Dolce and Gabbana pants, Dior Homme t-shirt, Gucci leather belt, and Dolce flip flops. I really regret leaving behind all these armani jeans priced at 40-60 dollars and silver Dior Homme jeans originally $600, on sale for $125. I don't understand why they are so secretive and exclusive with their presales, but as a neiman marcus card holder and Incircle Rewards member I recieved no e-mail either from neimans or the store itself which has it's own mailing list. Rather for the presale they just had they personally called me and invited me to set up an appointment. That was the only way I heard about it. I can definately post something about the presale here the next time it happens (note: they do men's and women's seperately, because they get so much stuff they couldn't do both at once). So everyone can take advantage by calling their local store and setting up an appointment. It really is the time to get the best deals and selection, before "everyone and their grandmother" has sorted through it and bought the best stuff. Sorry this post is so long by the way

Definitely agree about Woodbury, that's why the angry face icon. One can do much better at Century 21 or a clearance sale in a good store. Thanks for the info on Elizabeth, it's 20 min away from me.
