No matter what you're looking for, chances are Filene's Basement has it for a waaaay cheaper price. I took my boyfriend shopping for work shirts here, and he spent 1/4 of his budget so he used the rest to stock up on other designer accessories - a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses, new Puma sneakers, a Kenneth Cole watch, 5 collared shirts... this all came to less than $300. They have brands from DKNY, American Eagle, and FCUK. It's pretty much like a department store with the prices slashed in half!! The handbag section is also expansive - I just purchased a gorgeous Beverly Hills Polo Club tote for $8. Yes, $8!!!! Love it.

Going to Filene's Basement, especially on the weekend, is an experience. For me, it is a huge headache and in the end, rarely worth the time and the pain. However, many people love browsing through racks and racks of clothes, and for those with patience, they are rewarded with amazing deals, as the clothes are automatically marked down depending on how long they've been on the rack.

I like the idea of Filene's Basement with its crazy reverse auction setup. But I have never found anything here. Just spent hours and hours sorting through tons of stuff. Yes items are discounted heavily, but they were expensive to begin with so often times they still cost too much. Also the dressing rooms are really just one big room with no curtains.

I love Filene's for the prices. They have a system of discounting items that really seems to work well keeping in mind the overwhelming amount of stock that moves through their store. My only complaint is the atmostphere. The basement always looks dank, and ther clothes are sometimes in bins that you have to rifle through.

The first time I stepped into Filene's Basement, I was astonished by its size. Racks and racks of clothing was densely packed and even more people were digging through the clothes frantically. Filene's has an interesting concept- to discount clothing depending on how long it has been on the rack. This could lead to amazing deals (up to 75% off) but also amazing headaches as the clothing are not arranged in any particular order, you must check each tag for the date and the price, and the sheer number of people.

If you have the time, and the patience, this is by all means a great deal and could even be fun. If you hate shopping, this is not for you.
