Thanks photon for the info. But several of the casually-dressed salesmen are definitely from the suit department and have worked there for years.
Nordstrom has an extensive Made-to-Measure program, and that is what I have seen some of the longtime salesmen wearing. Maybe it's just the sad fact that Southern California is a sartorial wasteland that causes your local Nordstrom to have low-rent garments? I imagine their shoe department has a wonderful selection of flip-flops though.
The age of the grand department store is truly dying....especially with Macy's taking over so many great regional stores like Dayton's, Marshall Field and Rich's.
All the ones I have gone to in The Pacific Northwest and Midwest they (were) really dressed to the nines. They get a really generous store discount and then some of the vendors give them a deal on top of that, so they will wear their garments on the sales floor.
I love the tie, eviltimeban!
I guess soon bankers and attorneys will show up for work in khakis and polos...
This is something I have noted on several recent visits. Not just on Black Friday.
No, they were not temps...Nordstrom is way too strict about who they allow on their sales floor. And the salesmen have worked there for years. With all due respect, Nordstrom is not "just a department store." They generally have better selection and service then many high-end, independent men's clothiers.
I was just daring the Black Friday madness at my local Nordstrom and it seems they have really loosened up the dress code for their male salesmen. It used to be almost inevitable that they were better-dressed than 98% of their customers, and it was actually more common than not to see them in MTM or bespoke (frequently three-piece) suits and all the trimmings. The last few times I have been in, some of the men selling suits aren't even wearing ties or jackets. I could...
I suggest another edition of "Fuck You, Casual Friday." The last one really brought out some amazing fits. Again, the name of the game is to wear one's sartorial best on the day when the slobs are dressing down: Three-piece beats two-piece, double-breasted beats single breasted....French cuffs and pocket squares will make the cream of the crop rise to the top.
