No idea... if you find out, please let me know!

According to Wiki:

Quote:
The purpose of the boning in a corset varies slightly from era to era. Generally, the cinching/shaping properties of corsetry puts strain onto the fabric from which the corset is made. The boning supports the desired shape and prevents wrinkling of the corset fabric. Bones, and the substances used for the purpose, are often generically called boning.

Not really sure how it would relate to a suit though

I also have a feeling the site will crash. There is some lag right now and the sale hasn't even started.

A Bathing Ape is a Japanese label. If I recall correctly, the Mr. Bathing Ape line is a collaboration with United Arrows.

Why is the line so expensive?
I am not interested in buying them, but they look to be very overpriced.

BB is having a 50% clearance sale: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/men.pr...&rid=414947687 Got the email this morning. Looks like there's quite a few dress shirts, trousers etc at 50% off, but suits are almost non-existent (mainly separates).
