My friend's a tailor at the Brooks Brothers shop at the mall here, and she wasn't there today. Meaning she's getting a surprise visit from me sometime tomorrow. Was tempted to get the second shirt for $259 but they only had the grey herringbone.
This is dumb. How often can you find good men's design that isn't really expensive? I was totally uninterested originally but now you can get really cool design at less than regular h&m prices. It's fun. I'm thinking I'll head back and get that giant oversized peacoat, wear it like a cape over a suit when I feel like being weird.
It's got nothing to do with name brand cache and everything to do with the once-in-a-rare-while opportunity to buy something that isn't chinos/flannel/blue checked shirts at prices that normal people pay for clothes, rather than the grossly inflated ones we normally pay here.
