Plus, its canvassed and in a navy pinstripe. What's not to like?
BB may be "more modern" than it's classical era but it's definitely downmarket.
The comparison I made with JAB had nothing much to do with JAB style, which I'd
characterize as generic. It had to do with quality and selection. Take pajamas, for
example. Not usually a style item. For over 20 years I purchased BB's oxford cloth pajamas.
About five years ago the oxford cloth pajamas were replaced by "no-iron" "oxford cloth"
pajamas made in China. The pair I bought have essentially distinegrated while the earlier
version, some pairs of which are over ten years old are still serviceable.
