Logsdail: Target suits good value per WSJ - Page 2

My wife's niece sold shoes at Nordstrom's, and she had a regular customer who was extremely wealthy who bought numerous shoes from her. I expressed surprised that a man of his means would patronize Nordstrom's so much if he had such a taste for shoes, thinking that he would want marques like EG, JLP, Lattanzi and the like if he were such a rich shoefan. She informed me that while he bought a lot of shoes, they were all just cheap, sub-$100 crap. Curious that!

It is not about the money, its about taste.

I guess I know a lot of financiers who read the WSJ who are into fine clothes and they tell me they would like more articles about better clothes. I'm not sure how big a part of the reader demographics they are but I do wonder if that article

Some rich people are very stingy in the area of clothing (often some of my neighbors who drive $90K Mercedes!) but even Warren Buffett has been buying Zegna suits recently.

Has anybody bought one of the JCPenney Stafford suits and how do you like it?

"Cruiser," one of the leading lights of the Ask Andy About Clothes Fashion Forum, owns several J.C. Penney suits and is a great proponent of them.

Other than a single shirt on sale for $10, I don't think I have ever purchased a single item of apparel from JCP, but most of their stuff looks like pretty decent value for the money, especially when it's on sale.

I missed the memo on Mr. Cruiser's elevation to 'leading light'. Is that a self-appointed position?

"Leading light" must be a euphemism for "perpetual contrarian."

No, it is merely a self-evident fact. A number of people are now referring to the former AAAC as "Ask Cruiser About Clothes." As I have mentioned elsewhere, by mere force of personality and dogged pertinacity, he has established himself as your new arbiter elegantiae. He's a hell of a fellow, I've got to concede.

It's not merely the quantity of people, but the quality.

With that I would not argue.

Obviously, you caught my double-entendre!
