I don't claim to know anything more than what I was told by Thom Browne and the staff at Bergdorf. I didn't say he was a "regular employee" of Bergdorf (like a sales associate), only that he worked there a few days a week in his own section of the store. It was not a periodic trunk show arrangement. After all, he was not the important designer he is now.

Yes, he was more important then. But to the guy going ot Freeman's make sure you get lunch behind and have the Devil on Horseback or whatever they are called apps. Very, very good.

So, you're the guy. You're almost at legend status over there...

Yep, I believe the shorter was about $1,600 and there was a longer (maybe a shave bit more than 3/4-length) peacoat for about $1,800. I had a hard time taking that off after trying it on.

I think I had those. I also highly recommend the roulade of rabbit if you get a chance to have dinner at the restaurant.

Now who's this Thom Browne sales clerk you guys are arguing about?

I'll look for the ties I got from there and post pics later if I remember. I'm happy with the deadstock wool ties and they aren't terribly expensive at around $60. The peacoats are attractive but expensive; same with the shaving accessories. It's worth going in and looking around; it won't take you long. Couldn't hurt to have a drink or app at the bar in their restaurant around the corner at the end of the alley.

Any opinions on the sweaters? Do they fit true to size?

They're addictive. The artichoke dip is also delicious.

Not that this really has anything to do with Freeman's clothes or food, but I used to live in 8 Rivington (same building where Freeman's Sporting Club is now, but back then it was a furniture place) and the trash can for the building was in that same alley as the restaurant. A couple of times a year they would have some private event at the restaurant but set up the velvet rope at the beginning of the alley, right there on Rivington. I went down to take the trash out one night in shorts and flip flops and the woman working the velvet rope wouldn't believe me that I was just trying to take out my trash and tried to have security guards stop me from going into the alley; she thought I was trying to sneak into the event and my trash bag was a ploy.

NYC is pretty ridiculous sometimes.

I'm not particularly disagreeing, and I really like freemans, but in terms of the food, there are other places downtown that put out much better rustic new american at the moment.

I remember reading some interview on Thom Browne where he said in the beginning he was always running around town trying to sell his suits and doing whatever he could to promote them. I would not doubt it if someone like you is saying that he was there to talk to customers and sell his line personally.

But socal is probably right. After all he is fashion jesus.

His old studio was not in Tribeca and more Chelsea/Meatpacking. He also used to sit in front of Pastis wearing his suits as a way to market them.

I'm glad your RSS Feed on me is working. stopstalkingmekthxbai

I'm afraid to ask . . . . I can't imagine that's a good thing. The trout at the restaurant is good too. There are better "rustic american" restaurants in NYC, but everything I've had at Freeman's has been good, and I can't say that about the other places. Also none of the others sport the collection of bearded, flanneled, red-wing-wearing hipsters who look like they took a wrong turn at an Oregon lumber yard and somehow were magically transported to NY.
