With all the talk of places like Mitchell's, Wilkes, and Louis Boston, I've been thinking: You don't see many places that that around. Outside of Boston, NY, and SF there aren't really a lot of great places like that, it seems. So, my question is, do you think that there are those on this board who could open a Wilkes Bashford type of place and operate it successfully. And when I say successfully, I'm talking about profits around $500,000 a year, at least. What does a place like Mitchell's bring in for yearly profits? I was in there the other day -- great store, but still could be better. Isn't there a hole in the high-end suburban men's clothing arena that could be filled by a store offering premium clothes (i.e. something above Hickey Freeman) and great service (i.e. people like Manton, A. Harris, etc.)?
