Ha! I thought I was the only person who suffered from logo (over-)sensitivity!

Stein Mart's logo appears very mid-century drug-store.

Your mordant wit is commensurate with your style and elegance, LK!

At the risk of being repetitive, it is beyond belief that there exists a forum from which you have been formally banished yet where Cruiser is permitted to run riot.

Why was LK banned there?

Look, just look, at how the 'i' joins the 'n.' It makes a discernible -- and unpleasant -- noise. Then observe further: the cramped dot over the 'i,' the flaccid 'S' and the inching 'M.' The meaningless crossbars on each 't.' It's painful.

Quite a popular material, I believe, for making cheap hats. In the South some decades ago, "wool hat boy" was a synonym for "redneck."

This is an insult to mid-century drug-store sign designers.

I actually have a Flusser blazer from SteinMart. I like it. It's saphire blue with a nice pop to it. Wore it to an interview about 9 months ago and got the job. SteinMart, like most discount retailers, is hit or miss. I've gotten a few gems there, enough to keep me checking in once every couple of weeks. Plus, it's usually fairly quiet and the staff is very friendly, so I enjoy the shopping experience. There's one about 8 miles from me. No complaints about them really. Nice place to go if you're on a budget.

That picture reminds me of going to our local Ross Store. Currently their is maybe just a few items worth buying but compared to Marshall's they don't stock Polo stuff except for belts. No Polo, No Nautica, No Tommy Hilifiger, etc. If you want a Polo shirt you are lucky to get one that Says Calvin Klein or Perry Ellis. If you don't mind getting stuck something like Chaps, Van Huesen or Izod then you will be ok.

This picture reminds me of the Tie Selection at Ross. They never have any good ties just the cheaper ones sold at Macy's and other departments stores. Any tie worth more than $50 they probably don't have it. I even saw some ties from the Steve Harvey Collection. I don't know of any major retailers that carry any Steve Harvey clothing items such as ties, shirts or suits.

Yea, the second you walk in you'll see it.

They always have at least 10 copies spread throughout the store. I picked up one there myself, great read.

Having frequented both stores, I can unequivocally state that Steinmart has a far better selection of ties than Ross. While Steinmart's tie department can be a little hit or miss, I always tend to find two or three keepers. I can't say the same about Ross.

If Alan Flusser is licensing his name on blazers that go for $199.99, then his name is now worth less than poop. Nice going, Al.

On second thought, this could be a nice move for Fluss.

His sole achievement prior to writing his book was his ability to get the Wall Street wardrobe people in touch with Alex Kabbaz. This was his crowning achievement for a good decade and a half.

Then he did his book, which was nice, but after that, he was probably hurting for some cash. I saw a few pics of him looking disheveled and disgusting, in all manner of scarves and overcoats, fucked-up hair, mean face on, etc. Sort of like Christopher Hitchens - just a tragic countenance. Truly sad.

In the last pic I've seen of him, he was wearing a poorly-fitting but well-made suit, and looked almost put-together. Maybe this licensing deal has put some money in his pocket and has prevented him from hitting rock bottom. We live in a capitalist society. Good for him. Hooray for comebacks.
