I was so upset about losing our Neiman, it was our only true high end department store. Bloomingdales I view on par with Nordstrom and Macys is certainly a step below both. Now we have what, Heimies and Hubert Whites, for high end retailers? Nothing with a fashion forward feel which isn't my cup of tea but thats a big demographic and we lost all Isaia, TF and Brioni access...
Tell me about it.
Thrifting is going to suck terribly here in about 10 years when the stock of recent-ish high-end stuff starts to dwindle unless another store opens. Definitely. No more Isaia, Loro Piana, Kiton, Brioni.....etc.
At least Hubert White still carries Cucinelli, Oxxford and Zegna. Hubert White will be the only true high-end clothier left here. Heimies, Twill by Scott Dayton, Judd Frost, etc are upper-middle tier.
Thank God we have our small streetwear-ish boutiques like BlackBlue, Askov Finlayson, MartinPatrick3 and Len Druskin.
note, my brother works for Goodwill as a store clerk. They had corperate breathing down their necks today. He said they expect the store (in a lower middle/middle class area) to gross $6,000 per night. The store manager (who is super cool, probably the coolest manager I know of) said this is going to force them to mark up Polo and J.Crew (what little nice stuff they get). He said the store manager's boss pulled up in a brand new Lexus. Ridiculous......

RRL jeans marked as RL jeans, Gitman Vintage priced as regular Gitman. All of it was too big for me, except for this:
for $14, I think they thought it was some off brand BS.
Deets on any Gitman Vintage stuff? Willing to proxy? Dibs if L-XL.
Only one find today, but better than nothin'!
