Brooks Brothers and Blueberries

I am traveling eastern NC on business this week, and decided to go a little out of the way to the BB clearance center in Garland. The area is all about blueberries, a small shirtmaking company, and a hole in the wall place that is the clearance center. Someone once posted on AAAC that this is the place where great clothes go to die, and I agree. Also, it strangely has a Twilight Zone feel.

While I am sure the selection is hit or miss (they get shipments daily), the majority of goods are in the medium sizes. However, I did pick up several nice jackets and coats that fit me well (42L-ish). I got a few ties, some Irish linen sport coats and other nice casual and over coats in medium to large sizes that I will share on the B&S here this weekend. None of the 346 or BrooksEase stuff, although there was plenty there. I passed up a few seemingly orphaned Golden Fleece jackets.

If you ever find yourself in the Wilmington or Raleigh vicinity with a few hours to spare, I highly recommend making the trip to Garland. Only on weekdays from 9-5, of course.

Stay tuned for some great deals that I will offer in a few days.
