I found myself in Darkest New Jersey today and was taken to a Burlington Coat Factory. I noted that there were actually a few decent mid-range designer suits there with attractive cuts and fabrics, though they were few and far-between and required quite a bit of digging. But what I primarily noticed was that approximately 70% of the suits they had discounted were ugly, multi-color pinstripes that myself or most men in business I know would never be caught dead in (note that I said "ugly" multi-color pinstipes, not multi-color pinstripes in general). I have also seen this kind of suit dominating Filene's Basement as well, so it make me wonder: Why do the suit manufacturers build so many suits of of these ugly fabrics when they know they have little chance to sell? I know that clothing manufactuerers make ugly garments all the time, but wouldn't it seem that they would figure out that this type of suit just isn't going to sell?
