Ok, first of all, before I get flamed please take into account that I appreciate the concept of having a Thom Browne in fashion. I recognize how bland the world we live in would be if we all walked around wearing the same Brooks or Hickey or Borrelli. I also think that this Brooks/Browne combo could turn out to be a winner for Brooks. Fashion, even tried and true conservative suits, need to be tweaked every once in a while (have you seens some early 70's Savile Row suits? The lapels could be used as a runway). I am also pretty sure that Mr. Browne knows that the type of customer he is designing for at Brooks, is not the same type of customer that he designs tuxedo shorts for. Lastly, I also know that Bergdorf is a totally different store in concept and customer than Brooks, and thankfully there are stores like Bergdorf's who are there to support the Thom Browne's of the world. All that being said, this is just regoddamndiculous. A three piece suit (from the fall BG catalog), with the third piece being an outerwear vest (I get the irony). Pants that do not cover Chelsea boots. Dress-ski pants???????? I could get past all that stuff but patches (my sons OshKoshBGosh jacket has those patches), patches on the suit jacket sleeve!!!! WTF Who is this for??? What stylistic justification do the patches have? Yes, many moons ago people wore suits skiing. Those suits had no patches. I am sure the pedigree of the cashmere mink used in this suit is impeccable. I am also sure the construction is top notch. But $8,400 for this?? and Mr. Browne does not even have the regard for his customers to offer specific sizes? (you can get the suit in a "2 or 3"). Mr. Browne, I'm calling you out on this one. This is being a tool for the sake of being a tool.
