Pretty sad state of affairs for G&H
To be fair, with the exception of the ‘halo’ bespoke product their RTW has been disappointing for a long time. Over the same time period M&S’ tailoring has also underwhelmed - especially compared to the period in which they offered their hand-canvassed Savile Row and Best of British lines.

I am sure he’ll come out of it OK but I worry mostly about Davide Taub as he’s genuinely visionary. Would really like to see him creating a RTW line for M&S with high construction quality - but there is a valid question over whether the demand is there.

Every time M&S has gone upmarket it’s been a loss-leader for them. Hence the realistic / cynic in me knows if they brought G&H it would just become a subbrand to shift more SKUs.

Ralph Lauren Corp reported earnings and performance saying that there was significant demand for tuxedos and evening gowns as people want to dress up.
Area man attributes growth of large fashion company earnings to black tie sales, hilarity ensues as non insane people ponder that idea.

"Something unnatural is afoot. Our affinities are increasingly no longer our own, but rather are selected for us for the purpose of automated economic gain. The automation of our cognition and the predictive power of technology to monetize our behavior, indeed our very thinking, is transforming not only our societies and discourse with one another, but also our very neurochemistry."
