Does Kenneth Cole sell anything that would be SF approved?

Hey All,

Does Kenneth Cole make/carry anything that would be SF approved? I know to avoid their shoes, but how about their bags, shirts, jackets, etc?

Reason for me asking, is that they are offering 44% off on election day:


With potential that the discount can be bumped to 68% off:

So assuming 44% off, do they have any goods that would be of decent quality? ie. collar on a shirt doesn't bubble after a few washes, etc.

//update - nevermind on the 68% off thing - doesn't look like you can get giftcards with this discount ;-)

The square toed shoes will cover a lot more floor surface area when smooshing spiders.

Their shoes are complete shit, including the Kenneth Cole New York ones. I got two pairs just before my styleforum days at an extreme discount and they are complete shit. Lots of glue and horrible leather used in production. I won't even wear them out to a bar anymore.

Their shoe trees are fine. I use them in my Aldens all the time. They are made in the USA, somewhere in Upstate NY, if memory serves.

Interestingly, the one thing I have by Kenneth Cole that I use a lot is a little black, microsuede overnight bag. My grandma once gave it to me for Christmas after getting it as a free gift when buying cologne for my brother. I don't think he's often used the cologne, but after 2-3 years, the bag still looks nice and has survived numerous trips essentially unharmed (aside from having lost its zipper pulls).

Okay in all seriousness now. I do have a shirt and two ties which I like very much that I picked up at various discount stores.

i bought a pair of black slip on dress shoes with their silver technology and i am really happy. i also bought a cheaper pair of shoes without their silver technology and they are killing my feet as we speak.

mind you, both were at the outlet store heavily discounted. i would try a pair of the silver technology, it's quite nice for the price.

I have some Kenneth Cole socks that have not worn noticeably worse than my Calvin Klein socks.

I'll own up to it...I still wear some Kenneth Cole stuff. My favorite khakis in the entire world are KC Reaction. The fit is the best I've ever tried...better than J. Crew, RL Rugby, Incotex.

There's also a half zip sweater that I wear every now and then.

As for shoes......I'll never own another pair. They are complete garbage.
