    Going to the Outlet Mall in Atlantic City this weekend. Not going specifically for the outlets, but I'll be there anyway and thought I would check it out.

    Im specifically in the market for business casual slacks and black shoes. Will also pick up casual/streetwear if I get impulsive.

    Anything I should lookout for? Anything I should avoid?

    Nothing too interesting on that list for me. I don't think BB's outlets have too much of their mainline stuff any more do they?

    Too bad. That was top on my list. Unfortunately, Im not knowledgeable enough to know the difference.

    I may pick up some BR slacks/khakis if I can get them cheap.

    Also was thinking of Kenneth Cole if I can get it under $100.

    Please talk some sense into me.

    Kenneth Cole what if I may ask.

    Actually, it's irrelevent, both stores are crap. The BR outlet has stuff that is specifically made for them, below the quality of the main store stuff.

    Is this true for J. Crew as well?

    Yes and no, they have a lot of main store stuff too.

    Not exactly sure. Black broques or Chelseas if I can get them for cheap. Im running out of time before my job starts on July 16, so I was thinking of getting something cheap to hold me over till I can get something better off B&S or ebay. I have brown AEs coming in the mail via ebay.

    Then again, I may just go to the CT store in NYC to get the Chelseas (if still on sale). Then I will have 2 pair of decent shoes which should get me through the first few weeks of work.

    The BR outlet has stuff that is specifically made for them, below the quality of the main store stuff.

    Your right. Its so disappointing. I thought the point of the outlet was to get overstocked stuff for cheaper than retail. The tags for the BR stuff even say BR FACTORY or whatever.

    But again, Im looking for something to carry me over till I can get better stuff in the upcoming weeks. For me, I dropped a waist size, so I have really NOTHING that fits and its getting to be crunch time.

    The H&M outlet may be worth checking out....
