I apologize for missing two days in a row posting this week, but work has really picked up and I have been training new staff members I hired. I will try to do better next week, and I will post this Sunday to make up for it (I usually do not).
Earlier today, I was viewing the Brooks Brothers website, and I stumbled upon the new Black Fleece collection. I am all for Brooks Brothers having a high end collection, but I have not quite forgiven them for letting Thom Browne provide his services. I find the cut of his garments appalling. Regardless, I am intrigued by the two suits featured in this post. Yes, the pants need to be longer, but the fabric and theme is interesting.
I have never seen a plaid suit from head-to-toe, and especially a plaid suit that comes off-the-rack. Furthermore, I definitely have never seen a patchwork seersucker suit. All of these clothes have a preppy appeal, but I don't know if I would be brave enough to step out of the house wearing such. There is no question that I would wear the jackets and trousers separately. However, I would never spend $2,000 for an off-the-rack suit (I think the Thom Browne, Black Fleece suits are around that price).
