    You can’t get suspenders at Brooks Brothers. The sell galluses.

    If a Republican has a three piece suit does that mean he has three attorneys suing somebody? Is it the firm of Dewey, Screwem, and Howe ?

    In a demand, consumer economy if 20+% are unemployed and the remaining 80% or so are not buying anything off of your racks or tailor’s studios then you’ll have no money coming in and bankruptcy is a very real possibility. Our economy runs because people buy stuff. If everyone is trying to subsist on unemployment insurance then we have problems. With supplements to those UI checks it is a bit better, people can pay rent and buy food and stuff. Without those supplements we will have Trumptowns taking over from Hoovervilles all across the country and under every bridge and overpass. With a shutdown nobody buys your stuff because everyone is having Zoom meetings and you don’t see any revenue. The billionaires and millionaires can surely buy a suit or two to help, right?

    As an engineer, in the’ 60s through early ‘80s, practicality aside, I was expected to wear a suit to work, by the ’90s it was just a jacket when meeting a client. I don’t miss the dry cleaning bills and the damaged suits.

    One thing I like about nudists: You can’t tell how rich they are by their clothing… Though you can get a pretty good read on it by looking at secondary richness characteristics such as coiffeur and body modifications. And bags and shoes: Even nudists need pockets and shoes.

    The three-piece suit evolved at a time when protection from cold and dust was paramount. The tie is a mutated scarf, used to cinch the neck opening from dust and embers. The tie has been proven to restrict blood flow just that tiny bit that can result in bad decisions. Retaining the hot vest throughout the day meant that generations of women suffered from air conditioning chills. It is the outmoded armor of a distant age.

    It’s amazing! the board of directors saw this coming years ago and did nothing to replace the poor management and instead left the company in a nose dive. The board of directors should have been replaced! But the shareholders trusted them way too long!

    There’s irony here, but it’s pretty deep. Brooks Brothers is a privately owned American company that has been successfully in business for 202 years. TWO-HUNDRED AND TWO YEARS! It’s the model of the American business dream. And it’s filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Am I the only reader who sees this as part of a very worrisome trend? I really don’t want to end my days watching us recreate the French revolution.

    A coupla things:1) many Brooks Brothers customers were wild-eyed liberals like me;2) the workplace has changed, and so has business attire;3) BB’s decline began when they over-expanded and were acquired by Marks & Spencer;4) merger-mania, corporate raiders, and LBOs are what have ruined so many companies and cost so many jobs; and5) if we want to avoid the excesses of the French Revolution, we must reform business practices and the laws which reward corporate malfeasance.

    “President Trump” (isn’t that an oxymoron?) has had several bankruptcies (five and counting? Winning!) so, perhaps they should use his experienced lawyers…
