Brooks Brother's may not have the same cashe as it had 50 years ago but that doesn't mean the brand should be entirely dismissed. We've been meaning to stop by since new store opened in Carnegie Hill. The clearance time was the perfect excuse.
The store has been clearly assembled to cater to families. The girls and boys department still has a handsome amount of clearance items that are mostly 50% off. We found, a girl's shirt dress for $32 from an original price of $65, a fleece hooded sweatshirt is $30 from $60 and a bright yellow boys nylon jacket is $50 from $100.
Men's "Golden Fleece" suits are mainly $950 from a starting price of $1900 and almost all the dress shirts are 30% off one and 50% off two or more. In the shoe department, we found many styles reduced even more than 50% off. One pair of deerskin loafers were $187 from $468 and Peel & Co. loafers were $195 from $488.
This sale is perfect to get in touch with your more preppy side. For some, however, an argyle button-up vest might be way too much.
