The Saint Laurent Paris store in Chicago was recently hit with a smash-and-grab robbery and lost about $100,000 worth of merchandise. After I mentioned it on Twitter, my friend CrimsonSox shared with me this story you see above. Apparently, in 1964, a Brooks Brothers store lost about $200,000 worth of merchandise after some thieves jimmied open a window. 
Accounting for inflation, that’s about $1.5 million today.
