Brooks Brothers launched their Friends & Family sale today - 25% off whatever. This is the time to grab stuff that doesn’t otherwise go on sale - it’s tough to get a better discount on Peal shoes, for example. I grabbed a tuxedo shirt for an upcoming black tie event - my old one didn’t fit anymore, and they never go on sale.
Runs through the weekend, use the code FNFBB1.

When I was in San Francisco the other day, I was riding the BART train to my mom’s house. Somewhere around the 16th & Mission statement, this couple started looking at me.
"Why are these people mad dogging me?" I thought. I was tempted to get up in their face, but instead, I tried to avoid eye contact. 18 years as a City kid taught me to avoid those kinds of confrontations unless absolutely necessary.
We got to my mom’s stop, 24th Street, and it turned out to be their stop, too.
I was behind them, and I noticed the woman was carrying an Archival Clothing musette.
"Oh." I thought, a little embarassed. "They were probably just wondering if I was the Put This On guy." The demographic to whom I am a public figure is narrow, but it definitely includes people carrying Archival Clothing bags. Felt kinda bad about that.
ANYWAY…
Our pals at Archival Clothing make beautiful, high-quality bags and clothes in simple, utilitarian designs. They’re a little expensive, but only because they’re made right, not because they’re taking a crazy designer mark-up. They’re having an odds-and-ends sale to ease their move into a new space, so if you’re in Oregon, you should definitely stop by May 18th. It’s at 445 Lincoln Street in Eugene, and will run from noon to seven. You might score a great deal. Or accidentally pick a fight.

Spotted: Incotex at Daffy’s
For those of you in the Northeast, our friends over at Yellow Baggers (a blog that only covers menswear at the regional discount chain Daffy’s) are reporting that they’re getting in the one product that’s worth visiting Daffy’s for - Incotex trousers. They’ve only seen them so far in the Philadelphia store, where the blog is based, but if you’re in New York or Philly, hopping down to your local Daffy’s and looking for Incos (distinguished by the signature belt prong loop above the fly if the tags are cut) is a great idea right about now. Prices are $20-35, down from $100-200. Yellow baggers also notes that Daffy’s has a 20% off Friends & Family sale going on now through the end of the weekend - the coupon is on their Facebook page.
If you’re not in the Northeast, then look for a flood of Incotexes on eBay and the Styleforum Buy & Sell board, at about twice Daffy’s prices.
