Notes of a shopaholic
Thursday, November 13, 2003:
Off Bluefly, I ordered two more pairs of pants from French Connection (one camel stretch wool blend, the other grey-black velour) and one from Diesel. I've had about enough of French Connection. Their clothes look cheap! The quality of the fabrics is clearly below Banana Republic, although their retail prices are about 40% higher. The Diesel pants are fine. I wished they made more clothes without plastering their logos on everything.

The New York Times says bold print shirts for men are selling well. This could generate an interesting dynamic. As women have long known, bold patterns don't have much staying power--you wear them a few times and then they start to look tired. Will men actually follow women's strategy and frequently update their wardrobes?
