Mr. Peskowitz over at, report in on the opening of the New York City Brooks Brothers Black Fleece Flagship store. “Recession be damned, the first freestanding Black Fleece store is set to open this weekend—though in fairness, the store met with months of delays due to the landmark status of its West Village location. Inside, you’ll find exactly what you’d expect: the Thom Browne-designed Brooks Brothers offshoot’s entire spring collection, including (for gents) paisley pants, plaid shirts, and, of course, suits.”
