    Brooks Brothers Clearance Finds

    Since the main site's comments are down, I'm going to throw this in here. Anyone have any experience with BB's socks? I picked up a pair of cotton over-the-calfs, but wondering about their durability. I bought a pair of their wool socks through Nordstrom a while back and they shrunk down so much as to almost be unwearable.

    Also, picked up this tie in two colors. Seems like a great price ($35.70) for a pretty basic tie...although I wish it was 2.75" rather than 2 5/8".

    Cold wash delicate, gentle dry those socks. Once I started doing that my wool socks stayed in better shape.

    And I really liked that white cable turtleneck from yday.

    Like the tie. I think the width should look fine.

    @LosRockets I'll have to try that. I typically cold wash my Pantherella socks and air dry them without problems. Maybe BB wool socks are just more finicky.

    Like that tie a lot, wish I'd spotted it sooner.

    I did manage to snag the last pair of these

    2 5/8 is a bit on the slim side but not awful.
