Does anyone know where finance bros buy their clothes?

Need to buy gift card. TIA.

by Anonymousreply 77December 2, 2023 4:01 PM

The really rich ones buy their clothes at Brioni and Ermenegildo Zegna.

Brooks Brothers? J. Press? Paul Stuart is pretty expensive.

I don't really know but I had to put in my 2 cents worth anyways.

Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus if they're well off.

Walmart if they're not.

Give an Amex gift card…why would you want to limit your gift to a single store when you don’t even have the first clue about which store that would be? You don’t sound like a very sincere gift giver.

Lululemon or Vuori

R6, a guy who works in a creative field can wear an edgy suit. I'm pretty sure people who work in finance are expected to dress conservatively.

They do not dress up at all—that’s the point R16. Jeez.

You are clueless r17. We aren't talking about some bay area tech start up. When you work in finance in NY you are absolutely expected to dress up for work, I see that crowd all the time.

The guy I dated had a lot of Charles Tyrwhitt and Suit Supply OP. Think those are common brands.

by Anonymousreply 18December 1, 2023 4:06 PM

Really, R17. Michael Kors is a creative person. He wears a suit. Tom Ford is a creative person. He wears a suit. Should I continue proving you wrong?

Why would a finance bro want a tacky "gift card"? I was a bootstrapping finance bro out of college, 1st get Ivy League. I had a rich auntie who nevertheless understood the writ and gave me her Brooks Brothers charge account for year. I would have rathered Paul Stuart but I was terribly grateful. This was decades ago but Brooks was kind of old fogey even then. As soon as I had my own money I bought Italian and French suits. Those Italian suits fit like a second skin. Entry level was 1k, on sale! 40 years ago! How much is a basic Brioni nowadays? 4k? 5k? 8k?

by Anonymousreply 32December 1, 2023 6:46 PM

In short, is the gift card going to be for 1K or more? If not, why not consider a different gift. If all you can afford is a $200 tie, just give the tie directly, no gift card.

The really rich go to tailors that no one on this board have ever even heard of. Kids (under 35) and the upper middle class (which describes 99% of the people the OP is talking about) buy that overpriced Italian crap mentioned above because they don't know any better.

Bespoke suits from coveted private suit makers. Some don't go for Euro cuts and designers. If they are East Coast old money and the boarding school/Ivy crowd they could go more conservative. You don't see a lot of skinny suiting in the exclusive private clubs. The skinny trouser and tiny jackets are considered laughable no matter how much the guys wearing them paid for them.

It's okay, OP. We're going off on a tangent. We couldn't let R37's comments go unchallenged.

I see, R46. So the Italian brands we've mentioned don't have suits in more conservative cuts? They're only dressing skinny young guys?

If he is an escalator "finance bro" peon in flyoverstan, give him a tie he knows is "quality". Whatever that might be. Perhaps a Turnbull & Asser or Charvet. He probably doesn't have nice ties but would appreciate one.

I teach half my courses in the business school and I love it when the young men wear suits to class. They act differently, too. Some of them are sooooooo sexy when they are all cleaned up. So optimistic, with lots of testosterone.
