I can’t make out what animal/thing is pictured on Mr. Burke’s club tie. Could you be so kind, Mr. Sartorialist, as to let me know?

Not much of a look Mr. Bastian.
The suit is good and so is the shirt, but why wear a tie that’s almost the same color as the suit?They are close enough to clash in fact.
A little color please.
Even his glasses are close to the same tone.
He gets a style C- from me.

I like the look. It’s a study in black, white, and grey — dark grey pinstripe suit, light grey horizontal stripe shirt w/ a white contrasting collar, black club-patterned tie. Cool.

Could those be “snails” crawling across Mr. Burke’s tie?

Alright, enough of this redundant praise. The only reason why we’re commenting on Mr. Burke is because his pic is up. He’s ok –as generic as can be –but ok.I wouldn’t date him (on appearance alone) whether I were a man or a woman.. Rodent cravat apart, looks more like a beurocrat than an aesthete. Bergdorf’s a great store, only because it mimics Europeans without subduing to American men’s stores commercial garmento “slick” Canalied up the wazoo.I’d still like to see less of the usual hyped up labels, and more discovery of those lesser known finds.Someone who “loves” what he does so much should put their _____ on the table and make a difference.Instead, best of luck on his new job. xoxo

oh, by “usual hyped up labels” do you mean labels like Thom Browne, Adam Kimmel, Spencer Hart,etc. and all the young womens designers they bring in?
Bergdorfs really puts its ass on the line by producing the best private label products of any department store in the country and maybe the world.

I have to agree with the previous anonymous post, these smaller labels distinguish the store, but are still props. (P.S. they also had their fair share of press pre-Bergdorf, not vice versa)
The branded ones drive the margins to the bank.
It’s a textbook merchandising formula in any retail arena.Trust me, they succumb to the big boys like everyone else.
Still a good store anyway, not to worry.
