Gotta love kids. When a son calls and says Ma, how about we spend some time together today, have lunch. And oh yes, I could use a new suit or two.
Okay, I’m a sucker to help the kids, any time I can, so I said sure, let’s go shopping, my treat. Then came the question, where to go?
Long long long gone are the days of shopping at Brooks Brothers. The last time I went into a BB store was at least a decade ago, in the Stamford Mall. I don’t remember who I was shopping for, Mr. EOS likely, but I came out empty handed. Nothing unusual. Nothing even particularly well made. Generic.
So, with limited choices around these parts, we opted to meet up at Jos. A. Bank in Mount Kisco. Not exactly Armani, but for the price, getting a few new suits, Jos. A. Banks fits the bill, in more ways than one.
I have never shopped in a Jos. A. Banks so this is a first for me. I’ll report later how we did and where we went to lunch!
Onward. Happy Wednesday.
Turns out JAB was utterly worthless so we tried a store in Katonah. Nothing. What the hey, in Katonah, we’re right near 684 so we boogied up to the Danbury Mall. Although not exactly boogie speed. Construction and an accident = Back up blues 🙁
He got a gorgeous Ralph Lauren suit, and what’s a new suit without a new shirt, tie, belt, and shoes!?
We had a fabulous woman help us who grabbed things from shelves etc. It’s so rare to find store help, let alone good help. Excellent experience all around.
After my treat, I got treated to lunch at a restaurant I’d never heard of of been to: Duchess.
Duchess is a fast-food restaurant chain in southwestern Connecticut. Founded by Harold and Jack Berkowitz in Bridgeport in 1956, the company is privately owned and operated by Duchess Worldwide, Inc., based in Milford, Connecticut. The restaurants, 14 in all, feature an eat-in dining room, take-out service, and a drive-thru.
I had a chicken sandwich that was excellent. Really good quality bun, I mean like homemade bread bun. Delish.
All in all a good morning. Home just before the rains!
