Has the pricing of Brooks Brothers' Thom Browne-designed Black Fleece line quietly been adjusted? Yes, according to our friend over at The Life Vicarious, who reports that the cost of a Black Fleece patchwork seersucker jacket has been reduced from $1,900 to $1,200, and shoes that were once $800 are now a steal at $550. "Everything is still made in Italy, the construction and linings haven't changed, but the prices certainly have." Don't get us wrong—it's all still expensive. Just not obscenely expensive.
