Century 21 stores closing

520 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Avers
On September 10 sad news for those who are in NY metro area was announced - Century 21 stores are going out of business. Another victim of Covid pandemic. This particularly upsetting, I've been going to that store for years!!!

Their offerings were a mixed bag, but one could find some gems in their stores - Kiton, Zegna, Armani, Hickey Freeman, Allen Edmonds, Bruno Magli, Brioni and countless other quality makers...

They've been in business since 1960.

My situation is very close to yours, although I retired ten years ago -- I still do work in my old laboratory, but that hardly requires formal dressing! I have all the clothes I'll ever need, and a few years ago, gave away almost two-thirds of my suits, sport coats and dress trousers to an outfit here which provides dressy clothes at nominal prices for people who are looking for jobs or starting out in their careers, and need good clothes for interviews, etc.

I still pick up the odd item here and there, and I feel I am in need of another purge, another give away, or sale at a consignment shop. Still, I can't resist a find because I am a collector at heart. And that is why I have hung on to some of the nice pieces I have. Every now and then, I'll wear some nice clothes and shoes to an event, or even a lunch with friends at a good restaurant, or an evening out with a lady -- although evenings out have not happened very often, not since the infamous plague struck us all.

The biggest idler in my wardrobe? Neckties! I have an enormous number, and very few occasions left when I can wear them. So, one of these days, I am going to have to go through them and purge, send bunches of them to family members and friends. The trouble is that a lot of people don't want them, they have little use for them.
