Thom Browne Going Down?

Handsome designer Thom Browne may need a new sartorial schtick.

Sure, critics loved his high-water suits, but Page Six offers a sobering wake-up call:

[Browne] is a darling of the fashion elite, but the masses aren’t enthralled. Despite his being crowed over by the New York Times and vying for the CFDA menswear designer of the year award (he lost to Tom Ford), fashionistas point out Browne’s deal at Brooks Brothers is over, and just last month, Bergdorf Goodman was still selling his Spring 2006 tuxedos. “His stuff may be acclaimed, but it’s not very popular with the consumer,” one insider said. Browne’s rep didn’t return repeated calls.

Wait – Bergdorf is still selling 2006 tuxedos? Gawd, we can’t believe we live in such a gauche city!

      Maybe if he didn’t price his suits out of reach of 99% of the public, he’d sell more of them. Which is a shame, because his suits work wonders on skinny boys like me.
