Brooks Brothers Bankruptcy: Nostalgia, Anger, and a Bidding War
"The abandonment of the suit helps explain the struggles of one of America's most iconic fashion companies, brooks brothers, the two hundred two year old brand filed for bankruptcy protection on July eight sure blame cove nineteen, but now you'd be wrong. Suits with the three piece with Thai or skirts and high heels used to convey professionalism and competence, they served as symbols that you took your job seriously and respected your customers, the ones you were treating too expensive lunches, madman style, but even before the pandemic they'd become something of an anachronism. Most of us now see little to no relationship between the way we dress in our competence at work, think Mark Zuckerberg's hoodies. Indeed expensive suits can be viewed as a sign of elitism. Put it starkly. The corporate fashion code has gone by the wayside. Brooks brothers struggles represent a cultural shift, not just a Kobe tragedy. Brooks brothers famously dressed all but four presidents. It is the longest continuously operating fashion business in America and until this month it boasted about making its products in America the Brandon's three factories in the states in Massachusetts North, Carolina and New York. CEO Claude Delvecchio is planning to close those factories. We'll get to that in a minute. As you know, apparel sales have been decimated by pandemic closures in April nobody bought clothes whether from Brooks brothers or JC, Penney and other retail casualty, but did you know the actual numbers? Clothing sales fell almost ninety percent in April, according to retail dive, but brooks brothers began looking for a buyer about a year ago. The company operates five hundred stores two hundred of them in the US sales have been flat at about a billion dollars a year since twenty, seventeen, prior to the pandemic bankers estimated the company's value at three hundred to three hundred fifty million dollars. Figure Delvecchio disputed. As, I mentioned the company intends to close its three US factories later this month in the gritty industrial town of. Massachusetts home of its largest factory. Its largest immigrant workforce is being denied severance pay many of those workers, immigrants and refugees women from the Dominican Republic. Vietnam Burma and Nepal have made the company's fine clothing for years so far brooks isn't budging. Despite pleas from the union, and from members of Congress according to the Boston Globe in North Carolina, the factories, the only large employer in the little town of Garland closure would affect that town forever, mayor winifred. Hill, Murphy told The New York Times. In response, CEO, Del Vecchio, says for survival. We must hang onto as much cash as possible, but the globe reports that its chapter eleven filing includes plans to give compensation benefits, severance and bonuses totaling millions to other workers. Brooks brothers will transform, but unlike many of its retail brethren its survival is not in question. In fact, at least one bidder for the company believes it can earn annual revenue of three billion dollars within five years more than triple its current sales, so many buyers are vying for the brand at both the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg used the phrase the races on those making bids. Bids Include Mall Company Simon, property, group, authentic brands, group and W. H. P. Global another bidder is a group of Italian. Investors led by a company called GIO which typically helps fashion companies improve their online presences. The Wall Street Journal possibly with tongue firmly in cheek, considering the state cut of Brooks brothers clothing says Julia wants to quote introduced some European flair to the quintessential American brand. Julia's clients include Armani Maxmara and other designers. Brooks brothers is accepting bids through August fifth, so brooks will survive, but what about it's cheaper? Rival men's warehouse tailored brands which owns men's warehouse and the more upscale Joseph. A. Bank plans to close at least a third of its fifteen hundred stores. It said this month it hasn't filed for chapter eleven protection, but it came close according to CNN. That threat remains even after it stores reopened. Sales have been falling. They were down about eighty percent at Joseph A. Bank in the first week of June, as we all continue to do business in Pajama Pants as we all know nostalgia sells Joseph A. Bank doesn't have nearly the name or the history of Brooks brothers, which drips with nostalgia. Teddy Roosevelt apparently insisted his rough riders. Riders wear the Brand Abe. Lincoln was also a brooks brothers customer, one reason for the bidding war beyond what is sure to be the lowest price anyone ever imagined for the stalwart brand. Is What author Lisa Burn?

And they've got some initiatives that they hope will get the sales growing again, later in the year, for instance, there, they have a partnership with Amazon, where you can return items bought on Amazon to any coal store by July. You'll be able to do that with penny, you know, they've been just in the dumper for long longtime, they've gone through many. Many management changes. They've, you know, since the days of Ron Johnson, the former apple exact who tried to really overhaul that company, they haven't been able to find their footing. They have yet, anew CEO in place, who is just trying to do get some of the basic things right? Like the ordering the right goods marketing them the right way, having, you know, not having too much inventory, and she hasn't fully outlined, what her big strategic vision is for the company yet. So we'll have to wait and see. But that, you know, that has been they've been they've been hurting, and they continued to hurt, but close was the reversal that kind of caught everybody by surprise when we look at other recent retail earnings, WalMart and Macy's both reported growing sales. What's hoped those retailers? Stay ahead of the curve that others haven't been doing. I mean, WalMart's been very aggressive in trying to be competitive with Amazon, you know, they bought jet, they've bought, you know, a whole bunch of companies. They've been spending a lot of money fixing up their stores. Macy's also has been you know, trying. All sorts of new ideas. They bought this company story that they're you know, incorporating into their stores, where like the, the format changes every four to six weeks, the product and the female changes over there, trying to just make their stores, a lot, more exciting. And so they're starting to see a little bit of traction there. And then, you know, of course, the big winner today was TJ X, which owns the TJ Maxx, marshalls discount chains. And they just continued to take share from all the other apparel sellers, their same store. Sales were up five percent you know, every quarter they seem to grow, even more. And you know, it's just they offer this amazing value. You know that's really the name of the game today. What about the ongoing threat of tariffs, we heard from Macy's when they reported earnings that another round could impact the furniture business. What are you hearing from retailers overall about the threat of tariffs? Well, they're obviously all very concerned, and the, the increase recently on the third tranche to twenty five percent from ten percent is starting to eat into. Margin's Cole said, but the big game changer for most retailers will be if this fourth tranche goes into effect that would cover all Chinese imports. And that's what they're all sort of gearing up for they're talking to their suppliers about shifting production out of China. What goods could withstand a price increase. What couldn't what are there any lines? They might have to stop selling. This is like the work..
