Pick up the other kind of workwear—along with the shirts and ties you'll need to look the part—at 25 percent off, in-store and online. Better get them now though, before the suit market rebounds.

The Weekend Starts Here
The weekend is always a sound investment.
The West Side beef obsessives finally give us something to nibble while we're barside. The small plates include Fried Mac & Cheese, Wagyu Tartar and the overstuffed Fried Oysters with Smoked Coleslaw. Now that we think about it, maybe "small" is the wrong word...
We're big fans of Philippe North, as we call it, but the chance to get the same menu at son-of-Philippe downtown saves us a cab ride or two. We especially like the idea of ordering our Peking Duck through a high-tech touchscreen kiosk...or if we're feeling old-fashioned, a phone.
The Financial District's favorite watering hole drowns its sorrows in mollusk and grog. There'll be upwards of 20,000 oysters there, so you should be fine as long as Kobayashi doesn't show up.
The workwear experts open up a second location with the same charcoal suits and argyle cardigans they have in Soho. Here's hoping they bring the biweekly cookouts with them too.
