Yes it is.

But they've been on the decline for quite a while. These are the death throes.

The end of this current BB era is not like the end of the previous BB era, or the end of the BB era before that.

Indeed, a long decline.

Interesting times.

Brooks filed for Chapter 11 the other day. So I guess we'll just have to wait and see what, if anything, emerges from the rubble.

Best case: A leaner operation that focuses on proper button-down collar shirts and the like.

Worst case: A mall brand with a classic name offering mostly crap. Which is pretty close to what it is now.
