“The retail atmosphere is OK, but newness is paramount,” said Arnold Zimberg at the ENK Vegas show, staged at the Wynn. “Look at this jodhpur stitch on these pants. What does it do? Nothing. But it gives a guy a reason to say, ‘Oh, that looks interesting.’”
Zimberg reintroduced bottoms to his shirt-driven business for fall — but don’t call them chinos. “Chinos is a terrible word,” he said. “There’s a place called J. Crew where you can get chinos for $60. I sell casual pants. I’m not competing with J. Crew. We’re a fashion house.”
