“There’s lots of good product out there and we have to find something that our customers don’t already have,” said Mike Zack, owner of Circa 2000 in Plano, Tex., who liked the “neat outerwear, great woven shirts” from Haupt and others, and the technical fabrics and details at the show. He also “cherry-picked” pieces, noting: “We’re buying items here and there.”
