Nordstrom Gift Recommendation Fail

Nordstrom is famous for its superlative customer service, and we commend their buyers for walking a fine line through the luxurious side of practical and the more practical edge of luxury. But damn, do they have terrible taste when it comes to product recommendations. The front page of their men's section today is basically a What Not To Wear, male holiday gift edition. To spell it out, if you're shopping for yourself or any of the gents on your list, here's our advice: Do not buy a $1500 skinny-lapeled off-the-rack Burberry suit. Do not buy a puffer vest. Do not buy a hideous watch from Emporio Armani. Do not buy Uggs. Do not buy anything with a North Face logo on it.
