STORE WARS: Macys vs. Target
Starting March 15th and running through April 4th, Dappered.com is hosting a bracket based tournament with the purpose of eventually crowning the all around Affordable Men’s Style Retail Champ for 2011. For a full introduction see this post. For the full bracket, click on the image to the right. Feel free to make a case for your preferred competitor in the comments section, but don’t forget to vote at the bottom of each match up. On with today’s showdown:
Strengths: Versatility. Accessibility. Balance of affordable yet still nice. Their One Day Sales. Their strong in-house brand Alfani Red. Good sub $300 suits. Levi’s that go on sale a lot. Some INC offerings. The 20% off monthly coupons they send card members. Decent watches. A good place to find your significant other a gift.
Weaknesses: Their shoe department. Macys.com can get a little clunky and shipping can be steep. Sometimes those coupons come with a boatload of exclusions. And seriously, when are they NOT having some kind of sale?
Strengths: Incredibly inexpensive but still has some good looking stuff. Their Mossimo tees and polos. Their Merona dress shirts aren’t half bad either.
Weaknesses: Lack of quantity and variety in fitted clothing. Quality can be an issue. Can feel like an upscale WalMart. Most have a weird snackbar. Lots of kids running around.
Your votes determine who moves on to the next round. Cast your ballot below:
UPDATE: And Macy’s moves on with a convincing win.
