Silver Is Purple

Eitan: "You are not going to JC Penney with Mom, Dad."
Me: "Oh? Why's that?"
Eitan: "Real men don't shop at JC Penney."
Eitan: "Real men only buy BBQ grills and sports stuff."
Me: "Thank you for clearing that up for me."

For the FYI: Founded in 1907, JCP's 1,106 stores produced $17.8 B of turnover and $389 M of net income for the 12 months ending December 2010. The company employs 156,000 people. While not particularly my style, JCP offers good basics and many a young man bought his first suit here. Many still do.
