Lord and Taylor Names $10,000 Winner in
Student Stylist Competition

NYT February 21, 2012
"...the value of simple, easily understood brand names has escalated in the Internet era because consumers are more likely to find such products while doing searches on the Web."

The man who redifined Lord and Taylor passes from the scene, Joseph Brooks. "[Brooks] told The NY Times in 1976 that he viewed Lord and Taylor as a store [for] people with good taste and understated elegance who like to buy
investment clothes. .........
investment clothes, [meaning] expensive things that would last
and could be worn for special occasions year after year."
