    I never think of Peter as a Wal-Mart shopper, John. I don’t think he would support a company that has been one of the founding members of the club that is destroying the the middle class and the American economy.

    Plus, thanks to M.J.’s influence, I think he has learned to appreciate well-made clothing–not the drek available on Wal-Mart’s racks. I think he goes to Banana Republic, J. Crew, Eddie Bauer, occasionally Nordstrom’s or Bloomingdales.

    And Tar”j”et.

    And yes, I know, all those stores sell clothing made overseas.

      Peter might go to Nordstrom’s or Bloomingdales, but one he saw the price tags he’ll be out of there faster than you can say “thwip.” I think he’d go to Nerds’R’Us.

      Then again, he is certainly capable of making his own clothing.
