Mark’s Work Wearhouse has brought in It’s a Brad Brad World’s Brad Goreski in an effort to rebrand itself as a purveyor of casual wear for women as well as working gear for men—an effort that also involves losing the “Work Wearhouse” part of its name and offering yoga gear. Mark’s, as it is now known, has tasked Goreski with speaking about the retailer’s efforts and styling looks—actual looks!—from its fall/winter line.
