A TAX CUT WE CAN ALL GET BEHIND: A question spurred by my visit to Brooks Brothers today on my lunch hour--under current New York taxes, clothing items and shoes costing less than $110 are no longer subject to sales tax. So why did I have to pay sales tax on the four pairs of silk knot cuff links I purchased today (4 pairs for $20!)? Aren't they clothing items as well? I mean, aren't cuff links essential to the wearing and operation of french cuff shirts?
