The Times Gets Spooked by West Village ‘Clichés’

The West Village Jack Spade store.

The Times' Jon Caramanica checked out the Jack Spade store in the West Village, where he was quickly overwhelmed to find that all the West Village stereotypes were true: "A gentleman in a seersucker suit with unlaced saddle shoes (and no socks) stomped by, gripping a folded newspaper. He looked stern." Sockslessness is one thing, but he drew the line at flared man-jeans. "Some guys in boot-cut jeans who looked as if they’d just gotten off the JetBlue from Burbank looked around, eyes wide ... I walked to the train and got out of there." [NYT]
