Get your fourth point of contact to 138 W 10th St in the Village. You should have to pay admission. Unless you show proof of getting it. If you dig the Tommy, Ralph and Mickey show - best to stay away. If you're fluent in authentic. You're gonna be very happy here. There's even a sale going on.
When a designer slaps the 3rd Infantry Regiment patch on a pair of cargo shorts - - you can rest assured they don't get it. Even though they have a legal department that should. A legal department whose motto should read, "Better to beg forgiveness than ask permission."
You will find no apologies here. This is home to a soul shaking realness that - today - few seem to understand. It reeks of an intelligence, wit and sophistication that will, if you're brave enough to enter, change how you look at clothing and perhaps yourself.
The expression, "He's all hat and no horse" is apt for those who think nothing of slapping badges and patches on themselves. That they didn't earn it isn't nearly as bad as, they don't even know what it is. It's a sad commentary about today but I beg you to stop by and see Grahame's shop. If for nothing else - to offer us all hope in the face of this.
