Bloomingdales 59th Street has finally pulled back the plywood to reveal their new men's contemporary section that's named, charmingly, "No. 59 Metro." "Women's has been kicked upstairs, which is probably fine for its customers who often complained about being banished to a dungeon-like department in the bowels of the store. That dungeon has been totally gutted and opened up to house an ever proliferating roster of denim brands and the casual separates that go with them. It also currently holds an abundance of new, eager, sometimes over-eager sales associates as well as a team of spritz girls who really, really want you to try the new Diesel fragrance."
