Every since we heard the news that Black Fleece, designer Thom Browne's collection for Brooks Brothers, would be getting its own Bleecker Street store, we've been dying to find out just where those fitted blazers would land. As far as we can tell, a prime candidate is the 850-square-foot space that currently houses Nusraty Afghan Imports (351 Bleecker/215 W 10th), which is profiled on retail leasing company RKF's site now. When called for comment, the owner of Nusraty Afghan Imports said his store might be closing in a month to be replaced by another (yet-to-be-named) shop, but that "things are still up in the air." Sounds...less than promising. If anyone out there does knows more, do hit up that tipline.
