Soho: Though the triumphant flyer we just received from the folks over at menswear boutique hickey states that "a fresh coat of paint never hurt," we all know that the Grand Street shop wasn't closed down for five months so someone could slap some Sherwin-Williams on those walls. You may recall that the reason for the temporary shuttering was extensive water damage due to a pipe that burst in an apartment about the store, ruining the merchandise and destroying much of the place's interior. Whatever the cause, we're glad they're back open. There are few other stores in Soho where you can pick up a nice fitted suit and a pique polo embroidered with a little marijuana leaf.
