Is it just us or is that mannequin on the right seriously channeling Vogue editor-at-large Hamish Bowles? The windows of Ralph Lauren's menswear shop on Bleecker Street are sporting what looks to be the Ivy League thrift shop style, which is actually one of Ralph's favorite themes. In addition to the cable-kint sweaters with fake crests, we're seeing actual trophies and pennants. It's displays like this that make us wonder at all the crap that is produced purely as props; surely Ralph should hold an annual yard sale?
