NOLITA AND MIDTOWN—The shirtmakers at Seize Sur Vingt, which has one boutique at 243 Elizabeth Street and one in the Plaza, have decided to deal with the recession as only bespoke shirtmakers can. From an email blast they sent out today: "Maybe the best news is that we're rolling back prices to levels from earlier in the decade (ahh memories). I'm talking $280 for most of the new custom shirts, $150-$180 for most new long-sleeves, and even $108 for new Troglodyte short-sleeves at Groupe. And the amazing new tailored shorts at Groupe are only $130." [Racked Inbox]
