Score one for the props department; Ralph Lauren Men in the West Village is sporting some major tooth in the way of a giant fake shark. Somehow we doubt that anyone wearing the Hampstons-y whites and preppy cardigans of Lauren's display could endeavor to catch so much as a bass...unless we're talking Chuck Bass here and in that case, it's a Long Island whitefish if you know what we mean.
On the other hand, if you do want to try for some homemade fin soup, shark fishing expeditions leave from Montauk through October, with the Mako, Thresher and Hammerheads sniffing for your chumbucket. Make sure to pack your RL polo jersey.
