Mike Albo thinks the West Village used to be so much cooler, but he likes it better now that Odin is there. Among Odin's pricey, "spiffed up work-wear" he fell in love with a rumpled Oliver Spencer tweed that reminded him of Rex Harrison, and a lumberjack shirt that made him look "like a cast member of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.” As Albo clearly wants to live in an old-time movie, it comes as no great surprise that he did not like the hipster horizontal-stripe T-shirt or the Comme des Garçons sweater with a big heart on it.
