Jean Pigozzi, owner of Meatpacking District streetwear boutique Limoland and wearer of size XXL suits, is apparently just too big for Tom Ford. In December's Vanity Fair, Pigozzi says he told Ford that he "couldn't buy a handkerchief" in his store. The response: "Tom said, 'You know why? I don't want big fat guys like you in my shop' . . . But I think he's making a mistake because big guys like me have the money." Pigozzi is 6'4"; in addition to running Limoland, he's also a venture capitalist. [Page Six]
