Here's an extra reason to make sure you actually hang everything back up after trying it on. Last week, Giorgio Armani dropped by the Armani Exchange in Soho to chat with customers about their potential purchases, and even talked one customer into a puffy coat she wore out of the store. Granted, if Armani himself says you look good in something then you should probably plunk down your card, but we've got a feeling at least one person in that store had to think he was just a genuine ol' New York crazy, pestering a customer.
