Animal New York points out that among the merchandise at the Ground Zero Gift Shop is a silk Brooks Brothers tie. According to the catalog description, it "uses the signature colors of the 9/11 Memorial; black, white and bright blue" and costs $79.50. Men, would you wear such a thing? At least it's better that Citarella's "Never Forget" flag made out of shrimp. [Animal New York; Eater NY]
