For this week's Critical Shopper, Jon Caramanica stopped by Ale et Ange on Rivington Street. There, he spent a lot of time pondering the shirts: "Like many of Ale et Ange's shirts, it seemed designed to be worn untucked, but holds its own when tucked in, which flips the typical paradigm of a shirt meant to be tucked, but which more or less works untucked. Carefree, not careless." [NYT]
