This week's Critical Shopper column takes Jon Caramanica to Leisure Life NYC, a Clinton Hill shop that "offers a savvy read on what a mature hip-hop aficionado would want to wear in middle age." This seems best exemplified by the Leisure Life house line, which features a varsity jacket with goatskin armbands, "the exact right sort of varsity jacket to wear to let everyone else wearing a varsity jacket know that you see right through them."
