The Suit Peddler, 47th/5th, 11/15/06

"Men's suits! Men's suits! Armani, Zegna, Versace!" Buyer beware. While some of the suits sold at these places throughout the city do contain authentic merchandise (albeit it sell-off from 3 years ago) some companies like Canali and Zegna are sending scouts out to investigate and are finding that some stores are indeed selling fake suits.

That exact guy asked me if I wanted to buy a Zegna (z-egg-nah?) suit last weekend.

If he was selling real suits he wouldn't be wearing the same damn coveralls every day.

Well he is just the guy they pay to stand out there and hand out pamphlets.
Similar to the people who carry around menus on the corner of where a resturant might be down the block. If they bring someone in or when someone pays and shows their little card they might get some sort of spiff for getting a customer in there.
