Letter from NYC

Yesterday I randomly checked in at Silence of The City, which I mentioned some time ago, and noticed something surprising. I don't know if I missed this before or what, but the most recent entry there is by none other than friend-of-this-site Sari Wilson! Go there and read her piece "Measuring Up" right away. It begins like so:

On select Sunday evenings, Brooke Cenicola, a manager of the lingerie shop Linda's, sends around energetic emails with subject headers like “It's Time Again for Bra School” and “What? . . . Bra School?” Cenicola is putting out the call for models for her weekly school held at Linda's Soho location (motto: "Love Hurts, Your Bra Shouldn't"), a spacious duplex packed with lingerie and swimwear from the likes of Rosa Cha, Moschino, and Cosabella. Cenicola began the school to train Linda's sales staff in the discriminating and subtle art of bra fitting.

Come on. You want to read the rest don't you?
