THE LUXURY OF LINGERIE
Victoria's Secret aside, apparel retailers like Limited and Express, Lane
Bryant and Ann Taylor, among others feature corsets, fancy bras and camisoles, all meant to be seen as well as worn, to their merchandise assortments this year.
Express stores now carry pearl decorated halter tops, satin bra tanks, and several sheer lace blouses
through which a bra would clearly be exposed. Express is a unit of Limited Inc., which owns an 84-percent stake in Intimate Brands.
Even Lane Bryant stores, the plus-size apparel unit of Charming Shoppes Inc., feature lace and satin
bustiers, as do shops run by Ann Taylor Stores Corp.

I'm sending this card to tell you
That taxes have taken away
The things that I really needed --
My workshop, my reindeer, my sleigh,
Now I'm making my rounds on a jackass,

It's cause I'm out on my ass in the snow.

Ripples of Sept. 11 Widen in Retailing
Small businesses throughout New York City and across the nation have experienced a potentially devastating
drop in sales since Sept. 11.
on West Eighth Street in Greenwich Village, shoe salesmen stand forlornly
on the sidewalk in front of Leather&Shoes.com, smoking cigarettes
and staring blankly into the distance,
wondering where all the customers have gone.

Hi, I bought some 87%cotton/13%lycra boxer briefs from J. Crew over a year ago -they no longer
carry them and were unable to provide any information as to original mfgr. or similiar items. The
boxer briefs are all black, no fly, 1 and 1/2 inch waist, and are tagged made in Israel. Can you
provide any information regarding mfgr. or similiar product (I like the relatively high content of lycra
- absolutely the most comfortable and long wearing underwear I have ever owned).
