The Observer does Stuart & Wright

What to make of Suzy Hansen's NY Observer article on the new Stuart & Wright boutique on Lafayette Avenue? Part dissertation on brownstone Brooklyn's upscale clothing boutiques and part social commentary on women who shop at these places, it was interesting in that it was written from a female point-of-view, with nary a point on what men's items they carry.

An interesting quote: "women who live in Brooklyn chose 'creative fields' over law or Wall Street. The boutiques make them regret that decision, even though they tailor themselves to the tastes of those who made it...Even freelance graphic designers deserve Diane von Furstenberg."

Another one, in regards to the high price of items: "..Brooklyn shoppers..tell themselvse that living in Brooklyn, an ostensibly money-saving venture, entitles them to some pat-on-the-back spending, a reward for having relocated to this special place."

There was a reference that all the shoppers live on s.portland which, interestingly enough, just got ranked the best block in NYC by Time out:

They've been supernice when I've gone into S&W...what is this story about? Comparing the attitudes of Brooklyn Boutique owners? Commenting on the financial status of Fort Greeners? The racial status of said Fort Greeners? Can someone tell me?

you've got to be kidding me with this place... i walk by it everyday and there's no way i'm going in there until there's something non-pretentious to grasp onto. I could care less about the prices. sorry about your names owners, but "stuart&wright" is lame. more like “stuart&wrong”.

"stuart & wrong"? Creative. However, maybe you should stop in and realize what you are missing out upon and get past identufying a store as "pretentious" since that is just an excuse for "intimidation". The store owners are friendly and there 24/7. You will be talking to either Mr. Stuart, or Ms. Wright, hence the name makes sense to me...
