There are plenty of "men's-only" stores. Does "the first of its kind" refer solely to a men's only Hermes store? Excuse the ignorance, I didn't read the link and never will. The semantics are shit though.

I think J.Crew is opening a Men's Only store in Tribeca.

I don't get the mens-only appellation. Does this mean that only men are allowed through the door, or will women be allowed in?

How about the fragrances? What if I want to buy a tie and a bottle of Kelly Caleche? Do I then have to track down the corresponding women-only Hermes boutique, and...then what? Do I have to loiter outside the door like a teen waiting outside the stop-and-go in hopes a cool person will buy beer for me?

"Hey, lady, I see you're going in there. Here's $150 - would you get me a bottle of Un Jardin Sur le Nil? Please? It's not for me, I swear. You're cool, right? Please???"

I'll bet the ladies' boutique has more chairs than the men's. Just a guess.

And God help them if there's not a ladies-only boutique. Can you imagine the demonstrations? Busloads of ERA-wimmens-libbers would descend upon the joint like white on rice, demanding equal opportunity for the exclusivity in buying things they too don't need and probably cannot afford.

Are you serious?
It means the only merchandise carried in the stores will be for men.

^^^ Aww it's not so out of the ordinary. Bergdorf uses the same strategy, as does Saks in some cities.

Did I sound serious?

I'm at the office on a Saturday morning, so I post in lieu of cartoons.

edit: BTW, I read the brief article and saw the photo. And then I saw the orange cat tie on the Hermes web site, and it inspired a need I never knew I had, and I don't wear ties much these days. I totally go for whimsy.
