    Funny, I was just talking to somebody last night about that scene from Metropolitan.

    Why isn’t Whit Stillman as revered as Noah Baumbach?

    “…the Phineas Cole shop, a line of slimmer men’s clothing that was introduced last year. Phineas Cole is a fictional character, “the rakish, ‘errant nephew’ of Paul Stuart,” according to the store’s promotional material.”

    I like Paul Stuart, but the concept behind the Phineas Cole boutique is somewhat creepy. If I had a ‘rakish, errant’ nephew I’d cut him off from the trust fund until he straightened himself out.

    I heard Phineas is actually in rehab these days.

    The marketing is creepy indeed, but the shop and merch is quite nice.

    Ryan, maybe because while Whit’s movies tend to be charming, Baumbach’s tend to be better movies?

    Speaking of Stillman, why is Last Days of Disco OOP on DVD?

    I’m not sure how I feel about Rugby doing a blog post about “Metropolitan;” dirty or proud?

    Agreed, Trip. Im embarrassed for Rugby. Why reference a movie that lampoons the very culture that RL fetishises. Its like trying to be friends the bully who steals your lunch money. Maybe Irony? But, RL’s never been one for irony.
