Millard "Mickey" Drexler is pumped up and for good reason. He's touring the Madewell flagship in New York's SoHo, seeing it for the first time stocked with merchandise and dissecting the presentation.
"This is the vision played out," Drexler said on Friday at the 3,500-square-foot space, which opens today at 486 Broadway on the corner of Broome Street. The store is in an 1883 Romanesque Revival brick building that decades ago housed the Mechanics and Traders' Bank of Manhattan.
