NEW YORK — Hermès clearly isn’t worried the luxury customer might be cutting back.
In a big bet the wealthy will keep spending, the French luxury brand is doubling its presence on Madison Avenue with the opening of its first men’s-only store in the world. And this being Hermès, price is no object — the store’s offering ranges from signature Hermès silk ties to an Hermès baseball at $1,100 and glove at $8,500, to custom leather jackets with a starting price of $50,000.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
