The Audacity of Dopes: Your Retail Questions Answered

I sort of had no idea what this was supposed to mean:

Consider also the $4,902.45 charge at Atelier New York, a high-end men’s store, presumably for Ms. Palin’s husband, Todd, the famous First Dude.

Karlo Steel, an owner there, said he had gone through the store’s receipts for September, twice, and found no sales that matched that amount, nor any combination of sales that added up to the total. Because the store carries aggressively directional men’s wear, he caters to a small clientèle and knows most of his customers by name, as well as the history of their purchases.

Seriously? What the hell is aggressively directional menswear? Luckily, Alex Balk was as clarifying as ever.
