The Times Does Penney's For A Second Round

August 24, 2009 by SheFindsSusannah

Over the weekend The New York Times addressed its own article from freelancer Cintra Wilson, covering the new Manhattan J.C. Penney.  The original article was more or less universally viewed as a particularly New York brand of condescension, a rude attack on the store.

The rebuttal, by Clark Hoyt, notes the level of insult: Hoyt quotes the Times’ managing editor, Bill Keller, who mentioned that his mother was a Penney’s shopper, and she would have found Wilson’s review “snotty.”

While we don’t particularly feel Wilson’s pain about not being able to find a size 2 anywhere in the store, the reason we most agree with the Times’ rebuttal is that, hey, Penney’s has indeed been stepping up its game.

Just check out the great blazer we found.  It’ll get you into the second article’s camp in no time.

There’s more out there to get you in the mood for fall, from J.C. Penney or not – peruse our guides to the best leather jackets, trench coats, and foldover boots.
