Ask the MB -- Men Shopping Like Women

Ask the MB -- Men Shopping Like Women
Q: The September issue of Details magazine is noticing a new trend. For some guys, the go-to reward after a hard day isn't whiskey -- it's Gucci. All of a sudden, men are rewarding themselves the way women always have: with trips to their favorite stores to exercise the Amex. Compulsive shopping isn't just for girls anymore. Check out our story and let me know what you think.
--Jenny, Details magazine

A: Jenny, why sacrifice whiskey for Gucci when an MB can have both? Setting foot in actual stores and interacting with actual people is so last century. Modern times demand multi-tasking: fix a Macallan neat, flip it to Bravo, and shop compulsively online (use the links on our home page) until either a.) you pass out, or b.) you find something cool. Can't lose.
