It's always an extra special treat when New York Magazine offers up a Video Look Book. In this one, Phillip Leeds, who might be a stylist or something of that nature, stands in an alley and and shows off his merchandise. Unfortunately, we're talking about actual merchandise: specifically, a Bathing Ape sweatshirt. So, yeah, he's pretty fucking cool, in spite of his speech impediment. Who knows, maybe speech impediments are the new hotness! After the jump, Intern Alexis rounds up Erica Warnock, Maura Johnston, and Andy Stokan to weigh in on this important issue.
