The first rule of Fight Club is...YOU DON'T MESS WITH THE NIPON WOMEN.

Behold Vogue 2640 by Albert Nipon:
These two are late 80s "XRay Women" straight out of Tom Wolfe's Bonfire of the Vanities, don't you think? But don't let the refined setting (a tony luncheon club on the Upper West Side, perhaps?) fool you. Arms akimbo, they stand ready to drive a bony elbow into your side...or, if things get really serious, to do some damage with those pointy stiletto heels.
Waif-thin or not, don't underestimate these women. They're tough. Sure, their Master of the Universe husbands may trade millions daily on the stock market, but these Nipon women know that's nothing. After all, this is a pattern that calls for seven rows of topstitching! SEVEN ROWS. If that doesn't take nerves of steel, I don't know what does.
