'The Shop' at The Standard may be located in a hotel, but it's anything but your average amenities shop. In an interview with Haute Living, Keith Harris, the store's retail manager, admits most of their business is driven by locals and the store only orders one of everything, which solely includes sizes 36, 38 and 42. So that means there's only one pair of Cutler and Gross transparent sunnies, one pair of size 36 Sundek swim trunks and one luxe Eres one-piece in a teeny size. Nice. [Haute Living]
