A) My mother worked in the fashion industry (in NYC) and every story she has involves everyone smoking. B) I no longer live in the city. Okay with those two pieces out of the way (even if NYC is your only frame of reference) is there class status/fashion-able status attributed to one brand or the other? I like Nat Sherman cigarettes. But that has never really impressed anyone But then again I don't start shouting "OH FUCK THAT IS LOW CLASS" if someone starts smoking Black & Milds at a party...so maybe people just don't care either way. Your thoughts?
