Thomas Horodecki, a manager at Elie Tahari, has filed a $2 million lawsuit against the company for forcing him to work in—wait for it—New Jersey. "It was the smog. It was depressing driving to Jersey," Horodecki tells the NY Post. "The traffic was horrendous on Route 4, and they are pretty bad drivers. The stores are kind of cheesy for the most part. New York City has everything when it comes to fashion, especially Saks. And when it comes to styling, let's just say Jersey is difficult. Fashion it is not!" [NY Post, via The Cut]
