I haven’t been into the Supreme store on the corner of Manhattan’s Bowery and Spring streets, and I never visited the old one on Lafayette.

It’s not that James Jebbia’s skateboard and streetwear shop—an almost reductive way of describing the billion-dollar brand that sells everything from boards and clothing to fire extinguishers and dirt bikes—is without allure. Supreme appeals even to a man like me, who has trouble keeping his balance in the shower.
