The result of all this is a conversation that touches on the world of high-end retail, best and worst management practices, mechanical engineering, binary elections, Joe Biden and the Democrat Primaries (no, that’s not the name of a new rock band), “Game of Thrones Girl,” watches, the water in Michigan, Conrad Hilton, and when to leave a department store.
