The Wall Street Journal yesterday published a piece about the proliferation of largely unregulated (yet) fashion trucks popping up across the country. (They are basically big vans where you can buy clothes.) Entrepreneurs love them, brick and mortar types believe they need regulations to level the playing field, and it's an ongoing issue in New York, Boston, and San Francisco. The good news is, it looks like city officials are willing to work with the trucks, so they won't disappear anytime soon. [Racked Boston]
