Lifestyle enhancement for the socially inept

Many hackers and other creative types have limited or zero social skills, which limits their interactions with the 'real' world. What's needed is a store where they can interact with understanding salespeople who can not only set them up with some stylin' threads but who can teach them the basics of social interaction. Thus: Nerdstroms, half clothing store, half social skills training to help customers move up the corporate ladder with confidence.

       // interact with understanding salespeople //   

       Why ? The whole point is that they don't want, or percieve they have a need for, direct interaction with "people". Online shopping is just fine. They don't want or need "stylin' threads" as they aren't interested in meeting anyone who is so boring and shallow as to care about what form an outer garment takes. The money is much better allocated to the aquisition of more technology. Humans interested in appearances are invariably vain and stupid and unworthy of notice.
