New York Lexicon Definition 2: Faux'l

Faux'l (noun; contraction of "faux" + "cool")

  • The deluded sense of "I'm cool" that descends upon one while wandering the streets of Soho, as if one could absorb all the cool that emanates from the stores there.
I felt faux'l this morning while I walked home from Soho, thinking I might be cool even though I was wearing Old Navy jeans.
