Hey, gidday mates! I’m reporting to you live from Paris, having left Milan yesterday afternoon on the fashion flight with every 17 year old male model, a bunch of menswear editors, and Jenny. Now I’m sitting in the living room of my Montmartre apartment listening to Good Charlotte with Jenny and Kat Irlin of @kat_in_nyc fame, who arrived from New York at 5:00 this morning. Those two are talking too much for me to be able to concentrate properly on writing this blog post, so without further ado, here are a bunch of photos shot on our last day of shows in Milan, and which appeared in GQ, British Vogue and Vogue Paris, and WWD.

Every guy I’ve gotten the chance to interview for GQ‘s 10 Essentials series has been exciting, but I must say that getting the chance to spend half an hour with Frank Muytjens one rainy afternoon in New York was a particular highlight. I’m an unabashed J.Crew fan, I wear the brand every day, and I really do believe that Frank has helped usher in a new era of menswear whereby it’s now acceptable for guys to care about fit and fabrication.Click to Continue!
Last week it was Richard Haines, this week it’s Richard James. The British can be a a stuffy bunch at the best of times, so you can only imagine the frosty reception afforded to Welsh-born Richard James when he opened his contemporary tailoring boutique at 37a Savile Row in 1992. James ushered in a new movement in Savile Row style, full of color, celebrities, and controversy; never one to shy away from making a statement — he dressed Dustin Hoffman and Robert de Niro in camo suits for the cover of a magazine in 1998 — one of his first majorClick to Continue!
