Why do so many Italian RTW brands not seem to have long sizes?
No love for those of us over the 6ft 1 mark?
It’s like what someone once told me years ago. The guy said to me, “Just pick out nice pieces.” And if you can’t afford it, don’t get a lot of clothes. Get a great blue blazer. Get four pairs of really great charcoal-gray wool slacks. Get the right shoes. Get the right ties. And if you have to save money in the shirt department and go get shirts at — I don’t want to name names — but get a less expensive cotton shirt, save money on that. But don’t buy a lot of clothes; just build a wardrobe. — Alec Baldwin
I don’t particularly care about what other men know or don’t know. I’m not a style evangelist, though some of my busywork involves educational pieces that point out the traditions of menswear or make style suggestions. Over the past couple of years I’ve realized I have almost no interest in what other men are wearing, how much they spent or where they got their clothes, or if they take a medal and knock me off the podium. Since moving to New York I’ve really enjoyed the company of the friends and colleagues I have in menswear, but let’s just say when talking shop with them I lost all compulsion to evaluate what they’re wearing and whether or not I approve. Let others do what they want; the only person whose clothes I’m interested in are my own. — Christian Chensvold
