My Son, The Prince Of Fashion | GQ
He did it in the hope of attracting the attention of somebody else—somewhere, someday—who was the same. He was not flying his freak flag; he was sending up a flare, hoping for rescue, for company in the solitude of his passion.
“You were with your people. You found them,” I said.
He nodded.
“That's good,” I said. “You're early.”

FREAK FLAG FOR SURE

Removing the Ivy League Stigma: Plimpton on Brooks
In 1993, five-odd years under new owners Marks & Spencer, now widely agreed to have veered the brand drastically off course, Brooks Brothers took out a six-page advertorial in The Atlantic Monthly celebrating its 175 years in business.

Literary heavyweight George Plimpton was hired to write the text, which combines history with everyday goings-on at the Madison Avenue flagship.

A Guide to Men's Clothing
I once heard Al McDonald talk about his early days at the consultancy McKinsey & Company. He joined the firm around 1962 and recalled when, in 1964, during Marvin Bower's final couple years as managing director, Marvin came in one day in a blue shirt. No one at McKinsey had ever worn any shirt color except white until that point - and he said everyone watched closely to see if Marvin would do it again. He did and then blue and white shirts became viable options from that point on.

American Giant hoodie: This is the greatest sweatshirt known to man.
"A basic American Giant sweatshirt costs the factory $12 or more to make—about double what it would cost a foreign factory to make a much lower-quality garment. American Giant pays the factory about $25 to $30 each, and then it sells it to you for $60 and up. Compare this to a model under which you’d buy standard sweatshirt at the mall—say, this $58 Levi’s crewneck. The department store likely buys that shirt from Levi’s for about $30. Levi’s, in turn, pays the factory about $12 to $15 for it, and the factory likely makes it for $6. So you’re paying 10 times what the shirt costs to make, and Levi’s is earning $18 per garment. With American Giant, you’re paying five times what the shirt costs, and American Giant is earning $35. Since there’s no retail middleman, everyone does better under the American Giant model—the clothing company, the factory workers, and you." ... UM, NOT WHEN I CAN PAY $12 FOR THE SWEATSHOP HOODIE SOLD ONLINE

CiroPaone, creator of the luxury dressing in Naples, is an uncompromising perfectionist to cloth as known as supreme craftsmanship in tailoring is his most concern. KITON suit begins with fabric to meet Paone's maxim of "The best of the best + 1". The reason is unquestionable: mediocre cloth reduces the best tailoring to nothing.

"Manufacturers in China, where a suit can be made in about 30 minutes at a cost well below $100, are driving up the price of wool, which increases the prices of fancier fabrics too. " ... SEE

Boosting America, in Her Own Fashion
"Just last week her choice to wear a British-designed red organza dress for the state dinner honoring Hu Jintao, the Chinese president, caused a furor among fashion industry leaders. Oscar de la Renta, Diane von Furstenberg and the Council of Fashion Designers of America all weighed in, saying they were a little disappointed with the first lady for not supporting the American garment industry. In Women’s Wear Daily, Bridget Foley wrote, “To wear something other than American at this particular trade-centric mega-fete embarrasses a major U.S. industry that continues to need all the help it can get.”" ...  I ASSUME THE DRESSES ARE ALL MADE IN OVERSEAS SWEATSHOPS
