Happy New Year to all!
Found a really great Thom Browne Black Fleece cashmere tennis sweater on eBay. Might have to jump in the bidding game for this one.
I worked at Thom Browne in NYC for a year. I started working right before he opened his first flagship store on Hudson St. so it was still a pretty tight-knit operation. It was really interesting to have such close contact with him everyday and watch his creative process. There was nothing magic to it; he pretty much just did what he wanted to, no matter how strange the idea. I wore suits cut just like this to work everyday, and despite the heckling from folks on the street, I grew accustom to the fit. However, when I see photos like this, or when I see photos of myself during my time working there, I can’t help but laugh at how silly it looks. But hey, more power to the man for doing his thing in spite of the naysayers.
