Menswear House Podcast Episode Three - Musings on Madison Ave.
After a brief hiatus, the Menswear House Podcast returns this week with Episode Three.
This episode, Jake, Jeff, and Kyle argue what it means to be a classic American brand in the current retail market and whether or not we’re too driven by a nostalgic ideal. Brooks Brothers, JPress, Paul Stuart, and Kamakura are all in the mix as we examine what it is these companies can do to reach new markets while still staying true to their heritage as America’s leading classic brands.
We also call our listeners lazy for liking non-iron dress shirts. I mean, C’MON, just wear a wrinkled shirt you lazy MF’ers.
The Menswear House Podcast Episode One
It’s been quite some time since anyone has really pushed the boundaries in menswear commentary, so the three of us decided to get together and try out a new, more free flowing platform to stretch beyond the reblog culture that seems to dominate right now.
In this first episode, Jake discusses why the Wax-Wane Tumblr didn’t make the cut, Kyle drops some industry knowledge darts about the luxury market bubble, and Jeff defends his rights as a Midwestern outsider.
We hope you enjoy the show and be sure to follow The Menswear House on Tumblr and Twitter. Don’t hesitate to shoot us an email with hatemail, questions about how cool we are, and comments on Jake’s new pair of Nike wovens.
