For years, like many of you, I’ve been a massive fan of Derek Guy, the author of the popular site, Die! Workwear.
Derek is a writer and personality unlike any I’ve ever known in the industry. It’s not because of how he dresses – because good luck finding a picture of him anyway – but his writing is often from a historical perspective and reminds us how we dress connects to our culture. Every time I read his work, I walk away enlightened.
So I asked him about the resurgence of #menswear, something I’m ecstatic about and hopeful for – his answer was not what I expected, but after re-listening, it’s what I needed to hear.
Derek and I discuss how dressing is a social act, the psychology of clothing, and philosophy of menswear.
