More or less correct. My all time favorite "brand" is Jil Sander, so naturally when she left I was very happy after seeing his debut collection for the brand and he has since then has had a very strong performance each season. As for his personal label it is something I've been aware of for quite sometime (his S/S 02 collection with the flares and head scarves is what really "clicked" for me in fashion having spent the prior 6 years in a school uniform I was finally able to take an interest in clothing) and since I've got all the Thom and Jil I wanted for S/S saw things to be a natural fit.
Gayson, you need no worry about Thom. I think he'll be happy with my trunk show reserves for F/W from Bergdorf. It's just the thought of buying and wearing a suit in the balmy NYC summer has limited my recent purchases from him to mainly shirts.
