Thought you guys might be interested in this. It hasn't hit the news stand yet but should be there in the next week or so. They have distribution of approx. 200,000 copies....so we'll see what happens. http://home.maine.rr.com/jayebay/YRBArticle.pdf I also just got a mention in the refinery 29 blog in NYC. Not a real article.....but every little bit helps. http://www.refinery29.com/editorial/spotlight_men.php

Congrats! I usually check out YRB everytime I come across it. It has been really cool watching your business materialize these past few months.

Said in best (old dude in Pet Sematary) accent: “I really wanted to create the illusion of texture where there is none.” Awesome Jay, congrats.

Thanks everyone......YRB still hasn't hit the new stands. Hopefully soon.....I'm curious to see if I get any action from it.

Very nice spread, Jay, I really liked the interview piece. I'm amused at how they poke fun at you for looking like a lumberjack and talking like a native, but then they get at you for not being modest enough either. Why can't you lumberjacks get down off your fashion high-horse and start living among us normal folk?
Also, I'm going to be in Portland for the next few days and I was wondering if it's worth stopping by your studio on Commercial Street... anything new and interesting on display? For that matter, do you have a storefront or just a workshop? I'd love to get a look at your hoodies but last time I was in Milo they didn't have any.

Hey Alex....Unfortunately this week is a mess for me. I'm in and out of the shop all the time. Do you come to Maine often? I'd be happy to have you stop by my humble shop the next time you are in Maine. I don't have a retail space....just a messy, but functional, workshop on Commercial Street. I don't have any hoodies in Milo because I think the price point might be too high for Portland. Other retailers are selling them for $149. I may throw a few in this fall just to see what happens. I'm good friends with the owner and he has been great about working with me on new stuff. He is pretty much sold out of my stuff right now. I should be restocking him in the next week or so. Let me know when you are in town again and I'll give you the 30 second tour of my space. Just make sure you aren't wearing a bespoke suuit when you come......there is dye and ink everywhere!

That's alright, I don't own many things I would mind getting some ink on. I actually grew up in Portland, I live in Mass. now but my parents still live there so I'm in and out fairly often. And thanks, I will drop you a line next time I'm in town.
