That's me. Well, thank you kindly.

He's certainly an eccentric dresser - verging on the dandy. Nothing wrong with that of course. Well, not in my book anyway.

I'm an American buyer so I'm here for work but I also happen to love it. Pitti is an incredible experience. It's kind of like all the best parts of Styleforum in real life; passion about clothing, seeing all sorts of interesting new things, learning a ton, and a comunity of fascinating friendly people, with none of the closed mindedness and negativity that the Internet breeds.

Over the past few fairs Eric, Erica, and I have become close friends. Erik takes a lot of pictures and we're often together so I end up in too many of them.

I have a somewhat historical take on dressing with a bit more flair than the forum tends to prefer (not that I care.) I attempt to stay just this side of costume. Sometimes I am more successful than others.

^ He is in the biz in Detroit. You guys - wait until you see him live some day. The presence is stunning. One of my favourite new aqquintances at PU89.

EFV Many thanks, great photos every day!

Thanks @Mr. Claymore for your clarification. I thought your day 1 outfit was indeed verging on costume, but if that's your interest, what better place to do it than Pitti?

 

With your facial hair, you do bear more than a passing resemblance to famous 19th-century Czech composer Antonin Dvorak -

 

 

He did live in the States for a few years (hence the "New World" Symphony and the "American" Quartet). Checked your family tree recently?

Met him last week in London here: our American members "Mr Claymore" and "poorsod" happened to be in town. So a London contingent consisting of "Cantabrigan" and yours truly met up with them. We we were also joined by the two rising stars of the bespoke shoe trade, Daniel Wegan (G&G) and Nicholas Templeman.

I think, I can speak for all participants and say it was a very enjoyable evening. Mr Claymore is a lovely guy and (not only by the way he dresses) a larger than life character.

Yeah it was nice meeting you in London too. I notice from the pictures that Mr Claymore packed a lot of hats!

I am quite the opposite. I try to travel with carry ons only.

T-Michael is a tailor from Bergen, Norway. He co-founded Norwegian Rain with the other bearded fellow.

I want to see more of that casual suit you wore on Wednesday. Awesome stuff.

Mr. Claymore - a.k.a the KGB of #menswear. Knew a disturbing amount of facts about me although we never met before. smile.gif

Great to meet you!

Great to meet you!

Ha! It was a pleasure to meet you as well.

Come on now, don't say KGB. That'll make everyone nervous. All the information was revealed "willingly."
