    After he won the CFDA award, he was much bally-hooed, but then he kind of disappeared. I haven't seen his clothes at Bergdorf's in over 2 years. And I never seemed to see anyone buying his clothes. I don't know what the exact story is, but I assume he just decided to close up shop. His clothes didn't seem to be doing too well. I never personally bought anything made by him.

    thanks for the information
    i had assumed he closed up shop despite the praise and money backing he had
    i do own two of his shirts, one cotton, one linen, very well constructed and well tailored - sort of traditional stuff with modern tailoring

    in any event, i thought he was going to do well but i guess look what happened to oldham and john bartlett as well

    For a bit of gossip: last I heard, Matt Nye was dating Jann Werner from Rolling Stone magazine, I think.

    you are correct, he and jann wenner have been a couple for a good number of years (as i understand, wenner provided all the backing for his fashion outing and given the amount of money wenner has, that's what surprises me about matt nye having 'disappeared' off the fashion scene)
