We’re getting there.  Inch by inch, we’re getting there.  It’s been a slow haul, but piece by piece, we’re getting there.  So, without further ado, please welcome the inaugural starting line up for the 2013 Carson Street Clothiers.

Patrick Doss, Operations Manager

Hailing from Savannah, GA, Patrick brings with him tailoring and retail experience from his time spent at Sid Mashburn in Atlanta and Suit Supply in New York.  Refined and sophisticated, Patrick is the embodiment of the American southern gentleman.  He’s a real life “Stump the Schwab” when it comes to the menswear scene.

Christopher Benjamin (“CB”) Rucker, Client Relations Manager

If you follow men’s fashion blogs, then you undoubtedly know the name.  A Suit Supply (New York) and GANT (D.C.) veteran, CB, a.k.a. “Mr. I Make This Look Good,” is a master of casual tailoring, making the most formal of looks feel dressed down and cool.  Originally from South Bend, IN, CB routs for Notre Dame, but we won’t hold that against him.

Christopher Fenimore, Sales Associate

We had our qualms about hiring two Christophers—we wanted to hold tryouts (our operations are small, but there’s a lot of potential for aggressive expansion)—but we were just too impressed by this young man’s ability and verve for all things menswear.  A Brooklyn native and junior at The New School, Christopher has shot street style for online publications such as Four-Pins and has worked retail while remaining a full-time student.  What did you do in college?

Brian Trunzo and Matt Breen, Co-Owners

From Staten Island, NY and Bucks County, PA, respectively, Trunzo and Breen are former attorneys, sometimes style bloggers and all-the-time nice guys.  Growing tired and unimpressed with the world of corporate law while simultaneously becoming bored with the usual brick-and-mortar NYC menswear options, they decided to make good on a promise they made while law students (that is, to someday go into business together).  After studying the menswear landscape and researching the state of men’s retail both in NYC and online, Trunzo and Breen decided to go all in, and the rest is, as they say, history.

It’s all happening.

A sneak preview of some new leathers that we recently developed. Like our current leather assortment, these hides have also been developed to capture a durable yet soft “hand” that is unique to Libero Ferrero; a look and feel that will only improve with time…Coming very soon on new product, big and small.

One trend that you hope dies in the New Year?
Ariel: Trends in general. Men should start focusing on timeless clothing.
Shimon: All trends die; it’s just a matter of time. I’m getting a little tired of all this camo.

Esquire just came out with the end-all-be-all of end-of-the-year menswear questionnaires, and of course Ariel and Shimon provide my favorite answer.

Anonymous asked: What are your thoughts on The Skinny Tie Movement - do you think it will prevail?

There’s a Movement? With a capital “M” and everything? 

No, I don’t think it will prevail. Let’s all just agree to hover around a nice 3” width and call it a day. 

From my interview with Andre 3000. Read the rest at Esquire.com.

“I just try things. And the things I like, sometimes they work, and sometimes they don’t. You can look at pictures where I just look terrible. But the older I get, the more I know what works. It’s for the better.”
