By Jove: The Biz Buzz
Aha weekly tidbits for the HT Insider
Well, just when we thought the “new black” was going from grey to pink – news has it that new black is ….BLACK. Of course for those of you haven’t noticed, black actually is the color of choice at FIT with both students and faculty. I guess it must be that urban thing but I know I stand in front of a rack, and see all sorts of colors. What do I buy? The black. How about you?
WSJ Magazine, December 2013/January 2014. Check out this super layout.
Speaking of the WSJ, there was a great article last weekend on the surge in the men’s footwear business. Almost 2 full pages devoted to styles, care, shopping habits, etc. In fact, according to the Journal, men are starting to outpace women in building a full shoe wardrobe. This is no surprise to us as the real excitement in the market both wholesale and retail right now is men’s. http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303497804579242313439812406 If you haven’t checked out the re-done menswear floors at Lord where it is calm and well edited with great values. Go to the 9th and 10th floor and you will a full selection for all the men in your life, plus if you are a younger guy, there is lots of stuff for you. I promise. Don’t forget that HT is offering more and more menswear related courses these days and all of Spring is now available on line.
If you haven’t had a chance to see the current HUE, the FIT alumni magazine there is a wonderful extensive article on tattoos that really connects with a post I made quite a while ago that we still get comments on. Check it out. http://www.fitnyc.edu/3636.asp.
