The New Black to Menswear

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.

Looking for that last minute gift? How about a HOT TOPICS course?  Gift Certificates are available.  Go to D130, open through Friday afternoon at 5:30pm or http://bit.ly/1bYBlT1.
