Words matter. These are the best Thom Browne Quotes, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.
I’ve always dressed the same. I’ve never made a fashion mistake. I’ve always worn utilitarian. I started my collection because I wanted certain specific things, but before that it was vintage and classic Brooks Brothers.
I always like playing with some sort of typical convention or idea and turning it over.
I think my collection is doing really well, but collaborating is actually just a nice exercise in doing something different. For example, I do things very differently for Moncler that I wouldn’t specifically do for me. For me, I can do whatever I want. With other companies, you have to stay responsible to them.
Every collaboration I do, I feel like I’ve benefitted in so many different ways; it all depends on the organization. With Moncler, there is such a heritage to the brand and to the way that they work. With Brooks Brothers, in the same way, having the heritage to draw from in that collaboration is invaluable.
I’m not Amish, but I grew up in that same area of Pennsylvania and became very attracted to the inherent strictness and uniformity of that community.
Nothing should be perfect. I think that’s the most important thing. I do wear my jackets almost exaggeratedly short. So that’s probably the most mussed up. Along with, you know, not ironing my shirt.
While I think men in general should not fuss over how they look, I do feel as though they should make more an effort to find a way to look good in their own individual, but natural way. I think it’s a shame that it’s become acceptable to wear jeans and a T-shirt to any place and function.
I think guys don’t always realize that clothing that fits is actually more comfortable than clothing that doesn’t fit. I think guys do sometimes wear clothing that is too big.
As a designer, I think you just have to make sure you know what you want and stay true to it. You need to have conviction and really just want to make people think in regards to doing interesting things.
Seersucker and khaki suits are the key to looking put-together in the summer. I also wear shorts year-round. And I would never say never, but I don’t wear sandals. With shorts, it’s wing tips and tennis socks.
My dad was an attorney. The last thing he ever thought about was clothes, and yet somehow he always looked good.
Some people, when they see my shows, leave saying, ‘Who would wear that?’
I like the idea of men’s tailoring on girls. It’s very strong and sexy in a non-overt way.
Designing is so easy – it’s the business that is hard. That’s why you really have to respect Ralph Lauren – look at what he’s done. Anybody who can sustain themselves should be applauded.
I like to maintain my collection as a provocative collection that makes people think. While certainly my stamp will be visible on Black Fleece, it is meant for a wider audience.
I act every day of my life.
I feel like jeans and a T-shirt have become Establishment. Everyone’s dressed down. So actually, putting on a jacket is the anti-Establishment stance.
I’ve always been drawn to the American style in the late ’50s and ’60s.
I want to put concepts in front of people that make them laugh or smile or even hate what I do. I’m not interested in just putting clothes in stores.
I do love the provocative side of my collection, but I also like the classics – the simpler skirts and the sweater sets and the shirtdresses. And I always love to see girls in jackets and trousers.
It’s sad that the cell phone is replacing the watch as a time-telling device. I wear a vintage watch that’s really skinny.
When people have too many choices, they make bad choices.
