It’s New York Fashion Week and The Dropcast is back with a star-studded banger. Noah Thomas is off in Las Vegas celebrating his recent wedding to his stripper wife Cinnabon Lexus, so Jeff Carvalho steps in and talks about his vintage shopping addiction. In proper intervention fashion, we brought in Grailed editor-in-chief Greg Babcock and Nordstrom VP of Men’s Fashion Sam Lobban to talk him into buying some new gear for once.
Sam talks about Nordstrom’s latest “New Concepts” store, featuring exclusive gear from Kim Jones’ debut Dior Men’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection, including some fire pieces from the Dior x KAWS collab. Greg mostly just talks about why he grew a mustache that makes him look like a cop.
We asked listeners to weigh in with their thoughts on the most underrated NYC brand, and got flooded with comments and voicemails voicing support for Brigade USA. Shouts to their street team and seed us some stuff for all this free press! We also talk about upcoming sneaker trends and why a lot of us are wearing more formal kicks these days.
As always, we welcome your comments and thoughts on THE DROPCAST Hotline. Call us at 833-HIGHSNOB (833-444-4766) and tell us about why you love Brigade USA or plug your own brand. It might work as well for you as it did for the Brigade guys. This episode was not sponsored by Brigade USA—but maybe it will be in the future!
