Put This On just aired a video of their second season, which starts in NYC.
Dallas Penn – Lo Heads
First, Jesse Thorn met with Dallas Penn from the Lo Heads – a group of Polo Ralph Lauren worshipers who have been collecting his clothing since the 1980s. Until now, I had not been aware of this group, but it made me realize how successful Ralph Lauren was in advertising to a broad range of society. For me, it is a perfect example that clothes alone – or the brand, for that matter – do not make the man. Different people can be perceived very differently even though they wear the exact same clothes. Personally, I find it very surprising to see that a brand can become so defining of one’s personality. I believe that even a great brand does not always equal great style. What do you think about this?
Worth & Worth Hats NYC
Mr. Thorn then pays a short visit to Worth & Worth hats, where we meet owner and hatmaker Orlando Palacios. The video shares a little bit about hat basics, but we do not really learn how a hat is made.
Jason Marshall – Jazz Saxophinist
Afterwards, we learn a bit about jazz saxophonist Jason Marshall and his style.
How To Pack a Suit
Last but not least, Jesse explains how to fold a suit. While I do agree with him on the way he folds the trousers, I do not like the way he folds the jackets – it seems to unnecessarily wrinkle the sleevehead on one side of the shoulder. Considering that this is a common packing problem for men like you and me, we’ll do some research and let you know what we find out! Until then, you can watch the video below – especially the last minute.
