Brad Pitt's Red Carpet Drip, Sandlercore, & Babenzian's J.Crew is Finally Unveiled
Support the pod by supporting this week's sponsors: RITUAL - www.ritual.com/clubcool ZOCDOC - www.zocdoc.com/clubcool VIZZY HARD SELTZER - www.vizzyhardseltzer.com/washed After some technical difficulties and a multitude of scheduling conflicts, Phil and I were finally able to bang out two sessions for this extra-long 'sode. We had a great time and found ourselves meandering throughout, but the main topics were as follows: 1) Brad Pitt is crushing custom looks (shouts to Haans!) on the press tour for Bullet Train including an instantly-infamous brown linen skirt followed up by a tailored rig anchored with Gucci Gazelles. 2) Apparently, #Sandlercore was a dominant TikTok trend with GenZ girls last summer, but this summer, it's resurgence has just made us feel better about looking like a slob, like, most of the time. 3) Everybody's talking about it, so of course, we had to add our two cents. Brendon Babenzian's J.Crew is finally here. Join us on Patreon at www.patreon.com/clubcool

We talked about the suiting looks we saw at the Grammys, specifically the proliferation of double breasted rigs and how the style has migrated from an IYKYK swerve to a mainstream move. Should a DB be next on your cop list or does its current ubiquity signal that it's already on the downslope? Of course, we also had to address the Biebs' oversized Balenciaga number. Next up, I walk Phil through a couple of recent purchases from SSENSE that are definitely getting returned.

The Sneaker Situation with Dejan Pralica, Co-Founder & CEO of SoleSavy
Need a quality doctor that can see you on your schedule and take your insurance? We all know how difficult that can be, but ZOCDOC makes it easy. Support this week's sponsor at www.zocdoc.com/clubcool On this week's podcast, I had the pleasure of interviewing the co-founder and CEO of SoleSavy, Dejan Pralica. From the company's origin story to what makes the SoleSavy experience unique, DP laid it all out for us. DP remains an avid sneakerhead with an incredibly collection of over 500 sneakers so I also made sure to get his thoughts on the current state of sneaker culture. What's next on his cop list? What brands should we be paying closest attention to this year? Does becoming a Dad mean you never get to cop again??? We got the answers to all of these questions and more.

Phil joins me in the studio on a Friday afternoon, and I proceed to talk at him for an hour. First up, I give him the rundown from my most recent mall experience. What was good? What was bad? What's the heritage "mall brand" that's usurping J.Crew as the de facto recommendation for stylish guys looking for inexpensive pickups? What is happening at the food court? All those questions and more get an answer. Then, I highlight some "new" brands that I'm really feeling this year. Phil adds his classic doses of incredulity and banter, per uje.

Breaking Down LVMH's Investment in ALD & Creative Director Appointments
Get better sleep and reduce those stress levels with this week's sponsor: Headspace @ www.headspace.com/clubcool On this week's pod, Clayton and I offer our insight in to this week's big news: LVMH's "Luxury Ventures" arm has made a minority investment in Aimé Leon Dore. We give our initial reactions, then dive deep on what this could mean for the brand in the near and long term. After a lengthy discussion, we turn our attention to another fashion world development: Rhuigi Villaseñor of Rhude has been named Creative Director at Bally. On the surface, this seems like a head-scratching move for one of streetwear's biggest names so we do our best to figure out why it actually might make a lot of sense before offering up some other names in the space that we expect to be up for similar or even bigger appointments in 2022 and beyond.

2022 Outlook: What We're Dropping, What We're Loving, & What We're GORPing
~~~ Find a VIZZY retailer near you at www.vizzyhardseltzer.com/WASHED ~~~ On today's podcast, Clayton Chambers joins me on the pod for his third appearance but first as an official co-host of the show. Phil and I spoke about our style resolutions last week, so this week Clayton and I continue that conversation by hashing out the things we're leaving behind in 2021. Minimalist basics, tailored button ups, topcoats, and even hoodies got put on the chopping block so you'll have to tune in to find out what actually got axed. From there, we move on to gas up the brands we're really focused on in Q1 and Q2 of this year but not before dissecting what on earth is happening with Arc'teryx at the moment. Is it the first brand to ever be memed to death? I have some questions, and Clayton has some answers. So yeah, winter is top of mind, but spring drops are headed this way, and we discuss several brands we'll have an eye on, some of which you've definitely heard of, others maybe not so much. Throughout the entire pod, the rise of GORPcore was a constant touch point, as were Clayton's 2022 predictions which you can find on his Twitter thread here.

We talked about the slew of legendary artists that stopped by Tyler, The Creator's Golf le Fleur pop-up shop in Malibu which sent us in a bunch of different directions, including one that ending up invoking Nelly's clothing line from the early 2000s, Vokal. Next up, more Succession talk, specifically about how you can balance that Amalfi-Coast-vacation-suit look with one that works for business environments stateside.
