ANDREW CHEN IN MELBOURNE
Andrew Chen, co-founder of New York-based 3sixteen, a contemporary menswear label with a focus on raw denim, was in Melbourne last week to launch his concept store in collaboration with MINI Paceman. I had a chance to sit with him over a round of scotch (or a least he did and I attempted) to talk about his own personal style, what makes the perfect jean and how to avoid crotch blowouts. Enjoy!
JARED ACQUARO IN MELBOURNE
I came across Jared’s style blog A Poor Man’s Millions a few weeks ago, only days after his first post. While it seems like there’s a new menswear blog popping up every minute these days, there was something refreshing about his point of view and knowledge on the subject. After planning a trip to Melbourne to shoot my Around Town column, I had the opportunity to meet with Mr. Acquaro at his workplace Beggar Man Thief and discuss how he went from wearing band t-shirts to dress shirts.
