Put This On: A Conversation with Alan Flusser
In this special micro-episode of Put This On, we present a conversation with menswear expert Alan Flusser. Flusser has written the seminal American texts on getting dressed: Style & the Man and Dressing the Man. He’s also helped create a menswear iPhone app called BeSpeak. He runs Alan Flusser Custom in Manhattan, and famously dressed Michael Douglas for the film Wall Street. Alan’s not a designer or a tailor - he’s more like a consiglieri, guiding men towards their best appearance.
Alan’s expertise features heavily in our next episode of Put This On, but we thought we’d take this opportunity to introduce you to one of menswear’s great treasures.
His books are a really great, informative read and they’re quite approachable for anyone, no matter where they find themselves in their sartorial journey. While you can certainly read lots of menswear sites and blogs on the topic of style and dressing well, I think Flusser’s texts are well worth the purchase for the depth they bring the reader.
