#2619 Handsome Dan’s, Nine-Year-Old Selvedge Denim, And Richard Biedul


What a world, what a week, what a lifetime. First up, Handsome Dan. I mentioned Handsome Dan on the blog back in July of 2012, when he had just opened his namesake candy shop in Williamsburg — I used to visit him most days while walking to South 4th Street from the Bedford Ave subway stop; his store was a welcome pitstop on that 15 minute journey back home.

About five years ago I interviewed Scott Schuman on the phone from New Zealand and I can honestly say that I was intimidated as all hell, but after being on the menswear show circuit with him for a few years, and occasionally running into him on the streets of New York City, I now know him to be a barrel of laughs. He showed up to the Ugg party that Jenny Albright and I deejayed this afternoon, and I sat him down for a quick Q&A to talk everything from Rihanna VS Beyonce to whether or not he’ll be sending racy iPhone snaps after the iCloud scandal of the past few days.
