Bruce Boyer in the Wall Street Journal
Bruce Boyer, one of the best voices we have in men’s clothing and style, was recently interviewed in the Wall Street Journal:

It is both delusional and stupid to think that clothes don’t really matter and we should all wear whatever we want. Most people don’t take clothing seriously enough, but whether we should or not, clothes do talk to us and we make decisions based on people’s appearances.
On the other hand, there are people, particularly in the fashion industry, who take clothing too seriously. We aren’t doing biomedical research or working on some nuclear collider. Clothing is not everything in life and it won’t solve problems of famine and overpopulation. It’s a fine balance you have to strike and that’s what I try to do.
[…]
I’ve learned a lot from bloggers. Some of the young men doing it are wonderful and know much more than I do. But what bothers me is that some of them seem to know everything about clothing except how to enjoy it. They want the latest, hippest labels and they know what all the most expensive brands are but you get the feeling that they really don’t enjoy it or don’t know how to wear it the way they should.
