Very proud of my cousin Jessica and her new fashion career.
Starting today at 12pm Eastern Time I’m kicking off a series of curated sales on Gilt MAN. There’ll be a new sale every Friday at noon for three consecutive weeks, and each sale runs through the weekend. The goal was to define the ultimate wardrobe for the style-conscious professional, and each week we are going to outfit a different aspect of his life. Today’s selections are all about the ultimate work wardrobe. The theme on March 18th is “going out,” and the following Friday, March 25, features my picks for what to wear on the weekend. Check out a few items from this week’s sale below.
