Can You Help a Brother Out?

Other than sharing my collection of denim and workwear material, and maybe some words about my son, I never intended this site to be really personal. I feel right now I need to make it slightly personal. For the past six years I have by employed by Ralph Lauren as the director, and more recently the senior director, of men's and women's graphics and CAD for the Rugby brand. Yesterday it was announced that the brand will cease all operations. For the corporate employees the last day will be next Friday, November 9th. The stores, as well as e-commerce, will shutdown February 2nd. As a result, I will be unemployed next Friday. I will still continue to post just maybe not everyday. I still have way too much stuff around here and it needs to be shared with you. In the mean time I will be hunting for a full-time job and doing freelance. If any readers who work in the fashion industry know of any opportunities, please drop me a line. Thanks.

    1. Thanks Dale. I've got a few things brewing right now. I'm looking at this as a great opportunity, not a setback.
