Filmmaker and Harvard alum Whit Stillman — known for the preppy classic “Metropolitan” — is just as opinionated as anyone when it comes to clothes. As he told Brookly-based The L Magazine:
“Take Ivy” looks terrible.
I’ve never worn sneakers or sweatshirts in my life.
I decided the moment I graduated from college that I would never wear blue jeans again
Normally, if you wait long enough, Ralph Lauren will bring it out.
I really like Bass Weejuns because they’re the cheapest leather shoes you can buy.
My favorite thing are comfortable, cotton trousers. I really like those sort of challenging colors. That summer of Nantucket look: men who are macho enough to wear pastels.
Head over here for the rest of Stillman’s thoughts, which include how mean people can be when it comes to clothes.
