Two Minutes with Matt Repicky

By Susannah George - 26 Jun 2012

Mr Matt Repicky is on a roll. 

1) The Wall Street Journal asked for his opinion on what to wear when clothes are your job.

2) Stylecaster listed him as the fashion inspiration in their rundown on New York's 50 Most Stylish Men.

3) His breakaway blog, Men's Threads is on fire. Every time we google it seems another influential has quoted him.

As one of New York City's most sought-after predictors and challengers of men's style, we are feeling extremely chuffed to call him our own. Yes sir, Matt is our newest Urban List contributor. Self high five! For the record...

4) He is not Brad Goreski. Please don't ask him if he is. Again.

Once a month, Matt will give his take on stateside sartorial trends, as well as reporting from the trenches during his biannual trips to men's fashion weeks in Paris and Milan. His posts will be appearing on the site within the next week or two, but in the meantime, let's get acquainted…
