Transcript

Reginald Ferguson [00:00:00]: Hello. I'm Reg. Tiff [00:00:01]: And I'm Tiff. And we're the fashion geek. Reginald Ferguson [00:00:03]: Trying to make New York. Tiff [00:00:04]: And the world? Reginald Ferguson [00:00:05]: Well, New York is the world. Tiff [00:00:06]: A little flyer, one outfit. Reginald Ferguson [00:00:08]: And podcast. Tiff [00:00:09]: At a time, time. Reginald Ferguson [00:00:13]: Hey. I'm Reg from New York Fashion Geek. Tiff [00:00:16]: I'm Tiffany. Reginald Ferguson [00:00:17]: We are the fashion Geeks. Regentive? Exactly. You can always hit me up on insta, New York fashion Geeks, Tiff [00:00:26]: And I'll be there too. Reginald Ferguson [00:00:30]: You may be looking, but it's my insta. So it's the really -- Tiff [00:00:34]: I'm all about you, Reg. I'm here to support you. Reginald Ferguson [00:00:36]: No. I know. No. I appreciate that. So, you're you're a friend of the NYFG. Tiff [00:00:41]: That's right. Reginald Ferguson [00:00:41]: So this is our first episode. We thank you so much for listening. Happy to be here. Tiff [00:00:48]: And thank you. If you've heard if you listen to our intro, you know, what we're about, you know, why we're here, and thank you for returning for episode 1, which is we're gonna get right into it. Reginald Ferguson [00:00:58]: We need to do. Yeah. Tiff [00:00:59]: Right into what we're about. That is what Reginald Ferguson [00:01:01]: is it? Business. Tiff [00:01:02]: It's about business. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:03]: Business. It's about being fly. Tiff [00:01:05]: That's right. Looking taken the everyday man and helping him to make the right decisions to be his flyest self ever. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:12]: Yeah. Exactly. I mean, just to be the best self that you can be in terms of your gear, no matter what your look is, no matter what your style is, consider me a personal trainer for fashion. Tiff [00:01:23]: And I think I think you're up for the challenge because, I'm looking at what you're wearing today, and, you have a pocket square. And Reginald Ferguson [00:01:31]: I don't think -- -- always have a pocket square. Tiff [00:01:32]: Well, yeah, you look at men wearing suits and the pocket is naked. The men leave the pocket naked, and I don't understand. stand. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:41]: That is a wasted opportunity. Tiff [00:01:43]: I think so. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:44]: That's a waste of opportunity to be flawed. Tiff [00:01:46]: I agree. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:46]: To really be honest, because a pocket square is an accessory. Tiff [00:01:51]: And I think it's also a further expression of who you are. Like, I see a guy walking with just a tie and a suit, and there's no expression except for the tie and the suit. unless the tie, of course, is, like, saying something. Reginald Ferguson [00:02:02]: Bam. Tiff [00:02:03]: Which I love ties that say something, but when you pair a tie and a pocket square like you have today, it is, it takes it to the next level. Reginald Ferguson [00:02:11]: No. I appreciate that. And let's be clear, the tie should never be the same pattern as the pocket square. Tiff [00:02:19]: Oh, I yes. Exactly. Reginald Ferguson [00:02:20]: Yeah. That's that's a major full pie. Tiff [00:02:22]: Yeah. Then you'll be matchy matchy. Reginald Ferguson [00:02:24]: Yes. Yes. Tiff [00:02:25]: We don't like them matchy matchy. Reginald Ferguson [00:02:27]: Yeah. No. You just be whack. I mean, that's that's the bottom line. So you get cuffed and thrown into the fashion police fan, which is lined by Louis Vuitton. Tiff [00:02:36]: Oh, oh, that sounds Reginald Ferguson [00:02:39]: That sounds expensive. To be a Tiff [00:02:42]: I had to point out I'm wearing my version of a men's tie. Reginald Ferguson [00:02:45]: Oh, what do what do you notice that? What do they call that? Tiff [00:02:48]: It's it's called a, a pearl drop slide necklace. Oh. The pearl drops into a little round. sort of link Reginald Ferguson [00:02:56]: and it Tiff [00:02:57]: slides down to form like a choker with a drop. It's it's a very fashionable thing of the day, jewelry wise. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:03]: That is that's a smooth accessory. Tiff [00:03:04]: Thank you. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:05]: And that's part of what that's part of what being fly is is essential. I said, no. No. You are, but accentuating accessories. Tiff [00:03:12]: Thank you. Thank you. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:13]: Uh-huh. -- accessories take your and make the woman. I mean, accessories take your gear to the next level. Tiff [00:03:20]: I agree. So why would you leave a pocket naked? That's all. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:24]: There's nothing wrong with leaving it unadorned. It's just that if you decide to put something in it just raise it raises the stakes. Tiff [00:03:33]: I agree. And I think we absolutely should talk about that in a in a episode. Oh, absolutely. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:38]: No. I'm I'm I'm totally down with that. Tiff [00:03:39]: Let's do I'm totally down with it. -- episode. All pocket square. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:43]: The pocket square. -- Tiff [00:03:43]: things you could do with pocket squares. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:45]: The pocket squares by the fashion Geeks. That seems appropriate Tiff [00:03:48]: somehow. Right. I can't wait. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:50]: I could tell. Tiff [00:03:52]: I don't know. I've always had a fascination with him because I didn't really see them. I'm from North Carolina. I didn't really you know, you don't see where I was from. Reginald Ferguson [00:04:00]: You didn't see the country gentleman walking down the street. Tiff [00:04:03]: They rarely saw a suit, and they saw one. Reginald Ferguson [00:04:06]: Oh, you in that part of North Carolina. Tiff [00:04:08]: or at a funeral, yeah, it was kinda sort of thrown together and kinda sort of like, the only suit the the person had or maybe, you know, 1 or too. It certainly wasn't a fly person. And it maybe maybe because the gentleman just didn't know how to be fly. Reginald Ferguson [00:04:24]: So -- Right. Well, maybe Tiff [00:04:26]: point of view is, like, to help those guys who think, yo, I have one suit, and that's all I need. Reginald Ferguson [00:04:31]: Everything in life is about exposure and the lack thereof. But it's funny was you were talking about, you know, your life in North Carolina. Up here in the north, we, we had it all together. Tiff [00:04:43]: Yeah. You, yeah. Right. Reginald Ferguson [00:04:44]: Yeah. Tiff [00:04:47]: Alright. I'll just leave that right there. Reginald Ferguson [00:04:49]: I'm sorry. You know, I'm a I'm a native Tiff [00:04:51]: That's true. Reginald Ferguson [00:04:52]: New York New York has been known to be up south. And and there -- -- someone catches that reference. Tiff [00:04:56]: And that went right over my head. Reginald Ferguson [00:04:59]: I don't think so for my producer. Tiff [00:05:01]: So -- I'm seeing his face. That's something y'all can explain to me maybe later. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:04]: Oh, that'll be another conversation. That'll be That'll be tabled. That's a diff that's a different podcast. Exactly. Tiff [00:05:11]: Okay. I'll I'll listen in on that. But there's also you know, York is one of the many you know, you have fashion Industries, fashion shows, or fashion weeks. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:19]: Oh, we're a fashion center. Tiff [00:05:21]: Right. And there's New York fashion week. There's -- And Reginald Ferguson [00:05:23]: there's New York Fashion Geeks. -- Tiff [00:05:24]: fashion week. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:25]: Right. Tiff [00:05:25]: And there's Milan, fashion week. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:27]: Mhmm. Pidi Elmo. Tiff [00:05:28]: There's no North Carolina fashion week. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:31]: No. No. I think you have a furniture week. Tiff [00:05:35]: Oh, yeah. No. Good. No. -- couch you ever had. Yeah. Need to come on down? Reginald Ferguson [00:05:39]: Yeah. No. No doubt. I was -- Tiff [00:05:41]: No upholstery. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:45]: I got my wait a second. You know, as we joke about that, correct me if I'm wrong. And, actually, I've never done this before. I'm gonna put our producer search on the on the Google search. 1 of the famed denim mills, isn't that from NC? Tiff [00:06:00]: That is correct. Reginald Ferguson [00:06:01]: That just closed. Yep. Yes. Tiff [00:06:03]: Actually, I didn't just close. It's still open. I actually met a gentleman who's working for Ralph Lauren down in, North Carolina. Reginald Ferguson [00:06:09]: Okay. Well, what's what's the what's the famous mill I thought there was a famous mail that just closed, and maybe there's still one that's open. Tiff [00:06:16]: Well, there's a lot of mills that close in North Carolina. Reginald Ferguson [00:06:18]: But Denham, specifically Denham. Tiff [00:06:19]: The corporate offices. are still going strong in North Carolina. No. Reginald Ferguson [00:06:24]: No. But, I mean, literally denim Mills. Is it cone denim? Yes. cone denim. Tiff [00:06:30]: cone denim. I haven't heard of cone denim. Good for you. Reginald Ferguson [00:06:35]: I'm the fashion geek. Tiff [00:06:36]: Thank you, search. That's cool. They close? Reginald Ferguson [00:06:40]: Search with the fact check. Yeah. I mean, this was this was a classic. I mean, we're talking about I think that place was open for, you know, close to a 100 years. Tiff [00:06:49]: And that's sad. That's the that's what Reginald Ferguson [00:06:51]: it is. It is sad. Where Tiff [00:06:52]: I grew up, all the meals closed. before I even went away to college. And it was sort of it it it put the whole town into into a financial sort of downspend then, you know, tailspin or downward spiral. That's I mix my metaphors sometimes. You know? Reginald Ferguson [00:07:08]: That's probably, Tiff [00:07:09]: that's probably that, thing in Reginald Ferguson [00:07:13]: your that that led that to happen. Tiff [00:07:14]: Maybe the little sippy sippy I I've had some of. Yes. but it's interesting that you should say that because we were talking Funnily about upholstery. I said that. I actually did some design in upholstery, just to tell you that week can be fashionable. Reginald Ferguson [00:07:31]: Absolutely. You can. No. No. No. No. No. No. No. Tiff [00:07:33]: No. No. No. No. No. Reginald Ferguson [00:07:34]: I was making fun of n c when you said, you know, we we we don't even have a fashion week. But I know you're the home of furniture. And, again, I knew you were home in one of the mills, so come on now. You should -- Tiff [00:07:45]: Well, what I'm trying to do? Reginald Ferguson [00:07:46]: -- the Northern the Northern Negro some points here. Tiff [00:07:48]: Well, I'm giving you points. because it was a great segue into what I bring to this podcast. And that is that I used to be a a costume designer. And a lot of the costumes I designed were medieval costumes and and or Elizabethan or restoration. And where I had to shop for those big gowns And a lot of times, you know, the west kits for the for the gentleman, were at, fabric stores that sold lightweight upholstery. because -- Oh, really? Reginald Ferguson [00:08:20]: -- Tiff [00:08:20]: used to wear back in the day. Reginald Ferguson [00:08:21]: Oh, so all that brocaded. Tiff [00:08:23]: Yeah. It was hidden silks and stuff like that that you, you know, some people would put on their couch. but not you and me. I'm sure I don't have a snow couch. I don't know about you. Reginald Ferguson [00:08:31]: No. No. I don't. Tiff [00:08:31]: But, yeah, all that brocade and dance can, you know, all that stuff I used to work in. So, yeah, you can make a capsule look quite fashionable. Reginald Ferguson [00:08:40]: Oh, absolutely. No. I've got a dope. couch, which matches my area road. Tiff [00:08:47]: Does it match your suit and your tie and your pockets? Reginald Ferguson [00:08:50]: It can match all my outfits at all times. Matter of fact, I have, I have a good friend of mine. I'm gonna I'm gonna give her a shout because she thinks I give her no credit for anything. I'm gonna call her house of Hortendorff And What a nice name. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It's a smooth name. One of a con. She's the only person of that name in a America and in New York City because she's from Amsterdam. Nice. Oh, man. I just lost my point. Tiff [00:09:16]: talk about the you wanna give her a shout out the house. Reginald Ferguson [00:09:19]: Yeah. But I could Tiff [00:09:19]: because she matches her furniture or Reginald Ferguson [00:09:21]: No. No. No. No. Actually, thank you. I'm back on track. the the whole point was she also would like me outside of doing fashion consultancy. She would love me to do interior decorating. Tiff [00:09:31]: And then -- Oh. Reginald Ferguson [00:09:32]: No. It's very flattering, but that's that's not my steez. I I'm not Lenny Kravitz. That's all I'm saying. Tiff [00:09:40]: Love him. Reginald Ferguson [00:09:41]: Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. Alright. Tiff [00:09:42]: So let's get into the meat of showing? Reginald Ferguson [00:09:44]: Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. I heard that you saw something in the New York Post and had no idea what the heck it was. why don't you tell, listening audience the story? Tiff [00:09:57]: Oh, Rich. Always ready to Reginald Ferguson [00:10:00]: I'm just trying to help you out, sister. Tiff [00:10:01]: To to help me out. Reginald Ferguson [00:10:02]: That's why. Tiff [00:10:03]: Okay. So this is what I did in the state. And apparently, it's a fashion thing. I didn't understand. Reginald Ferguson [00:10:09]: And I can't wait till our producer starts laughing. Tiff [00:10:11]: So a a while back, I, I sort of I got a little lead in it on my news of the day. They it's in my email box, but, I also saw it. The the I think it was in New York Post. Reginald Ferguson [00:10:23]: Yeah. The post. Tiff [00:10:24]: An issue of the New York post had front and back cover. You know, the front's normally a very witty headline of what's going on today regarding possibly politics or whatever. And the back is always forced. This this issue, it was blank with the words, all caps, supreme on the front and the back. And I'm like, what what what the I don't know if I can curse. Reginald Ferguson [00:10:49]: I think you still I think you -- I Tiff [00:10:50]: said, what the hell? Reginald Ferguson [00:10:53]: Oh my god. Well, there goes the Bible Belt audience. That listing ship is gone. Tiff [00:11:00]: Oh, they curse, honey. Among other things, trust me. Reginald Ferguson [00:11:04]: So Tiffany, What is supreme? Tiff [00:11:08]: I don't know. I mean, the only thing I got from it was that, so I I researched it and I was like Reginald Ferguson [00:11:15]: Meaning, well, yeah, you researched it because you had no idea what Supreme Tiff [00:11:19]: Google it. Reginald Ferguson [00:11:20]: You had no you had no idea what Supreme was. Tiff [00:11:22]: No. I was reading my little news feed that I get popped in my email every day, and it said something that, like, the the brand supreme has taken over or went into partnership with the New York Post and taken over back cover. Reginald Ferguson [00:11:33]: Right. Tiff [00:11:33]: And I'm like, what is supreme? I haven't heard Supreme, so I didn't you know, I was like, mhmm. Am I am I behind the time? Reginald Ferguson [00:11:40]: Tiffany, right now, you are the fashion Brit Van Winkle. Tiff [00:11:43]: Oh. Oh, it's time for me to wake up. Reginald Ferguson [00:11:47]: Yes. Supreme is a streetwear label. Tiff [00:11:50]: Oh, well. Reginald Ferguson [00:11:52]: It is based on Lafayette Street. Tiff [00:11:56]: Lafayette. Like Reginald Ferguson [00:11:56]: Right off at Halston. Tiff [00:11:57]: Okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:11:58]: and They are known for what a lot of people do now. They are known for doing drops. Tiff [00:12:03]: What is that? Reginald Ferguson [00:12:04]: Well, essentially, particularly whether it's gear or specifically sneakers, they have individuals on lines down the block. Now what bounces So you can get their capsule collections of their items. Tiff [00:12:21]: Okay. What is bounces now with bouncers? Reginald Ferguson [00:12:24]: You know, like, dudes. Tiff [00:12:26]: Oh, like security. Reginald Ferguson [00:12:28]: Oh, yeah. Like that. -- Tiff [00:12:29]: lines with security. Reginald Ferguson [00:12:30]: Yes. Trusted Farians. twelve year olds with great bank accounts must get on the line to get the latest Supreme merch. Tiff [00:12:42]: And what does this merch? what is it comprised of? Reginald Ferguson [00:12:46]: It is comprised of literally everything from head to toe, even down. to a elbow sleeve if you're rocking in the NBA. Tiff [00:12:57]: Okay. So it's about the name in word. It's about Reginald Ferguson [00:13:00]: the names. It's about the typography. Tiff [00:13:02]: Yeah. It's block letters. Superbree. Reginald Ferguson [00:13:05]: Yeah. But it literally started, you know, really as a skateboard brand. Tiff [00:13:10]: Ah, okay. So it's Reginald Ferguson [00:13:11]: it's sports related. Well No? No. It's not sports re well, it's sports related in terms of that sleeve. was very significant. If I recall correctly, JR Smith was rocking it. Tiff [00:13:22]: Oh, okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:13:23]: last season. but they're known also now. Their power is so strong in the fashion community that some of their drops, some of their capsules, they do a lot of Calabrio now. Tiff [00:13:35]: Okay. A Reginald Ferguson [00:13:36]: lot. They did something with Louis V. Tiff [00:13:38]: And and what kind of merchandise is this? Reginald Ferguson [00:13:40]: I mean, like, the loo I remember the Louis V thing was a bag. I mean, it was a bunch of pieces. I'm clearly not the the target audience, but -- Okay. -- I have to be aware because my no. But my clientele, my clientele listen. I am a suit and tie guy. my clientele isn't necessarily a suit and tie. It could be everybody, everything, and I have to encompass that. So some part of my job. And I literally did that last week, and maybe we'll talk about another episode, special shout out to best made co is learning brands. because as much as I know, as much as I don't know, and I need to have assemblies and sense of every brand. because I'm dealing with a varied clientele. Not everyone is rocking a shirt and tie. Tiff [00:14:25]: That's true. Reginald Ferguson [00:14:26]: So Let me tell you something also interesting about supreme. I mean, they're so they're so deep. They're so powerful. They also do their sales online. And I'm drawing I'm a little sketchy with the details. Maybe search will help me out and do another Google search, but there were 2 kids the story came out last year. I think it came out in New York magazine. There were 2 kids who essentially created their own website that essentially tied in with supreme, and they were selling merch like, ping, ping, ping, ping, I mean, real 2 enterprising cats. Wow. Because that's how deep this stuff is. We're talking lines down the block on Lafayette. We're talking servers crashing on the web. It's, you know, god bless him. Tiff [00:15:14]: How man how old? How old is this brand? Reginald Ferguson [00:15:16]: Supreme, don't quote me and and search can fact check that over ten years old. Tiff [00:15:21]: Really? Reginald Ferguson [00:15:21]: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. Tiff [00:15:24]: Now why have they always headlines around the block on Lafayette? I mean, Reginald Ferguson [00:15:28]: It's like anything else. Right? It's just like us, you have to start somewhere. Tiff [00:15:31]: Glass roots. And it became so big that New York Post wanted to partner with him. Reginald Ferguson [00:15:35]: That's amazing. That Murdoch I don't know who was with a Murdoch's ear. Tiff [00:15:40]: Well, I don't because I'm Reginald Ferguson [00:15:40]: sure he was actually praying. What the hell? It just probably Laughlin. Laughlin told him. Tiff [00:15:47]: The accent. Reginald Ferguson [00:15:48]: So or James, because, you know, one of those one of those brothers was, they were damn allowed. So, you know, so they had the ear to the street. So it's an amazing interest in Calabrio. I just am still tickled pink that you had no idea who Supreme was. Tiff [00:16:04]: I did not. And and I I Reginald Ferguson [00:16:06]: Nothing wrong with that. Tiff [00:16:07]: I don't think I'm a fashion rip van winkle. but I guess, there are some there are some avenues that I have not, you know, ventured down. So there you go. La Reginald Ferguson [00:16:19]: Lafayette? Tiff [00:16:20]: I I wouldn't wear an, what do you call it, elbow sleeve? Reginald Ferguson [00:16:22]: Well, you you're not you're not you're not no. You're not balling. I mean, I'm not rocking it either, but, that they little you could be dressed supreme from head to toe. Tiff [00:16:34]: Is it athletic wear? Reginald Ferguson [00:16:37]: It is a streetwear brand. Tiff [00:16:39]: So streetwear. Reginald Ferguson [00:16:42]: Streetwear. Tiff [00:16:43]: Anything you would wear on the street? Reginald Ferguson [00:16:45]: Yes. Kicks -- From -- -- pants. -- Tiff [00:16:47]: Kicks. Oh Reginald Ferguson [00:16:49]: my gosh. It's come back. The inter the internet is so good. You're like, I'm going to find these words, and I am going to I Tiff [00:16:58]: actually didn't have the internet. It was -- Oh, okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:17:01]: -- Tiff [00:17:01]: part of my again. I just kinda knew what that was. Reginald Ferguson [00:17:03]: Okay. Very nice. I'm I'm I'm impressed. Tiff [00:17:06]: I have a suggestion. Maybe, you know, we can sort of, do a little Calabrio with Supreme and New York fashion gig. Reginald Ferguson [00:17:14]: Oh my gosh. Wouldn't that be all? Your your mouth to idea is I think they would laugh, to really be honest. Not because we're whack. No. No. Not because we're whack. I'm just like, I don't know. It's like apples and oranges. But, actually, the Calabrio with them in the post is apples and oranges. Tiff [00:17:30]: Correct. That's what I'm saying. It's like -- Okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:17:32]: -- Tiff [00:17:32]: listen. Reginald Ferguson [00:17:33]: Alright. Tiff [00:17:33]: Maybe they wanna get into being fly.

Reginald Ferguson [00:18:59]: Oh, man. Unfortunately, we can't do music, but I'll say this. If I was allowed, to put my phone off of vibrate, and someone called my number. Tiff [00:19:13]: What would happen, Reg? Reginald Ferguson [00:19:15]: Well, I tell you what, it would be pretty cool. That's all I'm saying. So I'm taking it off of vibrate right now. Tiff [00:19:25]: And somebody's gotta call you. Reginald Ferguson [00:19:27]: If someone will call me, Tiff [00:19:29]: Alright. It Reginald Ferguson [00:19:30]: would probably really lead in to this fashion hero segment. Tiff [00:19:35]: Alright. Well, I hope that somebody calls you because Prince is pretty amazing. Reginald Ferguson [00:19:39]: Oh, abs absolutely. Tiff [00:19:41]: He is, not only my fashion hero, but I think he's yours too. Am I correct? A little wind doves cry for you. You know, everybody needs a little of that. I hope Reginald Ferguson [00:19:58]: we don't get caught out there. Tiff [00:20:00]: Oh, yeah. Reginald Ferguson [00:20:03]: I wanna explain one thing. That was not set up for this podcast. I had had no. No. No. No. No. Real talk. I have had that ringtone since the passing of my hero. I'm really I'm really flattered that this is the first individual that we're using. Tiff [00:20:27]: And -- And it came up very, very organically. You and I were just talking one we found out that both of us were totally influence influenced by Prince in our high school years. Reginald Ferguson [00:20:36]: Absolutely. Tiff [00:20:37]: And I was like, what? Well, I mean, you Reginald Ferguson [00:20:40]: know, Absolutely. He, I immediately I'm a big ringtone guy. Love having good songs for my ringtone. And when he passed maybe another day. I shared it once on social media just a little bit, but not in-depth, and I won't now. I wanna I wanna state Jermaine to what this topic is. But he was my hero. I wanna be very clear about that. musically. And as a human being, I am flattered to talk about him and to have him be our 1st fashion hero for the podcast. Tiff [00:21:13]: need to. Because boy, did he change fashion for men? Reginald Ferguson [00:21:17]: Prince changed the game in so many ways. but to be specific about fashion, when I was growing up and when purple rain came out, first of all, I want everyone to be clear I'm a native New Yorker. The first time I saw a prince was at a place called The Ritz. What? which if you're a native New Yorker, you know where that is, but I'll tell you what it is now. It is the palladium dorms of my alma mater, New York University, NYU. Wow. Before the palladium was a dorm, it was a club. But before the palladium was a club, it was the ritz. And my mom knew what a fan I was way back before purple rain. And I saw an advertisement. Tiff [00:22:07]: cab driver time. Reginald Ferguson [00:22:08]: Oh, great song. Great song tribute to New York. Yep. He loved New York. Tiff [00:22:13]: That was my intro to him. Reginald Ferguson [00:22:14]: And we loved him. that's the 1999 album. And I was fortunate to go as a wee little kid because my mom was a big music fan. My mom was my first teacher, influence a lot of my life still to this day. And musically, she was voracious, and she would take me to shows. and that's a show that I went to. So I'm here to tell you I was freaked out when I saw a prince at the Ritz because this was around the dirty mind era, and he had lingering on. Tiff [00:22:53]: lingery. Reginald Ferguson [00:22:54]: Yes. because that's what I called as a little kid. He had lingerie on and a coat. It looked like he should have been on the subway. I was freaked out. My mind was blown. My mom, because she was such a forward thinker, she loved it, handled it well. Tiff [00:23:13]: Better than my father. Reginald Ferguson [00:23:15]: Yeah. She nurtured me through the process. Tiff [00:23:17]: I wish I had my mother to be your mother. Reginald Ferguson [00:23:19]: My point is no. I hear you. Tiff [00:23:21]: Don't mean that. Reginald Ferguson [00:23:21]: I hear you. I had a cool mom. it's tough when you have the cool mom and a beautiful mom. because people just give you a lot of action about that. But we're talking about a guy who heads to little heels, longeray and a long purple coat. Tiff [00:23:38]: And ruffles? Reginald Ferguson [00:23:40]: No. This is pre ruffles. Tiff [00:23:41]: Oh, pre ruffles. This is Reginald Ferguson [00:23:42]: pre this is pre ruffles. This is this is this is dirty Tiff [00:23:45]: mine. So Reginald Ferguson [00:23:45]: that's that's the point that we're drawing here. I don't know if anyone has, and I can't remember the the brother's name. His his daughter is the lead on Blackish. and I follow him on insta, but the coffee table book that came out following Prince's death my whole point is every error we're talking about a person who chain style. Yes. We're talking about a person who was the forefront of androgyny. Tiff [00:24:17]: Yes. And metro sexuality? Reginald Ferguson [00:24:19]: I will tell you that when I was in school, we would have a theme week And one day I forgot what the actual theme day was. I came as prince. Tiff [00:24:30]: No. You did. Reginald Ferguson [00:24:31]: Yes. I did. Real talk. Oh my gosh. I wore I wore my late grandmother's blouse. It was a gray blouse with a thin blue stripe. and it had, like, a scarf attachment. So I rocked that. The sleeves were up to my forearms. because even then, I was becoming tall. I was long. I was always long. little eyeliner. Tiff [00:24:53]: Yes. Yes. Reginald Ferguson [00:24:55]: A clip on earring. Tiff [00:24:58]: Right now. Reginald Ferguson [00:24:59]: Prince is the reason that I bought boots. No. That's real. Tiff [00:25:05]: Straight up. Do you go Stoleto? Reginald Ferguson [00:25:09]: No. No. No. Stoleto. Even even as a kid, I was tall. There's no question about it. Even as a kid, I was tall, but my first my first set of boots, as I like to call it fashion boots, totally influenced by Prince. And when I was in undergrad, actually, it was high school, and then I wore them still in undergrad, because by that time, my foot changed on my foot my foot size hadn't changed. Tiff [00:25:33]: I Reginald Ferguson [00:25:33]: had these dope saggy gray -- Oh. -- boots. You had the slouch Yeah. I had the slouch. Tiff [00:25:41]: Oh, I know what you're talking about. Reginald Ferguson [00:25:43]: Oh, yeah. Tiff [00:25:43]: Were they suede? Reginald Ferguson [00:25:44]: With the pant? No. No. No. Straight up leather. Tiff [00:25:46]: Straight up leather strap. Reginald Ferguson [00:25:47]: Straight up leather. with the pants inside. Tiff [00:25:50]: Up inside. Reginald Ferguson [00:25:51]: Absolutely. Tiff [00:25:52]: Oh, yeah. Reginald Ferguson [00:25:53]: So this man did it for me. We're talking about a man who rocked an award show with lace pants with the butt essentially open and exposed. and was the most masculine man at the show. Tiff [00:26:10]: Yep. Reginald Ferguson [00:26:11]: The point is he was fearless. And I love that. And I'm talking about all this stuff really even prior to purple rain and then post purple rain. This man had so many custom suits. The guy was diminutive. My late grandmother could have dunked over him. And I know how short he was because I met him once, and I rarely tell that story. And I'm not telling it. I'm teasing -- Tiff [00:26:38]: My God. Yeah. I -- What? Reginald Ferguson [00:26:40]: Yeah. I did. Tiff [00:26:41]: I didn't know you met him. Reginald Ferguson [00:26:42]: I know. I I real I don't really tell the story. I'm very private as people know. And it that was a great that was a great moment. I'm I'm getting goosebumps. I'm happy that it happened, and I could easily cry right now during this podcast because He meant so much to me, understanding that purple was a royal color. Yes. Understanding that wearing ruffles was cool. Even that, you know, much later, much anything. Tiff [00:27:10]: Well, he thing he put on was cool. Reginald Ferguson [00:27:12]: Well, because he was cool. Tiff [00:27:13]: because he was cool when it made everything cool. Reginald Ferguson [00:27:16]: When he did the rock and roll hall of fame jam, with my guitar gently weeps, Anyone who knows that? Tiff [00:27:24]: I saw it. I've watched it twenty times back to back. Reginald Ferguson [00:27:27]: First of all, I have the music to that. I know everything's about streaming now, so I'm old school. I'd say, I got that MP3. because I'm grown. Tiff [00:27:36]: That's right. Reginald Ferguson [00:27:37]: I stream. I do stream, but I do own. And I remember it was just that dope burgundy red, the hat cock to the side because that's what we do because no no brother wears a hat straight on. So cocked at the angle, the suit, the shoes, the boots, I mean, this is a guy, like you said, now he's still let us. I mean, he he wore a stacked heel. He was a short guy. Tiff [00:28:04]: Right. Reginald Ferguson [00:28:04]: You know, I never had to do anything like that. you know, but just just the impact he made. I mean, this is why, like, for example, you can find it you can literally google it, but you can find it in that coffee table book, which I recommend Italian vogue. You know, like, he he's done so many he did so many fashion spreads. Tiff [00:28:24]: because he was a fashion he was in the forefront of new fashion. I I I think I totally think it was part of his brand, not only to music, but how he looked. Reginald Ferguson [00:28:35]: It's Tiff [00:28:35]: also a consideration for him. Reginald Ferguson [00:28:37]: Absolutely. Tiff [00:28:37]: Because for me, if I may, how he influenced me? Reginald Ferguson [00:28:41]: Yes, please. I'm sorry. Tiff [00:28:43]: white girl from Smalltown, North Carolina. he basically blasted me and my senses out of, you know, the the conservative look that I was existing in a time when I as an artist was really trying to break out of, oh, this is what I should wear. This is how I should conform. This is who I should be. And then there was Prince doing his thing. And I just started doing costume design at the time. And, of course, you know, he's a performer. What he was wearing was a costume, but it was way beyond that. It was a It was a personal expression. And and I totally got that, and I and I totally linked onto that because that's exactly where I was finding myself. trying to figure out my personal expression. You know, here we are. We were, you know, talking about brands and in the eighties. This is all about. Everybody gotta wear logo or this brand. You gotta look like this person. You gotta look like that person. Well, I didn't want that. And I shopped. I shop, Salvation Army, and goodwill, and flea markets have fun as little special things that that made me a little different. You know? And even my mother taught me how to sew 12. So I would get my own clothes too. Reginald Ferguson [00:30:00]: Wow. That's impressive. Tiff [00:30:01]: So when I saw prints and I and, you know, the music in and of itself, but with this podcast, not about music. But the end, you know, that was captivating in and of itself. But how he dressed and how he carried himself was a totally different thing. So much so. that after my I guess it was my junior in high school. I go into my hairdresser, and I was like, this is how I want my hair. And I came out. I was already perming my hair. You know, the spiral perm was the big thing for the ladies in the eighties. But I had what they call a fade from the right hand side -- Yes. Reginald Ferguson [00:30:39]: We we -- -- here. We know what a fade is. Tiff [00:30:41]: And it slowly got longer with my perm, all the way over. So I look like I had a I guess I'll Oh, Reginald Ferguson [00:30:48]: you were part you were part of the revolution. Tiff [00:30:50]: I had the revolution haircut. Reginald Ferguson [00:30:54]: And I wore rough shirts Tiff [00:30:58]: all the time. So and it was kinda like, I didn't care. I didn't care what my friend said. I wasn't wearing this Polo Ralph Lauren shirt. I wasn't wearing, this Jay crew outfit. I was doing my own thing, and Prince helped me catapulted me. out of my own restrictions, and that helped me become a better costume designer, actually. Reginald Ferguson [00:31:17]: Wow. I mean, again, I'm a certain Thai guy. but certainly just watching him, you know, certainly influence me in terms of colors. Tiff [00:31:27]: Yes. Rich rich colors. I always wore really saturated, like you said, royal colors. His colors were always -- Yeah. Reginald Ferguson [00:31:34]: Well, purple was his purple was his color, and purple was in royal color. -- Tiff [00:31:37]: but also the aubergines All of those are considered the royal colors. Anything deep and rich and saturated in the purples and blues, all royal. Reginald Ferguson [00:31:47]: He was he was super far. he was my hero in so many different ways. but his impact on fashion can never be ignored will never be underestimated and will always be remembered. I mean, we all live to see the dawn. Tiff [00:32:08]: Yep. Alright. So that is our fashion heroes. Reginald Ferguson [00:32:16]: Alright. Let's move on and get the tears out of my eyes. Man, I could've been on that forever. Thank god for Tiff [00:32:22]: I think we kinda were. And you guys were hanging with us. Absolutely. You know, Prince was huge. We had we had to talk about him first. because that's who you and I share. That's one of the things that we come together on. Reginald Ferguson [00:32:32]: He's the lead off batter for this. Couldn't couldn't be more flatter that he was the 1st entry into fashion heroes. Tiff [00:32:38]: That's right. Much love to my man, prince. Oh. Alright. So shall we move on to our must I must have it. Segment? I must have it. Habit. Habit. Habit. Habit. Reginald Ferguson [00:32:58]: I must have it. Tiff [00:33:00]: Yeah. So what this is about is everybody, as we talk to, talk to you guys about in the intro, is everybody has these items that they must have. you know, 1 or 2 items, or maybe there's several items. But, you know, we all have one of those items. And, Rich, I think, I I think I know that you have this one must have item that you would like to share with everyone. Reginald Ferguson [00:33:25]: Absolutely. Tiff [00:33:25]: So what is Reginald Ferguson [00:33:27]: The GI Joe with the kung fu grip. Tiff [00:33:28]: Okay. Moving on. Reginald Ferguson [00:33:32]: Hey. Everyone knows back then. You had to have that. Tiff [00:33:36]: Alright. Let's talk let's talk fashion. That's great for toys. Reginald Ferguson [00:33:40]: It's a different podcast. Love g i jo. Tiff [00:33:42]: Yeah. g i jo. Reginald Ferguson [00:33:43]: Now you know, and no one's half the battle. Tiff [00:33:45]: Alright. So what is it? What is the one fashion item this moment today that you think is a must have item for men Reginald Ferguson [00:33:54]: It is something that I currently have, but I must have a Jack Spade messenger bag. Wow. Jack Tiff [00:34:02]: Spade messenger bag. Reginald Ferguson [00:34:04]: Absolutely. Tiff [00:34:05]: Alright. Reginald Ferguson [00:34:05]: It is required gear. If you live in New York. Tiff [00:34:11]: So let's touch on that. Why why do you why is it required? I mean, I've seen it. I know exactly what you're talking about. I can picture Reginald Ferguson [00:34:17]: -- It's ubiquitous. Tiff [00:34:19]: Right. And it, you know, messenger bags, everybody, a lot the the New York invented the messenger bag, I think. Reginald Ferguson [00:34:25]: Absolutely. Tiff [00:34:26]: So Reginald Ferguson [00:34:26]: -- Absolutely. Tiff [00:34:27]: What makes this one so special. Reginald Ferguson [00:34:29]: Okay. But but let's let's hit on that. Let's let's let's let's delve into that a Tiff [00:34:33]: little bit. Reginald Ferguson [00:34:33]: -- Tiff [00:34:33]: about that. Okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:34:34]: You are correct because, again, as a native New Yorker, the curator of New York Fashion Geek. You can't have this city without messengers. Messages generally ones on bikes must get packages from spot to spot in an expedient manner. almost of risk of life and limb for the people that are crossing the street. Tiff [00:34:58]: That's correct. Reginald Ferguson [00:34:59]: Much less themselves. Tiff [00:35:00]: I've been almost run over by a few of them. Reginald Ferguson [00:35:02]: Absolutely. In which they will yell at you and curse you. Tiff [00:35:05]: Yeah. It's not it's it's your fault. It's not their fault. Reginald Ferguson [00:35:08]: Right. Exactly. But their bags are very functional for what they have to do And the reason why I wanna big up Jack Spade, particularly because I feel and sense that the brand is fading, is mostly an homage or shout out because there have been other messenger bags, but what he did, which I think is unique I'm gonna tell you right now, I'm solely objective. I have 4. I had 5. I gave one to a client of mine. Bob Bondage quick shout out. Wow. I gave him my canvas wax messenger in gray. Tiff [00:35:47]: That was the original. Correct? Reginald Ferguson [00:35:49]: Yes. That was one of that was one of the originals. I gave that to him because I I just outgrew it, so to speak. He took something that was strictly for one crew of people it made it for everyone else. And that's what I like. I like the use of his materials, Wax cotton, wax canvas, Tiff [00:36:12]: nylon. And leather. He does. And leather too. Reginald Ferguson [00:36:16]: Yeah. Absolutely. I don't have a leather one by oh, what am I saying? Oh my god. I'm sorry Tiff [00:36:21]: to suspend. of them. Reginald Ferguson [00:36:22]: I well, I had 5. I have 4. I have a dope. blue leather one -- Tiff [00:36:29]: Wow. Reginald Ferguson [00:36:29]: -- by Jack Spade that goes very nicely with my blue slip on Wilfer Ferragamo's. Tiff [00:36:37]: Well, look at that. Reginald Ferguson [00:36:39]: I'm not trying to -- Tiff [00:36:39]: Not matchy matchy. Reginald Ferguson [00:36:41]: No. No. It's coordination. So you see, you have the coordinate. Right? Blue bag, blue shoes, blue belt. Tiff [00:36:48]: Cartons and cartons and carpet. Right? Reginald Ferguson [00:36:52]: I I guess. Tiff [00:36:52]: gotta manage the carpet. Reginald Ferguson [00:36:54]: Right. Right. Tiff [00:36:54]: That's a designer. Reginald Ferguson [00:36:55]: No. I know. I know. You stumped me for a little bit. So I just like I love bags just straight up. It's not unique to him. I just love bags because bags have pockets. Tiff [00:37:08]: Yeah. I was gonna ask about that. So what is, the exterior looks pretty sort of straightforward. Right. And that's -- -- utilitarian. Reginald Ferguson [00:37:17]: Right. And that's what's great about it. Tiff [00:37:19]: What's on the Reginald Ferguson [00:37:20]: inside? Inside or pockets. Pocket? Yes. Tiff [00:37:26]: We love pockets. Reginald Ferguson [00:37:27]: I do. As a guy and as a person who likes to keep stuff, unquestionably, I need I need I need I need I need pockets. There's there's no question about that. And I just felt like he he made something that was so specific to one group of people and then made it for everyone else. And that's why that's why I love about his brand. And that's why I have continued to rep the brand not as a paid user. Tiff [00:37:57]: Okay. Well, we don't yeah. We -- No. No. No. We don't have any paid sponsors yet? Reginald Ferguson [00:38:00]: No. No. No. Not at all. But I have 4 of those bags, and I love them all. And I use them, you know, in different ways and different formats. I have small ones. I have large ones. ones in different colors, you know, for to match my suits, to match my shoes. Tiff [00:38:17]: Right. Reginald Ferguson [00:38:18]: Because even though I'm a dude, I'm all about the shoes, the bag, Tiff [00:38:22]: And these bags these bags don't look like purses. It sort of gives a it it Reginald Ferguson [00:38:25]: -- Tiff [00:38:26]: Well, no. I think -- No. Reginald Ferguson [00:38:27]: It's not a purse. Tiff [00:38:28]: The special thing about these bags, a purse. I love that. Reginald Ferguson [00:38:31]: Yeah. I'm not down with that. I have a friend. I'm not saying his name. I'm not gonna do that to you. You know you rock a mercy. I hate it. I hate it. And he's my boy. I love him to death, but Tiff [00:38:42]: I like them because men carry stuff. And, Reginald Ferguson [00:38:47]: -- Gotta have stuff. -- Tiff [00:38:48]: and it's good it's good to not see bulging pockets in the front and the back. And, I'm still Reginald Ferguson [00:38:53]: known to do that. Tiff [00:38:54]: You know, when you're looking fashionable, when you're wearing a nice jacket or a suit, and you have to carry stuff, it it it I yeah, it it makes a clean line with your with your with your fashion. And, Reginald Ferguson [00:39:09]: The quality of his materials is significant. Tiff [00:39:11]: That's the other thing I wanted to ask you about. So we've got pockets. the wax cotton, that's that's adorable. Reginald Ferguson [00:39:18]: Yeah. Tiff [00:39:19]: Very durable. Reginald Ferguson [00:39:20]: And that's one of the ones I gave away. And then my boy said, my client, Bob Vonage, said that it was wearing out. I was like, get it fixed. Tiff [00:39:27]: Well, it and you can. You can get it. I know. Reginald Ferguson [00:39:30]: I know. He he's giving up on it. I'm very upset with him. Aw. But I'm gonna help him find another bag because he's a client. Tiff [00:39:38]: Well, good for good for you and good for Bob. Reginald Ferguson [00:39:40]: I particularly love with a lot of the jacks paid bags, not all of them. But to me, for me, an innovation was the magazine pocket. Okay. So when you open it up, it Tiff [00:39:53]: really sort of expand. Reginald Ferguson [00:39:54]: No. No. No. No. No. No. The the back of the bag has a horizontal slit for you to put magazines. So you you're shouldered up. Tiff [00:40:04]: Oh, okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:40:05]: And boom. I keep magazines and business. Tiff [00:40:09]: Okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:40:10]: I have way too many subscriptions to periodically weekly's, monthlies is bad, but I love them all. And I love that innovation. I consider innovation. I'm not saying he's the only one who did it, but for me, as a New Yorker, when I saw that, I was like, boom. I gotta have that. Not all my bags have a magazine. It's an Tiff [00:40:29]: outside pocket. Reginald Ferguson [00:40:30]: Yeah. Not all my bags have the magazine outside pocket. And when, you know, when they don't, I I either keep it in my hand, I look like a coach on the train. So but, you know, if not, then I just put it inside my bag. but much love to Jack Spade. Just a great brand. I am so sad that the store is no longer in Soho. that online stuff. I'm not against online, but I just love going to the store because I love the crew. And, You know, much left to the Spade family, particularly in the passing of the Lake Kate Spade. Tiff [00:41:05]: Yes. Okay. That is our our must have item of the -- I must have it, Reginald Ferguson [00:41:12]: and I got it for You must get them too, and I'll help you. Tiff [00:41:17]: And they last. And there were the price. Absolutely. The price point is $388 up to $395, but what you get is bag that lasts 3 to 4 years. And, Reginald Ferguson [00:41:26]: 3 to 4 years. Are you kidding me? Everything I buy, I'm trying to get at least 10 years worth of use. And my nylon navy travel bag that I use as a messenger bag, my boy, another client, Jared Gooding, Jay Good, went to buy mine on the spot. Wow. I told him no. Tiff [00:41:44]: These are nice bags. Absolutely. Mine lasted that long. but moving on. So, we have another segment that we like. Reginald Ferguson [00:41:52]: Our last segment of the day. Tiff [00:41:53]: And and it's a fun upbeat segment. I promise. It's called fashion word of the day. Fashion Reginald Ferguson [00:42:03]: words. The fashion word of the day. Okay. Tiff [00:42:11]: And, what that basically it is is basically what it says is that that we have a word. It's a fashion word. Regis got a word, and I got a word. Yep. And we're gonna say what the word is, and we're gonna challenge each other to know what the word is to and if we know it, to define it, to spell it, and define it, and then use it as a How Reginald Ferguson [00:42:29]: about spelling it? I mean, I'm not against spelling, Tiff [00:42:31]: but That might be fun. Reginald Ferguson [00:42:32]: Well, let's use it in a sentence. Tiff [00:42:33]: It might be fun to spell it? Why not? Okay. If you don't wanna spell it, you can go pass. But, yeah, let's do this. Rich, what's your word of the day that you wanna present to me? Reginald Ferguson [00:42:45]: Butaneer.
