I was going to say they'll be. Reginald Ferguson [00:00:57]: New users when they become clients. Tiff [00:00:58]: That's correct. New listeners, welcome because this is our jam. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:03]: Absolutely. I am fashion geek number one reg Ferguson, the woman you've been listening to. Tiff [00:01:08]: Fashion geek number two tiffany Minutel Schreiber. Yeah, I have a compound name. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:16]: Yeah, you have a hyphenated name because you're a modern woman. Tiff [00:01:19]: Yes, that's true. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:20]: I have a government name because I was brought here against my will. Tiff [00:01:27]: Wow. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:27]: Well, I mean, it is what it is, but I'm happy to be here. My struggle is here. We don't need to get that much deeper than thought. This is this a PBS podcast? What is this? Tiff [00:01:40]: This is about fashion. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:43]: So it's been a minute, TIFF. Tiff [00:01:45]: It has been a while. We took a little tiny little, teeny tiny little break for the holidays. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:50]: Yeah. Transitioning. We had Christmas. Tiff [00:01:52]: My God, with the holidays and everything going on. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:54]: Where did you go for Christmas? Tiff [00:01:56]: Family. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:56]: Yes. Where'd you go, TIFF? Tiff [00:01:58]: I zipped down to North Carolina. Reginald Ferguson [00:02:00]: Of course you did. Tiff [00:02:00]: You traveled two days? No, I traveled, but on the road. No, we were and then holy cow, someone had the present. Yeah. We were like, do we really want to drive 10 hours down and 10 hours back? One down on Friday, one back on Sunday. And I go, yeah, well, because we'd have to take breaks. Everybody's got to pee, everybody's got to eat. And then it's an hour break. Reginald Ferguson [00:02:22]: When I drive is, like, hardcore. Tiff [00:02:24]: That's the way my father used to be. You have to hold your shit. I mean stuff. Reginald Ferguson [00:02:28]: See, because it could have been pee. Tiff [00:02:30]: You couldn't pee. Reginald Ferguson [00:02:32]: No, I'm saying it could have been pee. Tiff [00:02:35]: Yeah, exactly. That's not what I meant, but that's what I meant. Reginald Ferguson [00:02:38]: Did he do a call? Like, who's the ones and who's the twos? Tiff [00:02:41]: Nope, we didn't get no call. You rode, right? You rode all the way from North Carolina to Florida. You rode. Oh, do your business before. We're riding all the way, but that's not the way. Reginald Ferguson [00:02:51]: That's not that bad a drive. My late grandfather did new York to Florida. Tiff [00:02:56]: Oh, wow. That's a long ride. Did he have a Cadillac? Because that's the only way to do that ride. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:01]: No stereotypes. My family. Tiff [00:03:04]: Cadillacs Lincoln. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:06]: No, my late grandfather was a Chrysler Primouth guy. Tiff [00:03:08]: Oh, chrysler's are nice. Yeah, we had a Chrysler growing up. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:11]: Oh, you did? What'd? Tiff [00:03:12]: You have Chrysler? I don't know. I'm going to have to think about that one. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:17]: A Chrysler. Tiff [00:03:18]: It was white on the outside, red cherry, red interior. Just like the Corvette we used to have. My grandfather gave it to my mother and she blew out the catalytic converter and never got it fixed. And it just kind of sort of what? Yeah. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:32]: How did she blow it out? Tiff [00:03:34]: I don't know. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:34]: Was she parked underneath? Tiff [00:03:35]: Because, I mean, usually who knows what happens? Reginald Ferguson [00:03:38]: Okay. Tiff [00:03:38]: But she wasn't very good at car upkeep. So that's why I learned from my father, so that I could keep my cars nice and I could change spark plugs. I could change the oil. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:47]: Wow. Tiff [00:03:47]: Or at least I used to. But now, these new fancy cars, you. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:52]: Still have to change the oil. Tiff [00:03:53]: Right. But with my Toyota Camry, you had to tilt the engine so that you get to the spark plugs, because I just used to change my own spark plug. Couldn't you know, you had a special tool to tilt the engine. I'm like, okay, I'm out. No more mechanic for Tiffany. So I couldn't do that anymore. But anyway, getting back to what I said, I decided to check the airfare and see if it was comparable to the hours driven and the cost of toil and trouble bubble. We flew. Reginald Ferguson [00:04:23]: Wow. Tiff [00:04:23]: Okay. So, yeah, we went to North Carolina. I saw every member of my family in 36 hours. Reginald Ferguson [00:04:30]: Wow. Tiff [00:04:30]: And I have to say, it was amazing. It's been three years since my father died. Yeah. So it was very nice. I'm glad, actually, since my cousin because I did go back, but for everybody in the whole family, the whole clip since my cousin died. So it was very nice. Reginald Ferguson [00:04:47]: Good for you. Tiff [00:04:47]: That was my Christmas. And then when we came back, we canceled our New Year's Eve plans. We did nothing. We went nowhere. Reginald Ferguson [00:04:53]: TIFF, I got a photo from you. Tiff [00:04:57]: Which one? Reginald Ferguson [00:04:57]: If I recall, for your New Year's, you were balling. You did a little lobster. Tiff [00:05:04]: We did lobster and champagne. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:05]: Yeah. Tiff [00:05:07]: Is that fashionable? Reginald Ferguson [00:05:07]: Ridge it's big time. Yeah, that was fly. Tiff [00:05:12]: We stayed in our comfy clothes. We didn't even dress in any kind of sequins or anything. I was, like, literally eating my lobster and drinking my champagne and my T shirt and my yoga pants. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:21]: For potential clients, that's not what you want to do. I'm hoping that when you went out, potential clients that I have not met yet, that you will fly. That you at least had a sport jacket on, at least maybe not suited. And ladies, something that didn't involve sweat. Tiff [00:05:40]: I propose that to my husband, I go while you're cooking that lobster, because I don't like to be in the room because I don't want to hear the screams. I'm like, Why are you cooking lobsters? Reginald Ferguson [00:05:46]: Don't scream. What is this about? Tiff [00:05:49]: They make a noise. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:50]: No, they don't. Tiff [00:05:50]: Take it. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:51]: No, I won't eat it. No, here's the noise. Tiff [00:05:52]: I won't eat it. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:53]: Here's the noise. It's the water boiling. And then here's the other noise because it's the top banging, because the water is boiling. And that's it. That's it. There are no screams. Tiff [00:06:04]: Whatever. Anyway, he was like, Nah, let's just stay how we are. And that's what we did. It's probably the most fashionable, comfortable fashionable. Reginald Ferguson [00:06:12]: No. Tiff [00:06:12]: That was the least New Year's Eve I've ever had. Reginald Ferguson [00:06:14]: No, that was the least fashionable. Tiff [00:06:15]: All right, moving on. Anyway, we're in the new year. Reg, you got something new going on. Reginald Ferguson [00:06:22]: Yes, I do. Tiff [00:06:22]: That involves a book. Reginald Ferguson [00:06:24]: Yes. Tiff [00:06:24]: It fabric samples. Yes, please. Reginald Ferguson [00:06:28]: Yeah, I haven't posted it yet. Tiff [00:06:30]: It's the beginning stages. Reginald Ferguson [00:06:32]: Yes, absolutely. Tiff [00:06:33]: Drop a little teaser. Reginald Ferguson [00:06:34]: Yeah. I'm about to become a distributor of men's suiting. Tiff [00:06:42]: Wait, you're a New York fashion geek style consultant? You're going to people's closets now? You're going to be doing fabric on top of am. Reginald Ferguson [00:06:52]: I am. As someone said to me, it's a level up. Tiff [00:06:55]: Yeah. Reginald Ferguson [00:06:56]: Wow. Tiff [00:06:57]: Or it's another notch on the tool belt. Reginald Ferguson [00:07:00]: Yeah. Tiff [00:07:00]: Another little pocket. Another little thing you can bring to the table. Reginald Ferguson [00:07:04]: I thought you can do more puns. Tiff [00:07:06]: That's all I got tonight. Reginald Ferguson [00:07:07]: It's a pocket. Tiff [00:07:08]: I need more rum punch. Reginald Ferguson [00:07:11]: Well, your rum punch opportunity is so but to keep it short, I'm doing a collab with a fabric source in England and I'm going to start, if you're listening, on the Insta, particularly when I post it, I'm going to be pitching tailors. There's no question about it. So it's an excellent opportunity. It's all local sourced English material. Wow. I'm hoping it's going to be really two ways. It's going to be the tailors that are out here in the city doing bespoke, doing made to measure, and certainly the end customer themselves as well. So when you become a client, I'm going to have you buy material, if you so choose. Tiff [00:07:56]: Right. Reginald Ferguson [00:07:56]: And then you can present it to the tail. Tail is going to have their mind blown. Tiff [00:07:59]: Right? Reginald Ferguson [00:08:00]: Yeah. Tiff [00:08:01]: That's amazing. Reginald Ferguson [00:08:01]: Thank you. Tiff [00:08:02]: I think that's super. And I'm so glad that that's what you that's New year's, that's little crumbs that you're dropping in the New year that we're going to cultivate seeds. Reginald Ferguson [00:08:10]: Seeds. Tiff [00:08:11]: Well, your crumbs to build up to the whatever. The seeds. Yes, let's stick with seeds. Okay. We're going to grow. We're going to grow you. Reginald Ferguson [00:08:20]: Thank you. I appreciate it. Can I tell you what I saw on my way here? Tiff [00:08:24]: Because you always see something interesting. Absolutely. Reginald Ferguson [00:08:27]: I saw a young kid with a Members Only Parker. Tiff [00:08:33]: So I recall Members Only in the see someone laughing, they. Reginald Ferguson [00:08:39]: Can laugh onto the mic, please, because. Tiff [00:08:41]: Yes, like a Parker the hood with the fur and everything. Reginald Ferguson [00:08:47]: Yes. But it had the distinct you all kids. The distinct Members Only label. And I lost my mind. I chased this kid into a specific train car. I was like, no, I want to make sure and then, as we know, as Parkers are now, even though this was a full length, it wasn't wings length. It had that long tag, too, that read Members Only. I was like, oh, my God. Reginald Ferguson [00:09:15]: Oh, my God. Tiff [00:09:16]: I have to say, they're so now. Reginald Ferguson [00:09:18]: What'S old is what's new again? Tiff [00:09:19]: Yeah. Reginald Ferguson [00:09:20]: Words for my mom. Tiff [00:09:21]: I'm looking at it right now online, and I would have one of those in a minute. Reginald Ferguson [00:09:25]: Parker wow. Tiff [00:09:27]: Are they a reissue, you think? Reginald Ferguson [00:09:29]: No, somebody brought it out of their closet. Did you ever see a Members Only? Parker when we were growing? No. The only Members Only thing we had was jackets. Who am I? I'm will. Robeson. Yeah. Tiff [00:09:41]: Well, we were we're going to introduce you in a minute. Reginald Ferguson [00:09:43]: All right. Well, I know. Hold on. Yeah. And our producers rowan is out. I know. We were going to make it dramatic. Go ahead. Tiff [00:09:51]: We had a dramatic intro for you. All set off. Reginald Ferguson [00:09:53]: Fine. Tiff [00:09:54]: He's excited. Should we just go ahead and move to that? Reginald Ferguson [00:09:57]: Yes. So what do you do? Tiff [00:09:59]: Right, exactly. That's the new segment that we have that replaces our fashion hero. Reginald Ferguson [00:10:04]: Well, we have a guest, which we do. Who blows up our spot. Tiff [00:10:08]: What? Yes, he did. Reginald Ferguson [00:10:10]: That's okay. It's all good. Tiff [00:10:11]: And his name is so we'll do. So what we were supposed to say is our fashion hero section is being preempted this evening by so what do you do? Reginald Ferguson [00:10:27]: So what do you what do you do? It's being preempted by a very salvaged gentleman. I thought that's what you wanted to say. Tiff [00:10:38]: Right, but I was trying to do, like, a commercial thing. You know how you do that vo kind of thing. Reginald Ferguson [00:10:44]: It's not just me. It's not just TIFF. It's not just our producer search, but tonight welcome for the new year. We were supposed to have him in November. Yeah. But it was my bad that it didn't happen. No one else's glad to have here Harlem. Will Roberson. Reginald Ferguson [00:11:11]: How y'all doing out there? Hello. Happy to have you. All right. Yeah. Oh, wow. Will with the Soul Shake, our producer search. That's the first time he gave knuckles to anybody. Tiff [00:11:23]: Nice. He gave knuckles to me once before. I never saw you give knuckles when. Reginald Ferguson [00:11:29]: You give a bump to it. Yeah, I got it. Really? Okay. Bumpy knuckles fine. Yeah, I know. It's fine. Tiff [00:11:43]: So welcome, Will. Reginald Ferguson [00:11:45]: Thank you. Thanks for having me. Tiff [00:11:47]: Thank you for being here. It's a bit of a trek here in Brooklyn. Reginald Ferguson [00:11:50]: Yeah, it's not a trek. Well, you get on the train. Tiff [00:11:54]: That's right. Reginald Ferguson [00:11:55]: Or you walk, I guess, everywhere you take a cab. It's New York or you Uber, or you Uber, which is a related or lyft cab. Right. Yes. I like, lyft the bottom line is, he's here. It wasn't a problem. Tiff [00:12:06]: Right. So thanks for coming. And you're in our segment of So what do You Do? So that would be our first question. I guess we should ask, because he. Reginald Ferguson [00:12:15]: Does a lot of things. Will, I would argue that you're a Renaissance man. First of all, TIFF, you're supposed to ask me this question. Tiff [00:12:21]: You forgot which question? Reginald Ferguson [00:12:23]: Well, I'm going to tell you. You probably wanted to know, how do Will and I know each other? Tiff [00:12:28]: Oh, my God. I did. He that's a problem when I ask you the questions before we get here on the Live on the Mic, because then I forget to ask them when we're live on the mic because I think I've already asked them. Reginald Ferguson [00:12:36]: You can write them. Yeah. Yeah. You got a note section on your phone. Tiff [00:12:39]: So can I have a redo? Reginald Ferguson [00:12:40]: Yeah. Tiff [00:12:41]: Okay. So, Reg, how do you and Will know each other? Reginald Ferguson [00:12:44]: Will and I bumped into each other. Bumped at a yes. At a slow wear sample sale. Yes. I had rolled up with my client, Tony Harris. Will was contemplating a bag that's right. With his wife and lady friend. That's right. Reginald Ferguson [00:13:04]: They were in constant heated conversation. Should I get it or should I not get it? Right. Which one? Right. I came on the outside trying to support the wife because I know the most important person in the room. Oh, that's right. Tiff [00:13:18]: Props. Reginald Ferguson [00:13:19]: That's right. I was with her at first. I was like, I don't know about the bag until I put that thing on. But then he merchandised the bag. Tiff [00:13:34]: Nice. Reginald Ferguson [00:13:35]: Things started to change, but I'm going to share with him something that I know he remembers, but I want to give a different perspective. It's going to be a rashiman effect because I want to hear his take. My boy, Tony. So Will is trying the bag. Yeah. I give the opinion to the wife because the wife is like, niet. And I was like, well, kind of with I'm kind of with you. And he's like, no, no, I kind of like this. Reginald Ferguson [00:14:00]: I was like, okay. I'm not trying to get involved in the marital discord, but then, as I'm looking around the room, unbeknownst to everyone, I look down. When anytime I'm at a sale, I look down. Tiff [00:14:12]: Oh, yes, I do. Reginald Ferguson [00:14:13]: And let me explain why. Because not everything is up on the wall. Tiff [00:14:17]: No, right. Reginald Ferguson [00:14:18]: And people don't look down. No, I look down, I see another bag. It's a large canvas bag. I mean, a beautiful, heavy canvas right, Will? With a leather bottom. Tiff [00:14:30]: Oh, nice. Reginald Ferguson [00:14:32]: So I show said bag to my client, Tony Harris, and to Will. Will becomes interested in the canvas bag versus the green bag that he ultimately got. Tiff [00:14:44]: Oh, what? Reginald Ferguson [00:14:45]: Going back and forth. He's contemplating he should do that. It's his prerogative. That's right, Tony. However I love you, Tony. I know you're listening. Tony decided to be a little persistent, and he wanted to know what Will was going to choose for a choice of bag. He figured Will was going to pick. Tiff [00:15:06]: One and he was going to get the other. Reginald Ferguson [00:15:08]: But Tony clearly had an agenda. Tiff [00:15:11]: He certainly did. Reginald Ferguson [00:15:12]: I'm getting that, and I can't wait for Will to hopefully agree with me. This is how it went down. I was like, hey, guys, do what you want. I'm going to look at pants. Tony. Yes. Absolutely, Tony. Because Tony then creeps up on Will and goes, hey, man, not trying to put any pressure on you, but are. Tiff [00:15:33]: You going to make a decision, or. Reginald Ferguson [00:15:33]: What bag are you contemplating getting? Which was a legitimate question the first time, right? Will politely says, Bro, I don't know. I thought that was all fair. Tony, less than five minutes later, goes back to Will. Hey, man, have you made a choice? Will's like, hey, man, back up. Tiff [00:15:55]: What? Reginald Ferguson [00:15:56]: Give me a moment. Right? But I'm here to tell everybody it wasn't a slug. No, it was a love fest. It all worked out. It all worked out. I got the right bag. Will got the right bag for himself and immediately texted me with said bag, which to let you know, that will be a post on Insta for the episode. And Tony, which I've never done that post, got his bag. Tiff [00:16:19]: Nice. Reginald Ferguson [00:16:19]: It was peace in the valley. We love all the right bag for their individual selves. But I'm here to tell you, it was a little tight, and that Big atelier very nice. The white people stood to the side. Oh, I'm trying to find a picture. But it was hilarious, because Tony, he's smooth, but he's persistent, but I wanted nothing to do with it. And Will knows it. No, because Will was like, hey, man, you're a fashion consultant. Reginald Ferguson [00:16:49]: Maybe one day we could, you know, one day I need your expertise. So I'm like, okay, this is a potential client. But Tony is just like, he's going in. Tiff [00:16:55]: Hey, man, sharks in the water. Reginald Ferguson [00:16:57]: Hey, man, sharks in the water. Are you ready? Have you decided? It was a little pressure. It was too much pressure for yeah, yeah. Will was not handling it well. Tiff [00:17:05]: Shopping. Reginald Ferguson [00:17:06]: That's why I stayed to the side. I did not want him to think that I was leading this man to make this question. Immediately after I purchased the bag, I went downstairs and took a shot on Green Street. It's tight. Yeah. And you sent it to me. Yeah, I'm looking at it. You have it? Yeah. Reginald Ferguson [00:17:24]: I've been waiting for this podcast that I messed up in November. Okay. Yeah, no, I'm showing yeah, that photo is being used. Okay. Yeah, absolutely. Tiff [00:17:33]: I'm excited to see what made the cut. Reginald Ferguson [00:17:36]: Yeah, no, it's smooth. I love the bag, actually. Now, have you been rocking it? Yeah, I love it, man. It's got that it has, like, this nappy kind of right. It's like a casantino. That's what you call it. Yeah, that's wool, right? Yeah, that nape. Yeah. Reginald Ferguson [00:17:51]: The interior, because again, I want to be clear interior, because she's taking photo and video. I was on the side of the wife at first. I was because that's where you got to go, because at first you were like, hey, man, I got to run this by her. But then the wife will agree with me. Then you kind of went dolo. Yeah, man. You were like, I'm getting you were like, no, I'm not listening to her. This is me. Reginald Ferguson [00:18:18]: This is me. Yeah. Tiff [00:18:20]: What's the name of the bag? Reginald Ferguson [00:18:23]: It's a Slow Wear, but there's another name. Oh, I didn't know it's. Slow Wear. But they have another brand name. Yeah, they do. And we're both drawing a blank. I have no clue. Beautiful. Reginald Ferguson [00:18:34]: Slow Wear is on what, prince. Prince street? Yeah. Love slow wear stuff. Yeah, you do. Yeah. Can you talk about that? Yeah. Tell me about your relationship with you and Slow. It because you were really bigging it up, as I think I shared with you. Reginald Ferguson [00:18:48]: That was my introduction to the brand. Oh, the first yeah. I just wanted to learn the brand. Oh, slow. Slow Wear. The fabrics are beautiful. The cut is beautiful. Everything's made in Italy. Reginald Ferguson [00:19:00]: It's expensive, but not super expensive. Okay. The interior is nice. When you go inside, they offer you a drink. I like that. Tiff [00:19:11]: That helps me separate me from my money a lot faster. Reginald Ferguson [00:19:16]: Tiffany, you'll be going there soon? Yes, I'm there. I like it because it's not like a gigantic brand either. I like to wear things that are nice but have an exclusive kind of thing to it. Tiff [00:19:29]: I don't need to wear labels that everybody knows and see. Reginald Ferguson [00:19:32]: No, I'm not about it's about the. Tiff [00:19:33]: Quality, about being a billboard for anybody. Very fashionable. Reginald Ferguson [00:19:38]: Slow Wear is one of those brands where high quality, but not everybody knows what you're wearing. I like know, like I said, that was my first introduction and that's very long winded answer, Tiffany, of how Will and I met. Tiff [00:19:53]: All right, well, I'm glad to hear that, that you met over bags, because we all know about your penchant for bags. Reginald Ferguson [00:20:00]: I bought no bags, ladies and gentlemen. I'm surprised Will Robinson, Tony Harris bought bags. Will Robinson's wife and myself did not buy bags. Tiff [00:20:08]: I think you're at your bag limit, so I'm glad to hear that you understand boundaries. Reginald Ferguson [00:20:12]: I'm totally at my limit. I'm looking at some of their bags now. The price is between, like, let me see, the highest price here is, like, 950, and 525 is, like, the lowest. And you bought that bag for 150? Yeah. Tiff [00:20:30]: Sample sales, everyone. Reginald Ferguson [00:20:31]: Sample sales. That's an amazing deal. My boy Tony Harris, I think his was around the same price. It was a bigger bag. I mean, to me, like I said, for both bags. What I really liked, because everyone knows on this podcast, I love bags because bags have pockets. Pockets, yes. And I'm keeping bags in business. Reginald Ferguson [00:20:50]: My bags have bags. Tiff [00:20:51]: I like dresses with pockets. Reginald Ferguson [00:20:53]: Yeah, you do. Tiff [00:20:54]: I love dresses with pockets. Reginald Ferguson [00:20:56]: The interior of both bags. Oh, beautiful. I was really impressed with yeah. You don't even expect the inside to look as beautiful as it. Exactly. That's what I like about it as well. Exactly. I felt for the bag that Tony has. Reginald Ferguson [00:21:09]: I think Tony just did it just for the sheer competition with you. I don't think it was black or black crime, but it was just something he was like, hey, man. Hey, man. It was great. But it was so great. Yeah, but the point is that bag is very large, so I just feel I know for you, you were contemplating it as a day to day bag. My wife didn't like the bag that Tony got. She didn't like it. Reginald Ferguson [00:21:34]: Okay. It's so big. It's kind of like a travel know. That's what I'm saying. I felt it was like a travel bag. The canvas was so you can't the quality you couldn't knock. And that whole leather bottom, my eyes kind of lit up to that. But the size essentially what I'm saying is Tony Harris around with it every day. Reginald Ferguson [00:21:53]: I could put you in that bag because you're my boy. But your subset perfect for, like, if you go into a business meeting and you want to look clean, and that's. Tiff [00:22:04]: What you probably want. Right. Reginald Ferguson [00:22:05]: That's what you're looking for with the leather trim and the long leather strap. Tiff [00:22:11]: Beautiful. And it's because you're a businessman. You do business. Reginald Ferguson [00:22:13]: No question. Tiff [00:22:14]: You have to look like a business. Reginald Ferguson [00:22:15]: Let's talk about this. Well, yes, I would argue that ultimately, maybe you're a businessman, but I think you're more a Renaissance man because you have your hands in a lot of different interests. Yeah. At a certain point in my life, I was doing different things. There was a point where I was doing a lot of music production. I did it here, but mostly in Paris. Right. You were representing what? You were producing that duo, like, back in the day. Reginald Ferguson [00:22:44]: Correct? KDD yeah. They're not a duo. It's actually four. It's four. Four guys, yeah. Spoken like an American rap fan. I think somewhere they were written up as a duo, but they're not a duo. That's what happens when you only know MC Solar, ladies and gentlemen. Reginald Ferguson [00:23:03]: Actually, now that we're talking about that, paris has the second biggest market for hip hop. Really? After America. Tiff [00:23:11]: What? And that's something I did not know until I started researching you. I learned so much. Reginald Ferguson [00:23:16]: Yeah, that's what she does. Tiff [00:23:17]: Reading up all about you. Like, I literally spent an entire evening you're completely fascinating. Reginald Ferguson [00:23:23]: Thank you. Thank you. Tiff [00:23:24]: If you didn't already know that about yourself, I'm going to tell you that not to blow your head up or anything, but just to let you know that I have a lot of respect for what you've done. Reginald Ferguson [00:23:32]: Thank you. Thank you. Tiff [00:23:33]: And I did a Google search for you, and you must know that your name is a pretty common name, right? It comes up a lot. Reginald Ferguson [00:23:41]: Okay. Tiff [00:23:41]: As a matter of fact, the Google search turned up when I searched it, 80 million results. Not 1000, 80 million results. What? And you showed up on page one and two. Reginald Ferguson [00:23:55]: Beautiful. Tiff [00:23:56]: With your video. There's a video that you did with the rapper and the bagpiper together. We have to talk about that. That was a wonderful collaboration. Reginald Ferguson [00:24:05]: Thank you. Tiff [00:24:06]: But the fact that you were on page one and two of 80 million for your name well, I've been written. Reginald Ferguson [00:24:12]: Up a lot of times. Tiff [00:24:14]: Yes. Reginald Ferguson [00:24:15]: Here and internationally, all over. Let's speak about the international, because let's check out your steez right now. You got this T shirt. Yeah. What does this T shirt read? It says Harlem American and Japanese. Damn. And this is my friend's brand Dard Cokesum. His company is called Harlem American. Reginald Ferguson [00:24:33]: If you look up Harlem American, you're going to see lots of tons of big celebrities wearing the Harlem American brand. And it's something that's really brilliant, because when I travel, when I wear the one that says Harlem American in English, one time I was in La. And the guy would come up to me, hey, man, are you from Harlem? I'm like, yeah, you are from Harlem. Yeah, I'm from Harlem. And then we connected and we became friends online and stuff. And then one time I was in Miami, and somebody sitting right behind us, she said, hey, you Harlem American? I said yeah. And then we knew some people, some very close people. So had I not been wearing the T shirt, we would have never met, right? So that's when I recognized the brilliance of the simpleness of a Harlem American T shirt. Reginald Ferguson [00:25:25]: And now this one is in, you know, Japanese look at me and they see Harlem American. Right? And one guy walked up to me and he said, oh, Harlem American. I said, yeah, go to the website, you can get one for yourself. Tiff [00:25:39]: And it's a nice looking T shirt. I'm looking at the seam. I'm looking at the double stitch top seam. And then, yeah, I wanted to touch it. Reginald Ferguson [00:25:48]: She loves touching it. Tiff [00:25:49]: And that seems like a cotton Lycra blend right there. Because it's a fitted tee, everyone needs in it. So it looks nice on the body, and it has a simple sheen to it. Because of the Lycra blend, I think. Reginald Ferguson [00:26:01]: Go to and quality. Get yourself a T shirt. Now for the watch, I'm wearing a Momo design watch. Checked out the watch. Tiff [00:26:10]: Oh, that's a big fat face. Reginald Ferguson [00:26:12]: Whoa. Tiff [00:26:13]: I like the big faces with the big numbers because I'm getting older. Reginald Ferguson [00:26:18]: I'm not familiar with the brand. Well, so break it down for me. Okay. Yeah, that's what I like to do. Tiff [00:26:22]: I like leather wristband, alligator stitched. Oh, alligator. Reginald Ferguson [00:26:27]: So you got the skeleton back. Tiff [00:26:30]: Oh, so you can see the works. Reginald Ferguson [00:26:31]: You can see the works. Tiff [00:26:32]: Nice. Reginald Ferguson [00:26:33]: Smooth. Tiff [00:26:34]: Very nice. May I hold it? Reginald Ferguson [00:26:36]: Yeah. It's for his Detroit haters. I bought that at Barney's. Tiff [00:26:40]: Beautiful. Reginald Ferguson [00:26:41]: About eleven years ago. Tiff [00:26:43]: That's beautiful. Reginald Ferguson [00:26:44]: Yeah. And the resale on a momo was pretty good. Like, this watch is worth pre owned, like, close to $2,000. Tiff [00:26:54]: Oh, nice. Reginald Ferguson [00:26:54]: Yikes. Yeah. Tiff [00:26:55]: That's a nice investment. Reginald Ferguson [00:26:56]: Yeah, that's good. I spent, like, almost four when I got it. And so I got this, like, eleven years ago. I've had every type of Rolex you could have. The presidentials, the chalinis, the day date. Yeah, the day dates, all of that stuff. And I got tired of wearing a Rolex, so I said, Let me get a momo one day. So I knew I was going to have this watch forever. Tiff [00:27:17]: I have a question. We talk about the resale value on these watches. So I know in the past, I've had watches, personal jewelry, things. Reginald Ferguson [00:27:26]: Like, before I cut you off, let me just give you a little history on Momo. Yeah, please. Momo. They was making all of the parts for Ferrari car parts. They started doing the car parts first. Tiff [00:27:37]: Both Reg and I tilted our heads at the exact same time. That was comical. Reginald Ferguson [00:27:42]: That's how they started. And then from the car parts and the accessories for cars, they started making timepieces. Tiff [00:27:49]: What? Reginald Ferguson [00:27:49]: It's an Italian brand? Yeah. Tiff [00:27:51]: All right. Reginald Ferguson [00:27:52]: Smoothie, smooth. Tiff [00:27:54]: Well, my question was, what makes a person part ways with a piece like this? When we talk about resale value, I know why. I let go some pieces of clothing and I take them to Salvation Army or to a Buffalo Exchange to sell so that I could buy something else, things like that. But as far as jewelry and watches go, I've always had sentimental value for some reason. Reginald Ferguson [00:28:21]: Got you. Tiff [00:28:22]: So does that not apply to men's watches or to you? I guess a personal question. Reginald Ferguson [00:28:29]: Sentimental value is definitely something that it definitely applies. But when people sell their watches or their jewelry, they need money. That's what it boils down to. Tiff [00:28:40]: So it's good to make an investment, to know that if you ever need money, you have something that you can. Reginald Ferguson [00:28:45]: Sell, you can get something back on the investment. Tiff [00:28:48]: Okay. That's a businessman's way of thinking, for sure. Absolutely. Reginald Ferguson [00:28:53]: But I'm never going to sell this watch, though. Tiff [00:28:54]: It's a beautiful watch. Reginald Ferguson [00:28:57]: Thank you. Tiff [00:28:58]: I would buy it. Reginald Ferguson [00:28:58]: So are we saying no more rolos in the house? Is that what you're saying? There's one in the stash. Tiff [00:29:07]: You got to keep one. Kind of like Ferrari, she got to keep one, right? If I could, I'd keep one. Reginald Ferguson [00:29:17]: I think the value of the aesthetic of it kind of went down because I think hip hop kind of. Made it go down. I remember back in the day when a rap artist wore Rolex. It was like, on his maybe second to third album after he sold millions of records. Now you have all these artists coming out. You never heard of them before, and they have all these Rolexes and all. Tiff [00:29:41]: This jewelry and stuff flooding the market. Everybody's got a rolex. Reginald Ferguson [00:29:46]: You never see them grow. And aspire to, they come right out with all this jewelry on and stuff. And that's supposed to be something that stamps them to make them hot. They must be dope because they're wearing a Rolex or all these jewelry. It's kind of corny to me. So it kind of, for me, kind of, like, made the value of a Rolex go down for me. Well, let's talk about that, because again, to me, you're just an overall, you know, like you said back in the day, you had your hands in many pots. I still think that you do. Reginald Ferguson [00:30:19]: Yeah, I'm in real estate now, actually. Okay. What are you doing in real estate? Tiff [00:30:23]: I didn't find that in my research. Reginald Ferguson [00:30:25]: Well, I just started sales and rentals. Everything okay. Tiff [00:30:30]: Yeah, I just started because you're a salesman at heart. Reginald Ferguson [00:30:32]: Yeah, I just graduated the that's which. Tiff [00:30:36]: Is no joke, as we know. Right, Reg? Reginald Ferguson [00:30:38]: Yeah. And I passed the state and the school test my first try as well. Boom. And that's a test that Hillary Clinton failed. JFK Jr. Failed the first time. They did it, like, two, three times before they passed. Tiff [00:30:50]: Really? Wow. Reginald Ferguson [00:30:51]: Yeah. Tiff [00:30:51]: That is some perspective right there. Reginald Ferguson [00:30:53]: Yeah. But let's talk about because, again, you're Emperor Zario to me. You've done a lot of things. You've done music, you've done art, you've done fashion. I'd like you to discourse a little bit more about, let's say, just rap and fashion. Okay. And just give your opinion because you kind of went right now, you did a comparison from old school to new school. I know you're not necessarily married or wedded to one. Reginald Ferguson [00:31:21]: Obviously, you come from the golden age, just like I do. But why don't you talk about your relationship as a producer? And like I said, I mean, you have stories for days. Okay, just give me so fashion as it applies to hip hop. Yeah. Well, I'd like to take the opportunity to talk about one of my friends. His name is Tori. You know Tory of Tori designs. Yeah. Reginald Ferguson [00:31:44]: So Tory has been, like, for the past maybe 2020 years. He's been outfitting all of the top hip hop artists that you love. Tori has been making clothes for them for the past 20 years. And Ray Kwan from Wutang was the guy who discovered him. He went to a tailor to get some outfits made for Wutang, and he noticed Tory was in the back, and he was the guy actually doing the work. So Rayquan approached him and said, hey, man, how much money are you making. So Tory told him, I'm making like 600 a week. So Rayquan was like, look, why don't you just come in and mess with me? I got $15,000 for you and I want you to make outfits for all of the Wutang clan. Reginald Ferguson [00:32:32]: And he hasn't looked back since. Tory Designs is the name of the so you got. And I mentioned Tory because he's an independent cat. He needs as much publicity. He's very well known already, but I'm just saying I have a lot of respect for him. Now, as far as hip hop and fashion and the impact of know as we all know from back in the day, run DMC, they started endorsing Adidas. Yep. We talked about and if I'm not mistaken, I think that was the first time rap artists actually got paid a lot of money. Reginald Ferguson [00:33:15]: Yeah, that was the first. That was a landmark deal. Yeah, that was a landmark deal. Right. So industry, fashion industry realized the influence that hip hop artists have on their market. And now rap artists are like billboards for all kinds of different brands. One of the things that Tori would always say, he said there's no music without clothes. He said there would be no music without clothes. Reginald Ferguson [00:33:46]: That was kind of interesting. Tiff [00:33:47]: Yeah, that's definitely an interesting I have. Reginald Ferguson [00:33:49]: To really think about that. Tiff [00:33:50]: Right. Reginald Ferguson [00:33:51]: Regardless of the era. Yeah. But the effect that the music and the culture has on the rest of the world is immense. Like, one rapper could wear something and then at the end of the day, the sales go through the roof. I mean, Jay Z had his own brand. Rockaway rocker diddy. Had he still won CDFA awards? Yeah, exactly. Yeah. Reginald Ferguson [00:34:18]: Legitimately. He's like a legit designer, actually. And we had big him up on our Zach Posen fashion Hero episode because. Tiff [00:34:28]: He collabed with Zach Posen as well. Reginald Ferguson [00:34:30]: And of course, they were inspired by Russell Simmons with the Fat Farm. Tiff [00:34:33]: Absolutely. Reginald Ferguson [00:34:35]: Yeah. So, yeah, the marriage of music and hip hop with fashion has always been there and now the guys have learned how to capitalize for themselves and make their own brands. So it's a good thing. Yes. Tiffany, you seem so mesmerized. Tiff [00:34:56]: I would absolutely agree. I think we have talked about this in our past podcasts about the influence on music, hip hop, rap on fashion, changing fashion, influencing fashion, moving fashion and selling billions of dollars worth of fashion. Like an untapped market prior to and now it was sort of like, people are making a lot of money. And I think it's great that the artists are absolutely including that in their sort of business plan in this day and age of not only am I going to make music, but I'm also going to create a brand for myself, a brand that can be marketed nowadays. Reginald Ferguson [00:35:40]: You have to they're multi hyphenates. It's not so much money in music anymore. Tiff [00:35:44]: So you have to you're diversifying your venue stream. You have to do that to stay on top because one day your music is not going to sell. Right. You might hit a bad album, but your clothing might be like what we call cock of the wall. Reginald Ferguson [00:35:59]: And people don't really buy music anymore. They consume it differently. Tiff [00:36:02]: Yes, exactly. Reginald Ferguson [00:36:03]: They listen to it and experience it, but they don't pay money for it now. Tiff [00:36:06]: Yeah. The revenue, you got to have something else that you can actually sell, diversify your revenue stream. Reginald Ferguson [00:36:13]: Now, is the music production something that you're still going to do or no, you've been doing it for so long. I've been doing music production the past couple of years for the joy of creating, not necessarily for the financial part of it. Tiff [00:36:30]: That's probably some of your best work too, right? Reginald Ferguson [00:36:32]: Yeah, just for the joy of creating it and affecting culture. A lot of the music that I've made, I've made only to affect culture. Not to make money, but to affect change. Like, I did a lot of work with The Last Poets over the years. Yeah. Tiff [00:36:48]: Is that your digging for Brown? Reginald Ferguson [00:36:51]: That was my your label, right? Yeah. Yeah. I put out some records on Umar Ben hassle The Last Poets, featuring a lot of artists like Roy Hog Grove recipes. Yeah, I saw your obviously. Yeah. You know, we all, I believe, were surprised and shocked. And then I saw your post and I was like, oh my God, you got to yeah, I was there the other night. Tiff [00:37:14]: It was pretty amazing. Reginald Ferguson [00:37:15]: Yeah. Earlier this week. Yeah, it was like two nights ago, maybe. Yeah, I was floored. I think it was Tuesday night at Lincoln Center. Okay. Because I saw the Voodoo Tour radio City back in the day. Okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:37:30]: Yeah. So when this hit on Social, I was floored, and then when I saw your thing, I was equally floored. That yeah. Cool. Can you tell us about that? I mean, you went to his Rory Hargart. Yeah, I went to the tribute Tuesday night at Jazz at Lincoln Center and 200 musical collaborators that work with Roy throughout his career performed 5 hours of music. Wow. It was beautiful. Reginald Ferguson [00:37:59]: Common showed up and he was kind of like part of the finale of it with the RH Factor. I love the RH. Yeah. And that's so funny because, like you said how music is consumed differently. Yeah. As an old school head, I'm here to tell everybody. Tiff [00:38:16]: You still have the vinyl, don't you? Reginald Ferguson [00:38:18]: No, well, I just acquired some vinyl. I mean, you know, that because of my family situation. But more importantly, I have finally embraced streaming. Oh, that's right. Tiff [00:38:27]: Wow. Took some time. That's huge, Reg. Reginald Ferguson [00:38:31]: I mean, it is what it is, right? Yeah, it is what it is. You got to keep up with it. I bought a sonos. Got a sonos. Tiff [00:38:38]: Five. Nice. I don't even have that. Reginald Ferguson [00:38:41]: Well, that's because my mini system died. Tiff [00:38:43]: That's right? Reginald Ferguson [00:38:45]: I literally was online, like, okay, let me find another mini system. I was like, Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. It's 2018 because it happened fourth quarter. Tiff [00:38:52]: Yeah, you jumped into 2019 all the way now, didn't you? This is ridiculous. Reginald Ferguson [00:38:57]: Why am I looking at a mini system? This is stupid. Yeah, I'm an older head, but I'm not a senior citizen, so I was like, It's time to step up. I had already set up a sonos years ago for a good friend of mine, Tracy Smith, and I was like, Let me do this. So the point is, once you get one, if you're not streaming, it just doesn't make sense. I mean, the interface is all promoting for that, but my overall point is, on Sundays, like at brunch, I had been doing some like, I forgot what the category was, but some type of jazz thing, and The RH Factor was coming up, and then soon after that was the news. So I was just like, oh, my gosh, I'm listening to this. Right? And then literally within a week of listening to that stream, it was from Apple Music, the news. Yeah. Reginald Ferguson [00:39:49]: I literally cried because the gravity of what we lost when Roy passed away, he was only 49 years old, right? And I remember when he was working with me in my studio, I had a studio on 23rd street, and he rolled up his sleeve when we were doing a session, and I saw a vein in his arm that was about that thick. Wow. And I realized at that point that he was dealing with dialysis, kidney dialysis and stuff like that, and that was, like, ten years ago. And he also has some issues with substance issues like the old school jazz cats. It's a music thing. Yeah, he was dealing with that. He was a brilliant, genius, man. To me, he was like the next Miles Davis in my book in terms of what he was bringing to the table, his originality, because for me, RH Factor is my favorite work by him because it's really original. Reginald Ferguson [00:41:00]: But his foundation of what he used to play as well, he used to play all of the music that came before him. He had a respect for that. And he took his knowledge of the foundation of music and took it a step further to make something more original, his own sound. And then all of those beautiful horn arrangements on Erica Badu and Commons albums and D'Angelo's albums. It was amazing, man. Tiff [00:41:28]: That'S one of the videos I watched was his call to Erica Badu. Reginald Ferguson [00:41:32]: Oh, you saw that? That was at my studio. Tiff [00:41:34]: I know. I watched every video I possibly could on you. And I love Erica Baidu, so I'm like, of course I'm going to watch. Reginald Ferguson [00:41:42]: Yeah, yeah. He was cool. I was like, Yo, call Erica for me. He got right on the phone. Tiff [00:41:48]: He's like, yeah, she's my friend. Just call her. Reginald Ferguson [00:41:51]: Whatever he said. I don't know if she's going to pick up. She picked up. Oh, lord, girl. Tiff [00:41:57]: It's like, I can't believe you picked up the phone. Reginald Ferguson [00:41:59]: Right? Tiff [00:42:00]: Yeah, but she did because he obviously. Reginald Ferguson [00:42:04]: There'S something about, you know, they're both from Texas. I didn't know that. I know she is. I didn't know. Yeah, he's from Texas. Witten Marcellus would be credited with his discovery. Tiff [00:42:18]: I didn't know that. Reginald Ferguson [00:42:19]: Wynton was the first. On Tuesday night, Witten came out with this new Orleans kind of band and they walked through the area in Lincoln center doing a march. They did a march? Yeah. It was great. It was beautiful. Tiff [00:42:35]: That is compelling. I've seen videos of marches online in New Orleans. Reginald Ferguson [00:42:41]: Terrence Blanchard played. It was everybody who was anybody was there that night. It was beautiful. It was great to be there. No, I'm sure in honor respect of what we're talking about, I think it's a wonderful segue to have you jump off on is the influence of fashion with jazz. Oh, forget about that. Yeah. I was deciding whether I was going know, throw something really fly on because, you know, when you around jazz artists, you know how they come. Reginald Ferguson [00:43:11]: They're tight. They tight. Linton is suited and booted every Lincoln center. Yeah. But I decided to just wear the Harlem american t shirt and just be low key. Cool. Tiff [00:43:24]: Say something about your hat, too. Reginald Ferguson [00:43:26]: Oh, this hat? Yeah, this is got the smooth driver's cap. I'm sorry. Break it down. That's Japanese. This is made by the armory. Oh, yeah. Downtown tribeca down at. Tiff [00:43:39]: Corduroy. Reginald Ferguson [00:43:40]: Oh, yeah, corduroy. Is Corduroy back? Tiff [00:43:42]: Like, I was going to bring it. Reginald Ferguson [00:43:43]: Up because we all know I have a corduroy suit. Tiff [00:43:49]: Yeah, dude. It kind of went to the wayside in the ditch a little bit. Corduroy was out. Reginald Ferguson [00:43:56]: No, in the had a corduroy suit as a child. Now I'm a grown ass man. Still have a corduroy suit. Right. That's what I'm saying. Yeah. Corduroy never left me. Tiff [00:44:05]: You are an anomaly. But for the most part, corduroy sort of went sort of laid down for a little bit of a rest after the 80s. Reginald Ferguson [00:44:13]: No, never. Tiff [00:44:14]: Because, you know, everybody prepping. Reginald Ferguson [00:44:17]: I'm at the side with her. Well, it kind of went away and. Tiff [00:44:21]: I think what happened to it was walking down the hall wearing your corduroys and you're making that if you had big size noise. Reginald Ferguson [00:44:30]: I never made that noise ever. Tiff [00:44:32]: Well, you are one fit human being, unlike a lot of us regular people here. You probably didn't have that issue. But I did and I totally swore off corduroys for the rest of my life. Reginald Ferguson [00:44:43]: I freaking love corduroys. Tiff [00:44:44]: Couldn't stand a sound. But I bring that up because you mentioned on your insta, I have it written right here, okay. That you were going to be bringing corduroy that Corduroy is back. Bringing Corduroy back. What did you say? Reginald Ferguson [00:44:57]: I didn't bring it back. I was letting people know it's back. Tiff [00:45:00]: It's back. Reginald Ferguson [00:45:00]: It never left. I'm not the one bringing it back. I'm just letting you all know it's back. Heavy right now. Tiff [00:45:05]: Now, are you into the big whale or the little whale? Reginald Ferguson [00:45:08]: What, the corduroy? Yeah. The thin. I like the big whale. Tiff [00:45:11]: You like the big whale? Reginald Ferguson [00:45:12]: I like the thin. I like the big whale. Tiff [00:45:15]: I think either one works. Reginald Ferguson [00:45:16]: I have a nice hat that has a matter of fact, in the picture that you saw on Insta, it had the big whale. Tiff [00:45:22]: Okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:45:23]: Yeah. That was by Sandra. Tiff [00:45:25]: That way I like the big whale because it makes a statement and it doesn't make as much noise as the little whale. Reginald Ferguson [00:45:30]: Yeah, but it's back. It's back. Tiff [00:45:33]: All right, now, we all heard that Corduroy is back. Reginald Ferguson [00:45:36]: That's fine. But I want to bring both of you back and let us talk about and again, I want you, because you're our guest, let's talk about the influence of jazz on fashion or fashion on jazz. I think it goes hand in hand. I think that, to me, the jazz artists are the most fashionable recording artists there are. That's my opinion. That's an interesting argument. It's a strong argument. It's interesting. Reginald Ferguson [00:46:03]: It could be debated. But I see because it's part of the culture. The culture is like, if you're a jazz artist and you're cool, and part of being cool is being fashionable. Motherfucker, if I can say that. Yeah. What? Tiff [00:46:19]: He just blew it out of the water. Reginald Ferguson [00:46:22]: Hold on. Tiffany really? Because yeah, you've thrown out our church audience many a time. Tiff [00:46:27]: TIFF I know. I'm just making fun. Just making fun. Reginald Ferguson [00:46:32]: That's one of the things I enjoy about jazz, is, like, I like to watch and see what they're wearing. Tiff [00:46:38]: I have to tell you, when I'm dressing all jazzy and cool, I feel like I can really throw down on some music, I think. Yeah, you get dressed up. Reginald Ferguson [00:46:46]: Some grown man shit, right. Tiff [00:46:49]: You get dressed up and you feel good about yourself. You feel cool, you feel jazzy. It's going to come out while you're singing for a man or a woman like this. You know what I mean? Reginald Ferguson [00:47:04]: And that sounds fine from both of you. But let's be clear that based on the era, the definition changes. Right? So if we're talking about King Oliver, we're talking about absolutely right. Nice. But if we're talking about Miles, miles starts from doing Bespoke when he's doing his classic stuff to when he's doing Bitches Brew. Right. And he's just wiling out. Yeah. Reginald Ferguson [00:47:34]: So my point is, I hear what you're saying. I just don't want to get too romantic about it. Meaning it changes based on the era. Tiff [00:47:40]: But doesn't the music change? Reginald Ferguson [00:47:41]: Absolutely. No, absolutely. But I just wanted to show that distinction from going from a, you know, back in, because that's where the Marshalls family is. So your music both you were talking about the March right. There's a formality. There's a formality. And then when I use as my other extreme with Miles in the bitches Brew era, he's lending his freak flag. Tiff [00:48:05]: Swampy. Is that what they call swampy? Reginald Ferguson [00:48:08]: I don't know that expression. Yeah, we're from New York. I never heard that one. But my point is it's relative. It's relative to the time. It's relative to the era. The little bit. Literally. Reginald Ferguson [00:48:21]: I only saw him once live, and then everything else was a video. If we're getting right back to who we're doing the tribute to, which is where Hargrove to me, he cornered the suited and booted. Yeah, he did, for sure. Which was smooth. And getting back to, like you said, Lincoln Center, when you look at the Jazz and Lincoln Center band, because that's under the directorship, the direction of but by the way, that's a nice time, man. Oh, thank you, man. Tiff [00:48:52]: We didn't talk about your get up tonight. No. Reginald Ferguson [00:48:54]: And that's fine. But now we are. Thank you. This is a new tie and TIFF. I think I'm going to let you do the description and will please chime in, too. Is it silk? Tiff [00:49:06]: Yeah, silk. Reginald Ferguson [00:49:08]: 100% silk. Beautiful. Tiff [00:49:09]: And it looks like a blue shark skin kind of coloring going on there. Reginald Ferguson [00:49:13]: It's a navy. But I think what everyone's caught on, and this is the reason why I purchased it is you want to describe it? Tiff [00:49:19]: It's a stitching or a top stitching around the outer edges. It looks like tinsel. It's like a silver tinsel top stitching. Reginald Ferguson [00:49:26]: I showed this to a client, big ups to Bob Bondage, and it looks. Tiff [00:49:30]: Hand done, too, which is amazing. Reginald Ferguson [00:49:32]: I agree. Yeah. I offered it to him, and he was like, I can't handle that, because it is right. And that's fine. Tiff [00:49:44]: Something very particular that I would say you can wear that in any kind of anywhere, really. Not a business moment, not a meeting. Reginald Ferguson [00:49:56]: Absolutely. Tiff [00:49:57]: I'd wear it out. Reginald Ferguson [00:49:58]: This tie is being worn. It's going to be worn. Very unique. Very thank you. Thank you. I appreciate it. Tiff [00:50:04]: Speaking of out on the town, I. Reginald Ferguson [00:50:06]: Was watching the documentary on Ralph Lauren and how he started with neckties. Yes, he started with neckties. He started with neckties. I actually have very dear friend, House of Hautendorf who was a intern there. And that whole history, it was really him and his brother okay. That were really getting into that. And I know because you mentioned low lights, which all of a sudden, our producer just perked up when we had our Ralph Lauren special. And he's from the Bronx. Reginald Ferguson [00:50:36]: We're both from New York. So my friend said that when she was an intern, she would go out on runs with Carson Presley to places like oh, I just drew a blank on the name. Daffy's. Running out, looking at yeah. Going back in time. Running out. Going to Daffy's. Grabbing know for inspiration or for a straight jack. Reginald Ferguson [00:51:01]: I'm sure to get the neck wear. So interesting that you bring that up. Yeah, that's how we started Ralph Lauren Clinton High School. Tiff [00:51:10]: All the major designers have a very small beginning, and then you turn into greatness. And that's what makes them so fascinating. But that is also kind of, sort of how we all become great, right? Reginald Ferguson [00:51:21]: Exactly. Tiff [00:51:22]: That's how you become great. And I'm segwaying into questions that I have prepared for you for this segment, that makes the segment the segment beyond the let's do it. Bring it in. So the first question I have for you, which is a standard question, but I have a little special part to it, and that is, where do you see yourself in terms of what you wanted to be when you grew up? And I want to say this in particular in relation to the photograph of you wearing crocodile pants in 1987 holding an Oscar like statue. Reginald Ferguson [00:51:59]: I told you, man, she's good. Where did you get that? Ladies and gentlemen, ladies and gentlemen, will Robin is flummox right now. That picture is on the Internet. Tiff [00:52:14]: It is. Reginald Ferguson [00:52:19]: I think I was like, 14 or 15 in that picture, and it was. Tiff [00:52:22]: An Oscar like statue you were holding. Did you want to be an actor? Reginald Ferguson [00:52:26]: I was actually doing a little acting at that time. Tiff [00:52:29]: Isn't that interesting? Do tell. Reginald Ferguson [00:52:31]: Yeah, I was an extra in the first Crocodile Dundee movie. You'll see me at the end in the subway scene. Tiff [00:52:40]: What? Reginald Ferguson [00:52:41]: Where he's running over the people's shoulders and stuff. I haven't seen it since then, but yeah, I love that movie. Yeah, I love that movie, too. That was like the biggest movie of the year. Knife. Yeah. I love that movie. Tiff [00:52:53]: Oh, my God, I totally remember that. Reginald Ferguson [00:52:55]: Paul Hogan, he said, that's not a knife. This is a knife. This is a knife. I was starring in stage plays. I danced with the dance state of Harlem. Tiff [00:53:09]: What? Reginald Ferguson [00:53:10]: Yeah, we performed at Lake Placid. Mind blown Lincoln Center a lot of places. My endeavor was derail when my parents split up, when I was, like, 15 years old. And that's when I stopped acting and stopped doing all of the creative things that I was aspiring to do. I also was painting. I was invited to Willem William de Kooning I know that much. Home out in East Hampton. Holy smoke. Reginald Ferguson [00:53:43]: He liked my work. I used to go to a place called Boys Harbor after school center on Fifth Avenue and 104th street. And the guy who owned Boys Harbor, his name was Anthony Drexel, duke of the Dukes. Of the dukes. Yeah, understood. And the Cooning was a friend of his. So what he did was he took I loved Cooning's work, so it was fascinating to find out about you. Yeah. Reginald Ferguson [00:54:08]: He took ten students work to the Cooning's home, laid it out and asked him what did he like? So, out of the 30 pieces I had, I think eight pieces in there and the pieces that he liked, he picked six of my pieces. Tiff [00:54:27]: What? Reginald Ferguson [00:54:28]: So after that, I was invited to come meet him, paint with him at his place in East Hampton. At the time, he was old and see know, he had assistance there and know, but it was an experience that was very inspiring for me. Wow. Because he's one of the greatest painters of last century. Yeah. Tiff [00:54:48]: Do you still paint? Reginald Ferguson [00:54:49]: Oh, yeah. Good. Tiff [00:54:51]: Keep doing it. You got to do it. Sounds like it's your soul. It's like one of your soul journeys. Reginald Ferguson [00:54:56]: Yeah. So I experienced, growing up, a lot of different genres in terms of artistic expression, from dance to acting to painting. I was exploring all of those avenues. And at a certain point in my life, I was doing one thing at a time for maybe five years here, five years there. Like, when I was 20, I was scoring music for television. That was my first professional situation, was television. Before I ever did a record. I was doing stuff for NBC, actually, when I was, like, 19. Tiff [00:55:33]: Wow. Reginald Ferguson [00:55:34]: Yeah. Tiff [00:55:35]: Matter of fact, not a bad gig when you're 19 years old. Reginald Ferguson [00:55:38]: Yeah. There was a series of documentaries on NBC called Images and Realities. You might remember, I don't know, but they were primetime documentaries. And the first one was Images and Realities of African American Men. And what it dealt with was the Hollywood image of black men and the reality of who we really are. And every major Hollywood black actor at that time was involved in this documentary. It was hosted by Blue Gossip Jr. I believe, was the host of the first one. Reginald Ferguson [00:56:15]: And everybody from Quincy Jones to the Wayans Brothers to Cuba Gooding Jr. Blair Underwood. Robert Gilliam. James Avery from Fresh Prince. Every major black celebrity male was in that documentary. And so I scored the theme song for that documentary. That was my first professional gig. And I was on NBC. Reginald Ferguson [00:56:43]: And then I did four more after that. Yeah. And then I went to La and met Quincy at his place. And then I sort of changed direction after that. Opened up a bike messenger company. Tiff [00:57:00]: Wait, I walked away from entertainment. You opened up a bike messenger company? That's interesting. Reginald Ferguson [00:57:07]: After meeting Quincy, what happened there? Tiff [00:57:11]: Because I would have turned it around. I thought it was going and I met Quincy, and that's when I went into my music production company. Reginald Ferguson [00:57:18]: That's when I walked away. Tiff [00:57:21]: Was it the Greatness or this ain't my thing kind of thing? Reginald Ferguson [00:57:26]: I just learned the truth of Hollywood and what really goes on behind the scenes. Tiff [00:57:31]: This is what happened to me with acting. I went to La. And I had the exact same experience because I stopped acting after that. Reginald Ferguson [00:57:37]: And I must give Blair Underwood props. Because when I first got to La It was the same project. The African American male and everybody was in the room. Cuba Gooding and all these famous actors. And Blair Underwood said, come here. He pulled me aside. He said to me, he said, Come here. Let me tell you something. Reginald Ferguson [00:58:01]: He said, don't trust nobody out here. He said, I don't care who it is. He said, I'm telling you right now, trust me, don't trust anybody. It's not what it seems. Tiff [00:58:10]: That's so. Reginald Ferguson [00:58:13]: You know, the next day, went to Quincy's House, and, you know, what he was saying was true. And I never forgot the fact that he pulled me aside and told me that he's one of the real ones out there in Hollywood. Blair Underwood. Tiff [00:58:28]: Good to know. Reginald Ferguson [00:58:29]: I give him props. Yeah. Tiff [00:58:31]: Good for you, learning that so early. Like I said, I had the exact same experience, and it really derails you. Reginald Ferguson [00:58:38]: Yeah. I was, like, 2021. I felt lucky that at least at that young age, I understood hipped. I understood what was all about. Tiff [00:58:48]: I was in my 30s. Reginald Ferguson [00:58:50]: Yeah. And I walked away from it and just decided to do something different. And then I did a bike messenger company called Miles per Minute. Tiff [00:59:01]: That is a great name for a messenger company, because that talks dollars right there. Miles per minute. Reginald Ferguson [00:59:08]: Yeah. I was successful with that. I was on bet. They had a show called Real Business on Sundays, and they featured me on Real Business. I was in YSB magazine. I remember YSB owned by Bet. I was on Teen Summit. Remember Teen summit? Yeah, I was on that show. Reginald Ferguson [00:59:27]: Bet was very supportive of me and my business. I was a young entrepreneur inspiring other people to not only think about entertainment, I was inspiring them to think about. Tiff [00:59:39]: Business right outside of yeah, exactly. Reginald Ferguson [00:59:41]: And that came out of my experience going to Hollywood and learning what was really going on. And luckily, I was blessed to still be on the same platforms as the Entertainers, but I was there as a business person. Tiff [01:00:01]: Well, amazing. That question that I asked you sort of highlighted more reasons why you are definitely a Renaissance man. You've done a little bit of everything that sort of informs who you are today and where you're going in the future, which is amazing. Reginald Ferguson [01:00:18]: Yeah. Tiff [01:00:19]: I have one last question for you. Reginald Ferguson [01:00:21]: Okay. Tiff [01:00:22]: And that is, what does the word fly mean to you? Reginald Ferguson [01:00:26]: Fly takes me back. I remember we used to use that word. Some people still do. Yeah. Fly. It means just use your imagination, to me, is what it means. Just fly. Don't be afraid to be different. Reginald Ferguson [01:00:48]: Be yourself, but also be clean. Be fresh. That's another word we used to use, right? Yeah. Fresh. Yeah, absolutely. And fly. Yeah. Fly is just wild and bold. Reginald Ferguson [01:01:10]: Somebody who's dapper. But fly is a better way to say dapper, I think. But also, before we get out of here, the scent world is crazy, too. The colognes. And that's a whole nother universe. Why are. You doing this when we got to switch. That's a nice tease, Will. Reginald Ferguson [01:01:36]: We can come back on that. You may have to come back. Tiff [01:01:39]: We might have to have a Will part, too. Hold on. Reginald Ferguson [01:01:41]: Smell me real quick. Bring that over to her. Tiff [01:01:47]: Smelling you, brother. Wow. Very earthy. Very sort of almost it's a little gray flannel. That old. Reginald Ferguson [01:01:57]: Ladies and gentlemen, I don't know how to handle yeah. Tiff [01:02:00]: Woodsy. Reginald Ferguson [01:02:01]: He's woodsy. Okay. I'm citrusy. Tiff [01:02:03]: Little woodsy with a little but he's got a floral in there, too. Reginald Ferguson [01:02:07]: I'm not asking Will to smell leela. Bow leela bowl is a great brand. Tiff [01:02:11]: What's the name of your Leela bowl? Reginald Ferguson [01:02:13]: Oh, I'm not French. French lasts all day. Tiff [01:02:17]: It does. Because if you've been putting that on since this morning, it's still strong. Reginald Ferguson [01:02:20]: Yeah, I still got mine. It's a beautiful it's a beautiful thing. I'm telling you. It's a whole nother universe. Tiff [01:02:25]: Mine's good dove. Reginald Ferguson [01:02:27]: I got friends who have hundreds, literally hundreds of scents on their dresser. Yeah. Tiff [01:02:33]: I have cats who knock them over and break my bottles. I've lost about three bottles in the past twelve months. Not going to happen. Reginald Ferguson [01:02:40]: So that's a whole nother thing. Tiff [01:02:41]: All right, well, astounding this man is amazing, I feel like we could sort of go deep diving. We could I have a lot more here that we didn't even touch on because of timing. Reginald Ferguson [01:02:54]: I can come back. Tiff [01:02:55]: So we might have to do a will in part. Reginald Ferguson [01:02:59]: Du. We could do that. Yeah. No. And again, I'm sorry that it took a few months. That was my bad. It's supposed to happen in November. Ladies and gentlemen. Reginald Ferguson [01:03:09]: He was very patient. He made it happen, and now he's going to come back. We don't know when, but expect me back. Tiff [01:03:17]: Yeah. Everybody will have to wait, ladies and gentlemen. Reginald Ferguson [01:03:21]: That may be a threat. That's a fact. He may come back next week. Tiff [01:03:24]: I don't know. Who knows? He might be doing something totally different the next time he comes around. This guy's got, like 10,000 different hats. Reginald Ferguson [01:03:30]: I know. That's why we brought him. So now we know what you do. Harlem will Robeson. Thank you so much, brother. Thank you. Thanks for having me. Tiff [01:03:38]: Thank you. All right, so, Reg, we have it. Reginald Ferguson [01:03:44]: Habits. Tiff [01:03:45]: Habits show. I mean, how can we top what we know? Reginald Ferguson [01:03:47]: We're going to move on. Tiff [01:03:49]: Okay. A bespoke tailor from Savile Road. Reginald Ferguson [01:03:56]: Oh, Savile Row. Tiff [01:03:59]: Yeah. Sorry, it's a row. It was on a road, but it was called a row. It's a row on a road. Reginald Ferguson [01:04:07]: Let's get to it. Tiff [01:04:08]: Because there were row houses. Reginald Ferguson [01:04:09]: Edward Sexton. Tiff [01:04:11]: Very nice. Very nice. I had no idea who you were talking about when you dropped this on me. I was like, oh, this is going to be fun. As soon as I saw his website. First of all, his website is a lot of throwback stuff, but classic. Reginald Ferguson [01:04:29]: Just some classic English. Tiff [01:04:31]: Yes. Reginald Ferguson [01:04:32]: Throwback to draw people in. Tiff [01:04:34]: I mean, you've got a new audience. Yeah. In the very first pages, you've got Annie Lennox wearing her suit that he designed for her in the video. Was it Sweet Dreams or something like that when she was wearing that suit? Reginald Ferguson [01:04:51]: Oh, my mom loved that song. Tiff [01:04:52]: And nothing under it, just the jacket and the pants. Reginald Ferguson [01:04:55]: I did not need to know that. Tiff [01:04:56]: By the way, he was apparently a huge tailor back in the day. Reginald Ferguson [01:05:03]: He was. I mean, he still is. That's his history. I'm not disputing mean and that's what I talk about. Tiff [01:05:10]: I talk about his history. I bring the I mean, so talk about it. Well, so he started very traditionally, as most Savile Row designers start. He started off cutting. He took cutting classes, and then he apprenticed with other tailors and did cutting for them. And then they moved up into the processes of different kinds of working with different kinds of suiting and cutting and designing. And then he coupled with this gentleman with the last name Nutters, tommy Nutter. Reginald Ferguson [01:05:43]: This is this guy by the name of come on. Tiff [01:05:45]: I love it. Reginald Ferguson [01:05:46]: Come on. Tiff [01:05:47]: I had to say his name. Reginald Ferguson [01:05:48]: Nutter our team back in the day. Tiff [01:05:51]: I just love swinging 60s. Exactly. And if you think about it, that's an amazing name. For the time period, he was the salesperson in Sexton. What? Yeah. No, sorry, go ahead. Reginald Ferguson [01:06:03]: Yeah. No, I'm just saying. Tommy Nutter as a salesperson myself. Tommy Nutter was the salesperson. He was the flash. Tiff [01:06:10]: But Edwards, he was the talent. And, I mean, he came up through the ranks. He did military uniforms for those who had passed. He apprenticed with at least two or three different other tailors before he paired with Tommy Nutter. So he brought some real skill to the game, and he ended up being, as this article that I read, the genius behind Nutters, because he really made those suits what they are. Reginald Ferguson [01:06:44]: Right. And I also want to be clear, he's no longer in Savilero if you want to say he's right, I was. Tiff [01:06:49]: About ready to say. Reginald Ferguson [01:06:51]: Okay. Tiff [01:06:53]: Well, in 82, he changed the name of the business to Edward Sexton. Reginald Ferguson [01:06:57]: Yes, well, Tommy Nutter, rest in peace, had passed on. Tiff [01:07:00]: Right. And in 1990, he left Savile Road, and he set up in Knightsbridge in a studio appointment only. But he also collaborated with McCartney. Reginald Ferguson [01:07:15]: He helped launched her. Tiff [01:07:17]: Yeah, he totally made that girl's career. I'm sorry, I have to say. I have to say mean, he was the tailor for her father, Paul McCartney. And so when she was coming up in the business, her graduation show, he helped her develop it. And she had some major model talent on the runway, sporting her wares that he helped build. And she sold that entire collection after the show. This is her graduate show. She sold it to a place called Tokyo, which is a London boutique. Tiff [01:07:52]: Like, her entire show had a buyer and sold boom. Reginald Ferguson [01:07:55]: Wow. Tiff [01:07:56]: That's unheard of. Reginald Ferguson [01:07:57]: Did not know that. Tiff [01:07:57]: And that's because of him. And he continued tutoring her after she took over for Carl Lagerfield at Chloe. But then in 1999, he's like, I'm done. I got my own bespoke clients I got to pay attention to, I have to go on. And after he left, that's when all the fashion industry was like, well, yeah, so he was really the one we're going to give credit for selling. Reginald Ferguson [01:08:25]: Is that fair? Tiff [01:08:26]: Initial success? I don't know. I wasn't a fly on the wall. I can't comment on that. I can only say what the fashion industry has published. But they can be kind of snipey a little bit, I'm sure. I mean, Stella is still in the game, so she's got some skills she's got not just some she's obviously got it. Absolutely. His influence on her first entree into the business cannot be discounted. Tiff [01:08:55]: You really can't take that away from him. Reginald Ferguson [01:08:57]: No. Understood. Tiff [01:08:58]: And that goes to tell you what kind of gentleman he is. He allowed himself to be a consultant and to be a mentor to this person and sort of send her into the stratosphere as far as designers go. And then he said, okay, I'm done. I'm going to go back to doing my thing. And that's what he's doing today. Reginald Ferguson [01:09:16]: I mean, that sounds what a mentor should do, right? Tiff [01:09:19]: Yes. Very humble, wonderful mentor. But I do have something that someone commented about him that I'd like to read. Is that possible or? You want to read it right now? Reginald Ferguson [01:09:30]: You read it. Tiff [01:09:31]: The flamboyant, exaggerated and yet perfectly poised shapes edward cut became the stuff of legend. Clashing oversized checks, rich velvets, huge kick flare trousers, eccentric sweeping lapels and extended conclave roped shoulders were all in demand. Edward's work introduced Savile Row to a new generation of creative and commercial high flyers who until then, had not understood the appeal of the stuffy bespoke tailoring offered elsewhere on the Row. Reginald Ferguson [01:10:05]: So essentially what we're saying is he took it to another level. Tiff [01:10:09]: Yes. Reginald Ferguson [01:10:09]: First of all, when him and Tommy Nutter came into the game, that was like the newest brand in Salva Row. When they knocked on the door in. Tiff [01:10:21]: The they were also doing things a little bit like they weren't sticking to the traditional. No, that's clear. Reginald Ferguson [01:10:28]: They stuck their finger. Tiff [01:10:30]: I mean, they had clients establishment. Mick Jagger and Bianca Jagger did their wedding suit and suit. Bianca got married. Reginald Ferguson [01:10:37]: I've seen a photo of that suit and suit. Tiff [01:10:39]: That's amazing to me. Also, like I said, Paul McCartney. Yoko Ono was also John Lennon. He did the suit worn on Abbey Road. John Lennon and Paul McCartney, he did their suits. I thought that would be a little bit of interesting trivia. Reginald Ferguson [01:10:55]: That's very cool. Tiff [01:10:57]: And lastly, any Harry Styles fans out there? Reginald Ferguson [01:11:02]: Anyone got some millennials in my crew? No question. Tiff [01:11:05]: He did his pink tour suit. Pink. And we're going to be talking about that episode. The man wore pink. Reginald Ferguson [01:11:16]: I wear pink. Tiff [01:11:17]: That's outrageous. And that's brilliant. Reginald Ferguson [01:11:19]: Search wears pink. Tiff [01:11:21]: Love it. I love it. And that's all I think. Reginald Ferguson [01:11:24]: Socks. Search. Yeah. I mean, it's different color, but there's pink. Tiff [01:11:30]: I love a man who wears pink. It's like pink looks great on guys. Reginald Ferguson [01:11:36]: It does. That's why I possess it. Tiff [01:11:37]: Pink looks great on anybody, honestly. Reginald Ferguson [01:11:39]: Pink shirt, pink tie. Got to coordinate. Marcus. Tiff [01:11:42]: Yep. Well, this is how Edward Sexton was ahead of his time back in the day. Reginald Ferguson [01:11:46]: So, TIFF, how do you envision me in an Edward Sexton? Like, what direction? If we were fortunate enough to get on the plane, go transatlantic, go down the Knights Bridge, and we're going to get hooked up for me for a suit by Edward Sexton, what do you envision it to be? Tiff [01:12:06]: I'm going to put you in a smoking jacket with a velvet shawl collar. Reginald Ferguson [01:12:14]: All right. Tiff [01:12:15]: Kind of laid back, but chill. Definitely. I would want some sort of damp fabric contrasting with the shawl collar. I don't want you in plaids. I don't want you in pinstripes or chalk stripes. We're definitely going to have you, but you're going to have a very nice pocket square because we have to have a little pocket there and kind of double breasted. It has to be double breasted. Reginald Ferguson [01:12:41]: Are you doing the frogs? Tiff [01:12:43]: No, I don't want you in frogs. I want you in regular double breasted. I think that would be looking nice on you. And the pants, we got to do some nice sort of relaxed fit, but I would say straight leg. I wouldn't go with flair with you because no, I don't see you in flare. Reginald Ferguson [01:13:02]: No. Tiff [01:13:03]: But cuffed. I would put you in cuffed with the smoking jacket. Reginald Ferguson [01:13:08]: Nice. If you ever look at the website, ladies and gentlemen, or even TIFF, he offers some wonderful tips. So those tips I'm giving you gratis. But when you become a client, if. Tiff [01:13:22]: It'S free, it's for me. Reginald Ferguson [01:13:26]: I will help you out. But maybe one day one day. Maybe one day. I'll get it. Tiff [01:13:34]: We'll get you there. We'll get you there. Reginald Ferguson [01:13:36]: Fingers crossed. It's a new year. Tiff [01:13:38]: All right, now planting seeds. Reginald Ferguson [01:13:41]: Yep. Tiff [01:13:41]: All right, let's move on. Next segment. Final segment. Shall we talk about Reg? Reginald Ferguson [01:13:48]: Yes. Tiff [01:13:49]: The word of the day. Reginald Ferguson [01:13:50]: The fashion word of the day. Tiffany, fashion word of the day. Tiff [01:14:03]: I'm sorry, that's fashion word. This is why you have to do these headers. You can't rely on me. You do them much better. All right, reg. I'm ready. Are you ready? Reginald Ferguson [01:14:12]: Always ready. Tiff [01:14:13]: All right. You want me to throw you mine first? Reginald Ferguson [01:14:14]: Absolutely. Tiff [01:14:15]: All right. So first of all, for those newcomers, the fashion word of the day is when we each bring a word for each other to define. I think you mentioned this earlier. Define it. And if we get it correct, well. Reginald Ferguson [01:14:26]: Define and spell define using a sentence. Tiff [01:14:28]: And then use in a sentence. Go see corduroy. Reginald Ferguson [01:14:36]: C-O-R-D-U-R-O-Y. Tiff [01:14:42]: Correct. Now define corduroy. Reginald Ferguson [01:14:46]: Corduroy is a cotton that is defined by a thin or a wide whale. Tiff [01:14:52]: All right. Okay. That's good. Reginald Ferguson [01:14:56]: Thank you. Tiff [01:14:57]: That's good. Reginald Ferguson [01:14:57]: I try. And here's my sentence. Tiff [01:15:00]: Hold on. You know, I have a lengthier. Some people understand the application of corner. We might be dealing with some newbies no, I know. Reginald Ferguson [01:15:09]: This is a school arm in you do your thing. Tiff [01:15:12]: A cotton fabric composed of twisted fibers that, when woven, lie parallel to each other. This helps to form the fabric's distinct cord pattern, which runs either horizontally or vertically. We like the vertical. Reginald Ferguson [01:15:28]: Yeah, I like the horizontal. Tiff [01:15:30]: And the width of the cord is called the whale. So the wider the whale. Yes, exactly. All right. Reginald Ferguson [01:15:39]: Terribly sorry. I'm actually going to jacket from when we had our guest. I had a corduroy suit when I was a child and I have a corduroy suit now. Tiff [01:15:48]: Excellent. Reginald Ferguson [01:15:49]: God's honest truth. Tiff [01:15:51]: I believe you because I think I. Reginald Ferguson [01:15:52]: Saw your corduroy yeah. When we did a recording. And it's also on my Insta navy, right? No, it's a charcoal gray and it is fly. Tiff [01:16:03]: Always be fly. Reginald Ferguson [01:16:04]: All right. Are you ready? This is a layup for you, TIFF. Oh, my God. Ladies and gentlemen, she just threw off her glasses and she's tying up her hair and now she's waving her hands to create a breeze. Buffalo plaid. Tiff [01:16:19]: Buffalo plaid.

Reginald Ferguson [01:16:31]: Yes. Tiff [01:16:32]: But buffalo plaid. Yeah. How do I not know what that is? Reginald Ferguson [01:16:36]: I don't know. It's the winter. Tiff [01:16:38]: Hit me up. Reginald Ferguson [01:16:40]: A plaid with large blocks formed by the intersection of two different colored yarns, typically red and black. Tiff [01:16:48]: All right. I can absolutely visualize it. Reginald Ferguson [01:16:51]: I thought, of all people I never. Tiff [01:16:53]: Knew that was called a buffalo plaid. Reginald Ferguson [01:16:55]: But she would have knocked that out the park. No, I was like, let me give her a gift for the new year. Tiff [01:17:00]: No. Reginald Ferguson [01:17:01]: Yipes. Tiff [01:17:02]: Wow. You stumped me. Reginald Ferguson [01:17:03]: Look at that.
