Reg and Tiff experience the Panamanian parade with their boots on (guess who wants to go barefoot?), Reg explores Red Hook and Tiffini explains what it’s like to live in the home of Michael Jordan (the state, not the mansion).


Reginald Ferguson [00:00:01]: Hello, I'm Reg. Tiff [00:00:02]: And I'm TIFF. And we're the fashion geeks trying to make New York and the world. Reginald Ferguson [00:00:06]: Well, New York is the world. Tiff [00:00:07]: A little flyer, one outfit and podcast at a time. Reginald Ferguson [00:00:15]: Hey, we're back again. Welcome to the ride. Tiff [00:00:17]: Yay. Reginald Ferguson [00:00:18]: We are the fashion geeks. My name is Reg. Tiff [00:00:21]: And I'm Tiffany. Reginald Ferguson [00:00:23]: For those who are new, it's great to see you. For those who have come back, it's good to see you again. Tiff [00:00:28]: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for returning. We really appreciate you. I mean, more than anything. Reginald Ferguson [00:00:34]: Yeah, absolutely. I feel very festive today because we entered through something that is not only about culture, but fashion, and fashion is culture. The Panamanian Day parade. Tiff [00:00:46]: And it is packed, packed, packed, wall to wall people. Like, I've never seen a parade so well attended in my whole life. Reginald Ferguson [00:00:55]: I think, fortunately, I have my producer search here to refute that. That's Tiffany pact. This is not the west Indian day parade, everybody. Tiff [00:01:03]: I haven't made it out to that one yet. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:04]: This is a minor league parade. Nothing against my Panamanians, particularly my baba Panama, who I know is going to be listening. So when I come to the shop don't do me like that. I'm just saying because I gave him the heads up that I was going to be in its midst. This is a smaller parade too. Tiff [00:01:21]: Wow. I got to tell you, it was a bad day to wear heels. My feet. I will walk barefoot now because oh. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:32]: No, please don't be that one. Not in this neighborhood. Don't be that one. Tiff [00:01:38]: It's definitely walk barefoot. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:40]: No, please. Tiff [00:01:41]: After an evening of please, I know. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:42]: Sir knows what I'm talking about. Please do not do this. Those heels are just one inch. I witnessed them. I watched them. They're nice cowboy boots. They're one inches. Tiff [00:01:52]: They're suede and leather. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:54]: Please hang in there. Tiff [00:01:56]: Okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:01:56]: I have suede Chuckas today. Desert boots. Tiff [00:02:00]: Okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:02:01]: Yes. Tiff [00:02:02]: How did we do that? Reginald Ferguson [00:02:03]: Well, how cute. Yeah, well, I have to change it up. It's the weekend. I am not suiting thai fly on Saturdays and Sundays. Tiff [00:02:13]: No, you are not. You're other kind of fly. Reginald Ferguson [00:02:15]: Well, thank you. Tiff [00:02:16]: You're like casual chic. Reginald Ferguson [00:02:20]: Rocking? I'm rocking some Paul Smith deserts with the wavy vibram sole. See the off white canvas slack of the lacquers? Tiff [00:02:30]: Very nice. After labor day, I'm going to add it's off white. Reginald Ferguson [00:02:33]: It's not white. The last episode when we were all together, I rocked white Levi's when I was doing my red, white, and blue kaboom. But this is off white. Tiff [00:02:44]: Yes, but I love the fall colors you got going. That's exactly you have the colors of maple leaves. You got, like, a rusty burnt orange, and then you got a nice deep yellow kind of yellowish with a tinge of I would say brown to bring it into a deepness and then that lovely, beautiful burgundy. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:04]: Thank you. Yeah, no, it's definitely burgundy. It's a burgundy cotton sweater. Because when this seasonal change happens, I start rocking cotton sweaters. Tiff [00:03:13]: Yes. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:14]: Just to exhaust them before we have to go into wool sweaters. Tiff [00:03:17]: Right. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:18]: See, I rock this. I don't need a jacket. No, I got my scarf, which is wool, but it's a light grade of wool. Tiff [00:03:26]: Yes. I think I have one just like that, to be honest. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:28]: Oh, let's not get them. Tiff [00:03:30]: I'm going to wear it next time and show you. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:31]: Okay. I will make sure not to wear this next time to show you. Tiff [00:03:35]: So, Reg, let's let the people know, the ones who are joining us, who. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:39]: We certainly I'm Reg Ferguson. I am the creator of New York fashion geek. New York Fashion Geek is a fashion consultancy in which we help the man become the flyest that he can ever be. Tiff [00:03:53]: The everyday man. Reginald Ferguson [00:03:54]: Absolutely. That's extremely important. Essentially, we want to upgrade your look. We go from closet inventory all the way down to personal shopping and everything between. Consider me your personal trainer for fashion. Tiff [00:04:06]: God, I love that. Work it out. Work it out. Reginald Ferguson [00:04:09]: Yeah. Yeah. Let's do some reps. One tie, two ties. Tiff [00:04:13]: That's very clever. Reginald Ferguson [00:04:14]: Thank you. Tiff [00:04:14]: I am Tiffany Minutel Schreiber. I'm an ex costume designer. I still love it. I just don't do it. Did it for many, many years. And I come to this podcast to bring an angle know? Reg works on the style. Reg works on putting stuff together. I used to build it, I used to sew it, I used to design it, and I used to build it for costumes, that is. So I come to fashion from a historical point of view because a lot of costumes are based on past fashion, because I used to do historical costumes. So whatever folks wore back in the day, if we did a show and we needed to recreate that, I made costumes based on the fashions. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:00]: Very nice. Tiff [00:05:01]: That's why I'm interested in it. And what we're doing here, we're talking about the podcast. We're just basically augmenting the website that you have and the Instagram account that you have for your fashion consulting business. Right? Reginald Ferguson [00:05:15]: Yep. Yep. Tiff [00:05:16]: We just want to get out, reach more people out there, bring you into our fold so that the Reg can make you look your utmost best. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:25]: Exactly. Be down with the Nyfg. It's a free consultation. You can DM me on instagram. The Insta is New York fashion geek. Hopefully you saw the Post recently in which you saw me studiously inferiorly, working on content for this podcast. Thank you. Thank you, sir. Tiff [00:05:43]: Nice. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:44]: Yeah. Overlooking the water. Tiff [00:05:48]: Whoa. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:48]: Yeah. I was at Red Hook. Tiff [00:05:50]: Nice. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:50]: They gave me a pass. Tiff [00:05:52]: That's good. When you have a creative outlet, a creative view, the juices flow. Reginald Ferguson [00:05:57]: I was forced by House of Hawthendorf I know who they are. To get out of my four walls of my mind, aka my apartment. Tiff [00:06:08]: You either have a never mind. Forget that. So I did. Reginald Ferguson [00:06:14]: I explored. Tiff [00:06:15]: Big apartment, small apartment, big mind. Small mind. Reginald Ferguson [00:06:17]: I have a big apartment, but I'm known to just stay in my apartment if I'm not outside. So took advantage of this beautiful weather, got to walk around, got to write, got to hang out. Bought some pots, flower pots at Ikea. Tiff [00:06:34]: Did you put anything in them? Reginald Ferguson [00:06:36]: Yeah, I transferred plants. I have a series of succulents. I have some jade plants, and they grow very furiously and intensely. So it was time to do a transfer from one pot to a bigger pot. They got to grow, has these lovely big pots at a great price. And I know my late grandmother is just laughing from up above because she was a real green thumb, old school phrase. Tiff [00:07:01]: Do your pots match your suits? Reginald Ferguson [00:07:03]: My pots match my decor of my living room. Tiff [00:07:08]: You just want to make sure. Reginald Ferguson [00:07:11]: If you want to be able to get down to it. Yes. Every outfit I have on matches my living room. Tiff [00:07:17]: Very nice. I can't wait to see that. Reginald Ferguson [00:07:22]: Well, it's funny you say that, because I'm about to probably do some more interior decorating design. It's time to reinvent my entertainment center. Tiff [00:07:32]: Yeah, that's interesting. So not only do you style and you probably can style and consult beyond the actual wear to the lifestyle no. Reginald Ferguson [00:07:43]: We'Re going to take our time a little bit. I'm not Lenny Kravitz. Tiff [00:07:46]: We're not going to the lifestyle yet. Reginald Ferguson [00:07:48]: That's all I'm saying. I'm not at that level. I can nickel and dime it. I can muck around. My strength, really, and clearly is really having my clients understand what they're wearing, why they're wearing it, why it's good, why it isn't good, understanding things that fit, match, coordinate, clash, all that. To me, I feel gifted because that really comes from my family. Tiff [00:08:13]: And I think you push boundaries, too, and some of the stuff I see you wear yeah, you push some boundaries, which I think is great. You move from conservative to creative, which is the fly part. Reginald Ferguson [00:08:24]: Oh, thank you. Tiff [00:08:24]: Which brings me to my next question. Reginald Ferguson [00:08:26]: Yes. I'm being fashion grilled. Tiff [00:08:29]: I'm sure all of our listeners are wondering, what exactly does it mean? What do you mean when you say always be fly? Reginald Ferguson [00:08:38]: Well, first of all, as a native New Yorker and any native New Yorkers listening or just fans of the city, the apple, it's an old school phrase. Tiff [00:08:49]: That it is. Reginald Ferguson [00:08:51]: I've heard it since I was a child. The fact that you're aware of it. Tiff [00:08:53]: And you bring it fly back here. Reginald Ferguson [00:08:55]: No, it never left. It never, ever left to me. Tiff [00:08:59]: It never left. I don't know about the millennials. Reginald Ferguson [00:09:01]: No, I don't care who you are. If I use that expression, if I use that word, no one is confused here in the city. No one. I don't care what age you are. And because I started hearing that word and I've incorporated a phrase, obviously, which is endemic to my brand. ABF always be fly, since I was a child. To be fly means to be sharp. It means to be dapper. Tiff [00:09:28]: Gotcha. Reginald Ferguson [00:09:29]: It means to be the best that you can be. Certainly old school rap. Anyone in the arena hearing me and feeling me right now. Casanova Fly, aka Grandmaster Kaz fly boys, fly girls, b boys, be girls. So that's all that that comes from. It just never left me. And it's great when I meet people who are younger than me and I use that phrase, or I'll even hear them. I'll even hear them. That's awesome, as you know, but the listeners don't know. We have also and if anyone out there in the network side is hearing me, please revisit this. We tried to launch a reality TV show for this brand, and we've tabled that indefinitely. But one of the people I was doing it with, he was like, I just wanted to be fly like you. That was unprovoked. Tiff [00:10:26]: So it's not just how you wear how you wear what you wear. It's your attitude in everything that you do as well. Reginald Ferguson [00:10:33]: Yes, absolutely. But fashion is attitude. Style. Tiff [00:10:36]: I agree. Reginald Ferguson [00:10:36]: Style and fashion are attitude, right? Because obviously they're interchangeable. Fashion could be of the moment, style is forever. But it's definitely how you present yourself. And again, I just have to evoke and revoke the true old school era of rap and of hip hop. And you just wanted to be in a fly pose like I'm doing right now. Just like the old school, with your elbows and your hands. So I always just felt, let's just keep that going. Tiff [00:11:12]: All right. I am clear, and I'm pretty sure everybody else is clear, too. I kind of was clear anyway, just from hanging out with you. I appreciate that. I get that fly essence from you every time we hang. Reginald Ferguson [00:11:22]: Thank you. Tiff [00:11:23]: To me, it's obvious. So let's talk about something significant that happened with us during Fashion Week for a podcast launch. We had a launch party. Reginald Ferguson [00:11:35]: Yes, we did. We had the M bar at the Mansfield Hotel. Big shout out to Erwin. Gave us a lot of love there. Tiff [00:11:42]: Oh, my gosh, he did. He hooked us up with some happy hour drink specials. He sectioned off a very swanky part of the bar for us and everybody who attended. Thank you all for coming. Reginald Ferguson [00:11:52]: Absolutely. Tiff [00:11:54]: It was a nice, cute, quaint affair. If you can throw in another adjective if you want to. Reginald Ferguson [00:12:00]: But no, you're good. Tiff [00:12:01]: It felt like a ton of support. Reginald Ferguson [00:12:04]: Absolutely. Tiff [00:12:04]: Very warm. Everybody was smiling and laughing. We were just having a great time sizing up each other's know? I have to say, I was very excited to wear my dress that I wore. I was wearing a dress that was very Audrey Hepburn, my fashion hero. It was a sheath dress, fitted sheath dress, shall we say. But I got it the store that I purchased it at was a consignment store resale store. Reginald Ferguson [00:12:32]: All right. Right on. Tiff [00:12:33]: So my kind of style is more bohemian. It's more thrift store kind of stuff. I kind of like that kind of feel. I mean, I do have to buy some new pieces from time to time, but I was so excited to find this dress. It was beautiful. It was a deep, dark red, and I rocked it with these beautiful lavender suede pumps. I matched the red, and it wasn't even a light lavender. It was a deep lavender coordinate. Yeah. And I got it from a place called Thrifty Hog. So the reason why I love Thrifty Hog so much and I met the proprietor who was an ex model, and she created this thrift store to help fund her not for profit, which is basically to help homeless women and children find a place to live, go to school, just basically get them off the street. Reginald Ferguson [00:13:24]: Nice. Tiff [00:13:24]: So 100% of the proceeds from Thrifty Hog, which is right next to her high end designer brand retail store. Reginald Ferguson [00:13:32]: All right. Tiff [00:13:32]: But 100% of the Thrifty Hog proceeds goes to this foundation. Reginald Ferguson [00:13:37]: Very nice. Tiff [00:13:37]: And I'll recognize the foundation later on when we thank everyone, so everybody be aware. Reginald Ferguson [00:13:43]: Yeah, true. That's important. Tiff [00:13:45]: All right, well, I think it might be time to move on into one of my favorite segments that we do. This is when we talk about our fashion heroes. Reginald Ferguson [00:13:59]: Fashion. Fashion. Boy, you are going to be surprised with this one. Tiff [00:14:08]: Well, I saw it and I was like, okay, I get this guy as a hero, but a fashion hero? I mean, beyond the obvious, of course. So I can't wait till you well. Reginald Ferguson [00:14:20]: First of all, have you been break it down. Have you been looking at my notes? I thought this was going to be a surprise. Tiff [00:14:24]: Oh, no. You give me a heads up by telling me, but you don't tell me anything beyond that. Reginald Ferguson [00:14:30]: Okay, well, the listeners are going to be surprised. Tiff [00:14:33]: That's right. That's the whole point. Reginald Ferguson [00:14:34]: Today's fashion hero is not whom you expect. It's michael Jordan. Tiff [00:14:40]: Michael Jordan? Reginald Ferguson [00:14:41]: Yep. Tiff [00:14:42]: The basketball player? Ex basketball player. Entrepreneur. MJ MJ. He's from my state. Reginald Ferguson [00:14:50]: I know. Tiff [00:14:51]: North Carolina. Reginald Ferguson [00:14:52]: I figured you'd probably be taking this over. Tiff [00:14:54]: Well, I have to tell you, that huge fan. Reginald Ferguson [00:14:58]: Oh, what a surprise. Tiff [00:14:59]: Huge fan for many reasons. Reginald Ferguson [00:15:01]: Oh, what a surprise. Tiff [00:15:02]: He's from North Carolina. Reginald Ferguson [00:15:02]: Right? I was going to say, it's probably just one reason. Tiff [00:15:04]: He was a Carolina tar Hill. However, that was one drawback. Because I'm a Dupe Blue Devil fan. Reginald Ferguson [00:15:10]: Oh, you're a Cameron crazy. Tiff [00:15:13]: Sure am. I'm one of two family members in my whole family who are Duke Blue Devil fans. Everybody else is a Tar Hill fan. Reginald Ferguson [00:15:22]: How does that sorry. What side of the tree trunk do you get to sleep on? Because you don't get to sleep in the house. Tiff [00:15:29]: Well, my mother always did call me different, Tiffany. You are different. That's what I would always hear. So maybe that's why. Reginald Ferguson [00:15:37]: Well, I'm glad you guys got a pass, because I can't imagine oh, my God. Tiff [00:15:41]: I think the whole state of North Carolina loves Michael Jackson. Okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:15:44]: Michael Jordan. Tiff [00:15:44]: I mean, Michael Jordan. I'm sorry. The other MJ the other MJ. Reginald Ferguson [00:15:48]: This is number 23 or 45, and. Tiff [00:15:53]: He has a car dealership in North Carolina. This is huge. A lot of times when you retire from the NBA, if you're smart, you've socked away your money and you've outside investments so that you can grow your money. Reginald Ferguson [00:16:07]: He has done that. Tiff [00:16:08]: Yes, he has. He certainly has. And apparently he's done it in fashion, from what I'm hearing from you. Reginald Ferguson [00:16:13]: Yeah. I mean, there's no question. I want to explain this. We are not talking about Michael Jordan, the ball player who I loved until he started beating my Knicks, and then I hated him. But we're talking about Michael Jordan, the brand Air Jordan. I was a Nike kid growing up. Also Adidas Run DMC one of our other fashion. Tiff [00:16:35]: Got to throw that in there. Reginald Ferguson [00:16:36]: Had a few pairs, wore them on the weekends. I wore shoes during the week, except for gym and sports. Nike comes out with a shoe that is banned by the NBA. Tiff [00:16:49]: What? Reginald Ferguson [00:16:50]: Yep. Tiff [00:16:52]: A shoe that's banned by the NBA. Reginald Ferguson [00:16:54]: Yes. That was how Air Jordan got introduced to the world. These shoes are banned by the NBA? Tiff [00:17:01]: Would they have special powers or something? Reginald Ferguson [00:17:04]: Well, it's funny you say that. Tiff [00:17:05]: Unfair advantage for those who didn't wear them. Reginald Ferguson [00:17:08]: Well, those who did wear them. Every boy knows. I'm not saying every girl doesn't, but every boy knows. When you get a new pair of sneakers I know. Search is my witness immediately. You think you can run faster? You can jump higher? Tiff [00:17:21]: Oh, yes. Reginald Ferguson [00:17:22]: Hopefully, you're the envy of your class, your block. These come out. The reason why they're banned, because at the time, those were the red and black Air Jordans. Tiff [00:17:32]: Red and black. Reginald Ferguson [00:17:33]: Right. And that was the problem. There was no white in the sneaker to match the uniform. They had the uniform of the Bulls. Tiff [00:17:41]: The Chicago Bulls. That's right. Because he played for the Chicago Bulls. Reginald Ferguson [00:17:44]: Yes, he did. Tiff [00:17:45]: And the shoes got to match the uniform. Reginald Ferguson [00:17:48]: They did, but they didn't, because there was no white in the original ones. The original ones were red and black. Tiff [00:17:54]: Okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:17:54]: They incorporated eventually. Red, white, and black. Tiff [00:17:57]: You think they did that on purpose? Reginald Ferguson [00:18:00]: Yeah, absolutely. Tiff [00:18:03]: Okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:18:03]: But it was just amazing. I remember literally reading the newspaper and seeing an ad, this sneaker is banned by the NBA. So immediately, your eyes are like, Whoa, what is this? I never saw anything like that. When I was going to school in the Bronx. Up in the Bronx, where the people are fresh and fly, I saw this billboard of Michael Jordan every day, and he had a red and black top, red and black warm up pants in those. Jordans and he's in the pose that now is the Jump Man logo. Tiff [00:18:39]: Okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:18:40]: Jump man. Jump man. Tiff [00:18:41]: But the trademark, right? Trademark for the brand. Reginald Ferguson [00:18:44]: Yes. But what people need to realize is that was not the first logo. Tiff [00:18:48]: Okay? Reginald Ferguson [00:18:50]: The first logo was a bunch of clouds with a basketball in the middle with the words Air Jordan. Tiff [00:18:57]: I don't even remember that. How far back does that go? Reginald Ferguson [00:19:02]: I was there. Tiff [00:19:03]: Wow. Reginald Ferguson [00:19:04]: Yes. The 80s. Tiff [00:19:06]: Or maybe it's just blocked it out, because all I think of whenever I think of Air Jordan is that right? Reginald Ferguson [00:19:12]: Not at first. Tiff [00:19:13]: All right. Reginald Ferguson [00:19:13]: Not at first. Tiff [00:19:14]: That shows how good that logo is. The fact that I probably did see the original logo amazing. Reginald Ferguson [00:19:20]: It's an amazing image. Like I said, I literally was going to school every day, either in a car or on the bus, and I would just see that and just be like, inspired. Tiff [00:19:28]: You were inspired? Reginald Ferguson [00:19:29]: I don't know if I was inspired. I just was amazed. Tiff [00:19:32]: You were inspired to want those sneakers? Reginald Ferguson [00:19:35]: No, because I valued my life. Tiff [00:19:38]: Oh, really? Reginald Ferguson [00:19:39]: Yes. Tiff [00:19:40]: What's that about? Reginald Ferguson [00:19:41]: Well, we're going to talk about that. And by the way, as we're talking about inspiration, he's rocking the league at that time, and I'm rooting for him until he starts beating my team. Tiff [00:19:54]: Oh, Rich. Reginald Ferguson [00:19:55]: No, it's serious fan. And he was cool. He was cool with all that other stuff. 63 Celtics. I was there. I was watching. It was amazing. He started beating my team, and I decided to hate him. And he hated my team, too. I mean, it was mutual. But back then, players had sneaker endorsements. I mean, there's no question about that. But nothing like this. Tiff [00:20:20]: This blew it out of the water. Reginald Ferguson [00:20:22]: And let me explain why. He had a new sneaker every year. Tiff [00:20:27]: Really? Reginald Ferguson [00:20:28]: Yes, every year. Tiff [00:20:29]: And that is unusual. Reginald Ferguson [00:20:30]: Absolutely. Tiff [00:20:31]: Because it was different. I remember that. Reginald Ferguson [00:20:33]: No one did that. Currently, there's at least 30 this has been going on for at least 35 years now. Tiff [00:20:38]: He has 35 different styles of minimum of Air Jordan. Reginald Ferguson [00:20:42]: Minimum? Minimum. Tiff [00:20:44]: Wow. Reginald Ferguson [00:20:44]: Yes. Tiff [00:20:46]: I do remember seeing lines on the TV, lines outside of sneaker stores, like, the night before it was going to open. When I was growing up. I grew up in, so I oh, my God. We didn't sleep outside the stores, I don't think. Maybe they did. Reginald Ferguson [00:21:01]: Oh, you did? Because they did in I mean, and they still do that. There's still capsule collections. People in front of Nike Town, people at supreme. Tiff [00:21:11]: That's amazing. Reginald Ferguson [00:21:12]: It was amazing, and it still is. All for a sneaker, all for some kicks. That was like getting a new Madden, but for sneakers. I never saw anything like that. And his were the first sneakers to not have the manufacturer's logo. I never saw that ever before in my life. Tiff [00:21:32]: So you didn't see the nike swoosh. Reginald Ferguson [00:21:36]: After the second version. The second version, no swoosh. Also, that second version, the only sneaker to be made in Italy, never happened before. Tiff [00:21:46]: Wow. Reginald Ferguson [00:21:47]: Yeah. Tiff [00:21:47]: Because they all had that Jump Man logo on. Reginald Ferguson [00:21:51]: No, you'd have the jump, man. Maybe. I mean, to be honest, you didn't have the Jump Man logo on anything for quite a while. To your point. The very first, they have the swoosh. The second version, no swoosh. Tiff [00:22:02]: No swoosh. Reginald Ferguson [00:22:03]: No swoosh. Tiff [00:22:04]: Nike stepped aside and said, Take it over Jordan. Reginald Ferguson [00:22:06]: Exactly. Tiff [00:22:06]: Wow. Reginald Ferguson [00:22:07]: And that was amazing. I never saw huge. Yeah. I never saw anything like that. I didn't have any brands of sneakers that ever did that. Because if you did that, you couldn't identify the sneaker. Tiff [00:22:16]: Right. Reginald Ferguson [00:22:17]: Then Spike comes along with the campaigns. Is it the shoes? Michael versus Mars blackman. And then we're eating this up. I mean, it's a machine, and this is Steamer on all of us. And we're just mesmerized. But not all has been good with that. Absolutely. Well, 1st, first, the inhumane work conditions in China. Tiff [00:22:45]: Yeah. That pretty much hit the entire fashion industry from top to bottom, but it. Reginald Ferguson [00:22:50]: Really stung him and the brand. And also pay. Tiff [00:22:55]: Yep. Reginald Ferguson [00:22:56]: Throughout various parts of Asia, any place there was a factory, there was a problem. And that lifted to your point, that lifted the COVID off a terrible secret behind what goes on overseas. Tiff [00:23:07]: Thankfully. Reginald Ferguson [00:23:07]: Yeah, because I didn't I mean, did you know we're little kids. You don't know anything about that. Tiff [00:23:11]: You're made in China as a consumer. You just look, you see, you buy. That's what you do. You don't think. You don't investigate. You just buy. Reginald Ferguson [00:23:19]: Right. Tiff [00:23:19]: Until you get older and you start having questions. Reginald Ferguson [00:23:22]: Right. You just do it. Tiff [00:23:23]: Because that was his target market, was youth. Reginald Ferguson [00:23:26]: Right, exactly. And then, of course, also expendable income. Tiff [00:23:30]: Or what is that called? Reginald Ferguson [00:23:31]: Disposable income. Tiff [00:23:32]: Disposable income, right. Reginald Ferguson [00:23:33]: Exactly. And then let's revisit something you asked me about earlier. Let's talk about the violence. Tiff [00:23:40]: The violence? Reginald Ferguson [00:23:41]: Yeah. I mean, people were getting killed because of these shoes. Tiff [00:23:44]: Wow. Reginald Ferguson [00:23:45]: I hadn't seen anything like that since Puma Clyde's back in the day as a New Yorker. And that really reflected a cultural shift because of the high price of the item. They were highly coveted and very inaccessible. Tiff [00:23:58]: So you'd be robbed walking down the street wearing your shoes. Reginald Ferguson [00:24:01]: Absolutely. You get VICT old school expression. Tiff [00:24:05]: They didn't want your wallet, they wanted your Air Jordan. Reginald Ferguson [00:24:07]: Yeah, absolutely. Tiff [00:24:08]: Wow. Reginald Ferguson [00:24:09]: There was no question. And that's why there was no way I was getting them. I valued my life, and they were really expensive, and I was rocking Nikes. So there were other Nikes. Tiff [00:24:20]: Yeah, the other Nikes that were, like, half the price or even more, even. Reginald Ferguson [00:24:25]: It was two thirds. There was just no way. There was no way those Jordans were entering the house. Tiff [00:24:30]: Got it. Reginald Ferguson [00:24:30]: I mean, I had other Nikes that I remember kids in my high school were sizing me up. Tiff [00:24:38]: No way. No. Reginald Ferguson [00:24:40]: But it really reflects something now, because to this day, I do not understand a baby having Air Jordan yeah. Tiff [00:24:46]: I think or a baby having any kind of sort of designer brand stuff on. No sense going to grow out of that in two months. Reginald Ferguson [00:24:52]: It's a problem. Tiff [00:24:54]: It's ridiculous. Reginald Ferguson [00:24:55]: It's really a problem. And it illuminates a misplacement of values in a Western consumerist society like ours. When I see that in particular, if I see it of my folks, it's a problem. It is a problem. This baby, this child, this toddler does not even know what he or she is wearing. This is so important to the family to do this. No. Could Jordan have done anything to lower the price? I don't know. I truly don't. But it leads something that you probably remember because you're from NC. And this is even more telling as we tinkered around a little bit early in the catching up section. Fashion's role in politics. Tiff [00:25:37]: Yes. Reginald Ferguson [00:25:38]: Oh, do you remember this? I remember it. Tiff [00:25:42]: You got to talk a little yesterday, talk a little bit more. Maybe trigger something. Reginald Ferguson [00:25:46]: 90. Tiff [00:25:47]: 90. Where was I? Okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:25:49]: You had a senator. His name is Jesse Helms. Tiff [00:25:53]: Oh, my God. I was out of North Carolina by then, thankfully, in Pennsylvania. Reginald Ferguson [00:25:57]: How convenient. Well, whether you were there or not, at the time, he was being challenged by Harvey Gantt. Do you remember that name? Tiff [00:26:06]: I vaguely yes. Absolutely. Reginald Ferguson [00:26:08]: Harvey Gantt was African American. When Jordan was asked to endorse Gantt, he said, Republicans wear sneakers, too. Tiff [00:26:17]: Wow. Reginald Ferguson [00:26:18]: Yep. And because of his impact on popular culture at the time, it is argued that the backing of Gantt, his backing, if he had done that for Gantt, could have influenced African American voting turnout. Tiff [00:26:30]: And probably changed absolutely. Agree 100%. Reginald Ferguson [00:26:33]: Probably change the election result. Tiff [00:26:35]: We've seen that in the recent elections. You get the vote out, you have all kinds of visibly high visible personalities. Endorsing certain candidates. Boom. You got to hire a voter registration, voter turnout. It makes a huge difference. Reginald Ferguson [00:26:55]: I think it could have. Tiff [00:26:57]: Okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:27:00]: He chose not to. Tiff [00:27:04]: Well, that's a real shame. Reginald Ferguson [00:27:06]: Yeah. So, I mean, the Jordan Brand, like I said, has been around for so long, over 30 years with a wealth of names behind it. I mean, Russell West represents Chris Paul carmelo. Jeter was on the Jordan brand. Tiff [00:27:18]: Really? Reginald Ferguson [00:27:19]: Yeah. Absolutely. Tiff [00:27:20]: Jeter was wearing Jordans. Reginald Ferguson [00:27:22]: He was wearing Jordan brand. Oh, yeah. That's how powerful and and that's because. Tiff [00:27:28]: I would think Jeter would have his own he was down. Reginald Ferguson [00:27:31]: He was down with MJ, and that's why I have to give him props on his impact in the fashion world. Tiff [00:27:38]: Did it go beyond sneakers? Reginald Ferguson [00:27:40]: I mean, sneakers is the number one thing, obviously. But to your point, he outfits that brand outfits the majority of NCAA teams. Tiff [00:27:49]: Oh, really? Reginald Ferguson [00:27:49]: Yep. So deep now that he's got a kit for PSG, paris Saint Germain, the soccer team. Tiff [00:27:57]: Oh, really? Reginald Ferguson [00:27:58]: Mbappe? Yeah. So it's amazing. Tiff [00:28:02]: And not to know all the namesake athletic wear that's out there for the general public to wear with the know Air Jordan Jump Man on it or Nike or anything like that. That's associated. Reginald Ferguson [00:28:15]: Yeah, absolutely. I mean, matter of fact, you just hinted on something. I know Search remembers these. I cannot tell you the Jordan model numbers, so please don't do this. People don't do this to me. Tiff [00:28:24]: Model number? Reginald Ferguson [00:28:25]: But the spats. Oh, the spats. Tiff [00:28:28]: He had spats. Reginald Ferguson [00:28:29]: Yeah, he knows. The Spat models I'm talking about, they. Tiff [00:28:32]: Were attached to the it's just it's. Reginald Ferguson [00:28:34]: Just the way the patent leather rocked on the edge of the sneaker. People were easily rocking that with suits, jeans, sport jackets. Tiff [00:28:44]: Wow. Reginald Ferguson [00:28:45]: It was that class up a look. Tiff [00:28:47]: Okay, I was going to ask you, did he have any kind of expansion into jackets or suits for men or the dressy up stuff? Reginald Ferguson [00:28:58]: No, but I always laugh when I see that cheap ass Michael Jordan perfume. The cologne. Tiff [00:29:06]: He made a cologne? Does it smell like basketball? Reginald Ferguson [00:29:10]: I don't know. And I really shouldn't talk because I'm a Yankee fan. Tiff [00:29:13]: Jim Bam. Reginald Ferguson [00:29:14]: And they have a cologne, too. Tiff [00:29:16]: The Yankees have a cologne? Reginald Ferguson [00:29:17]: Yes, they do. Tiff [00:29:17]: Good Lord. Reginald Ferguson [00:29:18]: But the bottom line is he's worldwide. It is now a generational brand. Tiff [00:29:23]: Right. Okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:29:25]: He's still cleared for takeoff. Props to MJ. Tiff [00:29:29]: All right, Michael Jordan, our fashion hero. Good one. Good one, Reg. Reginald Ferguson [00:29:34]: Thank you, too. Tiff [00:29:35]: Thanks for clarifying that for me. Reginald Ferguson [00:29:36]: Yeah. Spread the word to your NC peeps. Tiff [00:29:39]: Okay, I will. So let's move on to the next segment that I think is your favorite segment, actually. You get so excited. Reginald Ferguson [00:29:50]: I must have it. Tiff [00:29:52]: Yes. Reginald Ferguson [00:29:57]: I must have it. Have it. Tiff [00:30:02]: That's the next section, Reg. So in this section, we talk about an item that the everyday man must and should have, based on your opinion. Reginald Ferguson [00:30:13]: Yes. Tiff [00:30:14]: Well, everything's based on consultation. So what is our I must have it. Fashion item of the day? Reginald Ferguson [00:30:25]: A troubadour bag. Tiff [00:30:27]: The troubadour bag. Reginald Ferguson [00:30:29]: Oh, my God. Tiff [00:30:30]: Wow. Reginald Ferguson [00:30:31]: Yes. Tiff [00:30:31]: Wow. What is it? Reginald Ferguson [00:30:35]: It's beautiful. Tiff [00:30:39]: Well, I cheated a little bit when you told me about this because I went online and I explored a little bit. Oh, my God. Reginald Ferguson [00:30:47]: Yes. See, you feel what I feel? Tiff [00:30:52]: Such a nice bag. But we're not just talking bags. Yeah, we're not talking about just one bag. We're talking about several different kind of bags. Reginald Ferguson [00:30:59]: Right, but I've only narrowed it down to two. Tiff [00:31:01]: That's what I want. Which one are we going to? Must have it explored today. Reginald Ferguson [00:31:07]: The number one choice is the weekender. Oh, Lord. Tiff [00:31:12]: Of course. That's the swankiest one. Should have known. Reginald Ferguson [00:31:16]: Well, that duffel is hot, too. Those are my two. Tiff [00:31:19]: There's also, besides the duffel, there's the Troubadour, the backpack thing that they do. That's a nice one. And the tote. Reginald Ferguson [00:31:28]: And they have a. Rucksack. Tiff [00:31:29]: Yeah, those are the most popular items that I found. I went to their website, actually, because I was like, why is this such a must have it item? I mean, there's men's bags. It's beautiful men's bags everywhere. And yes, that's one of the things. They're so simply elegant. Yes, there's no logos. There's no outside pockets or any the Weekender has an outside pocket, but it doesn't look cluttered. Reginald Ferguson [00:31:58]: No, it's smooth, it's seamless. Tiff [00:32:00]: Yeah. And it's all made from this very interesting leather fabric. It's a waterproof leather fabric that's hot. Reginald Ferguson [00:32:08]: Because they're from the UK. So that makes sense for them. Tiff [00:32:11]: Right? Reginald Ferguson [00:32:12]: Because it rains every darn day. Tiff [00:32:14]: My God. Does it? Reginald Ferguson [00:32:14]: In London town. I'm sorry, guys. Tiff [00:32:18]: Excuse me. And what makes this leather so special and waterproof so normal? Waterproofing of leather, like leather shoes or boots, is a coating on the outside of the leather. So what these guys invented was a different process. It's a process of waterproofing the leather in the tanning process. So when they actually tan the leather, giving that leather the color, whatever color they're given it in the environmentally safe chemicals that they use, special chemicals, they include this waterproofing product so that it's actually inside the leather. From the front of the grain to the back, front of the skin to the back. It's in there, so it stays waterproof. Isn't that amazing? Reginald Ferguson [00:33:03]: No, it is amazing. I mean, first of all, because you. Tiff [00:33:07]: Would never wear your leather shoes out in the rain or the snow or anything. No, it would stain your leather. Reginald Ferguson [00:33:12]: Right. Tiff [00:33:13]: It would stain your leather. Reginald Ferguson [00:33:14]: Right. Tiff [00:33:15]: And the same with your bags. You leave your leather bag at home when it's raining? Reginald Ferguson [00:33:19]: Absolutely. Yeah. Nylon bags come out. Tiff [00:33:21]: Right. Reginald Ferguson [00:33:21]: It's inclement weather. Tiff [00:33:22]: Well, now you can be classy and all leathered up, no matter what the weather. Reginald Ferguson [00:33:27]: Only if I could afford it. Tiff [00:33:31]: Shall we talk about the price? Reginald Ferguson [00:33:33]: If you want to. Tiff [00:33:34]: Okay. Well, we really have to break it down for the Everyday Man. I mean, you really say this is a must have it item for the Everyday Man, right? Reginald Ferguson [00:33:42]: Let me explain why that's a good first of all, let me even tell you why I know about this brand. I'm a subscriber to the rake. Big shout out to the rake. And as you know, TIFF, I am keeping magazines in business. Tiff [00:33:58]: Yes, you are. Reginald Ferguson [00:33:58]: I have way too many subscriptions to weeklies and monthlies in every issue of The Rake. They have a section of new and noteworthy items. And I'm reading it, and I spot this bag brand. I spot troubadour and I'm like, Whoa. They just looked amazing. Tiff [00:34:14]: Right? Reginald Ferguson [00:34:15]: Like I said, they're sleek, they're smooth. The Weekender bag is a combination of nylon and leather. It does like I said, it has an outside zipper pocket. And here's the thing about bags, guys. You know the reason why I like bags? Because you could put stuff in them. Tiff [00:34:29]: Yeah. Just like pockets. Reginald Ferguson [00:34:30]: Yes. That's why I like pockets, too. Tiff [00:34:32]: Pockets and bags. Reginald Ferguson [00:34:33]: Because you can put stuff in them, carry your stuff. Tiff [00:34:35]: Because guys have stuff. Guys have a lot of stuff inside. Reginald Ferguson [00:34:39]: They have elasticized pockets that can fit a tablet. Tiff [00:34:43]: Nice. Reginald Ferguson [00:34:44]: A zipper pocket for your passport. Those zippers are brass, actually, but they're polished with a matte finish. Tiff [00:34:52]: Nice. Reginald Ferguson [00:34:52]: Oh, yeah. And then that duffel bag, if you saw that the handles, like, cross and wrap around the body of the bag is super duper fly. I don't even talk like this about a bag. Tiff [00:35:05]: I know you're up in your high register there. That's when I know you're excited. I'm looking at the duffel right now, actually. I printed out a couple of bags and their prices and stuff, and that duffel looks very nice. Really does. Let's talk about the price. We're going to start with your favorite, the leather weekender bag. Reginald Ferguson [00:35:30]: That's 525 pounds. Tiff [00:35:32]: That's 525 pounds. You want to think about it again? No. This is the weekender bag. It's 1195 pounds. If you go to the website. Reginald Ferguson [00:35:44]: Oh, what was I looking at? Because there's no discount troubadour anywhere. Tiff [00:35:51]: That's true. So this is a London brand started by two bankers yeah. Reginald Ferguson [00:35:56]: Two finance guys who were just trying to figure out better bags because they traveled better. Tiff [00:36:01]: Bags that look nice. Reginald Ferguson [00:36:03]: Right. Tiff [00:36:03]: That weren't covered in logos, and they needed something waterproof because they were in London. Reginald Ferguson [00:36:08]: Right. Samuel and Abel. Tiff [00:36:11]: That's right. And then something that would last. So the 1195 pounds is a lot of money for a Weekender bag. But you know what it comes with? Reginald Ferguson [00:36:22]: What? Tiff [00:36:22]: It comes with a lifetime guarantee. Reginald Ferguson [00:36:25]: Oh. Tiff [00:36:26]: Meaning whenever? Meaning that it's a five year guarantee for any kind of workmanship problem or anything like that. Reginald Ferguson [00:36:36]: Nice. Tiff [00:36:37]: But for the life of the bag, you can always send it back to get repaired for free. Reginald Ferguson [00:36:43]: Wow. Tiff [00:36:43]: And if you get the bag and you don't like it, they refund your money. Reginald Ferguson [00:36:48]: What? Tiff [00:36:49]: Yes. They want to make sure that you are happy with this bag, and they are so confident that this bag will last you forever and that it's worth the investment that they've given you. A five year repair refurbish guarantee, that's. Reginald Ferguson [00:37:05]: An investment in the client, because you. Tiff [00:37:08]: Divide 1195 pounds by five years. If you think about it that way, it is an investment for a bag that you're going to use for five years. It's so affordable. So affordable. Reginald Ferguson [00:37:19]: Sounds like you're a salesperson for Trickador. Tiff [00:37:21]: And it's never going to go out of fashion. I could be. Reginald Ferguson [00:37:25]: Call me Samuel and Abel. Tiff [00:37:29]: I'm your girl. Reginald Ferguson [00:37:30]: Brand sponsorship. Tiff [00:37:32]: Yeah. It's a beautiful bag. And the leather tote, it's hot. The leather tote comes at a very nice, affordable 645 pounds, which translates to $843 zoinks. And the leather weekender bag also is $1,595. But like I said, you divide that up in the five year guarantee, you've spent very little money for a high quality item that's going to be with you, probably into your grave. Right. Reginald Ferguson [00:38:00]: I like how you think. Tiff [00:38:01]: Yes. Take it with you. Because you can. Reginald Ferguson [00:38:04]: I was going to say all this time I thought you couldn't, but maybe there's an exception here. Maybe they have a connection. Tiff [00:38:11]: So I have a cute little thing called ten Things to know about the Troubadour Bag. You want me to share it? Sure, yeah. Good. Number one, they look the part wherever you go. Reginald Ferguson [00:38:21]: No doubt. Tiff [00:38:22]: Right. Number two, they're easy on the shoulders. I think that's important because they use the lightweight fabrics, even the leather, the waterproof leather is not that heavy. Clunky leather of the old timey bag. Yeah, I have some bags, like the old doctor bags. That's a heavy bag. Reginald Ferguson [00:38:40]: I have a real heavy Fossil messenger bag. Shout out to fossil. But I can't rock that bag because it's so heavy. Tiff [00:38:46]: Just so heavy. Reginald Ferguson [00:38:47]: Yeah. Tiff [00:38:48]: Number three, they aren't afraid to get wet because of the dry. It's called the dry line leathers. So that's the that's really important. Yes. They have pockets, aplenty. Reginald Ferguson [00:39:02]: I know. Tiff [00:39:03]: Right. And they feel as good as they look. Right. Smooth, smooth, smooth. They stand the test of time we just talked about. They'll last forever, the five year guarantee. They have a conscience. This is very important to me. So they don't use paints, finishes or nasty chemicals that harm the environment. Wow. And they say this on the website. All of their fabrics are blue sign approved, which we all know when buying fashion. The blue sign indicates that it was ethically sourced, ethically processed. And their leathers are vegetable tan using hides that are a natural byproduct of farming. So they're using the whole cow. Reginald Ferguson [00:39:46]: Right. Tiff [00:39:46]: Which means they're feeding people and they're dressing people and they're giving people something to totally standing. Yeah. Very nice. And number eight, they don't require a commitment. What did I say? If you don't like it, send it back. Reginald Ferguson [00:40:00]: I can't imagine anyone sending it back. Tiff [00:40:02]: Yeah, right. And they come with free delivery. Oh, I forgot to mention that. Free delivery, which most brands are doing these days. I mean, I've come to expect free delivery whenever I spend a certain amount of money. I mean, yeah, send it to me for free. Reginald Ferguson [00:40:17]: Sure. Tiff [00:40:17]: Put it in the price I'm paying for the bag. Don't nickel and dime me. Reginald Ferguson [00:40:21]: Right, right. Tiff [00:40:21]: And the last thing, they're worth every. Reginald Ferguson [00:40:23]: Penny you need to get you one. I must have it. I don't know if I can get me one. Tiff [00:40:30]: You will reg. I'll work on it for you. I'll break it down for you. Reginald Ferguson [00:40:34]: I appreciate it. Tiff [00:40:35]: All right, so here we are. Reginald Ferguson [00:40:38]: Fashion word of the day. Fashion word of the day. Tiff [00:40:51]: Nah. So this segment, this is a fun little game show segment. This is where we both each bring a word for each other, try to stump each other. A fashion term, hopefully something that you haven't heard of something I could teach you. Something you could teach me? Reginald Ferguson [00:41:08]: Sure. Tiff [00:41:08]: That makes it fun. Reginald Ferguson [00:41:09]: Yeah. Tiff [00:41:10]: So why don't you go first? So you're going to tell me what the word is, and I got to spell it, define it, and use it in a sentence. Reginald Ferguson [00:41:16]: That sounds fine. The word of the day. Fashion word of the day for me is trilby. Tiff [00:41:23]: Trilby. I know what that is. Reginald Ferguson [00:41:25]: What is it? Tiff [00:41:27]: And the reason why I know what a trilby is is because I was actually researching my own fashion word of the day, and I almost picked that again. You know, we're in tune right here. Trilby. It's a hat. Yes, it's a hat. It's got a deep center dent that comes to a point. And the brim is, I think, narrower than a fedora. Reginald Ferguson [00:41:52]: No, a trilby is not a fedora. Tiff [00:41:55]: Well, easy, but in comparison, the brim is narrower than fedora. Yes, that's to compare it. Reginald Ferguson [00:42:01]: Yeah. I'm sorry, I didn't hear you right. I leaped. Tiff [00:42:04]: Yeah. So that's what trilby. Trilby. T-R-I-L-B-Y. Reginald Ferguson [00:42:08]: Using the sentence, too. Tiff [00:42:11]: When I'm stepping out for my evening festivities, I never forget my trilby. You got props from the producer trying to be classy and elegant. I'm going to have my trilby on. I'm going to be toting my troubadour bag, sporting my Air Jordans. Reginald Ferguson [00:42:32]: Oh, my God. Tiff [00:42:33]: I'd be a sight to see. Reginald Ferguson [00:42:34]: No, you can pull it off. Yes, sure. Tiff [00:42:36]: I'm fashion wise like that. All right. You ready for yours? Reginald Ferguson [00:42:39]: Yes. Tiff [00:42:40]: All right. Because I got several over here. Reginald Ferguson [00:42:47]: I never understand this. It's fashion word of the day, not words. Tiff [00:42:49]: Well, I like to be over prepared, so I like to feel where the conversation goes and what I should do. I'm going to use a very simple word. Vent. Reginald Ferguson [00:43:04]: Vent. Tiff [00:43:06]: Vent. Reginald Ferguson [00:43:07]: V-E-N-T. That is correct. Tiff [00:43:10]: That is a good spelling. Reginald Ferguson [00:43:12]: Thank you. Well, what is event? Oh, man. I know, but I can't encapsulate it as a definition. Tiff [00:43:21]: Yeah, you can. Where would you see event? Reginald Ferguson [00:43:27]: Well, where you would or would not, depending on the style, would be a jacket. Tiff [00:43:31]: Correct. Reginald Ferguson [00:43:32]: A men's jacket. Tiff [00:43:33]: Where would it be? Reginald Ferguson [00:43:33]: On a blazer or a suit jacket. Tiff [00:43:35]: Where would it be? Reginald Ferguson [00:43:35]: Well, it could be various places. It could be in the center, meaning a center vent. Or you can double it on the left and the right and be a double vent. I did. All right. Tiff [00:43:46]: Good job, Reg. Good. Yes. A vent is a cut slit in the bottom tail of a coat, allowing the material to move more easily when being worn. It provides ease. A center vent is one common option. Ventless, which is an associate of Italian tailoring I like that side. Or double vented or others. Reginald Ferguson [00:44:08]: I have ventless. I have everything. Tiff [00:44:10]: So I got a question for you about the ventless. Reginald Ferguson [00:44:13]: Sure. Tiff [00:44:14]: So the vent was created to give ease in wearing the coat, I guess sitting down or something. Like that. Reginald Ferguson [00:44:20]: Sure. Tiff [00:44:20]: Why would you have a ventless jacket? Because you're not going to sit ever. Reginald Ferguson [00:44:25]: Because it's such a smooth look and cut. And, yes, that generally means you're not really sitting. If you are going to sit, I would advise my clientele, open up the buttons. Tiff [00:44:38]: Okay. Reginald Ferguson [00:44:38]: His dinner coat, flap it out in the back. No, I mean, listen, dinner coats are. Tiff [00:44:42]: Traditionally have no vent. Reginald Ferguson [00:44:43]: Oh, no, I'm not disputing that. My point is, I have sport jackets. I know I have at least one or two Hugo Boss jackets back in the day. I still rock them. Tiff [00:44:52]: Hugo Boss big brand back in the day. Reginald Ferguson [00:44:54]: Ventless. Yeah, they don't fit me. The new stuff doesn't fit me right anymore. But back in the day, Hugo was my boss. Tiff [00:45:01]: All right. I like how you did that. Reginald Ferguson [00:45:03]: Thank you. Tiff [00:45:04]: Very nice. All right, so that is our fashion word of the wait, wait. You got to use it in a sentence. Reginald Ferguson [00:45:10]: Oh, vent. When I think of Brooks Brothers, I think of the center vent for their jackets. Tiff [00:45:16]: Boom. Just like that. I try dropping another brand, brooks brothers. Reginald Ferguson [00:45:21]: Yep. Tiff [00:45:21]: We'll talk about that brand one, right? Reginald Ferguson [00:45:24]: Sure, sure. Tiff [00:45:25]: All right. Reginald Ferguson [00:45:25]: Well, that's a wrap. Tiff [00:45:26]: I think. Reginald Ferguson [00:45:26]: So, for listening. Tiff [00:45:27]: Thank you so much. Reginald Ferguson [00:45:29]: We hope you had fun. Down for another one.
