Fashion Backward

January 8th, 2007

I'm kind of on the run this evening, so I'll only jot down a quick item to mention that tonight's show (at 7:30; repeated on Friday night at 10:30) is a proud rebroadcast of an episode from a few months ago in which I visited with some local icons of fashion. They were very nice to me, but somehow I sensed that my red socks were not being regarded as "fashion forward." Still, it was lots of fun. ...

By the way, during the show I asked the incredibly well-dressed Joseph Pineda to explain the old-fashioned term "shooting your cuffs." He was unable to oblige me, but after the program aired I received many helpful messages telling me it involved pulling out your shirt cuffs so they showed just the right amount beyond your jacket sleeves (this, of course, assumes that you'd be wearing a jacket in the first place -- in which case, I'm guessing you wouldn't be wearing bright-red socks). So once again, thanks to my viewers for continuing my education as a grown-up!

And thanks to my other guests, talented local designers Umay Mohammed and Marie Biscarra of Nisa, for making me feel kind of glamorous -- perhaps a bit like the great model Iman might feel if she were a middle-aged bald Jewish guy who knew nothing about fashion. ...
