    Dress Code  

    Photographed in Brooklyn, NY

    Noteworthy: bangs, striped nailhead canvas shorts, simple summer uniform. Alex is one of my summer interns and has this quirky but classic personal style.

    Love it!  I’m usually not a fan of shorts in the city, but this look is classy, tasteful and totally appropriate for the sweltering heat we’ve been having.

    Yes, these shorts are perfect.  And the outfit is just right.  Nice shot.  Good luck to the intern.

    @James—The job description for director of concept design, while extensive, didn’t disclose everything that job entails or the aspirations my boss had for the position.

    @Fred—Thanks - that sounds like what it takes to land most jobs. Why doesn’t your Rugby JD mention anything about designing menswear? Appears it was more of a research/staging/store concept role, no?

    @James—I speak only for myself: it takes ambition, drive, relationships, someone seeing something in you, timing, and a little luck.

    How does one land a job at RL designing menswear with no previous menswear design experience to speak of?

    @cam—I was designing menswear while at Ralph Lauren. Now, I’m doing my own thing. I’ll let the products speak for themselves.

    Those are great shorts.  You don’t suppose Alex would share with us where she got them?  Thanks!

    What do your 5 interns do, exactly? What do you do, exactly?
