Welcome to the first episode of The Menswear House Podcast, featuring Jeff Hilliard, Kyle Christensen and Jake Gallagher.
It’s been quite some time since anyone has really pushed the boundaries in menswear commentary, so the three of us decided to get together and try out a new, more free flowing platform to stretch beyond the reblog culture that seems to dominate right now.
In this first episode, Jake discusses why the Wax-Wane Tumblr didn’t make the cut, Kyle drops some industry knowledge darts about the luxury market bubble, and Jeff defends his rights as a Midwestern outsider.
We hope you enjoy the show and be sure to follow The Menswear House on Tumblr and Twitter. Don’t hesitate to shoot us an email with hatemail, questions about how cool we are, and comments on Jake’s new pair of Nike wovens.
- (‘A series where we talk some more about what we decide to reblog’)
Ironically enough this week’s rapid reblog is the first episode of The Menswear House. A podcast wherein shots are fired at Tumblr and the ‘reblog’ culture is lambasted for mostly sound reasons.
Still despite the fact that I’m feeding the disease Wax - Wane clearly has distaste for, this podcast is absolutely too ripe not to share. Herein the ‘Menswear House’ trifecta (consisting of messrs Jake Gallagher, Jeff Hilliard and Kyle Christensen) converse on the nature of luxury goods, the death of traditional menswear journalism and a whole range of other topics often relegated to the back room of #menswear in exchange for another picture of the waist of somebody’s Carmina x all of New York fucking city dubmonks.
Its definitely worth having a listen to this podcast if you have any interest (vested or novel) in internet menswear and within Jake actually discusses - at some length - why he jumped out the Tumblr game (bless his cojones, I remember using Wordpress that one time in my 2nd year communications class and it was death).
Podcasting elsewhere is already old hat but it has just struck me that ‘The Menswear House’ could be the next positive leap forward for shared menswear content. Since long form - allegedly - is no longer being read and #menswear is becoming a jpeg circle jerk, funny dynamic recorded musings might be a saving grace we didn’t know we needed.
