Kempt Man of the Hour: Malcolm McLaren
*Photographed by our fearless lensman, Patrick McMullan.*
Sex Pistols svengali Malcolm McLaren is one of Thom Browne's biggest fans. Perhaps the subversive nature of Brown's sartorial spin appeals to the old saboteur. McLaren's been a firm believer in *épater la bourgeoisie* since the SEX days.
At the fete for our old school chum Tom Sachs' giant Hello Kitty sculptures at Lever House the other night, McLaren made the scene in head-to-toe Thom. However, he is also at root a very well-dressed fellow, and though his trousers aren't fully visible here, judging by the fit this suit wasn't cut to Browne's usual shrunken proportions. And of course he had his good old Wayfarers firmly in place.
