Kempt Man of the Hour: Billy Reid
Billy Reid is on a tear. And when you look this good in your own designs, it’s no wonder.
Last night Mr. Reid took home the CFDA Award for Menswear Designer of the Year. And today he’s taking home MOTH honors—consider it a victory lap—with that pitch-perfect ivory double-breasted jacket and bow tie in check. When everyone else was treading in tuxedos or vaguely metallic suits, he stuck to his Southern gentleman roots. It’s what’s brought him success time and time again. And we don’t see it failing him anytime in the near future. Bravo, Billy.
An honorable mention goes to Prabal Gurung, who cleaned up nice and made an impeccable choice in arm candy: Zoe Saldana.
