The guest in this episode is Bryan Shettig. Bryan owns the brand Rite-Stuff, specialising in the reproduction of early 1900's workwear. I wanted to talk to him about having garments made in Japan, whether the quality is as legends say and also about the challenges involved in finding a factory. We get into quite a lot of other stuff as well, so it made for an interesting hour-long chat.
Garmology is a podcast about menswear, old and new, from a perspective of buying, wearing, collecting, evaluating and appreciating. With regular co-hosts and interesting guests, the aim is to provide a non-fashion view of what men might wear if they knew more about it. Expect plenty of opinions, but pretty much no mention of tailoring or pocket squares. The pod is an offshoot of the WellDressedDad blog, established in early 2013. The reasoning behind adding the pod to the lineup is to allow a different venue for the all-important garment info to become available to garmsmen worldwide.
