Ant Hicks owns Assembly, a small menswear shop in the idyllic market town of Frome in Somerset. We talk about the reality of being small and local when faced with the online retail mastodonts, the value of where things are made and the importance of sustainability.
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.
