As I’ve written before, your wardrobe should speak to who you are; your personality, your individuality, your lifestyle, etc.
Michael Macko gets it. He’s a seasoned menswear executive with over 20 years experience in the fashion, retail and media industries. Currently he is the editor-at-large for Valet Magazine and a sought-after menswear stylist and consultant. Previously he held posts as the fashion director of Details Magazine as well as the vice president of fashion, PR & special events for Men’s & Home at Saks Fifth Avenue. Needless to say, he understands this business and has developed a personal style that is all his own.
We caught up with Michael on Manhattan’s beautiful Highline to check out how he’s injecting some personal flare into his wardrobe as he transitions to Fall.
5. Shades of Grey (& Storage Solutions)
Ever wonder where fashionable New Yorkers keep all the clothing/shoes/accessories they collect over the years…
“This picture was taken in my storage unit which serves as a staging center for me. Everything goes there first, before going to the tailor, being stored off-season, the dry cleaner and ultimately in my closet.”
“The LL Bean boots are an all black version launched this fall to help celebrate their 100th Anniversary next year. I’ve been wearing LL Bean since I was a kid…so it’s awesome that now I get to work with them on projects.”
Thanks, as always, for reading – and special thanks to Michael for participating.
Yours in style,
