As news of Benjamin Bixby continues to trickle out, Mr. 3000 is finally beginning to do interviews about the clothing line. American Esquire’s interview is far from in-depth (with a grand total of two questions) but it’s better than nothing. Check out the interview after the jump.
What kind of lunatic launches a luxury brand in a recession?
It’s not like we planned it this way, but it actually kind of helps. The person that I’m making clothes for doesn’t want to wear the same thing as everyone else, and so our biggest advantage is that we can be exclusive. If a man’s wearing Benjamin Bixby, you know he’s in the know.
Any thoughts on buying clothes in tough times?
Buy things that you love. Buy things that are never going to go out of style, and that you can wash for ten years and still have it be your favorite. And remember that the way you present yourself counts a lot.
