Thom Browne has made a name for himself by taking traditional menswear and making it conservative yet rebellious. Browne has won the CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year award twice and one of his designs was worn by Michelle Obama to President Obama’s second inauguration. The designer cites some of his influences as John F. Kennedy and Cary Grant. In an interview by Vanity Fair’s John Heilpern, he talks about the importance of imperfection and says that the wisdom lies in the process. ‘I never liked things to be too perfect. I like them to be perfectly made,’ says Browne. Check out the full interview on Vanity Fair.
