Thom (Thumb) Browne
Well it looks like there's a tremor under the ivory tower known as the House of Thom Browne. Persistent rumors of an empty bank account, buyers less and less interested in the collection and investors not lining up . Well, welcome to the real world. People , even sissy men who like trench coats lined in layers of tutu tulle draw the line sooner or later. Personally, I was starting to worry there was no limit to the ridiculousness of these clothes.
He vehemently denies any trouble on the horizon . This is the stock response when you are a super star no longer in touch with reality. You deny the fact that your aesthetic and business model are completely out of synch with reality. I don't wish ill on even the most deluded but why not wake up and start smelling the stench which are businesses strewn down 7th Avenue. I would rather be in than out.
