MYSWEAR X NICK SULLIVAN
THE WORLD’S FIRST TRULY CUSTOMISABLE SNEAKER
One of the most influential menswear editors in America, Esquire’s Fashion Director Nick Sullivan used to be a lecturer on the MA Fashion course at London Central Saint Martins.
Nick is an avid collector of all things edwardian and tweed like, and can obsess quite a bit on the perfect suit and wether or not one should or shouldn’t wear tie clips.. Thanks to MYSWEAR you can shop Nick’s edit and be as cool as him. At least on your feet.
I like sneakers the simplest they can be. And I like them to be luxurious too. The MYSwear customisation process allows them to be as pared-down as possible. Perhaps that’s not the intention of it but I love it like that.
What would your super power would be?
Omnipresence. Theres not enough time to do all the things I need/want/have to do.
What’s the worst job you’ve done?
I worked in a pub – a Berni Inn – that was part of a depressing chain when I was a student. One night they brought a box of brown velvet bow ties on elastic and said we all had to wear them. I resigned on the spot. When you know you know. But even that job was good experience while it lasted. All experience is good experience.
What’s your favourite smell?
Many things…Proper fresh gruyère, woodsmoke on clothes, the sea at low tide.
How do you relax?
Reading. Which invariably turns after a few pages into a nap. It’s a win win.
What or who is the love of your life?
My family. Work, everything else mentally, comes second, even when it can’t.
What is the phrase do you overuse?
Actually and Honestly. Bad habits
Tell us a joke
“Q: What is the difference between a duck?
A: One of its legs is both the same”. I’m not good at jokes….
