Billy Reid

Billy Reid, a southern gentleman-designer with southern Dandi designs is coming to Austin on 6th street (near Z-Tejas) and I have to say that I am beside myself with excitement.

Billy Reid is all about lifestyle and a modern approach to American work wear and cultured Dandyism (according to his site).

It does remind me of a modern take on the sophistcated southern Dandi with double breasted jackets and bowties.  The modern twist are the fabric of the pants and the length of the sleeves and cut of the jacket.

When I look at his collections I feel like I should definitely have a mint julep in hand.

Billy Reid won Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Best New Designer in America Award in 2010 and this year he came away with their Best Menswear Designer of the Year Award.  Impressive, impressive indeed.
