On this week’s show, I’m joined by Joshua Brueckner, founder of an innovative new service called SKINNYFATTIES. Rather than relegate necktie styles to the dictates of trends and designers, Joshua and his team put the power of customization into their clients’ hands, tailoring their ties to individual preferences and needs. On today’s show, you’ll hear Joshua talk about the genesis of his idea to tailor ties, the growth of that idea into SKINNYFATTIES, the services they offer clients, some of the criteria they take into consideration when tailoring a customer’s tie, some of his favorite tie labels and designers, some new tie trends on the horizon, and more. Plus, a playlist full of the latest releases - brand new music from Sean Rowe, Ty Segall, Roadkill Ghost Choir, and others. So join us for a lesson in the power of the tie, right here on BreakThru Radio!

Dr. Halaas comments on what she believes is fueling the trend and the process behind a beard transplant, as well as how the popularity of selfies has led more people to cosmetic surgery.

If you’ve been browsing fashion news on the internet lately, chances are you’ve heard of normcore. This week’s guest is Jeremy Lewis, former trend forecaster and founder/editor of the scholarly new fashion publication Garmento, who contributed his thoughts on the new movement to The Cut’s widely publicized article. On today’s show Jeremy expounds on this sociological trend, sharing his thoughts on anonymity’s place in fashion, normcore’s appeal within our contemporary context, what it means to pursue fashion vs. style, and more. Plus, a great mix of under-the-radar artists in today’s playlist, including garage/psych/punk ensembles Sleepy Sun and Ex Hex, along with upcoming folk group Twin Forks and UK artist Bipolar Sunshine. So grab your most nondescript pair of grey sweatpants, and join us for a look into fashion’s new blank face…

In keeping with BTR’s theme week, I’m delighted to bring you an interview today on Sew & Tell with professional runner Lauren Fleshman, a true talent that bridges both the worlds of fitness and fashion. In addition to being a US Champion and pro athlete, Lauren is many other things: a Stanford graduate with both a BA in Human Biology and Master’s in Education; co-founder of Picky Bars, a new line of energy bars for athletes; a recent addition to the Seattle-based Oiselle running apparel line for women, which Lauren joined after ending a ten-year relationship with Nike; the voice of a popular personal website that answers fans’ questions and offers intimate insight into her running process & lifestyle; and last but not least, a new mom. Join us today as Lauren shares about how she got started running at age 13, the unique relationship she’s forged with indie apparel line Oiselle, a few of her favorite Oiselle pieces for winter training, the brave blog post she wrote about her recent runway appearance, the development of Picky Bars, and more. And as always, I’ve got a great playlist for you with music from Cali artists Mikal Cronin and Kevin Morby, as well as songs off the new releases from Damien Jurado and ASPE.
