Has anybody read Tim's book yet? I couldn't tell if it was supposed to be geared toward dressing tips for women or men.
Every American man ought to take a page out of Tim Gunn's sartorial book--he always looks natty and pulled together, even in jeans, which I'm sure he has pressed.
He really has an impressive vocabulary, which contradicts the prevailing notion of fashion-people as dimwits. I confess that he does get a teeny-tiny bit grating on my nerves with the "Designer Gather-Rounds", though in other cases, I find him quite calming and sane.
My all-time fave Tim moment had to be the "I don't think I want any turtle poop", followed closely by the Electic White Feet display on Uli's beach in Miami.
I understand that his role is different than that of a judge, and I much prefer him in the role of mentor, but I would dearly love to see what Tim's comments would be if he were in the judge's seat. Nobody would be sad to see Michael Kors go, would they?
Maybe they ought to consider letting Tim sit in on the panel for the final runway shows at least. I feel he is the best positioned to understand everybody's work because he gets to see it up-close and in-process. He also has the best sense of the individual personalities, which I think should play a part somewhat in the final decision. Since the winner is representing the show and by extension the professional judgement of the people involved, it behooves them to get insight into their styles of working and whether a designer would actually be a good fit for an internship & corporate representation deal. I'm not sure they haven't bombed in that respect with at least two of their current three winners. Tim's input would be inestimable.
