Finding another menswear-lovin’ lady is no small feat, especially one who can geek out with me over the Internet-based explosion of men’s fashion, the importance of a good men’s espadrille, and the many faces of the monk strap within ten minutes of meeting. And not just geek out; I’m talking full-blown, dissected discussion.
“I’m into men’s fashion, but not fashion with a capital F,” Marisa Zupan says while scrunching her nose and sipping her white wine. Think: Lotuff Leather, Isaia, Ovadia & Sons, L.B.M. 1911, Sid Mashburn (and sister Ann Mashburn for the ladies). And her style on this particular day reiterates this moral: a pastel green romper with neutral wedges and black glasses framed by dark blunt bangs. Subtle, subdued, making a statement. That’s what The Sig Other is all about.
