business of put them on the map well I think that's really really powerful is something to think about welcome back and I think about my former company was changing America's changing into in that last the test of time until I had to come up with something different and I like so many other fashion brands went through seasons in the word fashion is about change we're talking about change because change could be change can be meaningful and and we're always changing but I think about the retail business dying dying from lack of change which sold retail bankruptcies this week the good news about bankruptcy chapter eleven is companies get a chance to come back end of those that don't I have met their time you know one of my favorites although Jess great company right chapter eleven yes I'll do it hello we were big fans of al though they have a great assortment of shoes I was surprised that they run into financial difficulties every time I walked in the store it's always packed and always looks like a busy company turns out that L. does not sell enough sneakers they don't have branded sneakers they don't access the Nike or adidas or whatever and that's causing them problems so I thought that was interesting what I did find was also interesting was trying for a baby dolls went bankrupt this week chapter eleven and that's not too long after they were just four by one of these financial lenders no surprise no John produces a little on the high side of chronic pain no really they compare to rag and bone and J. brand or Adriana Goldschmidt of there there but it's very very selective very rock and roll is very contemporary and modern and maybe there's just not enough customers well it's not clear to me whether there's money in this industry is helping what I do know this if you change nothing nothing will change in tonight what we're talking about this was a changing America changing into I would tell you the future retail's really littered with the blood of so many people there's too many stores that have been too many stores I talked about this before of course you build the wall today in a great neighborhood three years twenty years from now the neighborhood is still in the same neighborhood someone for store closer someone built a wall ten miles away in a better neighborhood it's new and it's approved and it's great and that affects people but you know the last thing I want to say about retail the one I sent earlier today in the show everybody seems to think they know but everybody just has an opinion nobody knows where this world is going there's a lot of change afoot and nobody really knows people could have their comments you what I know as much as about that are you to view the full name Michael Gould Michael Gould was the former chairman and CEO of Bloomingdale's and I asked them what is the future of retail and he looked at me and he says farm unions have been going to mark as far back as the ancient Greeks it's written they went to market they want to shop they want to be entertained they went for the experience that shop they have a Cup of coffee three would be entertained in their shopping and that is the future of retail and malls around the country and department stores will have to be more entertaining provide more on experiences is the key word experiences for their people which leads me to the six billion dollar wall that was recently bill called the American dream mall the middle class they built it for entertainment purposes they built it with swimming pools ice skating rinks they actually have a ski slope they have an indoor roller coaster it's one of the most amazing morals and then what the plague and if I'm not mistaken it is or is going bankrupt so so much for experiences so much for change the one thing we know is the world is changing well in this world are going to need new skills they're going to have to adapt to change what is changing America changing into nobody knows take a break be back in a minute in fact this is mark Webber we're living in strange times no question about it we're regrouping were you thinking about what our lives look like we're working from home and that is a new phenomenon what is changed is that we are video conferencing we're being seen when we're working from home in the past we did our jobs when we worked at home we called an

O. crap up yeah they departed from the party ideology that's a very dangerous thing to do so so all part of this is YouTube managing at scale they've they've gone through a lot of phony jurors in the demonetised the vast majority of any video that has to do with corona virus and as a default because they these tech companies they don't want to be the ones to decide they often try to figure out well if the government says that will do this but YouTube decided that they will use the WHO's guidelines as the thing that they will just kind of benchmark stuff against never goes against that then we'll take it down and that that is flawed in him in many ways I'm trying to force on textile workers yeah well it reminds me of of Twitter the other day who will fact check the idea that the Chinese bat death came from that lab in Wuhan if found it faults and so blocked those tweets in the rest of it and it turns out their fact checkers were on the take it's it's a great example you just laid out of why it gets so difficult so fast when you start censoring anything yeah it's exactly like those guidelines we played from was a youtuber Twitter whoever I know that was Facebook about his book breast feeding nipples Ryan and I had to start with you can have nipples and breast feeding advocates complain then you had people breast feeding ten year olds and is that some sort of weird porn or is that Britain health and science and it just got really complicated really fast so they decide okay we're gonna go with official government guidelines if it's not then we won't allow it because people are saying all kinds of weird stuff on YouTube well okay well turns out the W. H. O. or a bunch of liars and getting paid off by the Chinese so going by the guidelines might not be the best idea I like to have some of the social media tried to crowd source it for a while where if you get a certain number of complaints or reports on a tweet it gets taken down and it took you know the twitterverse about five seconds to realize oh wait a minute I can just report this opinion I disagree with as being somehow scandalous or if they can they'll take it down so I will censor them that way and people abuse the hell out of it immediately it's that classic Cuba is the cure worse than the disease which I don't know that's the best metaphor when you're dealing with the disease actual disease comma but it obviously the idea of a couple of doctors presenting Vera point of view in reality is a good part of the conversation in an open society beyond that nobody could argue with that how scary is it that we even have to point that out and repeat what I would think people would know already and that's if you if you post that video people watch it and then somebody persuasive in smart comes along and says yeah their their reasoning has this flaw and this flaw in the reality is this everybody is so much the smarter than if you just had the our sensors take it down for us I mean come on but so what they're trying to avoid is if you have somebody some Dr oz type on there saying Iraq where running shoe Polish on your forehead it makes you you know resistant to covert and they think well that's gonna hurt people that's that's obviously not true so governor Northam Virginia's gonna claim yeah when I was black face yeah and blank that was that was trying to get rid of a hearing it was a bad example and now is it's fine if you're doing a Michael Jackson thing but you can you still never forget honey I don't think that's a good idea hello I've says it's not a good idea the bottle actually pulled down the doctors with the five million views I mean that's just us being yeah no they did not comport with the company line their private company they get to do whatever they want they can decide they don't want anybody with blonde hair on their videos if they want this point that's that's part of the difficulty with the where we are currently we're we're Google and YouTube are so huge yeah the I guess the idea is that over time a a counterbalance to that would rise up that hasn't happened yet to Facebook or YouTube right right well I just want people to know these companies are gigantic they are frequently wrong they have an awful tendency toward kowtowing to the powerful in the evil because that but you know the government of the United States might regulate and tax and that sort of thing but they're not going to do anything truly horrendous to Google or apple or Facebook or any year tech super giants but the evil communist Chinese will and so they bands to the Chinese well I just want people to be aware of that before you have you know accept them as does that those the Google would they do with the pretty colors in our logo and a cartoon general there at Cheyenne evil conglomerate I sear them Google it I was thinking about this last night were in the unfortunate unfortunate worst part of the the the internet coming on the scene I do believe that at this moment the internet is a net negative for society it wasn't in the beginning I don't think it will be in the future right now where we are I think it is a net negative for society in the way that the printing press was a net negative for society shortly after it came on the scene and the very beginning it seemed great then pretty soon all of a sudden people were bringing pamphlets to towns that were full of crap about ranch about witches and what not and people assumed it was true because everything else they'd ever read in their lives is true because there were gatekeepers just like we had gatekeepers for newspapers or whatever we assume things on the internet must have gate keepers turns out it doesn't warn that unfortunate period where we'd we haven't caught on to the lack of gate keepers and some sort of a trusted sites you know develop over time the we look to in week nor the other crap that's what'll happen just like with the burning presidentially some newspapers got some credibility okay I'll look at that read that I'm not going to just take the pamphlet you handed me on the dirt road into town okay go burn away I don't know which right wow so you have optimism this is not like you're you're back on the song I just wonder how long it will take for society to to figure this out and the sun and and some trusted sites or counter views to rise up to challenge what currently exists one of the great questions of our age who knows eventually or never because Google will crush them mark Zuckerberg go by him there's nobody in in in an office at Google that was willing to raise their hand and say we can't take down the videos because they're going counter to the BHL everybody knows the WHO's full of crap there's nobody in in an office a Google it would say that really not not powerful enough not heard either they're afraid to go against the group thank like that poor James what's his name the engineer yeah I said look a lot here in lighten and policies are not fact based on the wrong I think there are a lot fewer people in rooms having meetings discussing these things at tech companies and we would assume so how did this get pulled down this from surely wasn't just purely an algorithm with a video this pop well it's not simply algorithms but a lot of it is user driven users flag videos then they get sent up the food chain and that food chain is also an algorithm and if it gets up to the point where this is counter to what the who is saying and we have already established a who's our guidelines the more I think about it the more maddening it is you've got some doctors that are arguing for we shouldn't have a society locked down this way the virus isn't as bad as people are saying would you agree with them or not good god is there a more important conversation in America maybe in the world right now no and they have some legitimate input on that and they got pulled down by Google well end any time the giants connected and powerful and and the government say it well it just happens to be here an opinion that is resisting the giants connected and powerful in government that is it that must be taken down for the good of the public for their moral health I suggest you all trade very very carefully when you're doing that it's like the point you were making about a California highway patrol so they won't issue any more permits protesting against government policy because it would be too dangerous no no no no no no that is the single last thing you can do in a free society what are your thoughts on this text nine four one five two nine five K.

Top Five Mark Wahlberg Movies: Say Hi to Your Mother for Us | The Big Picture
"Unfortunately this Shithole has more fucking leaks in the Iraqi navy. Fuck Yourself. I'm tired from fucking your wife. How's your mother good? She's tired from fucking my father. You have a job Tom. I'm a firefighter. Oh God bless you a hero. I'm not hero. We'd all be here. We could use the petroleum. No excuse me Christmas. Utah a lot of fucking money. What did you do? I mean if you take away nothing else for my class from this experience let it be this. If you're not a genius don't bother right. The world needs plenty of electricity and a lot of them are happy and they can help. It really can't be that we can always do. Better let me keep trying. If you guys keep trying I'm shawn fantasy and this is the big picture. A conversation show about Mark Wahlberg. This episode may break the all time record for big picture dissonance later in the show. I have an interview with Kelly. Reichardt the writer and director behind independent film classics. Like old joy. Meek's cutoff in the new film. First cow which might be the best movie of Two Thousand Twenty so far. I hope you'll stick around for that but I were joined by the frog. Sheriff Chris Ryan. I heard that Mark. Wahlberg actually dropped out of first cow. He was gonNA play the cow Alao. But you're already doing animal. Humor here on driver too is calling. Chris. You're here because you're a fan of Mark Wahlberg work. He's The star of a new movie. That is hitting Netflix. This Friday called Spencer confidential. I think gets his fifth film with Peterberg. The actor turned director of such films as lone survivor and deepwater horizon. This is a very strange movie but I think it's going to be a a very watched movie because the corona virus is scaring America into staying inside their house. And so I think that there's a potential for a lot of viewership of this movie. So we're talking about Mark Wahlberg one of the most resilient and persistent movie stars. I guess of the past twenty five years so let's just start with WHO is Mark Wahlberg. How did this happen? That Mark Wahlberg became one of the signature figures of movies in the twenty first century. I would not say I'm a fan of Mark Wahlberg as like I'm a I'm agnostic as a citizen. Yeah I would say that. I am very interested in the way that he has conducted his career. Which is kind of a weird throwback to a studio systems our he makes three to four movies every eighteen months somehow and just releases them at like a hugely prolific rate at. I'm fascinated by all the little pockets of his career that he has created where he repeats. You know he goes back to these little micro genres that he and he works a lot of people over and over again by the way he kind of has conducted his career to me is almost unique among Hollywood movie stars anymore. I mean most of the time when people achieve a certain level success. They just like see in three years for my next blockbuster or award fodder and he's just like nope. I'm grinding out. Family movie violent action film and then every once in a while Raunchy comedy and it's just like pretty pretty like unique among all Hollywood stars so I'm fascinated. What do you make them Amanda? I was fascinated when going back to you. Remember how many great directors he's worked with and how many actually excellent movies he's been in. Chris was asking me how much we watching I had to do for this podcast and the answer is a lot. Because I wouldn't say that Mark Wahlberg stays with me besides certain shots that will certainly be discussed on this podcast but he especially I guess in the first decade of this century just goes on a tremendous run. I really from Boogie nights on and works with a does a lot of really great movies and then kind of decides to just become like the Peterberg comedy guy in the second decade of the century. And I it's a really interesting shift. He just Kinda decides no. I'm going to do this now. And it's very fascinating to me I can't really make sense of. I also is Christmas talking about his efficiency. Just pulled up his daily schedule. Do you guys remember the days? Will he wakes up. Like four o'clock in the morning posted this on his own instagram typical daily scheduled to thirty. Am Wake Up. What don't you forty five prayer time. Three fifteen am breakfast. There's a lot of work work. He's golfing from seven thirty to eight. Which is the golf people? And there's a chamber recovery at nine thirty that takes more time than golf workout number two lunches and our so our meeting slash work calls also an hour and he goes to bed at seven thirty PM and which in Los Angeles for. I'd say six at least six months of the year. That is still broad daylight. Yeah Yeah Su. There is real efficiency baked into this. He's clearly very deliberate guy. He's making choices. And I think that pertains to his daily life and also his his career. There is clearly thought going into this. It's not a type of thought. I can access. I still don't know why you would wake up at two thirty and I don't know why you would do like five deep water horizons. There's a rumor that he has a routine. I think you. I'm speculating here. But I think he's a member of Wilshire Country Club here in Los Angeles. My husband told me this last night and he likes to play alone. He likes to play. And that's why he's playing so early in the morning and he's trying to get in like a quick nine or quick eighteen. I don't know five days a week which I'm who among? Us would love to do that if I could wake up before five. Am I would do it. I'll tell you I would love to do that. I'll tell you something else I am. I find golf to be social and I get crippled like when I play by myself. I'm like all the neurosis is creeping like. Should I take another shot now like it really playing golf? If you're not playing with anyone can just tell you. He's got three snacks on the schedule. Including one that takes an hour and a half from eight to nine thirty. Am is snack after seven. Thirty to eight am golf. Probably a euphemism. Oh Okay so you think. His sessions are ninety minutes. So you're saying to jump off something. Amanda said You know who? He reminds me of a bizarre way Cruz. Where it's like that run. Where cruises like I'll just work with Barry Levinson Stanley Kubrick and Steven Spielberg and every great director at it seems like I'm just the most important factor in the whole world and then one day he wakes up and says I'M GONNA make action movies for the rest of my life? It's very unlikely though. I mean his origins restraints obviously member of this very well known family. He's from Massachusetts. He starts out as a a rap artist and ultimately becomes a Calvin Klein M. C. An. Mc Yes we watched the vibrations video. Recently I took my top five twenty two. Would you make of good vibrations? And and how did you feel about the funky bunch all these years later? It's just really bizarre that this was a thing that we lived through. Who is the funky bunch? I I still don't know who's in it. Were you in a Chris? Thought it was the backup dancers. I mean yes. That's who they were but like do you know anything about them and where they are now. I was pretty. Yeah I was pretty. I was pretty authentic back then so I was. I was already listening to deep deep newer. Grab I love talking about the early nineties with you. Can we talk about the Calvin Klein ads for a second really really important? You're almost put these on my list. And it's and my honorable mention boxer briefs. Yeah I was still a boxer sky back then that was not interested in the product. Would you just tear the ads out of the magazine? Crumpled them up and throw them in the garbage. I think that the those are the signature moment in his career without the advertising campaign he would not have become weirdly Tom Like sub Tom Cruise but he you know. He soared to a of fame on that ad campaign. They're just extremely important. Ninety s imagery obviously came as also in them. And that's where the whole K. Moss thing starts Them Hating each other. Great early celebrity feud they're very important that's all and also it looks great. I mean he and his image was of basically like a tough guy with a bad attitude whether that was true or not he obviously got into some altercations and his his personal history is pretty complicated. We're not gonNA spend too much time talking about on this show. But I think that he basically leveraged his complicated persona in the public into a movie career and if you look at the first few movies that he makes replays these kind of like weird intimidating Undeveloped YOUNG MEN. You know in the basketball diaries in. Ryen Russillo favorite movie fear And even in boogie nights. There's something like violently adolescent about his his persona which is very different from the kind of actor and movie star that he is right now so a lot of times. I think that we could. You could write like a series of essays about how much actors of his generation have attempted to mimic the kind of like rough and tumble blue collar upbringing. That Walberg apparently had like how how often like DiCaprio Damon or these guys have tried to be like no I'm Jim Carroll and he's just a function Carol I'm the real thing but it's weird like even in his authenticity. If you WANNA call it that he still lacks like any kind of emotional intelligence or psychological depth to portraying those things and you could write all these essays. But you could just watch the departed. Because that's what this does that. Do you need that from an actor? Do you need to feel like this person is like in control and has that depth that Chris was talking about? I think I do ultimately. I think that there is a reason that I gravitate to Matt Damon instead of Wahlberg. And I think that you not just because of the departed and the Boston. Bill will talk about that a lot as a comparison but I like I said I really remember a lot of Walberg performances. Even though he's been given a lot of great ones and I think that's because they have a I don't WanNa say surface level. That's unfair. They're actually a lot of depth but they aren't the emotional depths and I think I personally don't hang onto those. I think I'm always wondering how in command of the Ark of his career. He is because you pointed out he makes he's. I mean he's just been a lot of great movies a lot of movies that are going to stand the test of time and it always seems like he's being cast the way that a lot of young actresses or cast as the. Nayef as the like the naive and innocent who gets corrupted when put into a system and like did someone in a room. Say That to him. This is your lane man will early like you think so. Well I just don't think that he I think he's largely in charge of the movies that he makes. Now he's like. I think that the movies that we see our movies that Mark Wahlberg once made for the most part and my suspicion is the reason he made that transition. Amanda was referencing about just mostly doing action. Comedy movies now is because those movies are more fun and easier to make for him there either like a physical challenge there like a day on the set whereas making boogie nights as hard Russell Smart. Yeah I think that he is both like sinking very strategically as the schedule would suggest and also like not over thinking it i. That's the VIBE. I guess sometime at the end of the day he's going like it very much is what it is. He is a very Surface level or just immediate actor. That's that's what you're getting and so I think he wants. He gets to produce the movies himself and make the decisions. You just kind of like. Yeah action comedies. Got There before we get into our top fives and I think we should figure out what we mean. When we say top five if it's five performances or his top five movies because there's some complexity. There is a very strange celebrity. The the nine eleven thing is you're staring right at. It's just hanging over my head as I think about him as a public person. So in twenty twelve Walberg was quoted in a magazine interview regarding. What would have happened if he had flown aboard American Airlines Flight? Eleven on September eleventh. Two thousand one. He'd been booked on a flight on flight. Eleven but his plans changed the day before the scheduled flight and he cancelled his reservation. Walberg received public criticism for stating quote. If I was on that plane with my kids it wouldn't have went down like it did and there would have been a lot of blood in that first class cabin and then me saying okay. We're going to land somewhere safely. Don't worry Warburg apologized for those statements. But they're actually the sort of thing that kind of inform his public persona and when we watch him in an action movie. We think that he's the kind of guy who's like I would have kicked some ass on nine eleven which I don't know if you like complicates the quality of the films that he makes but I can't get stuff like that. Outta my head once I've read or heard about it and I feel like we've referred back to it even in a joking fashion over the years right. Yeah it is definitely one of the top three things that I think about. When someone says Mark Wahlberg schedule yeah nine eleven yeah and the last night of prosthetic but like you know. I'm human beings. It's the point of the movie full movie as leading to that so yes I agree. It's funny he is both. I think very funny as a comedic actor like entirely humorless and it's that some things he's in on the joke on some things he's just kind of being like no I would have save. I would have stopped nine eleven. Which is just a ridiculous thing to say. And that's the joke of Andy Sandberg's say Heidi Mother for me. Yeah you know portrayal of him is this is like he's kind of total rube but also not. There's something very elusive about. Whatever's going on with an entourage thing it's like. Do you watch entourage because you think it's completely ridiculous or do you watch entourage because you think it's like six awesome representative drama and I dare to say that Mark Wahlberg is like Yup? That's how it went. I you probably think you're right. Insulin entourage Ari comes on and it's really like Whoa but most but he's like that's accurate me. Like Vince is very much living my experience. He's like we should make a show about it. I think. I think that you guys are right. Do you think that this should be five performances or top five movies I choose? I don't know I don't know where I landed. I think I did I tried to be interesting here but I I wouldn't say that any of these performances leap out at me except for my number one and number two as like excellent performances. They're more like movies. I really like was he ever given a truly great performance. Yes I I think. There's one and a half great performances on this movie and it's just a half is the end of boogie nights. No no I. Well that might be the case now. There's another movie I still did performances but I think they are. They are a little bit also an award for the movie knowing how best to use him right. Okay well then let's get into it. Let's go into our top five Mark Wilbur performances slash movies number five Amanda. Why don't you start us off? This goes out to Bill Simmons and apparently to right who I still have never met. Hello Ryan. I'm going with fear. Why not whow revisit? Yes I did okay okay seen Djing
Carnival shares rise even as cruise company warns of ‘material’ COVID-19 impact
"Reporting cannot keep a good market down at the nasdaq up a half a percentage point to doubt nine tenths of one percent and nasdaq up a half a percent to see where the action is underneath the hood return to bluemix accented or Dave Wilson they will look at this morning well what's interesting about today is you you get companies talking about the effect of the corona virus on their business and their shares go walk and he'll look at carnival look at the cruise lines more generally carnival saying that canceled voyages in Los bookings because the corona virus will have a material impact on results no material that sort of standard accounting terms when you got to talk about what's going on and yet the shares are higher by close to three percent wrote Caribbeans up Norwegian cruise line is up another one is PVH I mean that's Calvin Klein Tommy Hilfiger or and you know they had to close some stores in China no surprise a lot of companies have they also get some of their apparel from China so you know when you put it all together they're real farming their earnings forecasts for one's really now it's an estimate for their latest fiscal year and you know they haven't really kind of express a lot of concern about what's ahead so you see PVH shares among the top performers the S. and P. five hundred or a five point seven percent so really looks like one of those days where corona virus at the very least we seize into the background as an issue for companies when it comes to work doing business or perhaps people are just getting a firmer sense of just how vast the liability will be I mean perhaps this is just an issue of perhaps stocks would be even higher and much higher at that if it weren't for the corona virus worry are we getting any sense of of how much of a dampening effect it's had even as we reach new highs well at this point it's kind of hard to see how much of an affect there might even be in the he'll look at how we're doing this year you know you see the S. and P. five hundred up close to four and a half percent the nasdaq higher by almost eight percent today I'd say I just you you can set price alerts on your Bloomberg terminal is set up to with them that are going to be Sir interesting milestones thirty thousand for the Dow industrials it's a twenty nine five hundred almost at this point and ten thousand for the nasdaq composite which it is just below ninety seven hundred right now it just goes to show you you know as this advance keeps calling it almost eleven years into a ball market and me here you're definitely up against some
Theory Founder Andrew Rosen on Fashion's Past and Future
"In Sherman sits down with Andrew Rosen a legendary executive from the New York garment sorry and now he's reached a new stage in his career he's investing in companies Andrew to take stock. Here's Andrew Rosen inside fashion when you were growing up where did you grow up how much outside of Boston Massachusetts in in a real sort of country town no and I I suppose that I didn't really know I was going to my exposure to clothing always when he came home and and you know I would get exposed to it in that way or sometimes he'd bring back I remember exposed to it sort of on the periphery from time to time my dad had a factory in I was doing sorta kids stuff and I was really into golf and I was a so at some point your dad moved his factory to New York or to work after World War Two from my grandfather he like co Tuesday Wednesday comeback Thursday so my dad was when I was growing up did that have to do with factories and being able can you know six early sixties fifties sixties seventies it's just the way it was we my dad's company was addressed company it wasn't until the mid to late seventies that company started to with my dad maybe in the in the late sixties way the business was in those days but you know like everything else new at some point your dad's started manufacturing genes for Calvin Klein Right Calvin Klein jeans business and he within three years he was doing Toriola and and was was really sort of the consummate and he also at that time had done a deal with Diane von Furstenberg to die in Verse Berg Dresses so back in the you know I was very young and Diane was you say that the business that he was doing before there was no future to that and you know it was just the risk reward wasn't to to do that in a big way and he did that with Calvin Klein with it's worth business with Calvin Klein jeans and he made more money with and the opportunity was was so much bigger and you know he quickly I I started working what what made you decide to go did you go to college I really that's sort of what I was into and what happened is and he said I'd be more than happy to speak to can I was nineteen years old and I went in my dad started it was very unusual and spent take about two years this from from the beginning and really under getting a perspective showroom and started selling Calvin Klein jeans in the in the showroom in New York and I sort of had a I guess maybe I had an affinity for it and a year after that my dad got the license to do the men's Calvin Klein jeans and in in one thousand nine hundred seventy seventy eight and was an amazing innovator and we ah pop culture moment because that's really one fashion in the in America especially became a whole new generation of American fashion and designers becoming I think the really the beginning of what was ultimately to come here sadder and I was able to experiment with a lot of things in my mind eight learning experience for me and and and understand asked to weigh in nineteen eighty three and that I was nowhere near ready but in the moment I was just something that that was what I had to do so I had to be ready for it you well I think that there were some things I did really well and some things I didn't do so well and and have a vision and lead people and and Do all the kinds dad but in another way I had to do things the way I was comfortable with not the way my it did it or I felt like I could make my Ogle with that I was lucky with my dad that he and I never had that kind of sort of learning a lot on my own but you know I I as I your dad passed away in and it sounds like he was kind of Ah the first person that would come to mind would be Berry Schwartz but I don't know what kind of relationship I spent some nice time together and have a lot of fun remers about my Dad Barry although he and I had a nice relationship it wasn't the kind of to have that relationship but actually my dad had a his his me and a and a and a great friend and a lot of ways replaced Like I didn't have that kind of I was lucky that I had myles there to be that kind of so theory is is still we're talking like no what nineteen eighty through any right well Barry Schwartz and Calvin Klein it was it was a public company in Barry I ended up staying and working for them and actually was in the same building and I just moved to was down but Alvin things I learned from barrier I think both of them are are great over the years I think that my philosophies were shaped by a number of people I learned so much from from different people over the years what made I stayed was I felt like I wanted to want to walk away from that and when I when the four years later I had proved my worth and What I needed to accomplish and was ready to move on but I I and I think I made the right decision and staying and I think it was it was it was very good post on a Karen Frank Morey and Tommy Line and it was again a great experience for me to a- An- and he and I worked very closely together I think that you we've parted ways that was in one thousand nine hundred ninety six so I was there for your idea for theory what what did you want to do with it you essentially forty years old I was forty years old when I started my company and I companies all my life I had I wanted to be able to do things it was about the quality and integrity of of the clothing we make made in how we did business on and the idea of clothing having more versatility it was wherever they were and so I I wanted to create a company where at that time I was I was doing some work with Ellie Tahari and Elie Tahari voted on Ellie was very excited about the fabric showed it to me I said you know I never expect it would turn into the kind of company it did but it was a bull wearing stretchy fabric like that I remember growing up that order was the comfort and the wearability immediately adopted you know the whole idea the city and so a basic shirt or a basic pair of pants it became very different when you use fabric with Lycra and we were doing was really really sort of changed the way you know national and you could take just a simple pair of sharing and and sourcing fabrics like with that was the thing we were going to own as a company hearted making clothes and and and people started putting them on thank from beginning that it would be a work where

I don't like you said it's not just about this narrative of fast fashion kind of slowly really implemented it became their scope would have been different their stores would have business what the family says goes and if you are not the top nobody could not sign expense reports fast enough kinds of fast no one's a delegate it so important helps you succeed because you know my one really clunky basketball analogy they voted unanimously on Tuesday the day we are recording this podcast to three separate divisions of the ANC AA and so they've all been tasked with figuring going to be the board is going to vote on those proposed change rules athletes I have a lot of restrictions around what they can and cannot do around the world When it comes to college sports those players who play for those big have a lot of our school expenses paid for by scholarships but they are duties are to time you have schools that are selling merchandise that may have for a t-shirt you might be able to find a college athlete who was here and says that per NCWA rules so this could potentially open Aa like just like snap his fingers and Saddle we're GonNa Change this so that it would no longer be illegal for students to earn money from their appearances punishing their athletes if they get endorsement money in that will start in January twenty sourced NC double a. into letting all student athletes southern names their images and their were passed in early twenty twenty it would go into effect in twenty twenty one and which is his way of saying out trust y'all yeah but how much play that pro athlete? Scott I've been watching the world series and Ashby and what they do on the field it's a lot about personality in this physical and so many pro athletes even after their off the field college sports a lot more sustainable for the student athletes that you have time for it but like the fact that you can't make any income while you're right apply the decision. I mean at the very least I think you should own the rights to your own ms how if people decide to delay going professional so that's really interesting to me Oh delaying going pro is such has a lot of potential to be a good athlete right now like I think a lot in four years or three years and and who knows what's going to happen to my career then to go pro and see what items come out I wanna see that fashion for that Shit I will buy all the stuff from the Maryland basketball team endorsements for whatever other sports news I dig up and shove into this show you inject oh it is your favorite subject within the song girl Yeah Apor so many things just ran through my head in the first thing I thought of was alligator baby alligators Milano orders a lot from Sephora and the past year she spent over five thousand ah find a dollar bill and it's folded really really well and then there's a straw aw there wasn't I will continue of a Sephora worker in the package and originated issued an apology one hundred dollars an online credit and she and and that Sephora has zero tolerance policy around illegal inside that box I can think of is that now former wjr like them having their ide- and that stuff shipped out okay so that was my first thought was that somebody got fed up or drop weekly I think it is a possibility and is a little convenient act also like who drops cocaine that's why I don't buy questions about the the state of the coq sounds like Sephora emailed her back yes if you worked at Sephora not give me an apology that's one thing I actually wish I would have gotten but she was like it's okay comment but like a personal touch would be really nice in this situation but orange objects or just on your teeth to see to see swish wine and then spit it don't you don't spit after you rub the coke on your yeah I've seen on TV up until this point lies Somali Yep one last story Swatch isn't going to renew their license with Calvin Klein so their parent company is called Swatch group they decided not to make watches or jewelry under Kwan's they are going to renew the collaborations because of uncertainty they are ending this program so what I'm interested in the story is not then tell us you know maybe that the deal was just they've just yeah we talked about this probably about six months ago like a lot a lot of turmoil.

"The the the big deal daily didn't designer jeans with Calvin Klein in the mid nineteen seventy. So my father was always sort of innovating things and. Trying to evolve and change the way people people dressed in looked at fashion. That was is about my early life. I remember him doing a deal with the Beatles. And we have all these beetle t shirts, beetle, hats and everything back in the nineteen sixties. And you mentioned that you know, he was innovative and Volve constantly evolving. It seems like he was like that in his personal life to can you speak to his kind of personality side of work a lot flashier than I was fancy cars. Maybe even a little fancier dressed. I'm I'm a little more low key, but he just was larger than life, and you know, a character that sort of we rarely see today. And I think maybe it went with the times, and he was incredible person. And a great father to me, and such a great friend to so many people and my dad has passed away thirty five years now, but. There would be frequently people come up to me. It's how I remember your dad or your dad did this. You know, it's really nice to have that memory. And that legacy even though I lost my dad when I was relatively young. I miss him. But there was never an empty feeling. He just he stayed with me and my life for all these years. And I think part of it is that obviously I followed it an industry after him. I also am very interested in thoroughbred racing and breeding, which was also passionate by dads. And although I do think I'm I'm quite different than my dad a lot of my interest in the lot of my way of thinking. And so on. You know, it comes from the same place. There's very little rebellion on your part. It seems I was not a rebellious child at all. I was the youngest of four children. I guess I was always sort of hanging around my mom and dad, and you know, they'd have to take me on chips and so on up. My next sister is three years older than me. So I was sort of the baby that was always maybe a little special rebellion was not part of anything. I thought or whatever what about your mother? My mother was really fantastic woman, very different than my dad, and sort of way, she was she was pretty private, but very eccentric and very creative. And I sort of picked up from my mom, this whole love of the garden and landscaping in the outdoors. And so on a lot of that is what I love to do at at my home in Southampton. Or in New York, some sort of a serial landscaper that way that I got from my mom, my mom was very stylish, and, you know, had a great sense of style both in her homes, and in the way she dressed, and you know, it's really terrific. She passed away now three years ago, and you know, up until the time she passed away I used to speak to three times a week. And what's her name Shirley Rosen? In fact, all of the my codes on all, you know, you now need to have codes on everything is my the year. My mother was born. So I always can remember her now, I know what type in on your ATM, no ATM machine. Instinctively. You're drinking up the fashion industry, just by being around your father, and your grandfather, what are some of your most prominent memories of, you know, being with him at work, you know, even before I went to work. I remember running around my my grandfather's trust factory in Waltham and going through the dresses and just experiencing sort of that whole factory part of the business. I remember my dad bringing close home and us rummaging through them. And also remember when I was young. My dad would always have business people over the house and just sitting there, and observing and and not really understanding what was going on. But just soaking it all in so to speak. So it's true like from an early age. And I don't think my dad ever he never. Wanted me or. Ever said anything about me going into the business to follow him?.

The way they dedicated space individual areas for different brands. I don't know whether it will work, I haven't had enough dialogue. I really didn't study it. I hope it does. Because I like the concept that I know what's happening in other stores as well. Because the idea is people are coming in women are coming into the main floor, and they're seeing cosmetics which used to be the draw. You see it whenever you there. The women being made up at the counters the learning about makeup. So he's been a big draw, but the moving to the second floor because they believe accessories, namely handbags is such a high ticket item. When the women worker the store, and this is who we're talking about mostly women. They will in the store why not hit them first with the most expensive items like handbags, so put it on the main floor. I went into the store. Thinking about the parents who invested in the parents who advised and recommended what should be done. It is an incredible new first floor if the name of the store was Barney's.

An Interview with Fern Mallis, Former CEO of IMG and Co-Creator of New York Fashion Week
"My special guest today is for malice. She was the senior vice president at IMG. She also helped to create fashion week in New York, which has become an iconic and influential program in the worlds of fashion. So let's talk about before fashion week. What was the state of the fashion industry before this event existed, well before fashion week was formally created and organized centralized and modernized, which is what I like to say, we did there were fashion shows. I mean the industry had its biannual timetable to get its collections out in front of buyers. But it was a very very exclusive insider event if you weren't in the industry, you didn't know about it. If you went by building on seven. Avenue. You might think what's going on. There's a line outside getting in or something. If they were fifty shows there weren't fifty different locations, and nobody talked to each other. It was uptown downtown midtown. If somebody had a show in the Pierre hotel in the morning, they'd have to take everything down in the afternoon because somebody had a bar mitzvah there that night. And then somebody wanted to rent it again the next day you'd put it all back in there. It was a bit chaotic sounds complicated and expensive and complicated expensive. And it was it was at a time. When the American designers weren't really well known in reaching out to Europe. The the biggest European expansion was Calvin Klein, maybe doing fragrance. And I'm glad you brought that up because I'm now, my perspective on this is colored by pop culture and movies, like the devil wears Prada. But you very much get the sense that both Paris and Milan were much more structured and organized, or is that just truth, Paris and Milan where the that's where it was that will that's what it was about London. A little bit New York was somewhat of an afterthought, right? New York was treated as their last on the calendar. They're waiting to see what we do in Europe. And they're going to copy us, and it was it was crazy. So I had just been hired. This is back in ninety one. I was selected as the executive director of the CFDA after they did a very long search after I left the design universe of IDC. And why and all of that? Right. And there was this little organization the DA which had done a big aids benefit seventh on sale. And that's when I got involved with them and. I was hired as executive director. It was March of ninety one. And I believe that member exactly I was hired at the end of March. I didn't start till mid April. There was a market weak fashion week between Michael Kors had a show in an empty loft space in Chelsea. And when you turn the base music on in a space for a fashion show. It's very loud. And if things aren't nailed down, they tend to tremble the ceiling trembled and plaster started falling off from the ceiling and the ceiling literally was falling down on the runway. He'd broth rooftop while there you go. Brought the roof down and plaster was on the shoulders of meiomi and Cindy, and Linda and all the one named supermodels of the day. But they kept walking. Right. But when it landed in a lapse of Suzy Menkes from the International Herald Tribune, Carrie Donovan, the fashion critic at the New York Times, they wrote the next day we live for fashion. We don't want to die for it. Anybody and I looked at all that. And I said, I think my job description just changed and it big my job, then started immediately. When I got there to figure out a way to do safe sound places for the American designers do their runway shows. So the concept was let's get all this together in one place one location one week make it safe. Make it accessible make it more reasonable and more efficient amortize the costs for everybody. And so how did you end up finding your way to Bryant park, which if we're talking ninety one Bryant park was little seedy. Yeah. It was on it. It was in the last throes of its renovation the restaurant wasn't there. Right for people who are not familiar with this. Bryant park is basically the full city block behind the new York Public Library in the sixty seventies eighties. It was very much a haven for drugs right needle park. And I used to visit my dad's office on Madison Avenue, he would say if you come in and by train, don't go up fortieth street. And now my office on forty statements is pretty it's one of the most beautiful urban renovation jam ever a jewel of the city. It is it is a very very special place and the lawn there it was like the backyard to the garment center because it was a block away from seventh avenue. Broadway were all the showrooms where I was walking distance everything. There was lots of public transportation and subways block away from Times Square, two blocks from Grand Central. I mean, you don't get a better location Ryan park. It's pretty much smack. In the center of the city, you can get to it from anywhere easily. Yeah. And so we we began my job became find a place. So I was riding around New York. I've looked at every empty pier. Every big parking lot. Can we put tents up here? How big could we do this sand Herman who was the president of the offices? Actually, I'm a corner of fortieth and sixth overlooking Bryant park, and he was on the board of the community board there and work closely with Dan Biedermann, who I know you've interviewed right? He he. Business improvement, Sandra. We wound up eventually making a deal with with Dan and with Bryant park. It was literally the backyard to the to the industry people loved it there, and I used to again for people who may not have actually seen this, and you could find time lapse photography impressive. The part goes from this big open space. That's I don't know. Let's call it half a city block, and that's the lawn and suddenly a giant set tents go up and a little city. Now what they do is in the winter. There's a ice skating rink and a lodge that's temporary shops, right or well, they disappeared January fifteenth. So they're gonna ready, but you still have urban space there, and you still have the ice skating rink. But if you watched fashion week show up it was an amazing bit of logistics to build it. And then you could go see the video, and you don't really you. It's hard to imagine that this. Is temporary space when you see images from the fashion show. It always looks amazing. So how what was it like setting up that first one? He was pretty extraordinary. I mean, we had started I at the Macklowe hotel, which was then became the millennial hotel just to see if we can get more than three designers to do something together because their egos a such that nobody wants to do anything in the same space. But they realize genuine problem at the beginning. Absolutely. Was I I is there jockeying for Lawson. Every absolutely it's it's the war room with them with the slots and moving the posted Ceram till you got us calendar that that's the wedding where all sorts of crazy stuff, and you had to deal with that with much bigger egos. The you could
"calvin klein." Discussed on Off The Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe
"He's being political. Just what do you think? What is your thought about the fact that he is following these accounts and liking them like do you think that is sketchy as a man or no are women's supposed to care about this? Should we feel like if he's liking that that must be the kinda girl he likes? I don't especially with stuff like that. I really don't like to judge a book by its cover sit down with the guy. I have a conversation understand what he's doing where he is. Why is doing it understand his foundation is fundamentals who? He is you can't write a guy off based on that in my opinion. It's just not enough. I think we're writing him off. Okay. So on the flip side, if you're talking to a new girl this girl, and she is following a bunch of young guys with his his like sex has lines showing. And he's he's got PECS. And he's getting. What do you think liking it is that a concern for you? So I think it's it goes both the same for men and women. It doesn't matter if it's a male liking a woman or man, man. I if it was you in the situation with me, what would that be a red team? Now, I saw that you were like liking guys with like Calvin Klein models. I like what the hell you doing? Exactly, right. Yeah. Again, that's Calvin Klein model, that's a profession. Okay. You got. I just want for the record. I'm just walking into this meet. I know what you guys are talking about. But if you're starting to see someone and starting to date someone and they're liking something of that nature. You're probably will why liking right a name. Yeah. I just need to understand the context. That's the context. That's all he has to go have a business call the question is legitimate. That's okay. Thank you. But I think it's I don't think it's fair to like completely judge tells you have the coverage I understand it. We're not judging. We're trying to understand totally. Totally. Yeah. It's definitely something to be like well read flight what's going on. Let's talk about this. There we go all we needed. You could've started with that. Like knowing there's microphones on starts rattling cheese its bag put down wine glasses keys in his. We need to leave soon. Anyways. Get what you wanted this guest. Yes. Oh, yes. Out of the pockets of they've been on him. I'm like he's so politically, correct political. That'd be a hard guest to be recreated on the off the vine in group therapy live it gotta just say on every week because you keep talking and not thinking about what you're talking about..
