This episode my conversation is with Fred Castleberry, the founder of F.E Castleberry in New York City. The conversation starts with talking about tailoring within using elements of sportswear. F.E. Castleberry is one of the menswear labels that caught my eye with its colours and textiles, and of course, the tailoring. Fred, in honesty, talks about how it is hard to create a brand. I think he was the only designer to say the truth, and I appreciate his honesty. Join myself and Fred on a conversation about tailoring, Sportswear, and how it really is like building a brand.
