One sunny afternoon a gentleman in his late 40s walked into Rowing Blazers‘ New York pop-up on Rivington Street. He asked the brand’s founder, Jack Carlson, to join him next door for ice cream at Morgenstern’s, where he proceeded to offer Carlson unsolicited advice about his line. The man was a Princeton graduate, preppy and pleased with the brightly colored rowing blazers and rugby shirts Carlson designed, but didn’t like the T-shirts he created with Joe’s Pizza.
“He said something like, ‘They have no place in the brand,'” recalled Carlson, who is 31. “I was polite, but in my mind I was thinking it’s my brand and if I think it’s cool, then it makes sense. There are people who don’t quite get it, but you never hear any of these comments from younger people.”

In a custom Dior dress fit for a supermodel, @karliekloss married her longtime love, @joshuakushner, in upstate New York yesterday evening. No word yet on honeymoon plans or, more interesting, the guest list. Kloss’ new sister-in-law, Ivanka Trump, did however share her congratulations when they couple became engaged in the summer. “So, so happy for you and Josh! I feel blessed to have you as a sister (!!!) Karlie and look forward to the happy memories we will create together as a family!” wrote Trump on Instagram.
