Thanks to the hard work of Hollywood Access Services, our first three episodes of season two are now captioned on YouTube! We encourage folks with hearing disabilities to enjoy them - and folks without to share them with the people who couldn’t enjoy them before. Our latest episode is above; you can watch episode one here, and two here.

By the way: we’ve had some viewers offer to translate our videos into different languages. We welcome this! Just send us the .SRT files via email, and we’ll add them to the videos. It’s easy to make these files using Universal Subtitles.

Put This On Episode 7: Personal Style

Episode seven of Put This On explores personal style - elegant, quirky, distinctive and everywhere in between.

Field correspondent Dave Hill visits the annual meeting of the Corduroy Appreciation Club, held each year on 11/11, the date which most resembles corduroy. He discovers a magical world, dedicated to the promotion of that most bookish of fabrics, and to the denigration of the sworn enemy of the wale: velvet.

Then Roxana Altamirano brings a new Nerd Boyfriend segment, with an investigation of an icon of eccentric style, Andre Benjamin, aka Andre 3000 of Outkast.

Plus: a conversation with one of the world’s most elegant men, Gay Talese. He’s not just one of America’s most celebrated magazine writers and the man who invented the contemporary magazine profile. He’s also one of the best-dressed men in the world, the son of an immigrant tailor who imbued in his progeny a love of fine clothing. Besides that, he’s got his own lapel shape!

Put This On: A Conversation with Alan Flusser

In this special micro-episode of Put This On, we present a conversation with menswear expert Alan Flusser. Flusser has written the seminal contemporary American texts on getting dressed: Style & the Man and Dressing the Man. He’s also helped create a menswear iPhone app called BeSpeak. He runs Alan Flusser Custom in Manhattan, and famously dressed Michael Douglas for the film Wall Street. While Alan’s worked as a designer of ready-to-wear and has worked closely with tailors for decades, his work at the shop is as neither a designer or a tailor - he’s more like a consiglieri, guiding men towards their best appearance.

Alan’s expertise features heavily in our next episode of Put This On, but we thought we’d take this opportunity to introduce you to one of menswear’s great treasures.
