Adam Lisagor: The Video Guru
Our co-founder and EP Adam Lisagor gets a lovely writeup in the “People” issue of LA Weekly. It’s a lovely piece about Adam’s primary business, Sandwich Video, and the wonderful videos he produces for great companies around the world.
And for those keeping track, that’s TWO PTO co-founders who’ve been featured in that particular annual publication, as I was featured in the 2009 edition.

Adam Lisagor: The Video Guru

Our co-founder and EP Adam Lisagor gets a lovely writeup in the “People” issue of LA Weekly. It’s a lovely piece about Adam’s primary business, Sandwich Video, and the wonderful videos he produces for great companies around the world.

And for those keeping track, that’s TWO PTO co-founders who’ve been featured in that particular annual publication, as I was featured in the 2009 edition.

The Style Girlfriend, Megan Collins, recommends the PTO Gentlemen’s Association in her latest syndicated column.

Thanks to Maximum PC for including us on their list of 72 Websites You Don’t Want To Miss. Lots of other great sites on the list, as well.

And speaking of gentlemen, you’re unlikely to meet a finer one than Jesse Thorn, born and bred in San Francisco and host of the splendid "Put This On" webisodes. On Tuesday, Season 1 of his and Adam Lisagor’s terrific series of men’s style videos about “dressing like a grown-up” comes out on DVD. Although you can catch the series at www.putthison.com, the DVD comes with a raft of extras and what Thorn called extended “Charlie Rose cuts” of interviews with menswear icons like Gay Talese and Alan Flusser. The DVD costs $16, or three for $30; Season 2 debuts online Tuesday as well.

Jesse just got interviewed by Say. Big thanks to the folks over there for giving us some shine!
Also, for those curious about Bobby from Boston, which Jesse mentions in the interview, check out this video on Bobby Garnett.

As producers Jesse Thorn and Adam Lisagor say, Put This On is “a Web series about dressing like a grownup.” More specifically, it’s about men dressing like grownups. In the men’s-fashion world, it’s tough to find advice that’s practical and smart, because the general pool from which to choose is far smaller than in the women’s-fashion online world.
This isn’t to lessen the impact of Put This On — it would stand out even in a sea of men’s-fashion blogs. Put This On features high-end wares found at reasonable prices and provides easy-to-use guides on how men can make what they wear part of who they are. Thorn and Lisagor employ a variety of methods — link aggregation, videos, narratives, Q&As — to offer information to men who want to dress well and be sophisticated without a lot of hassle and without being talked down to as if they’ve never worn clothes before.

Yup, we made it. (I think. I don’t speak Italian.)

Edit: here’s a translation from reader Luigi (thanks, Luigi!):

Jesse Thorn is a 30-something who is laying down the law in the United States thanks to his aesthetic and artistic sensibility. He is well known for expressing his opinions on radio and tv, and is contacted every day by young men thanking him for changing their lives. His blog, “Put this on”, teaches to “dress like a grown-up.” The organization of posts by topics makes it easy to navigate the site neatly and intuitively.

[Technically, by the way, I’m a thirty-nothing, not a thirty-something ;).)

How do you know you’re officially official? Perhaps when there’s a profile of you in GQ. They followed me on a day of sartorial indulgence in LA - a fitting with a tailor, one with our friend Raul (from our shoes episode) at his new store Don Ville, and a pile of thrift stores.
My thanks to Shona Sanzgiri, who wrote the piece, and Gordon de los Santos, who shot the beautiful photos.

“Not only does [Put This On] spread enthusiasm and knowledge about the art of dressing well, but it does so in a manner that never condescends.” — Thanks, Michigan Daily!
