Dave Hill Visits New York Fashion Week: 2011

"Hi, I’m Dave Hill for Put This On, coming to you from Fashion Week in New York City, a week-long nightmare where people try, and fail, to look as incredible as me."

As a thank-you for all of the 1,600+ people who backed season two of our show, we sent our correspondent Dave Hill to New York Fashion Week to talk to fashion fans ranging from the exceedingly gracious Bryan Boy to the the exceedingly quiet “Natasha Finkel, Fashionista Feline of the Persian Persuasion.” (Cats can’t talk.)

As always, Dave made some new friends, some new LADY friends, and wowed the world with his dashing style and almost inhuman panache.

"Statistically speaking, we’re standing in the eye of a poon storm."

Kickstart Put This On Season Two!

Put This On is a web series about dressing like a grown-up. In our first series, we took on big ideas in men’s style. We met men who personified elegance, craft and aesthetic passion. We even shared a few goofy tips and tricks.For series two, we’re going to take on the big places. Three world style capitals, selected by our viewers.

This time, we’re doing it professional-style. We’ll be bringing me—the host, Jesse, Thorn—plus a director and a producer to these three cities. There, we’ll crew up and investigate what makes these cities so special. We’ll probably make some stupid jokes, too.

Travel and crew costs are no joke, of course. Our fundraising goal is $68,000. From that, we plan to make at least two episodes in every city we visit, and pay for equipment, staff time, shooting and editing. We’ve got tons of rewards—the folks who pay for our videos are producers, and we credit everyone. We’ve also got some fun stuff on offer, so be sure to check out the list. If you’re a business and you’d like to sponsor the series or an episode, we can make that happen, too—email us at contact@putthison.com.

Kickstarter’s principles are simple: if we don’t meet our goal, you won’t pay anything, and we won’t get anything. If you want to see season two of our show, we’ve got to make this happen.

Everything that’s gone right with Put This On has come from our viewers. We’ve brought the invitation to fund season two directly to you, and we hope you can fulfill it. If you want to see Put This On take on the world, support season two, now.
