A good friend of mine sells clothes! Now he's going to sell a lot more!

 Well most of you around here in Alabama know Billy or know of him.  He's been a good friend since he came here and all of us (locals) are all very proud and happy for his success. For all my friends not aware of Billy,  here is the latest on the boy.  (see full  article)  from GQ.

And the Winner Is…

Last night, at an energized, jam-packed event at Manhattan's IAC building, we kicked off New York Fashion Week by celebrating the six finalists in our 2010 search for the Best New Designer in America. Each of the designers—from a transplanted Dutch veteran of preppy casualwear to two globetrotting (and enterprising) brothers—could have taken the title, but right now we couldn't be more pleased to announce that the recipient of the 2010 GQ/CFDA Best New Menswear Designer in America Award (along with a $50,000 cash prize and the opportunity to create a limited edition Levi's collection for Bloomingdale's) is... Billy Reid.
A true fashion journeyman, Billy won the CFDA best new men's designer award in 2001, but after investing in the production of his collection, his business was confronted with the grim reality of September 11th. Eight months after the attack, he moved home to Alabama, starting anew with his Billy Reid label in 2004. He now has seven stores selling clothes you could imagine William Faulkner wearing at his dapper peak, with bold shots of color mixed in at just the right moments.
Today we kick off a celebration of our Best New Menswear Designer finalists with a series of behind-the-scenes video studio visits by creative director Jim Moore and fashion editor Damien Nunes. Tune in for a new video, spotlighting each of the nominees in their own creative spaces, each day over the next week. Today we begin—naturally—with Billy Reid:

About Me

My photo
I’m a Southern Boy, just 56 last November, I get around here and there, Central America, Africa, Red Bay. I’m a Father, Grandfather, Husband, Artist and general flunky of sorts. Live in a little historic town in an old building I remodeled. Just wanted to hear myself think I guess, talk about the need of simplification, show some art, express an interest or two, brag on my dogs and see where it goes. That’s it!, That’s the deal, Thanks
