As a part of our Father's Day Facebook photo contest with our friends at Steven Alan (have you entered?), we had the pleasure of chatting with the uber cool designer. As one of our go-to brands for classic American tailoring with city cred, we couldn't wait to learn more about this creative urban dad.
Meet Steven Alan...
Q: Where are you originally from?
A: Manhattan. I lived in Arizona and California and came back around 20 years ago.
Q: Where do you live now?
A: Downtown, and I bike to work.
Q: Describe your everyday style.
A: Messy, subversive, and classic.
Q: What’s your 9-to-5 job?
A: In addition to running the retail, web and wholesale branches of the company, I’m constantly looking out for new talent to represent in our showroom.
Q: What is your favorite part about your home?
A: The views.
Q: How do you balance your work, personal and family lives?
A: With difficulty—I get up early to spend time with my family and weekends are all about the kids.
Q: Where are your favorite places to go with your kids in your neighborhood?
A: My son is currently really into basketball, so we go to the courts on Worth Street; he can play and skateboard there. New Museum is close to our house, and we make a Sunday morning pilgrimage to Russ & Daughters for the best smoked fish.
