Hey Magnus, We'll Be Your Tim Gunn

I just had a brief conversation about jeans and pomade on Twitter with Magnus. He needs some help with his look and he just happened to write a blog post about wanting a Tim Gunn in his life, so here we go.

Saint 21 may not be able to guide Magnus through every step of his life, but we'll give it our best shot. Because we love y'all and we want to give every customer the best service we can.

I've never met Magnus in person, only looked at his blog and his twitter feed. But I found this on YouTube.

Aaaww... charming.
Anyhow, Magnus wants to look sharp. Like Morrissey did in 1992.

Magnus uses a combination of mousse, wax and hairspray most days. My first suggestion is a good quality pomade for his hair, like High Life Pomade in medium or light, depending on how fine his hair is. High Life pomades are not very shiny and that means you won't leave grease stains everywhere.

Next step - denim. The boys at HepCat Store are very good at jeans so ideally Magnus should drop by the shop to try a few styles on. Both Pace and Pike Brothers do very nice jeans in vintage styles. Pace Lowrider raw is one of our current best sellers.

Magnus should loosen up on the Moz style just a little and try something more rock n roll. Lovewright have a nice baseball tee with 3/4 sleeves. Or maybe this classic tee from so-cal speedshop.
Need a new jacket for spring? Try this traditional Harrington jacket in olive green by Brixton.

As a final touch I suggest the latest issue of Men's File and the album Misery by J.Tex.
Magnus, there is a light that never goes out at Saint 21... come and see us!

I should add that Magnus has no idea that I'm writing this and I hope he doesn't kill me.

As I live and breeth, I won't kill you.

On the contrary. I find this quite charming, as Mozzer would put it, and flattering.
No one has ever blogged about me before.

Because of certain rules (otillbörligt gynnande) I can't blogg about your business, but I will needless to say retweet.

I shall consider the rock n' roll style!

Much adoration,

Thank you, good sir!
Och vi är mycket väl medvetna om relgerna för public service. Men du kan ju komma förbi butiken i Lund en dag och säga hej. :)
