We’re diving deep into our East Dane team, showing you the people behind our new site. Today, we’re talking to Bryan, East Dane’s apparel buyer.
Name: Bryan LaVine
Position: Men’s Apparel Buyer
LIBBY: How did you get into buying?
BRYAN: I had been doing PR for a while and decided it was time to change paths. So, I applied for an assistant buying job and got it. That was ten years ago, so I guess I made the right move!
LIBBY: Can you describe the East Dane style?
BRYAN: The East Dane style is a mix of modern and classic. It’s for the guy who wants great fit and great quality.
LIBBY: What is a good starter piece for a guy who wants to push his style a bit?
BRYAN: Definitely a navy blazer.
LIBBY: What is your go-to outfit?
BRYAN: I pretty much wear the same thing every day: a navy blazer, light blue shirt, A.P.C. jeans, navy sweater, and suede shoes or boots.
LIBBY: If you could only buy one item for fall, what would it be?
BRYAN: The Mackintosh Dunoon Bonded Raincoat in burgundy. It's awesome.
LIBBY: Any style advice you’d like to share?
BRYAN: Get the fit right. It's the most important thing by far, so we’ve included fit notes for every product.
