        What happens when a hundred artisans become a few global megacompanies? We went to Milan, Italy, to talk to small-scale makers who work in the shadow of fashion conglomerates like Prada. Take Antonio Pio Mele, a cobbler who makes shoes by hand in a small shop in central Milan. He's grateful that huge brands occasionally hire him to make samples, but he's angry they rarely pay him on time and that their "bespoke" operations are rarely genuinely bespoke. Scholar Alex Pietrogiacomi provides some philosophical context, and photographer Simone Falcetta explains how consolidation has changed the fashion world. We also talk to Milanese dandy Pino Pipoli, Dave Hill offers a rudiment about black suits, and the beautiful Valentina Galbiati gives us a guided tour of Milan's most influential and beautiful boutique, 10 Corso Como. —- Executive Producers: Jesse Thorn & Adam Lisagor Director: Benjamin Ahr Harrison Host / Writer / Producer: Jesse Thorn Rudiments: Dave Hill Producer: Gianluca Migliarotti Director of Photography: Daniele Vascelli Sound: Daniele Belli Editor: Todd Thoenig and Benjamin Ahr Harrison Subtitle Translation: Giovanni D’Amico

          Put This On visits London to look at the ways it has been shaped by (and has reinvented) its menswear traditions. We visit W. Bill, the legendary tweed vendor in a basement just off Savile Row. We talk with the painter and musician Ian Bruce about how he's reshaped the legacy of the SoHo dandy. We visit the Drake's factory to see how a tie is made. Then we go to Savile Row, and chat with tailor-owner Richard Anderson and owner-designer Patrick Grant about the tension between old and new in the world's original tailoring street. Plus Dave Hill offers his thoughts on sport sunglasses in Rudiments.

            Profile of editor Lewis Lapham from Put This On. Lapham is the publisher of Lapham's Quarterly, and was the longtime editor of Harper's. He says that when you're dressed well, you can engage any story. Flaubert, even at his poorest, carried two gold coins in his pocket, to give him "a sense of weight." For Lapham, a suit gives him this same sense.

              Put This On, a web series about dressing like a grownup, visits New York City, a place where style is defined and redefined through interpretation and reinterpretation. Meet the 'Lo Heads. With roots in 1980s street gangs, these Polo Ralph Lauren enthusiasts have made "aspirational apparel" a lifestyle. They once had to boost their Polo from stores and fight to keep it on the streets. Today, their culture is worldwide, promulgated by hip-hop. Their hero is Ralph Lauren - a working class New Yorker who understood that the fantastical power of style can be transformative. Dallas Penn from The Internets Celebrities, a dedicated Lo Head (and former member of the Decepts crew) with a collection of over 1000 pieces of Polo apparel takes us on a tour of this remarkable fashion subculture. Visit Worth & Worth hat shop, a New York institution with roots going back to 1922. In recent memory, Orlando Palacios has made the shop a home for rockers as well as traditionalists, turning hundred-year-old machines to the task of reinterpreting hundred-year-old styles. Meet Jason Marshall, a jazz saxaphonist with a classic style. He plays with bands ranging from traditional bop to hip-hop fusion to Aretha Franklin, but he prefers to wear tailored clothes when he does it, and explains why. And in our Q & Answer segment, find out how to pack your suit for travel. We'll show you a fold to keep it neat inside a rolling carry-on or suitcase, and we'll show you how to keep your trousers on the hanger inside a garment bag.

                  Sean Crowley is a neckwear designer for a Major Brand (we can't tell you who, but it's probably the pre-eminent name in menswear in America). He lives in a Brooklyn apartment crammed floor to ceiling with the accoutrements of a gentleman's lifestyle, from rowing paddles to cocktail ingredients to neckties. Thousands and thousands of neckties, which hang on a custom rack he built with his father. In this special bonus preview segment for Season Two of Put This On, a web series about dressing like a grownup, he talks about his obsession with collecting (some would say hoarding) ties, and how his style became his style. Season Two of Put This On premiers on Tuesday, March 13th.

                      Episode seven of Put This On explores personal style - elegant, quirky, distinctive and everywhere in between. Field correspondent Dave Hill visits the annual meeting of the Corduroy Appreciation Club, held each year on 11/11, the date which most resembles corduroy. Then Roxana Altamirano brings a new Nerd Boyfriend segment, with an investigation of an icon of eccentric style, Andre Benjamin, aka Andre 3000 of Outkast. Plus: a conversation with one of the world's most elegant men, Gay Talese. He's not just one of America's most celebrated magazine writers and the man who invented the contemporary magazine profile. He's also one of the best-dressed men in the world, the son of an immigrant tailor who imbued in his progeny a love of fine clothing. Besides that, he's got his own lapel shape!
