Menswear specialty store Paul Stuart has invited bloggers and stylists to do its windows, and will keep them on view for the rest of the month. WWD points out that this is the first time in the company's history—all 73 years of it—that bloggers have been asked to do the windows, though that's not so surprising given that blogging is a phenomenon that came with the invention of the Internet. Stylists, however, have been around forever, and WWD adds that this is the first time they've been involved, too.
Window designers include Christopher Callis from Men of Habit, Lawrence Schlossman of Sartorially Inclined, Esquire's Nick Sullivan, and Michael Williams of A Continuous Lean. Each participant was given "free reign" to style the Paul Stuart items as they saw fit, but there was one requirement: They had to make sure they incorporated tweed into their display. Rules are rules.
